DIY Organic Sugar Scrubs to Make at Home + 4 Easy Recipes

I love a good sugar scrub. I tend to prefer them to salt scrubs (you know, that can be a little stingy after some leg shavin'). But my favorite thing about them is that they are incredibly easy to make at home with whatever ingredients you have around the house! Bonus - if you make them yourself you can be sure they're rid of any icky chemicals you shouldn't necessarily be massaging into your skin.

I've concocted several different sugar scrub recipes over the past couple of years, but the base is always pretty consistent. It's just a matter of figuring out what works best for your skin. So take a look at the basics, plus some easy recipes for some of my favorite combos. 

The Base

The Recipes


1. Grapefruit + Mint Sugar Scrub

2. Oatmeal Brown Sugar Scrub

3. Vanilla + Lavender Sugar Scrub

4. Lemon + Eucalyptus Mint Sugar Scrub

I like to store my sugar scrubs in a glass mason jar, but any airtight container will do. Have you made any sugar scrub combos that you love? I'd love to hear them!
