Easy Home Made Sugar Scrubs

I'm kind of obsessed with home made sugar scrubs right now. Is that weird? Oh well, I blame the evil influence of Pinterest (and also the fact that every once in awhile I like to play mad scientist in the kitchen haha.) The thing is, sugar scrubs are so nice for exfoliating and moisturizing dry winter skin and so easy to make that I can almost guarantee you already have everything you need in your kitchen right now to whip up your own little jar of awesome. 

So all you really need for this quickie project is some sugar (white or brown) and some oil (olive, coconut, almond or grapeseed.) Simple, right? For fragrance you can add any combination of extracts or essential oils that float your boat, and maybe a few drops of vitamin E oil for extra moisturizing. Those things are optional, though! Go crazy! 

Below are my two most recent recipes, and I'm kind of in love with both of them.

Almond Rose Sugar Scrub

1 cup white sugar
3/8 cup grapeseed oil
1 1/2 tsp rose water
1/2 tsp almond extract
splash of vitamin E oil

Mix the sugar and oil well then add rose water and almond extract. Store in glass jar. 

Lemon Vanilla Sugar Scrub

1 cup white sugar
3/8 cup grapeseed oil
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
16 drops lemon essential oil
splash of vitamin E oil

Mix sugar and oil well, then add vanilla extract and lemon oil. Store in glass jar.

Have you ever made your own sugar scrub? What are your favorite ingredients? I'm thinking maybe lavender and honey for next time :-)

  1. I love homemade scrubs! I usually keep it pretty basic and just do brown sugar & coconut oil. Might have to try these and switch it up a little!

    1. Can't go wrong with a basic scrub especially with coconut oil, it's so soothing! Thanks for stopping by :-)
