Crafty Idea: Coconut Oil Body Scrub

This post may contain affiliate links. Disclosure Policy

A few years ago,  for Christmas, I made these cute little jars of sugar scrub.  I used Olive Oil in the scrub because that is what I had…and then today, LIGHT BULB!  I have been getting so many comments about how many people love the Coconut Oil for their skin, that I decided, let me try that instead.  I LOVED IT!

So here was the recipe from before:

About 1.5 cups of white sugar
About 1/2 cup of olive oil (best oil to moisturize your skin)
2-3 drops of essential oil (I chose Tea Tree, cuz it helps a miriad of skin issues)
Scrap fabric


I modified it to be:

1.5 cups of white sugar
1/2 cup of Virgin Coconut Oil
and that was it!  I loved the smell so much, I didn’t have the heart to add Tea Tree Oil.  :-)

I scrubbed and scrubbed, my skin feels so soft.  I am such a happy girl right now.

  1. Oh, I’m going to have to make some of that. I’m going to see if my daughter can use it. She has developed so many skin sensitivities that she doesn’t use very many products.

  2. Betty, be sure to go see if you can win it. I am giving away a 32 oz jar of Virgin Coconut Oil. :-)

  3. That sounds really great but for someone on a super tight budget to give gifts with something so expensive in it, not realistic for me.

    I do have something for you gals…Amazon has Nutiva Extra Virgin Coconut Oil on sale right now. You can get 2 – 15oz tubs for $12.97 shipped! That’s only $6.49 each. Sounds like a great deal to me. You need to choose Subscribe and Save on the right side (this will give you a discount and FREE shipping.) You can cancel after you get yours or keep it coming on a regular schedule automatically. Also, use the code NUTIVSEP at checkout. Final cost will only be $12.97 shipped. :-)

  4. Great idea, I am going to pin this as au!n idea for Christmas gifts. Thank you!
