Everyone could use a little pampering every now and then, and I love having my homemade sugar scrub ready at my sink for a quick spa fix anytime I need it. It’s quite easy to mix up at home, and the scent of this one reminds me of Hawaii!

All you need are two simple ingredients: sugar and coconut oil! This recipe will make enough scrub for one or two uses, so for just a few dollars, you can make a lot of DIY scrub! Why buy it when you can make it for wayyy less? It would be neat to customize it by add fragrances or essential oils. I used refined coconut oil for this batch, which only has the slightest scent of coconut. If you use unrefined coconut oil, it will have a stronger coconut scent. Mix and match fragrances to make it how you like it! Either kind of coconut oil will moisturize your skin beautifully. Keep it in the kitchen because, while the sugar is needed for baking, coconut oil is great for cooking!

  1. Thank you for this super simple recipe! It is a nice add-in to a “Pamper Yourself” basket I am making for my kids’ teachers! Plus, I felt it easiest to mix the scrub using my hands, so I felt like I was getting a much-needed spa day myself.
