Easy Homemade Sugar Scrub
Anyone remember those “Calgon, Take Me Away!” commercials? That’s how I have felt these last few weeks. Jorge and I have been so busy since the new year. There hasn’t been a break or a long weekend where we have really gotten away (or just stayed in) and had a nice staycation. Between his work travel, my travel and our jobs – it’s been crazy lately.
This weekend Jorge and I have an out of town wedding to go to along the Georgia coast. I just love receptions — open bars and dancing with my husband are the perfect recipe for a good time. I am also looking forward to checking out of reality for a few days…and of course, a Piña Colada.
My signature “I’m officially on Vacation” drink is a lovely Piña Colada. It can’t be one of those frozen machine ones, but a real delicious Piña Colada with an extra shot of rum. That fruity smell of coconut can instantly make me feel like I am on vacation.
So in preparation for our beach weekend get away, I have made one of my favorite sugar scrubs but with a coconut twist. Every time I hop in the shower the smell of coconut makes me swoon! But my favorite part of this sugar scrub is the super soft skin it leaves behind. With a little Vitamin E thrown in, this is the perfect get ready for summer sugar scrub!
DIY Coconut Sugar Scrub
This exfoliating DIY Coconut Sugar Scrub will make your skin soft as silk! It's super easy to make with just 4 ingredients, and it smells amazing!
- 1 cup coconut oil
- 2 cups turbinado sugar (sugar in the raw – the coarse flakes)
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 3 tablespoons vitamin e (optional)
- Combine the two sugars in a bowl and mix to incorporate. Add coconut oil and vitamin e and stir to combine.
- Store in an airtight jar and stir before using (when needed – the oils will settle when not being used).
Makes 1 jar of scrub. The turbinado sugar makes a coarse scrub. If you would like a more gentle scrub, you can substitute all granulated sugar for the turbinado sugar.

If I am putting this into 4oz jars for a bridal shower approx how much would it make for 1 batch?
Where do you purchase vitamin e? And in what form, capsules or ??
Hi..Could you tell me if the Coconut Oil is liquid or solid when I measure it??
How much does the recipe make? I believe we have 24 2oz jars…making it for a baby shower favor….perfect!
It makes about 2 1/2 cups! So you will probably need about 2 – 3 batches!

I have had it last up to 6 months in the past!
I purchased coconut oil but it is solid. Is that normal?
Yes! It is actually softer than it looks and once you start stirring it will mix together perfectly!
