There is nothing like homemade! Especially when it’s easy and quick and something you can use at home or turn into a gift for others.
These two scrubs have ingredients most of us have right in our cabinets! Here are two recipes for homemade scrubs you can you use on our face or other areas of your skin that you need to exfoliate and are perfect for summer or winter.
Homemade Sugar Scrub
- 2 cups brown sugar (light or dark)
- 1/4 cup coconut oil or olive oil
- 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
Measure out 2 cups of brown sugar.
Next, melt 1/4 cup coconut oil.
Mix in coconut oil and vanilla.
Press firmly into an 8 oz. Mason jar.
The next scrub is very similar except it is made with lemons! Try this one out as well!
Easy Lemon Scrub
- 2 cups white sugar
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 1 lemon
First, pour 2 cups of sugar into a large bowl.
Then zest one lemon. (Reserve the lemon itself.)
Then melt 1/4 cup coconut oil and pour over sugar and mix.
Next take the lemon you zest and cut in half and take out seeds.
Squeeze all the lemon juice out of it. (This smells so good!)
Pour the lemon juice and all the zest into the bowl of sugar, then mix.
Pack the sugar mix in the jar. Pictured is an 8 oz. jar, and I actually filled two 8 oz. jars with this one recipe.
Both of these recipes are SO easy, you can do them with your kids or have your kids make some up for gifts for their teachers or family members. We use both of these recipes at our home and we love the way these scrubs make our skin feel. Enjoy!!
