Coconut Oil Sugar Body Scrub


For 1 Batch(es)


  • 4 ounces virgin coconut oil, chilled (oil must be solid)
  • a few drops essential oil, such as lavender, lemongrass or sweet orange (optional)
  • 4 ounces granulated sugar or turbinado sugar

Coconut Oil Sugar Body Scrub Directions

  1. Place the chilled coconut oil in a 4-cup container.
  2. Using a hand mixer or stand mixer, whip the oil for 5 to 7 minutes until light and very creamy in appearance.
  3. Add the essential oil, if using, then add the sugar and stir to combine.
  4. Spoon the mixture into a container with a tight-fitting lid.
  5. Apply to damp skin and massage lightly until sugar is dissolved; rinse with warm to hot water and pat dry.
  6. An ambient temperature of 76° or above will result in the coconut oil deflating and liquefying, which only affects the texture.
  7. (Note: Avoid getting water in the container. Use a spoon or cosmetic spatula to scoop out.)
