I love a good sugar scrub but don’t love all the extras that are in some commercially prepared ones. Plus they can be expensive. This easy DIY sugar scrub requires just a few ingredients and can be infused with your favorite essential oils.
Ingredients needed for DIY sugar scrub
There are a few good essential oil options if you have a Young Living Starter Kit. Stress Away and Lavender are my favorites to use. The starter kit is a great way to get started with essential oils and I even have some bonus items when you purchase through me. Learn more about Young Living Essential Oils here. This is a great month to try them out because 3 starter kits are 10% off!

Put sugar in a bowl.
Add the olive oil and vitamin e oil in another bowl. Mix together.
Pour the combined oils in with the sugar. Stir to mix.
Add the red gel food coloring drops to the sugar combo. Stir to mix the color.
Add the essential oils to the scrub. Blend well to ensure that the essential oils are well distributed.
Scoop into a lidded mason jar.
These directions make enough for one larger mason jar of sugar scrub. You can easily multiply the ingredients by the number of sugar scrubs you wish to make. These are fun homemade gifts. The DIY sugar scrub would also be cute to make at a spa birthday party or a girls night.
