This DIY easy homemade sugar scrub exfoliates and moisturizes all at once.  Your skin will feel brand new, incredibly soft, and luxurious. It is simple to make yourself with just two main ingredients that you likely already have!

Since it is homemade you know exactly what is in it and that it's non toxic.

This recipe is so quick to make, and much cheaper than buying it in-store! It's made from just two main ingredients. There are a ton of add-in opportunities here, since the base of this recipe smells neutral and is very simple. If you know someone with sensitive skin or extreme allergies, though, the classic sugar scrub without add-ins would be so appreciated!

½ cup coconut oil. Use unrefined coconut oil at room temperature, so it's either very soft or completely liquid and easy to stir in.
¼ cup sugar (brown or white)

Optional: 2 tablespoons citrus zest (such as orange, lemon or grapefruit) Citrus is said to boost your mood and energy.


For more of a spa vibe, 10 drops of your favorite essential oil such as lavender, eucalyptus etc.

This is a great basic starter set of essential oils that I love.  Each of those scents would make a wonderful addition to the scrub and add extra benefit.

If you don’t want any fragrance or benefits other than the scrub you can simply leave the essential oils out.

How to Use Sugar Scrub

I use ½ tablespoon on both my hands, rub them gently together for 20 seconds, then rinse with water. I pat them dry, and my hands feel like silk! 
I also like to use it on my legs before I shave in order to get rid of dead skin cells.
It doubles as the perfect DIY gift! I love to include a pretty wooden spoon tied to the jar when I give it as a gift along with a note containing instructions on how to use it.  

You can also color your scrub with a little bit of Mica powder.

Note: Do not use food coloring as it contains water and can cause bacteria to grow in the scrub.
