Homemade Body Scrub With Just 4 Simple Ingredients

Homemade Body Scrub With Just 4 Simple Ingredients

Homemade Body Scrub

We are crazy for a lovely homemade body scrub. Especially when It uses only four simple ingredients and takes 5 minutes to whip up. This is a wonderful recipe to make up for your own use, or to make as a gift to someone. Imagine receiving a beautiful jar of homemade body scrub as a gift, it would be heavenly. And it would look super cute with a nice label and ribbon wrapped around the jar.


For this recipe you will need 4 simple ingredients, which you will most likely already have sitting in your pantry.

  • 1/4 cup Coconut oil
  • 3/4 cup Granulated white sugar
  • 2-4 drops Food coloring
  • 10-15 drops Essential oil

You can chose any essential oil, or combination of oils, which pleases you. We love lemon the best, it gives your body scrub a fresh and zingy lift. And you can chose a food coloring which will match the scent which you have chosen. For instance, I would pick a yellow food coloring for the lemon essential oil, red for a raspberry scent, or brown for a chocolate/cocoa scent.

You will also need:

  • A jar (for storing the body scrub)
  • A saucepan
  • Labels or ribbon (optional)
