Supplies For Your Homemade Bath Scrub Recipe

ingredients for homemade sugar scrub

To make your own sugar scrub, you only need a handful of simple ingredients that can be found in the grocery store, or maybe already in your kitchen.

Generally as a base for any diy sugar scrub recipe, you need a combination of sugar and carrier oils (eg coconut oil, jojoba oil, olive oil)

Use these base ingredients along with something for fragrance (such as your favorite essential oils) and something to add color, such as mica powder (food coloring is not a good choice due to potential color transfer, so stick with the different colors of mica powder)

This is your basic recipe, then any additional natural ingredients for that particular scrub recipe.

For best results, it depends what your aim is with the scrub. Use a coarse sugar to give more exfoliation, or use brown sugar for a gentler result which will be more suitable for use on the face (it’s less abrasive)

For this Honey Almond Sugar Scrub recipe you will need… (affiliate links to amazon included below for your convenience, but you can use any brand you prefer)

This quantity makes 8 oz of scrub, so adjust as necessary if you would like to make a bigger batch.


  1. Add all of the items to a small bowl and stir until fully combined.
  2. Store in an airtight container.

Apply to wet skin in a circular motion, to gently exfoliate and remove dead skin cells. This sugar scrub can be applied to the entire body, in the bath or shower. Take care and use caution with areas where you may have sensitive skin, such as the face, and do not scrub too roughly.

Take your time to exfoliate with your own homemade body scrub around once a week and rinse with warm water, you will be left with beautiful soft skin.
