How to MakeYour Own Sugar Body Scrub

In Beauty & Fashion by Jen18 Comments

As we are getting ready to head into summer, at least here in my neck of the woods, my skin is feeling dry and rough.  On a recent trip to the mall to pick up some sugar scrub to counteract this problem, I had the epiphany that I could make this myself. Now we all know that not all of my DIY projects turn out exactly as planned, but this one is easy, fabulous and I highly recommend it to everyone.


How to make your own sugar body scrub

In a bowl, mix together the following ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 cups of white sugar
  • 2/3 cup olive oil,
  • 2 Tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 Tablespoon of lemon essential oil. I use Young Living (YL). We will talk later about why I use YL essential oils all the time with my family.

Make sure to use a jar that seals so that you can pop it closed. I think I will leave mine in the fridge and bring out as needed.

My girls and I all used it tonight and it smells so good we all wanted to eat it. I would however, not advise doing that. Our skin feels soft, we smell good and had fun making something together. We even think we are going to make some for all of the kids teachers as an end of the school year gift. Which is in exactly 13 days!!! Ack, now comes the fun of entertaining 4 kids in 100+ heat. More to come on that special Mom duty.

Stay Happy! Stay Informed!

  1. What a great idea, but my first thought is I'd gain 5 pounds putting all that sugar on me.

    Have a fabulous day. ☺

  2. Oh how fun! I want to do a conference so bad! Great scrub! I posted one yesterday that's quite different!

  3. SO. VERY. JEALOUS. Learn lots for the rest of us newbies at the conference!
    Your timing for the sugar scrub is fabulous, with winter skin not being something I want to show off in my shorts and short sleeves! Great post!

  4. I bet it does smell good enough to eat! My sister made some as xmas gifts a couple years back and it made me hungry every time I scrubbed. And yay for boot camp!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. That's awesome that you're going to the conference. Here's an idea, record it all and then post it on your blog :) Okay fine you probably can't do that so just keep posting all your great tips.

  6. Ohh, awesome! DO document your fun times at that blogging boot camp!

  7. oooh, this sounds super easy to make! might have to try it. :-)

  8. How lucky you are to be going to a blog conference and spending it with The Sits girls…I'm squealing for you too. Thanks so much for linking up to Merry Monday linky party. I entered the contest too…crossing my fingers.

  9. Erlene- it was amazing. So glad I could go. Just wish I could get all of my bloggy friends in one room for a big old sharefest like that!

  10. This looks fun to make, sugar scrub… it'd be hard not to eat it, lol! Most of the ingredients I have minus the oil you have listed, something to try for sure :)

  11. I kid you not, it smells like lemon meringue pie and I want to eat it! I hope you do try it out. I am still loving what it does for my hands.
