DIY Essential Oil Sugar Scrub

DIY Essential Oil Sugar Scrub

Taking time out from life to take care of ourselves isn’t always easy, but let’s face it… we all need a little TLC to stay healthy (& sane!..). Sugar scrubs are a great way to exfoliate and moisturise your whole body in the shower & it is super fast to do! The below sugar scrub is made easily with 3 everyday ingredients you probably already have in your home – Sugar, Coconut Oil & Essential Oils!


What You Need:

  • 1 Cup of Granulated or Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup of Melted Coconut Oil (hemp oil or grape seed oil are also good options)
  • Your favourite Essential Oils – We used a combination of Tea Tree Oil & Lavender in this blend

To Make:

  1. Melt coconut oil in  the microwave until it is completely liquid (around 25-30 seconds)
  2. Pour the sugar & coconut oil into a bowl. If it seems a little too wet, add a small amount of sugar to the bowl, until you get a consistency that you like.
  3. Add drops of essential oil (we used 15 drops of Tea Tree & 15 of Lavender)
  4. Mix well
  5. Transfer into an air-tight jar & you are good to go!

The Benefits of using a Sugar Scrub

It’s beneficial to exfoliate your body and face no matter your skin type – dry skin, oily skin, combination skin, acne-prone skin. Getting rid of those dead skin cells can improve your skin along with helping to remove make up, evening out your skin tone, get a closer shave & keeping your pores clean!

Give it a try yourself & add it into your own Bath Time Self Care Routine then wrap yourself up in our skin loving Bamboo Bath Towels for the perfect combination!
