DIY: Body Scrub {a base for salt scrub or sugar scrub}

Today’s DIY comes from Deliciously Organized and is a perfect gift for any girly baby shower, wedding shower or girls night out. You can make the jars in a variety of ways along with the sent of your scrub. Here are two recipes for your scrub that you can either make together at your next party or simply hand them out as favors.

Both of these bases {below} can be used to make any scent of scrub you’d like by switching out the essential oil. For example, you could use sweet orange, lavender, rose, peppermint, almond oil, etc. or whatever your favorite scent is with this base. The measurements for the base are:

SALT SCRUB:

1/2 cup of organic sea salt
1/3 cup of organic raw sugar or 1/3 cup of organic cane sugar {tip: cane sugar is softer than the raw}
1 cup of room temperature coconut oil {best when it has a liquid consistency}
30 drops of essential oil

OR

SUGAR SCRUB:

1/2 cup of organic raw sugar or 1/2 cup of organic cane sugar {tip: cane sugar is softer than the raw}
1/3 cup of organic sea salt
1 cup of coconut oil {best when it has a liquid consistency}
30 drops of essential oil

Add ingredients in order listed above, topping it off with coconut oil {add more coconut oil if you like it less dry}. Then, add essential oil and stir with a butter knife. Tip-the coconut oil may go back to a more solid form, add 1/4 cup of almond oil to create a liquid consistency again or more coconut oil.

  2. Hi I love this recipe! I am going to be doing this for gifts for CHristmas, however I haven’t found a way to keep the coconut oil in liquid form! Any suggestions? I just don’t want to give a solid ball of scrub in a jar. Thanks!!

  3. Turn the hot water on and let it sit there for a couple minutes. The coconut oil will temporarily melt. Sorry, only temporarily, in my experience , coconut oil stays in liquid form only during the summer.

  4. Grapeseed Oil is a great alternative to the coconut – it has almost no scent so you can let your essential oil shine. It is inexpensive and stays in liquid form. I do not recommend olive oil as it has an over-powering scent.
