Homemade body scrub for glowing skin
I’m so excited to share this post with you! Homemade body scrubs are my thing. I absolutely love creating fun sugar scrub recipes and play with different scent and colour combos. And today, I have not 1, but 6 different exfoliating scrubs for you!
Each recipe is made with natural ingredients and doesn’t take longer than 5 minutes! What I love most about making DIY sugar scrubs is that you know exactly what’s in your homemade body scrub. Creating sugar scrubs at home also allows you to customise the recipes to your skincare needs and preferences.
Sugar scrub benefits
What does a sugar scrub do for your skin? Let’s talk about sugar scrub benefits for a moment! The main purpose of a sugar scrub is to exfoliate and remove dead skin cells, revealing new skin. My homemade body scrub recipes are easy to spread on and will leave your skin cleansed, exfoliated, soft and moisturised.
The best sugar scrub recipes for beautiful, glowing skin
In this post you’ll learn 6 different sugar scrub recipes for:
- soothing lavender sugar scrub
- elegant rose sugar scrub
- brightening lemon sugar scrub
- comforting vanilla sugar scrub
- refreshing mint sugar scrub
- revitalizing coffee sugar scrub
In this post, I’m focusing on different sugar scrub recipes and their skincare benefits. To learn more about formulating spa-style sugar scrubs for body, including tips for choosing the best sugar, carrier oils, and other ingredients, check out my beginner’s guide to DIY sugar scrubs.
Materials and supplies for the sugar scrub recipes
Let’s take a peek at the ingredients for our homemade sugar scrub recipes:
- sugar – What is the best sugar for body scrub? DIY sugar scrubs can be prepared with a variety of sugars. I mostly use granulated sugar or brown sugar, but try different types to see what is best for your skin type.
- fractionated coconut oil – I love a homemade coconut oil body scrub! Fractionated coconut oil is lightweight, odourless and inexpensive. Coconut oil is very hydrating and will give your skin a silky feel and healthy glow.
- essential oils – Essential oils not only lend a natural fragrance to the body scrub recipes, but also provide different skincare and aromatherapeutic benefits.
- vitamin E oil – Vitamin E is one of the best ingredients to nourish, hydrate, and rejuvenate the skin. Another benefit is that the antioxidant properties of vitamin E also protect the carrier oil from oxidation (= going rancid) and help to prolong the shelf life of the DIY sugar scrub.
- botanicals and other exfoliants – Some of the sugar scrub recipes use botanicals, such as rose petals, citrus zest, and coffee grounds, as co-exfoliants and natural colourants.
- colourants (optional) – Some ingredients, such as citrus zest, mint leaves, rose petals and coffee grounds, will naturally colour your sugar scrub recipe. If preferred, use mica powder, mineral-based cosmetic powder, to make the colour stronger.
How to make an easy sugar scrub recipe
Ready to try our DIY sugar scrub recipe? Let’s do it! It’s just 4 easy steps and 5 minutes prep! Here is how to make your own exfoliating scrub:
- Blend the oil phase. Add the carrier oil, essential oils, and vitamin E into a jar or small mixing bowl and stir to combine.
- Prep the sugar base. Put the sugar, mica powder and other dry ingredients (e.g. coffee grounds) into a large mixing bowl. Stir to combine.
Tip: If using botanicals (e.g. rose petals or mint leaves), place the sugar and botanicals into a food processor and blend until combine and the botanicals are well dispersed.
- Mix the sugar scrub. Pour the oils over the sugar and combine.
- Store the sugar scrub. Transfer the sugar scrub into airtight glass jars or storage containers and store sealed until ready to use.
This simple process is the same for all of the following six DIY sugar scrub recipes.
6 Easy body scrub recipes
Now that we know how to make sugar scrub and its benefits, let’s explore 6 sugar scrub recipes!
The exact measurements are in the DIY box at the end of the post!
Lavender sugar scrub
Perfect for cleansing and exfoliating, my fragrant lavender sugar scrub helps to lift away dead skin cells and prepare the skin for moisture. Lavender essential oil has numerous skincare uses. Adding this oil to your sugar scrub can be beneficial for several skin issues.
Lavender sugar scrub benefits
What is lavender sugar scrub good for? This lavender sugar scrub recipe promotes healthy, great-looking skin! The oil’s anti-inflammatory properties soothe and nourish dry skin, while antioxidants help protect the skin from free radical damage. Lavender may even help with eczema and psoriasis.
How to make homemade lavender body scrub
Making homemade sugar scrub is as easy as mixing the oil phase with the sugar. A small amount mica powder gives a beautiful lavender colour. Without a colourant, the body coconut oil sugar scrub will simply appear white. You can also sprinkle dried lavender buds into your scrub for an extra pretty presentation.
How does lemon lavender sugar scrub sound? Wonderful! If you wish to add a little more punch to the simple body scrub recipe, use half lavender half lemon essential oil (steam-distilled). Another idea is to make a lavender vanilla sugar scrub recipe.
Rose sugar scrub
Exfoliating feels exquisite with this beautiful rose sugar scrub! Infused with rose otto, it gently exfoliates to reveal smoother, fresher skin. Crushed rose petals and a wonderful floral scent will add a touch of luxury to your exfoliating routine.
DIY rose scrub benefits
Exfoliating with this homemade rose scrub is a beautiful experience! Rose essential oil has many skin benefits when used topically. The oil’s antibacterial qualities are effective to fight the bacteria responsible for acne. Its anti-inflammatory properties and anti-oxidant content, make rose an excellent anti-ageing essential oil.
Studies also show that rose oil decreases stress and anxiety and promotes wellbeing. I love using this rose body scrub in the shower and feel refreshed and relaxed afterwards.
How to make homemade rose body scrub
This easy sugar scrub recipe can be made with fresh or dried rose petals. Simply add the sugar and rose petals to a food processor and blend until both ingredients are combined. Pink rose petals create a soft pink hue. Optionally, add a little pink mica for a stronger pink colour.
I scented the sugar body scrub with rose otto essential oil. If you can’t find rose otto, use 2 tbsp rose water. Since rosewater is hydrous, either use the product quickly or add a preservative to make the rose body scrub last longer.
If you want to switch it up, add 1 tsp vanilla extract or 20 drops vanilla oleoresin to make vanilla rose sugar scrub.
Lemon sugar scrub
The perfect scrub to get summer-ready, this crisp and refreshingly scented lemon sugar scrub leaves skin soft and silky. This exfoliating body scrub with lemon essential oil is ideal for normal to oily skin types.
Benefits of lemon sugar scrub
Used in a scrub, lemon essential oil nourishes, cleanses, and exfoliates the skin and clears up skin issues such as oiliness and acne. The oil’s astringent property rejuvenates and conditions the skin. Lemon body scrub lightens and evens out the skin tone, and I also find that this clean-smelling oil enhances my mood and energy.
How to make DIY lemon body scrub
How do you make lemon sugar scrub? It’s super simple! Grate the zest of one organic lemon and mix with the sugar. Then combine with the oil phase and you’re done! I scented the scrub with steam-distilled lemon essential oil, but lemon extract can be used instead.
Instead of using lemon, prepare the recipes with other members of the citrus family, such as orange, lime or grapefruit. When using grapefruit or lime, makes sure the essential oils are steam distilled, not cold-pressed.
Vanilla sugar scrub
My indulgent vanilla sugar scrub has a warm, comforting scent and is a true treat for your skin! Raw cane sugar and vanilla seeds gently exfoliate, while nourishing coconut oil softens and conditions the skin, leaving it feeling soft and touchable.
Vanilla sugar scrub benefits
I find the scent of vanilla relaxing and calming, which is why I like to use the homemade vanilla scrub at night. Vanilla is said to soothe inflammation and has antioxidant properties that neutralise free radicals, aiding in anti-ageing skincare.
The use of raw cane sugar is perfect to buff away callous skin on elbows, knees, and the bottom of the feet and heels.
How to make DIY vanilla body scrub
How do you make a vanilla body scrub? I created this vanilla scrub by mixing cane sugar with vanilla oleoresin and the seeds from a fresh vanilla bean. To do this, slit the vanilla bean open and scrape out the tiny black seeds. The vanilla fragrance will be more aromatic over time.
Can you use vanilla extract in sugar scrub?
Yes, you can use vanilla extract to scent sugar scrub instead of vanilla oleoresin.
The warming aroma of vanilla blends well with other spices. Add 1 tsp ground cinnamon to the DIY body scrub recipe to make cinnamon vanilla sugar scrub.
Mint sugar scrub
This refreshing mint scrub is perfect to slough away dead skin cells. Its sugary texture will leave your skin supremely soft and refined. Make this DIY sugar scrub part of your morning shower, the minty scent is revitalizing and will help you wake up!
Mint sugar scrub benefits
What is peppermint scrub used for? A DIY mint scrub provides a cooling sensation and can soothe dry, itchy skin. Its antimicrobial and anti-fungal properties make mint a handy ingredient for acne-prone skin. Peppermint oil is also known to control excess oils and to prevent clogged pores.
How to make DIY peppermint scrub
You can add both fresh or dried mint leaves to the scrub. Fresh mint leaves give the scrub a soft green hue and wonderfully fresh scent.
You can fragrance the body scrub with peppermint essential oil, but spearmint essential oil is the better option for sensitive skin. Peppermint extract can also be used but won’t have the same skincare properties as an essential oil.
I added steam-distilled lime essential oil and lime zest to my peppermint scrub recipe, which is incredibly refreshing. For a holiday version, check out this festive peppermint sugar scrub recipe!
Coffee sugar scrub
Revitalize and soften your skin with an invigorating coffee sugar scrub with essential oils! A blend of brown sugar and coffee grounds makes your skin feel soft and supple, and coconut oil provides nourishment to repair the skin’s moisture barrier.
Coffee scrub benefits
What is coffee sugar scrub good for? Coffee grounds are a wonderful and gentle exfoliant. The antioxidants and nutrients in this DIY coffee body scrub can be helpful to, balance the skin’s pH level, reduce the appearance of acne and cellulite, and for tan removal.
How to make homemade coffee sugar scrub
While you can make a used coffee grounds scrub, highly-quality, freshly ground coffee makes the best coffee body scrub! As is, the scrub has a mild coffee scent. The addition of vanilla oleoresin or 1 tsp vanilla extract will make the scrub even more enticing.
Coffee scrub variation
If cinnamon coffee scrub sounds appealing to you, stir 1 tsp ground cinnamon into the coffee scrub recipe.
How to use the sugar scrub recipes
These moisturizing sugar scrub recipes will keep your skin radiant and glowing! There are several ways to use the easy sugar scrub recipes. Here are a few tips for how to use sugar scrub to exfoliate your skin:
- shower – Exfoliating in the shower is by far my favourite way to exfoliate arms, legs and body. Wet your skin with warm water. Then massage small amounts of scrub on your skin. Rinse off with plenty of water.
- hands and feet – You can also use the scrub to exfoliate only certain parts of your body like your hands or bottom of your feet. Take a little scrub and rub in a circular motion on the area you want to treat.
- lip sugar scrub -These sugar scrub recipes are also excellent lip scrubs. Pick up a small amount with your fingertip and massage it all over your lips with gentle pressure and in circular motions. Leave on for two minutes, then wash away and wipe clean with a tissue.
Be gentle when exfoliating to avoid hurting yourself and use scrub only on intact skin. Don’t use the scrub on irritated or inflamed skin, or open wounds.
Tip: Always use a spoon or spatula to remove body scrub from the jar. It’s very important not to get water into the product during use.
How often should you use the sugar scrub recipe?
Use this DIY sugar scrub recipe 2 to 3 times a week. Over-exfoliating can irritate the skin.
How to store the sugar scrub recipes
Store your homemade sugar scrub recipe in a cool, dry place away from sunlight, for example a cupboard. Ensuring that the storage container is always tightly closed is the best way for how to prevent sugar scrub from hardening and drying out.
Homemade sugar scrub shelf life
How long does homemade sugar scrub last? If made with new ingredients, these sugar scrub recipes can be stored for up to a year. Sugar and coconut oil have a long shelf life of several years, but some essential oils last shorter than that. So use the best-before date of the essential oils as a guide.

I was going to use vanilla bean to add to the vanilla scrub. Never used it before and I’m told it has a paste inside the bean and not seeds. Do you blend the paste with the sugar?
Hi Kathy! Yes, you scrape out the vanilla pean and mix the seeds with the sugar. The inside of a vanilla bean consists of tiny black seeds that together seem to form a paste-like consistency. Happy making!
I’m looking forward to trying a few of these scrubs. Question on the rose variety….I read when people have used dried rose petals in making soap that it turns the soap green or brown and made the soap smell weird. What is your experience using dried rose petals in the rose sugar scrub?
Hi Kathy! Yes, it’s true that dried rose petals turn green/brown in melt and pour soap, but that is not an issue with sugar scrub in my experience. The reason is that soaps and sugar scrubs are made of different ingredients.
The sugar and oil in scrubs tend to preserve dried botanicals rather than spoil them. If you start out with beautiful prink or red rose petals, they will retain that color in a sugar scrub.
I hope this helps you out and happy crafting!
I absolutely love this, amazing tips!
I’m looking forward to getting started! ☺️
Thank you Sarah! So happy you’re enjoying these recipes. Happy making!
When adding a preservative how much do u add?
Hi April! That will depend on the preservative. Some preservatives are effective at 0.5%, while others require at least 2% to 4%. For example, Preservative ECO (Geogard ECO) is a good preservative for sugar scrub and effective at 0.6% to 1%. For this sugar scrub recipe, you would need to add 0.3 oz / 2.8 g.
Please let me know ff you have a specific preservative in mind. I’m happy to advise more!
Hi, I love these sugar scrub recipes. My question is can vegetable or olive oil be substituted for the coconut oil?
Thank you, Davilyn! You can use any liquid oil you have and like (e.g. sweet almond oil, sunflower oil). Olive oil will work as well, just make sure it smells mild. Some olive oil have a pretty distinctive smell that might be too strong for beauty products. I hope this helps and happy making!
Hi, for the rose recipe, is it the diluted rose Otto or undiluted? Also, could it be substituted with rose absolute and how much of it would I use? Is rose Otto stronger than rose absolute?
Hi Taylor! I used the diluted rose otto essential oil. You can certainly make the scrub with rose absolute. I would start with 20 to 25 drops and see how you like the scent. You can always add more.
Rose otto isn’t necessary stronger than rose absolute, but they smell a little different. To me rose otto has a honey note, whereas rose absolute features green undertones.
I hope this helps you out and happy making!
Hi, please send me the vanilla, lavender and lemon sugar scrub labels to print separately. Thanks so much!
Hi Korri! I’ll try to get those labels ready for you by tomorrow.
Thank you for these great recipes. Would the result be the same if I used sweet almond oil in place of fractionated coconut oil, or would it be better if I used half regular coconut oil and half sweet almond oil?
Hi Georgia! You can use any liquid oil you like and have available. Sweet almond oil is a lovely choice. Happy making!
Thanks for these wonderful recipes. What is the shelf life of this scrub? Do you recommend any kind of preservative? Do the micas stain your skin? Thanks in advance for your answers!
The shelf is is 1 year.
No, the micas won’t stain your skin but you can omit them if preferred.
You can optionally add a preservative. I recommend a preservative called VegeCide for sugar scrubs. VegeCide is entirely made from plants, natural and oil-soluble.
I hope this answers your questions and happy making!
This recipe is great. I made a batch of lemon sugar scrub this morning and it is so refreshing. The labels are adorable. What software did you use to create them?
Hi Lisa! I’m glad to hear you’re enjoying the lemon scrub. Cyna creates all our printables and she uses Adobe Illustrator.
Am going to start small business using your recipe and others. If its OK please let me know. Thank you
Am 11 years old girl. Wish me good luck
Hi Noora! Yes, you can use our recipes. We wish you much success and good fortune for your business!
HI. Love your scrubs and the labels are so adorable! Is there a way to only print the labels we need. I’m not making all the scrubs only a few so it seems a waste to print them all. I have tried to cut/paste but your pdf is not allowing me to do that.
Thanks for the help!
Thank you so much, Holly! We put all labels in one document to keep the file size down, and the PDFs can’t be edited. But I can email you the ones you need if you let me know what scrubs you want to make. I hope this helps!
Oh, I’d love that! Thank you so much!
Actually I’d love to have them all but I’ll format them to fit Avery 22808 labels because they fit 9 per page.
Hi Holly. Just sent you the labels. Happy making!
can you email these on avery 22612?
Hi William! No, they are not designed to fit avery 22612. Sorry about that!
It’s hard to choose which one to make first!
Can we add food coloring to the scrubs instead of the Mica powder?
Hi Anelle! Thank you so much!
Yes, you can use food colors. It’s best to mix the food color with the sugar first and then add the coconut oil mixture.
Can i store them in plastic mason jars instead of glass ones?
Thank you so much, Naz! Yes, you can use plastic mason jars if that is what you have. Happy making!
Can I use ANY brand of essential oil?
Hi Lyz! I would only use pure, high-quality essential oils from a reputable brand. Cheap bundles often aren’t pure essential oils and contain synthetic fragrances and other things you wouldn’t want in your oils.

How to do my own lightening face and body scrub .thanks
Hola me ha encantado este blog, muchas gracias por todos los consejos y recetas que han publicado. Estoy deseosa de hacer scrub de lavanda. quiero saber si son tan amables y me comentan que otros aceites o mantecas puede llevar este scrub, tengo además semillas de amapola y polvo de raíz de alkanet para dar color. El azúcar que usan es la blanca normal del supermercado?
Perdón por tantas preguntas, encantada de conocerlas, un gustazo.
cariños y éxitos
¡Muchas gracias por las palabras amables!
Usamos azúcar blanca regular.
Puede usar cualquier aceite líquido, por ejemplo, aceite de almendras dulces, aceite de coco líquido o aceite de semilla de uva.
Nunca he usado semillas de amapola o polvo de raíz de alcanet para colorear exfoliantes corporales, así que no sé si eso funcionaría.
También puede utilizar colorante alimentario morado.
¡Espero que esto ayude y sea feliz!
Thank you for these 🙂 looking forward to do some for Christmas do you know how I can calculate by drops. As in 50 drops would be 10ml? I never manage to put in the correct amounts as it tends to come out quickly from the bottle. Thanks in advance 🙂
Hi Suzu! glad you like the recipes. 1 ml / 1 g is approximately 20 drops. 50 drops = 2.5 ml / 2.5 g – 40 drops = 2 ml / 2 g.
I hope this is helpful and happy making!
Hi. What is a natural alternative for mica powder?
Hi Eva. You have several options. This set contains five different natural food colors.
You can also use the following fruit and plant powders to achieve beautiful colors:
red: strawberry powder
pink: raspberry powder or beet powder
yellow: ground turmeric
orange: annato powder or dunaliella salina powder
purple: ube powder
green: matcha powder, spinach powder or green spirulina
blue: blue spirulina powder
Some of these powders are pretty expensive but they are the most natural options.
I hope you find this helpful and please reach out if you more questions.
Hi. I have a couple of questions. What does vitamin e oil do? What are some good brands? Also is it mandatory to put it in my scrubs?
Hi Eva. I have linked to the vitamin E oil I used in post. You can find it in the ingredient list above.
The vitamin E oil does 2 things: It’s one of the best ingredients to nourish, hydrate, and rejuvenate the skin. The oil is a natural antioxidant and a wonderful treatment for dryness, proven to soften skin and reduce the appearance of hangnails and chapped cuticles.
Vitamin E oil also helps to prolongs the shelf life of the scrubs by protecting the coconut oil from oxidation.
That being said, you can omit it and the scrubs will still work fine.
What kind of preservatives can we add to the scrub?
Hi! Since these scrubs are entirely oil-based and don’t contain any water, a preservative isn’t needed. However, if you suppose they’ll come in contact with water during use, then a preservative will still be necessary.
I would recommend a preservative called VegeCide for these scrubs. VegeCide is entirely made from plants, natural and oil-soluble. The product is available on Ingredients To Die For.
Most other preservatives are only water soluble and won’t work for these scrubs.
I hope this helps and please let me know in case you have another question!
Can grapeseed oil be used instead of coconut oil?
Hi Ginger! Yes, you can use grapeseed oil instead of coconut oil. Happy making!
Thz for know.Indeed, I fond your post for starting my new business.Thzvfor sharing knowledge.
Thank you, Elena! So happy your enjoying these sugar scrubs.
All of these recipe are so excited to make. Cant wait to make these & also thinking of selling them but can i use any type of essential oils?
Hi Desire! So glad you like these scrubs.
In general, you can use most essential oils but I would always only buy high-quality EOs from a reputable seller. The cheap sets on Amazon are usually just perfume, not actual essential oils. You will also have to refer to the safety data of each oil prior to use. For example, cold-pressed citrus oils, such as lemon, lime or grapefruit, are not safe for skin care. Lastly, I also recommend doing a patch test by applying a little to the inside of your elbow and wait 24 hours to check for any reaction.
I hope this helps and let me know in case you have another question!
Hi all! How many days Can a scrub -let’s say, the lemon and coconut-Can last?
Hi Cruz! These sugar scrubs will last 1 year if made with new ingredients. Be sure to check my tips about storing sugar scrubs for the best shelf life.
Hi, just asking what fractionated coconut oil is? Can i use just coconut oil?
Hi Jackie. Fractionated coconut oil was treated to be liquid, whereas regular coconut oil is solid at room temperature. I recommend really recommend fractionated coconut oil for this project, but you can also use regular coconut oil. Just make sure to melt it first. However, the scrubs will be harder than scrubs made with fractionated coconut oil. Happy making!
Is there any recommendation to swith the vitamin e oil with?
Theres hardly any vitamin e oil sold in my country.
Hi Catherine! You can make the sugar scrubs without vitamin E oil. The scrubs will work just fine.
Hi how can i Fer the printable labels
Hi Mia, you can download them at the end of the post.
Indeed the best scrub ever will try all
Can I substitute avocado oil for coconut oil? I am making this for my niece and she just can’t tolerate the smell of coconut oil
Hi Patricia! Yes, you can use avocado oil instead of coconut.
these sugar scrubs all look so scrumptious!
Hello! Can i change the sugar with salt, oat or rice?
Which is more reccomended and How long can the mixture last without going bad?
If i dont use vit e as well.
I really want to experiment with other natural exfoliator except sugar
Hi Catherine! Salt is your best option. The shelf life will be 1 to 2 years, depending on the essential oils you use. You can also check out my salt scrub recipe. I don’t think oats or rice would work to substitute the sugar in this recipe. Let me know how it goes!
It must be hard to pick one! SO many wonderful options! Gorgeous!
Thank you so much! It was fun to come up with the different recipes.
I love these recipes! So easy and so pretty. I’d love to try the coffee and peppermint.
