This Honey Coconut Sugar Scrub turns your shower into a spa-like experience! It is a great easy way to keep your skin soft and supple!
To say that I have become obsessed with body scrubs lately is an understatement.
Salt scrubs, sugar scrubs...I love them all.
Every time I run out of the one I am using, I pull out my essential oils, and I am off to the kitchen to whip up a new one.
I have always been a shower girl rather than a bath girl.
I love how scrubs feel and smell so luxurious - almost like a trip to the spa.
(Ok, nothing is quite like a trip to the spa, but since a spa day is not in my near future, I'll take a long shower with a great scrub.)
The Quality of The Essential Oils You Use Matters!
After looking closely at the quality, purity, and ethics of so many companies, I've fallen in love with both the company and their oils. They have a large line of organic oils and are serious about safety. Every single batch is tested to ensure purity!
Read my full Plant Therapy Review for why they are my go-to company.
I also love how these scrubs keep my super-dry skin looking and feeling. I am looking less and less like an alligator all the time. This Honey Coconut Sugar Scrub is especially moisturizing, thanks to the addition of the Younger Glo Carrier Oil and Honey.
(Now if I could just come up with something non-toxic that would keep my crazy pale skin from glowing in the dark...)
I've used lavender and lemon in this Honey Coconut Sugar Scrub, but to be honest, I wasn't sure I was going to love it.
Smell is such a personal thing, and it really grew on me.
Here are some suggestions to get you going if you aren't sure that lemon and lavender are your thing!
Patchouli & Cedarwood
Lavender & Vanilla
Vetiver & Roman Chamomile
Roman Chamomile, Rose & Palmarosa

Roman Chamomile, Geranium, Sandalwood, Sweet Orange
Honey Coconut Sugar Scrub
- 1 cup raw sugar
- ½ cup coconut oil melted
- 2 tablespoons raw organic honey
- 1 tablespoon Younger Glow Carrier Oil Blend
- 10 drops steam-distilled Lemon essential oil
- 10 drops Lavender essential oil
- Add sugar, coconut oil, honey and olive oil to a medium bowl and stir until well combined.
- Add Lemon and Lavender oil to the mixture and stir until well combined.
- Transfer to a glass jar with a lid and store at room temperature for up to 6 months. If your home is below 75 degrees, a small portion of the coconut oil may accumulate at the top. Simply stir it prior to using.
I have been very obsessed with making sugar scrubs lately especially because I can easily make them with the kiddos. I am excited to try this combination of oils. It sounds incredibly delicious. Thanks for sharing!!
