Lately, it seems like everyone’s buzzing about DIY scrubs on social media. Honestly, we totally get the hype — especially when finding a clean and natural scrub can be challenging. Making your own scrub at home is an absolute breeze. People are jumping on board, and guess what? It’s our turn to dive in and spill the beans. Let’s dive in, shall we?
For the ingredients, you’ll need:
- 1/2 cup of plain granulated white sugar
- 1/4 cup of pure unrefined coconut oil (go for organic and unrefined for optimal benefits)
- 2 tablespoons of your regular shower gel (optional)
- Glass jar for storage
- You can start by mixing all the ingredients in a glass jar, in which you’ll be storing the scrub, or in a mixing bowl — choose whatever’s more convenient for you.
- Combine 1/2 cup of sugar and 2 tablespoons of your shower gel (you can skip the shower gel if you plan to use the scrub not only on your body but also on your lips, for instance).
- Mix the sugar and shower gel together.
- Then, add 1/4 cup of pure unrefined coconut oil to the sugar.
- Stir until the sugar and coconut oil blend into a slightly grainy texture.
- Store the scrub in an airtight container at room temperature.

Coconut scrub recipe used from the source.
I absolutely loved how quick and easy it was to create this scrub. Coconut oil doesn’t just smell amazing; it also lingers on your skin throughout the day, providing nourishment. The addition of sugar creates a pleasant exfoliating sensation, seamlessly combining both ingredients. The best part is that you can customize the scrub to your preferences. If you’re applying it to your lips, you can skip the shower gel and add peppermint oil for a plumping effect. And if you’re seeking an extra boost, consider adding lemongrass oil for a refreshing twist!
Overall, I would give this a solid 9/10 and wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone seeking smooth and nourished skin!
