I love making homemade sugar scrubs. With a base recipe of 1 cup sugar and 1/2 cup oil, you can easily customize them with essential oils, extracts and more. In this case, I pulled everything right out of my pantry: grapeseed oil, granulated sugar, cocoa powder, and hazelnut extract – yup, just FOUR ingredients!
Much like my gingerbread sugar scrub and peppermint sugar scrub, this also makes a fabulous gift! Perfect as favors for baby and bridal showers or a girls night in and a little bit goes a long way! I prefer to use either coconut oil or grapeseed oil in my sugar scrubs. The coconut oil has some really great health properties while the grapeseed oil yields a softer texture and less fragrance. Olive and almond oils are also commonly used in homemade sugar scrubs, but they can have a strong fragrance of their own.
I love homemade sugar scrubs for a number of reasons:
- Easy and generally inexpensive to make.
- Easy to customize fragrance.
- Removes dry, dead skin.
- Lasts two to three months.
- Moisturizes skin long after use.
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- ½ grapeseed oil
- 1 tbsp + 1 tsp cocoa powder
- 1 tsp hazelnut extract
- Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl and stir until evenly combined.
- Package in an airtight container for up to two months.
