Vanilla Sugar Scrub with Coconut Oil

I think coconut oil is my new favorite find.  There are so many different things you can use coconut oil for.  It’s so good for you and your skin too.  I made this Oh so yummy smelling Vanilla Sugar Scrub with Coconut oil as I’m getting ready for summer time.  I must have super soft skin for summer if I’m going to sit by the pool and drink ice tea all day.  You can have super soft and summer ready skin also just by making some sugar scrub.  Plus you’ll have enough left over to give some away as a Mother’s Day gift

Here is what you need: (most everything you may have in your pantry already)

  • Coconut oil (can find refined oil at the grocery store)
  • Sugar
  • Vanilla

Mix two big heaping spoonfuls of coconut oil into a bowl.  Add 3 cups of sugar and a splash of vanilla to the bowl and mix together.  This should make enough scrub to fill 3 jelly jars full.  It’s that easy.  You can also make these other variations of my sugar scrubs

 Brown sugar scrub

Sumer sugar scrub

Here is my newest sugar scrub recipe

(Sugar, zest from one small lemon, lemon juice from that same lemon, coconut oil)

I love how this scrub has little flecks of yellow lemon peel in it.  It’s very light and fresh smelling.

 I’m telling you if you have never used sugar scrub before you’re in for a treat.

If you have any great tips or tricks you use to get your skin summer ready?

I would love to hear about it.

    Hurray!! This is the same sugar scrub I received from one of my students this past spring for Teacher Appreciation week. It is my all time favorite beauty item!!! I am so glad I found you!


  2. I love homemade sugar scrubs! Its one of my favorite gifts to give as well. A tip I always like share is if you use it before you shave, instead of after, it will remove the built up dead skin and give a closer shave that will last longer as opposed to removing the dead skin after shaving and exposing the hair that was below the dead skin. 🙂 because I don’t know anyone who really enjoys shaving their legs!

    what about epson salts in place of the sugar.. any difference?


    • I’ve never tried it, so I’m not sure how it would work… You might be able to google it and find out. Sorry I couldn’t help you.

        I looked at some of the bath scrubs at Marshalls and a few other stores. They use bath salts which are the same compound as what we use to soak aching bodies in–Epson salt. I will try one batch with sugar and the other with Epson and let you know. I think sugar might be cheaper to use


      • Cool, let me know how it turns out.


  7. Hi there! This post couldn’t be written much better! Reading through this post reminds me of my previous roommate!
    He constantly kept talking about this. I most certainly will forward this
    information to him. Fairly certain he’ll have a good read.

    Many thanks for sharing!


  8. I all the time emailed this web site post page to all my contacts, since if like to
    read it after that my friends will too.
