I am officially in love with coconut. I love the smell, the texture and the taste and use lots of it daily, as a natural face and body moisturiser or a natural hair mask. I also love it in my creams and scrubs. I finally tried frying pancakes with coconut oil and they were absolutely delicious! I usually melt a knob of natural and pure coconut butter in my palms and then rub it to my hair, but this time I decided to experiment and add a drop or two of rosemary essential oil for even better hair care. I love rosemary in my food and in my beauty potions. Rosemary oil helps in stimulating follicles, as a result of which, hair grow stronger.

Once you combined all the ingredients, pour the mixture into a pot. Make sure you treat your feet well with this scrub, it will leave them baby soft! Be careful, this scrub, just like any other scrubs, …
