    The coconut oil has likely hardened. Place it in a warm spot in our house… like your shower.
    You can also add the container you are storing it in, to a bowl of hot water (make sure the sugar scrub is closed) for a few minutes. That will warm up the coconut oil and bring it back to its liquid state.

  2. I made this exactly like the recipe yesterday and today the sugar scrub is hard as a rock. What did I do? Any suggestions?
