Here at our house we sometimes have bumpy skin, dry skin, irritated skin…it runs the gamut. I wanted a simple homemade sugar scrub that we could use in the shower to help heal our skin.
This stuff smells so good, you’ll want to eat it….and you can if you really want to, but I don’t recommend it. 🙂
When I say simple, I mean – no glass jar with fancy label and no crazy ingredients. We use a small tupperware container with a lid.
And, crazy enough, we found out by accident, that this scrub instantly takes away the itch from bug bites – for a long period of time. It’s like magic.

- 1/4 cup (plus a little more) unrefined organic coconut oil
- 3/4 cup sugar (I like to use coarse organic cane sugar)
- 2 tsp Vitamin E oil (optional but great for your skin)
- 20 drops of lemon essential oil (also optional but smells SO good)
Mix together. Put in container. Enjoy.
If you want to give this as a gift – by all means, place in fancy jar with fancy label and bow.
Note: The consistency of the coconut oil will change as the temperature changes so it may feel different some days…It’s okay, it still works the same.
