Coconut Sugar Scrub

Happy New Year All! I hope your holiday was fun and relaxing. Ours was great! We were able to spend some time with family and some relaxing time at home. Now I have to get out of vacation mode...hm...

Anyway, I still have a few handmade gifts to show you that I made from Christmas. I recently received some coconut oil from Tropical Traditions, so I've been looking for some ways to use the oil outside of the kitchen. This one is one that I may have made for for myself as well...

Coconut Sugar Scrub

This was really easy, and it turned out great. I found this on Pinterest, here is the site I used

Here's what you need:

Coconut Oil
Mason Jars
Essentials Oils (Optional)

First, melt the coconut oil down. Then mix in the sugar until it makes a paste. You can add essential oils if you want, I added peppermint. And that's it, seriously. Just pour the paste into your jars and let it harden. Use the scrub on dry areas. This stuff is awesome, it's really good for your skin. It leaves it feeling really moisturized.

Thanks so much for stopping by!


  1. I've heard that coconut oil is a wonder product! This sounds great! I love moisturizing scrubs! How about a body butter??

  2. I just bought a jar of coconut oil- I am going to try this! Does it smell coconutty? Can you get essential oil in coconut smell? Hmmm...I will have to investigate. Thanks for the idea! Popping by from Nap Time Crafters. I blog over at http://thehandleyhome.blogspot.com. Say hi sometime!

  3. Awesome stuff there. Great post.

  4. How easy! I just bought some coconut oil so I have to try this out!
