Vata people and kapha people might usually find coconut oil too cold to use. But in the heat of the summer coconut oil is such a panacea of soothing bliss!

Coconut oil has many applications. It is great for soothing your skin after a day in the sun. It’s lovely to mix with salt as an exhilarating, exfoliating scrub. And it is absolutely wonderful as a topping to popcorn.

Exfoliating Coconut Oil Body Scrub is one of my absolute favorite recipes to make with this healthy oil.

Exfoliating Coconut Oil Body Scrub

Coconut Oil Body Scrub


  • 1 cup coconut oil
  • 3 tbsp coarse sea salt
  • 4 drops essential oil of eucalyptus or mint


  1. Mix all ingredients together.
  2. Rub your entire body down with this gorgeous scrub. It softens and exfoliates at the same time.
  3. This is a great product to keep near your shower. But do keep it out of reach of water!

I hope you enjoy this fun coconut recipe. In Ayurveda, coconut oil is considered to soothe the element of fire and bring peace to the mind and body. For more cooling coconut oil recipes, try my Coconut Oil Popcorn With Dark Chocolate Drizzle or my Rosy Love Coconut Massage Oil.

Happy summer!
