Hand Body Scrubs

You can add the oil of your choice in place of any of the oils called for in the recipes. Some suggestion for oils:  sunflower, safflower, olive, coconut, almond, vitamin E or even vegetable oil will be OK (but not the best). All of these oils will help to retain moisture in the skin. 

Lemon Sugar Hand Scrub

Great for dry hands!

Mix 2 ½ cups of sugar with 1 cup of extra virgin olive oil.  Add in 4 tablespoons of lemon juice {or a few drops of essential oils that you enjoy the smell of}, mix really well until a gritty paste forms.

This mixture will make enough to fill a 12oz. mason jar.  

Brown Sugar Vanilla Body Scrub

Perfect exfoliate for your heels, knees and elbows and any of that really dry winter skin.

Mix 2 cups of brown sugar and 1 cup of granulated sugar together until there are no lumps. Add in 1 Cup of Sunflower Oil and 1 Tablespoon of Pure Vanilla Extract

Sweet and Spicy Sugar Scrub

Ingredients Needed:
  • 1 Cup of Granulated Sugar
  • 1 Cup of Brown Sugar
  • 2 Teaspoon of Sea Salt
  • 2 Teaspoon of Cinnamon
  • 2 Teaspoon of Nutmeg
  • 2 Teaspoon of Ground Ginger
  • 1 Cup of Sunflower, Safflower, Almond or Vegetable Oil

Mix the cinnamon, nutmeg and ground ginger together really well - slightly grinding them together.  Thoroughly combine together the granulated sugar and brown sugar - making sure to crush any lumps. Add in the sea salt and mix well.

One batch yields approximately 16 ounces of scrub.


  • 1/2 cup sea salt
  • 1/2 cup oil of your choice (jojoba, almond, olive, whatever)
  • 1 teaspoon citrus zest (lemon, lime, orange, grapefruit or a mix)
Mix ingredients together. Rub on skin while in the shower (avoiding eyes) and rinse off.  Salt is a wonderful natural exfoliate, detoxifier, skin softener and antiseptic agent


Store in a cool space out of direct sunlight in an airtight glass container.

The scrubs do not need to be refrigerated.

The addition of sea salt to sugar scrubs act as a natural preservative and recommended if you are not planning on using the scrub right away.

It is important to keep water out of the scrub. The addition of water to the scrub mixture makes it prone to growing bacteria. Use a spoon or scoop to remove the scrub from the container.

After sitting for a while you may need to mix prior to use as the sugar or salt may settle. A tiny bit is all you need and it leaves your skin extra soft and smooth.

The scrub will keep for up to 6 months stored in an airtight container at room temperature.
