Put The Lime In the Coconut....

Well, I'm sharing another video.  This one is pretty bizarre but it was the best one for this song and I thought the gorillas were a nice touch! :-)  It is long so don't worry about watching it all the way through...just watch it long enough so that you get the gist of the song!



Since I had all of the ingredients, I decided to make another sugar scrub to compliment the Peppermint Scrub I made.


This one is just as refreshing but has lots of summery overtones - Coconut Lime or Lime Coconut, whatever floats your boat!  I'm not the sugar scrub naming police so choose the name you like! :-)


Coconut Lime Sugar Scrub

1/4 cup coconut oil
1 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon shredded coconut
6-8 drops of essential lime oil OR 6-8 drops of lime juice

Melt the coconut oil in the microwave for 30 seconds.  Mix in the sugar until thoroughly blended.  Add shredded coconut and lime oil or juice.  Blend thoroughly.

I think you will enjoy it.


You should play the video while you mix up the scrub.  Then, while you are in the shower using this wonderful scrub, you can dance around a little and sing this song, as it is one of those that sticks with you.  You know, like the "Banana Boat Song" in Beetlejuice!


Hey, what can I say...what this post lacks in substance it makes up for in cheap entertainment!

Enjoy the scrub!

  2. Yes, definitely entertaining! Coconut and lime are two flavors I just love to eat....why not scrub it on my body? Another great recipe to try!

    1. Thank you ma’am! Definitely tropical and the gorillas were a bit creepy! :-) The scrub is easy peasy, smells good and would probably taste wonderful! Thankfully I kept the spoon out of my mouth!

    1. You are hilarious!! Did you get someone to video you doing the conga to the banana boat song? I would pay good money to see that!! The scrub is awesome! :-) Have some with your Pina Colada! Have a great evening! Hugs!!

  5. Strange - I was singing this song earlier this morning. Love the gorillas. Where do you get coconut oil and essential oils? You have convinced me I need a new craft - sugar scrubs! In the next day-o will there be banana sugar scrub with a touch of rum?

    1. It must be going around then…LOL. The coconut oil can be found at Walmart…surprisingly in two places. They have it in with the cooking oils and some variety in with the herbs and vitamins. Essential oils can be ordered from someone you might know who sells them or you can pick them up at GNC. I think GNC may sell coconut oil also. I found my oils at Walmart. They are not as great as a company like doTerra, but they work for what I’m using them for. YUM…that sounds wonderful. May have to find a recipe-o for that scrub/drink! :-)
