Coconut Oil Sugar Scrub – July 2017IMG_0004.JPG

Hands or feet-the coconut oil sugar scrub works great. Your skin feels really soft.  Just a little goes a long way.  It makes a great gift or keep it for yourself.  I had a lot of fun making it as a party favor.


Materials Needed:

  • ½ cup coconut oil*
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 10 drops Vanilla Essential Oil**
  • Container with lid***



  1. Place ½ cup coconut oil in microwave safe dish and microwave for 45 seconds or until completely melted.
  2. Transfer melted coconut oil to small mixing bowl.
  3. Stir in 1 cup of white sugar.
  4. Mix well.
  5. Add 10 drops of essential oil in the flavor/fragrance of your choice.
  6. Mix well.
  7. Transfer to container .
  8. Add gift tag or label to jar.


*I found the coconut oil at Aldi’s.  You can also buy it at Wal-Mart and other stores.  The price varies greatly.

**I looked all over and finally found the essential oil at CVS here in North East (by the pharmacy counter).  They had lots of choices and it was very inexpensive.

***I used mason jars with screw bands but any pretty container with a tightly fitting lid would work.
