DIY: Lavender + Orange Sugar Scrub

DIY: Lavender + Orange Sugar Scrub

Lately I'm on my way to greening up my home after watching what has been a stream of Netflix documentaries and doing hours of research. It's become a passion of mine. So when I found out what was in the exfoliating scrub in my shower, I decided it was time to make my own!

So here it is. Super simple and so fun to do. (Plus it smells delightful!)

All you'll need is:

  • 1 cup sugar (I like Raw Organic when I can find it)
  • ½ cup coconut oil or olive oil
  • ½ tsp Vitamin E oil (optional)
  • ½ tsp real vanilla extract
  • 15 drops lavender essential oil (or any essential oils you like)
  • 10 drops wild orange essential oil
  • 1 pint sized air-tight glass jar (Michaels has them for $1.50!)

*Use within a month or two to prevent scrub from going rancid. 

Just combine all ingredients together and place in the jar! If you're doing this as a gift, put a cute ribbon around it.


Keep your eyes out for the Pumpkin Spice Sugar Scrub I'll be doing for fall soon!
