DIY Make your own body scrub quesion

Hi everyone. DO you make your own skincare items?

I just made my first body scrub with 1 part coconut oil and 1 part sugar. I love it. It's so much fun to make my own skincare item.

But I just started worrying about its effect on the drain. Would oil like coconut oil, olive oil, jojoba oil, almond oil, avocado oil, or coco butter clog the drain when used in things like body scrub or shaving cream in the shower?

I had a landlord that said it would but I have never actually talked to a plumber or septic guy. We pour boiling water down our drains about once a week to help clean them. Something like that might help, but I don't really know. We use an olive oil soap but its in solid form and it melts. It never feels oily just like soap. I only use oils (that would go down the drain) occasionally. I usually use milk, oatmeal and honey as a scrub. then follow with lotion or oil. I also use it to wash my face daily. (the oatmeal is ground into a powder and mixed with powdered milk).
