Lavender, Brown Sugar, & Coconut Oil Body Scrub

Hi everyone! I’ve decided to make a new body scrub, and I did it a bit differently then the last body scrub I posted about. As with all body scrubs, this one is super easy and can be done in only three steps!

The differences with this body scrub is the addition of almond oil and a mixture of calming essential oils. In this post I will show you how to make this body scrub, all the ingredients you will need, and where you can find the ingredients.

I just recently started using almond oil for my skin and have found that it works amazing at healing my dry skin. The essential oils I used also make this scrub smell so good and make it a great addition to any relaxing shower or bath. I hope you guys like it!

What you will need:

  • 2 Cups of White / Brown Sugar
  • 3/4 Cup of Coconut Oil
  • 2 Tbsp of Almond Oil
  • 1 Tbsp of Vitamin E Oil
  • 10-15 Drops Each of Lavender, Rosemary, & Frankincense Essential Oils

This recipe makes about 16 oz of body scrub. At the end of this post, I have included links where you can find each of the ingredients listed above.

I like my scrubs really oily because I have such bad dry skin, but if you like them less oily, you can change the recipe to 1/4 cup – 1/2 cup of coconut oil instead*.

Step 1: Melt the coconut oil so that it becomes liquified.

Step 2: Next, add the almond oil and essential oils to the coconut oil and stir until combined.

Step 3: Add the oil mixture to two cups of brown or white sugar. I chose brown sugar for this recipe. Mix the oil and sugar until combined.

So easy, the sugar scrub is finished! Now all that’s left is to put it in a container of your choice. I hope you guys like this scrub! Below I will show you where you can get all the ingredients for this scrub.


I’ve always used C&H brown sugar. If your in need of some brown sugar, this brand can be found on Amazon in packs of two here ($12.84).

The Spectrum coconut oil has been in some of my previous posts. I’ve been using it for awhile now and love using it for all sorts of things, it can be purchased here ($7.58).

The almond oil I use is from the Aura Cacia brand, and also has Vitamin E in it as well. I still like to add some more to my scrubs to make them really hydrating. It can be purchased here ($3.38).

Sadly, I don’t think you can find the TopCare vitamin E oil online, but there is another brand on Amazon that is fairly inexpensive. I honestly want to give it a try once I run out of the TopCare oil. It can be found here ($11.99).

The essential oils I used for this mask come in a set on Amazon. I received them as a gift for Christmas and love all the different kinds it comes with! It includes tea tree, lavender, eucalyptus, frankincense, lemongrass, lemon, rosemary, orange, and peppermint essential oils. The set can be purchased here ($24.99).

    1. Do you mean if it wears off? After rinsing it off in the bath or shower it should make your skin feel soft for at least a few hours. I live in a very dry climate and I find when I use the scrub, I don’t have to use any lotion for the rest of that day.

      1. Oh! I’m sorry I misunderstood. It should store well, for at least a few months I’m sure. I would imagine the coconut oil or almond oil would be the first to go bad but I know you can store them for at least a few months, if not a year. I’ve never had a sugar scrub go bad and I keep them for at least a month or two. I found this website that may be of some help, it has a list of when oils go bad. It lists both almond oil and coconut oil as being good for at least up to a year. http://www.soapqueen.com/bath-and-body-tutorials/tips-and-tricks/free-beginners-guide-to-soapmaking-common-soapmaking-oils/ Also, if it starts to smell rancid or look bad that may be a sign of it being expired. I hope this info helps! Thank you for bringing up this great question!

  1. Sounds great. I can’t wait to try it, but I have a question: After rinsing off the body scrub, does it leave a slippery residue on the shower floor?

    1. Thank you, I hope you like it! I usually use it in the bathtub and it does tend to leave some oil around the rim of the bathtub, so it may make the shower floor a little slippery, but I’m not completely sure. I would say be cautious until you know for sure, I hope that answers your question!

  2. Oh, this brings back good memories of when my friend made me a vanilla brown sugar scrub as a gift. She mentioned the ingredients were edible…I confess, I did eat some of it. Need to make this again–I like the addition of vanilla EO (but I won’t be eating it this time around! πŸ˜‰ )

    1. What a great gift, makes me want to try making a vanilla scrub next time. I did make a coffee sugar scrub once that tasted pretty good. πŸ˜‹ Thanks for checking out my post!

  3. Since we started a Ketogenic WOE, we need a use for the sugar we no longer use for cooking/baking (except for holidays and baking for others!) Thanks for sharing!

    I am re-blogging this to SCAN today – and I plan to make some of the scrub for my own use – dry skin is a big problem in the winter time!
    Thanks for visiting my blog recently, as well.
