Brightening DIY Body Scrub Recipe

  • Author: Megan Gilger
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 4 ounces 1x


Use pantry items in your kitchen to make this DIY body scrub recipe to brighten and refresh your skin.



1/2 cup pure organic cane sugar
1/2 cup unrefined virgin coconut oil
1 lemon zested and juiced

*you can substitute the lemon for any essential oil (use 3-4 drops)

Items needed:
1 mixing bowl
1 spatula for mixing
23 4 oz glass containers to store the scrub in
1 zester for lemon


  1. To make the scrub it is very easy. All you will need to do is place all the ingredients in the mixing bowl and combine them. That is it. Very simple and easy to do.
  2. Once I combine everything I then fill the glass containers with the scrub to be stored in a cool place.
  3. The oil will separate some in warm environments, but all you have to do is give it a good shake or stir before you use it. If you do not like the feeling of being oily after a shower, you can simply use your typical bar soap to wash off after you give yourself a good scrub from head to toe.


Store the DIY Body Scrub in a room temperature room or space. It will soften if it comes in contact with heat.
