How to Make Fantastic Homemade Scrubs with Coconut Oil and Sugar

homemade sbrub recipes

We all know that exfoliating our skin is an important part of both facials and body treatments. When we exfoliate, we remove the old dead skin cells that cling to the outer layer of the skin, called epidermis.  Exfoliation is an important technique that leaves your skin healthy, smooth, fresh and glowing. Exfoliation also makes it easier for expensive facial products like serums to penetrate to the skin. It is recommended to do light exfoliation once or twice a week.
Of course you can buy fancy scrubs in stores, but often they are expensive and contain unnecessary ingredients, preservatives, artificial colors and scents, and some of them can irritate our delicate skin. If you choose to make your own sugar scrubs at home, it will cost you much cheaper and you will be able to control what ingredients go into them.

Therefore today I would like to share with you three recipes of coconut oil and sugar scrubs that I’ve found in CoconutOil.com website which contains all sorts of information about the health benefits of coconut oil. You can also read my article about the health benefits of coconut oil. These scrubs are fast and easy to make and can be used on the hands, feet, body and face. An added bonus is that they also make great gifts for family and friends:

Citrus Sugar Scrub

1 cup organic cane sugar
¼ cup coconut oil, melted
¼ cup jojoba oil
10 drops each of lemon, lime, and tangerine (or orange) essential oils

Mix all ingredients together and store in an airtight container.

Coffee Cinnamon Sugar Scrub

½ cup organic cane sugar
½ cup organic coffee grounds
¼ cup coconut oil, melted
¼ cup jojoba oil
15 drops cinnamon and/or vanilla essential oil

Mix all ingredients together and store in an airtight container.

Honey Vanilla and Chamomile Sugar Scrub

1 cup organic cane sugar
¼ cup coconut oil, melted
¼ cup jojoba oil
¼ cup raw honey, liquefied
10-15 drops each of vanilla and chamomile essential oils

Mix all ingredients together and store in an airtight container.

As you can see, these recipes contain also essential oils which are excellent for your skin, and you can get more information in my previous article how to use essential oils for healthy skin. If you are interested to learn more about essential oils you can find useful information in my e-book Magical Aromatherapy.
