Simple Sugar Scrub

Want to have clean, fresh and younger looking skin? Handcraft your own exfoliant with simple ingredients without stripping your skin’s natural oil. Tone and energize your skin by adding only ingredients you know!

Sugar scrubs are a simple beauty recipe which exfoliates and hydrates the skin leaving it soft, supple, and more radiant. Only three ingredients and you can achieve the desired outcome. They are suitable for face, body, and especially feet. They are extremely easy to customize and it takes less than ten minutes to make.

Your homemade natural sugar scrub combines therapeutic qualities allowing your skin to have its natural glow back! Sugar is an excellent skin exfoliator that seals in moisture, gently removes dead skin cells and cleanses dirt and bacteria from the pores.

Your choice of olive oil, coconut oil or jojoba oil will hydrate and nourish the skin. You can scent with your favorite essential oil for added aromatherapy and healing benefits. Great natural substitute of essential oils are herbs (such as lavender buds, rose petals, calendula flowers) or citrus peels (such as lemon, orange or grapefruit peel).


1/2 CUP SUGAR (white or brown sugar)

1/4 CUP OIL (olive oil, coconut oil or jojoba oil are great options)

15-20 DROPS ESSENTIAL OILS OF YOUR PREFERENCE (lavender, geranium, lemon, or grapefruit are excellent choice)


Mix all ingredients and store in an air tight jar. Use 1 tablespoon as needed in the shower. Gently massage skin with the mixture avoiding the eye area. Leave on for up to 3-5 minutes and rise with warm water. Can be used 2-3 times a week. Stir before each use.
