Easiest Sugar Scrub Recipe (great diy gift)

fabulous-diy-sugar-scrubThe season of giving gifts is quickly approaching.  If you need lots of DIY gifts for friends or want to do a fun group activity this sugar scrub is a fabulous option and at less than $2.50 a jar, it won’t break the bank!  With the below ingredients, you can make a total of 64 jars.  You can use it without essential oils or customize it to your preference.  If you’re doing a group activity I would recommend purchasing 100 mL bottles (approximately 660 drops per bottle) of Palmarosa and Cedarwood Himalayan for a fabulous, KidSafe, Pregnancy safe(after the first trimester), and nursing safe relaxing aroma.

What you’ll need:
  • 64 4 ounce Amber Jars
  • 10 lb white sugar (2.5 ounces per jar)
  • 1 gallon Fractionated Coconut Oil (1.5 ounces per jar)
  • 960 drops of essential oil (15 drops per jar)
What you’ll do:
  1. Combine the ingredients in a glass bowl.
  2. Stir well to combine and scoop 4 ounces into each jar.
To use:

Use a small handful to scrub your legs in the shower, rinse well. The carrier oil leaves behind a light layer of oil keeping moisture in! I often shave right after without any need for shaving cream, just use the carrier oil left behind!  Be careful not to get water in the scrub as this can cause bacterial growth.

  • How long is this good for without a preservative? What preservative would be best if i decide to put one in?

  • What are some oils you recommend using for sugar scrubs? Everyone in my house loves all the citrus oils, but I wondering if they are the best to use because of the photosensitivity? This is a great, easy diy! My daughter is making to sell at her school Christmas fair.

  • This is one of my favorite recipes. I especially like using distilled lime or distilled lemon (since I’m a big fan of citrus’) . I also made extras around the Holiday’s and gave them to family and friends – they really enjoyed them!

  • To answer the question about reducing this recipe: I just made it with 1 cup sugar, 1/2 cup coconut oil, and 15 drops Honeybell EO (May 2018 OOTM). The consistency seemed pretty good, though perhaps a little runny for some people’s taste, in which case they could just add a bit more sugar. I also felt that the scent of the Honeybell wasn’t quite strong enough, so I added a few more drops!

    1. Thanks for the feedback Susan! I know this will be so helpful for other customers. Have a great day!

    1. Yes I would just divide by 64 (the jars this recipe makes), then multiply it by the number of jars you want to make.
