Homemade Lemon Sugar Body Scrub Recipe

Whether you make your own sugar bath scrub to treat yourself with a bit of luxury or you make it to give as gifts for your friends, this easy-to-follow homemade body scrub recipe will be a welcome gift of exfoliation and aromatherapy that everyone will enjoy!

  • ½ cup organic coconut oil
  • 1 ½ – 2 ½ cups organic sugar
  • 2-3 Tbsp. lemon zest
  • 8-10 drops lemon essential oil

Just Three Easy Steps

Step One: In a glass bowl, melt coconut oil in the microwave for 30 seconds or until it becomes liquid.

Step Two: Mix lemon essential oil and lemon zest with the melted coconut oil.

Step Three: Add in sugar and mix well until combined. When making sugar scrub, we recommend starting with 1 ½ cups of sugar and adding ½ cup until you reach the consistency you enjoy the best. If you prefer a coarser scrub with not as much oil, use the full 2 ½ cups of sugar.

Fill glass containers, like mason jars or decorative glass bottles, with the scrub and tie a decorative ribbon around the rim. Create your own personal label and give as gifts for any occasion. Better yet, give them away for no special reason at all, except to make someone’s day a little brighter!
