DIY Coconut Sugar Scrub




Valentine's Day will be here before we know it!


Whether you are interested in making this DIY for yourself, your gal pals or someone special, this is the perfect homemade Valentine's Day gift!


You only need 4 ingredients:


+Organic Sugar

+Organic Coconut Oil

+Pink Himalayan Salt

+Essential Oils


I recommend storing the DIY Coconut Sugar Scrub in a reusable glass jar from your kitchen! I tend to save, wash and re-use glass pickle jars, pasta jars, etc in order to save money while making DIYs. If you prefer to make your DIY more uniform or cutesy, check out these jars from Amazon or Etsy.


Adorable wooden scoops would be the perfect accessory for this gift also. I found some on Amazon here.




Once you have all of your ingredients gathered, now you are ready to make your Coconut Sugar Scrub!


My recipe is measured out to create one personal-sized Coconut Sugar Scrub so if you are wanting to make a large batch, then you will have to multiply the ingredients accordingly.


1/4 Cup Organic Coconut Oil

1/2 Cup Organic Sugar

1 tablespoon Pink Himalayan Salt

5 drops of Gentle Baby Essential Oil

5 drops of Orange Essential Oil


**You can add your own combo of essential oils that you like best! Gentle Baby has a soft floral scent that is perfect for calming a sweet little bebe or the sweet little bebe's momma. Orange is an incredible mood booster that is especially needed to fight the seasonal depression that comes during those long winter months post-Christmas.


Step 1: Melt 1/4 Cup of Coconut Oil to mix with the Sugar.




Step 2: Add 1 tablespoon of Pink Himalayan Salt.


**If you want the color to be a brighter pink than add another teaspoon or two.




Step 3: Add essential oils of your choice!


I choose Gentle Baby and Orange for this batch. I'd like to make some more DIY Coconut Sugar Scrub and try different oil combinations.


Essential Oil Combo Ideas:

+5 drops Joy, 5 drops Lemon

+5 drops Peppermint, 5 drops Believe

+5 drops Lavender, 5 drops of Copaiba

+5 drops Cedarwood, 5 drops Orange

+5 drops Peppermint, 5 drops Lemon

+10 drops Frankincense

+10 drops Stress Away




I'm incredibly happy with how this DIY Coconut Sugar Scrub turned out! The only thing missing is a cute little wooden scoop, some burlap twine and a Valentine's note for a friend.
