Easy DIY Sugar Scrub

Hi out there! Last week I shared with you my experience with Argan oil, and I am continuing to share my love for this awesome beauty staple today with a simple DIY! When I go get a manicure or pedicure, one of my favorite parts is getting massaged and scrubbed up with their fancy spa products. I just got the first pedicure that I've had in over a year (read more about that here), and I felt inspired to try to make my own spa scrub!

I think it turned out pretty great if I do say so myself! I found some lavender essential oil at TJ Maxx, used my argan oil, and also got fractionated coconut oil from Radha Beauty on Amazon. I decided to store it in that cute mason jar I had sitting unused in my apartment. I didn't realize how easy it would be to create such an indulgent and pampering product! Because it contains simple and natural ingredients, this scrub has so many uses- on your hands before an at-home mani, on your legs after shaving, on your feet in your bath, and anywhere else you could use some extra exfoliation. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Easy DIY Sugar Scrub

1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup fractionated coconut oil (or carrier oil of your choice)
10 drops lavender essential oil
5 drops argan oil

Start by measuring out the coconut oil and then add in the drops of essential oil. Add the oils into your sugar and stir gently until combined. If your desired texture isn't reached, add additional ingredients (add more oil for a liquidy texture, add more sugar for more gritty texture). Store in airtight container with lid and enjoy within a month!

I think it's a great time to start incorporating some extra exfoliation into your routine to get you skin smooth and ready to be exposed in warmer weather outfits- thank goodness!

Have you experimented with DIY beauty products before? What do you do to get your skin shorts and tank top ready?


  1. LOVE LOVE sugar scrubs, one night on my dorm we had a pinterest craft night and made DIY sugar scrubs. They really are amazing!

    1. That sounds so fun! This was my first try and I will definitely be doing it again! I can't wait to play with different textures in the future! Thanks for stopping by :)

  2. Great recipe! I usually use sugar and water as an exfoliant but I love the idea of adding some lavender and oil

  6. I loooove making my own scrubs. Must try lavender!

  7. That is brilliant that you do your own scrub. They can be expensive to buy! And it's something that I should learn cause I can't survive without scrubs :(
