  • 1/3 cup finely shredded unsweetened dried coconut
  • 1/3 cup course Celtic sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons melted virgin coconut oil 
  • 2/3 cup fresh mint leaves, finely chopped


  1. Divide the shredded coconut in half, and place one half in the small bowl of a food processor fitted with the s blade, coffee grinder, or spice grinder and pulse for 10 t0 15 seconds until the coconut pieces are about half the size and some of the coconut is powdery.
  2. In a small bowl, place the processed coconut and add the shredded coconut, and stir together with the salt and coconut oil. Gently toss through the mint, massaging to release the scent. 
  3. Use immediately, or transfer the scrub to a sealed glass container in the fridge.
  4. *The scrub will keep in the fridge for 2 to 3 days. Bring the scrub to room temperature before using to soften the coconut oil. Do not use on the face or on previously irritated skin, and use in the shower with a drain strainer/catcher that will filter the bits of mint and coconut. Alternatively, place a paper towel or washcloth over the drain to catch the food residue.
