All this month of JOYuary, we’ve been doing gifts from your kitchen. This one starts in your kitchen, but ends up in the shower or by the sink! I’ve always wanted to make this and it was so fun! I made Lavender, Lemon, Peppermint and Vanilla/Clove. I had no idea how easy this was. I’ll definitely be making more and trying more scents! (for the lemon, I used Lemon Essential Oil, but also added a little lemon zest to make it smell even fresher!)

Homemade Sugar Scrub


here are the basic ingredients you’ll need to make this body scrub:

  • 3/4 cup of turbinado / coarse sugar
  • 2½ TBS oil (I used EVOO)
  • ½ TBS Vitamin E Oil
  • a few drops of your favorite essential oil fragrance


  1. Place the sugar in a medium bowl– add the oil & essential oil
  2. Stir everything together and then make any adjustments desired
  3. Transfer to a small container with lid

Give away!
