Brown Sugar and Coconut Body Scrub Recipe
1 cup Organic Light Brown Sugar
1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla extract
1/4 cup Organic Coconut oil
*******Mini mason jars used for jams or a Glass Jar with Leak Proof Rubber Gasket and Hinged Lid are perfect for storing the scrub.
Melt the coconut oil over low heat until melted. In a small bowl whisk together the coconut oil and brown sugar until all lumps are gone. Add the vanilla extract and mix, that’s it!
Next add the scrub into cute glass jars, add a tag and twine and show your mom how much you love her!
Promise, this scrub will leave your skin feeling soft, smooth and exfoliated.

My dry winter skin needs buckets of this- it looks amazing!! Thanks for sharing Kristin!
Oh I bet that smells amazing Kristin! I love sugar scrubs and I definitely need to try this one. 🙂
This is such a great idea for Mother’s Day or any day! I’m going to have make some and give myself a spa day.
Your scrub recipe looks great and I like your jar tags too! Thanks Kristin!
I love simple, natural spa ideas! I cannot wait to try this! How did you make your cute label?
Thanks Karen, I’m going to try and add that to the post, I’ll let you know when it is up.
Does it need to be organic brown sugar? I made this tonight (a double batch) and ended up adding at least another cup and a half of brown sugar to make it more crumbly than soggy. I’m wondering if there’s a texture difference with the sugars.
All the brands are a little different but I have found the organic does not seem as moist as the regular. (if that makes sense)
Love this idea!! I made some and I am saving some in a 4 oz mason jar. I was wondering if you used something to seal the jar to help preserve the scrub? If so, what technique did you use? Also, what is the shelf life of the sugar scrub.
My seven year old loved the smell of the scrub and he wanted to go buy doughnuts:)
Hi Angie- Glad you liked it! I didn’t use anything other then the lid to keep it sealed, wondering if you could put a layer of saran wrap. I made a few batches and still have one from a year ago and it is still perfect 🙂
Does the coconut oil need to be “unrefined”? I have refined currently.
Since you are not easting it either one is fine to use 🙂
Where do I have to store it? Because I made it for my lab and Im wondering where to store it.
Either the fridge or a cool dark place 🙂
it worked really well i love it so much i use it everyday
Checking out your best posts! Thanks for a scrub recipe that doesn’t call for essential oils.
Your welcome, thanks for the giggle 🙂
