Facial scrubs are way easier to make than you might think. Many of us would drop twenty dollars on a scrub, which lines the pockets of the companies that make them, but ends up costing you a fortune. So, let’s get into the homemade version. Or several homemade versions.

Baking & Spices

  • 2 drops food coloring depending on which batch you make, yellow or red
  • 10 drops lemon essential oil or 10-15 drops raspberry or vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar, or if you don’t have that, white sugar, granulated

Oils & Vinegars

  • 1/4 cup Coconut oil (see below for instructions on using other oils)


Take your favorite oil (coconut, almond, jojoba, olive, etc.) and put a little bit of powdered sugar in it (also known as icing sugar). If you don’t happen to have any all you need to do is put some granulated table sugar into a food processor for a minute or two. Add a touch of your favorite flavored extract or essential oil if you’d like (completely optional, but some of them carry some pretty incredible benefits.
