This recipe for Homemade Sugar Scrub is so easy to make, and it makes your skin feel absolutely amazing. My homemade sugar scrub is a simple combination of coconut oil, sugar and lemon zest.
Like my DIY Face Scrub, these are just everyday ingredients that you likely have on hand already! The combination of lemon zest and coconut oil smells heavenly. The coconut oil leaves your skin so soft and smooth. It’s a homemade exfoliating and hydrating treatment in one.
This homemade sugar scrub is my new favorite gift idea. Bonus: It looks adorable in these little mason jars.
1/2 cup of coconut oil
1/2 cup of sugar
Zest of two lemons
Stir together coconut oil, sugar and lemon zest.
Use on damp skin.
Pair this with Handmade Lemon Soap from a Pumpkin and a Princess for a gorgeous DIY gift set!
Coconut oil liquifies when it gets warm and is solid when cool. You can use it in the scrub either way.
Take care when using in the shower as it can make the shower a little slippery.
This recipe is intended for use as a body scrub.
I am absolutely loving coconut oil right now, so expect to see more coconut oil projects and recipes. In addition to cooking, I’ve been using it as a moisturizer and to smooth and shine my hair!
