Get ready for beautiful soft, glowing skin! This edible DIY Sugar Body Scrub is so easy to make and will leave your skin incredibly soft and supple!




  • 1 cup sugar of choice (organic pure cane, brown pure cane, turbinado, etc.)
  • 3 tablespoons, give or take, sweet almond oil, jojoba or extra virgin olive oil

optional ingredients:

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract w/o alcohol
  • few drops of vitamin E oil
  • 1/2 small lemon, juice of
  • or a few drops of your favorite essential oils such as spearmint, lavender, grapefruit, etc (see notes)


Mix: Place sugar in a small/medium size container and add the oil 1 tablespoon at a time, mixing in between. You want the consistency to be sandy, not soupy. If the mix is too soupy the sugars will dissolve in a day or two and not slough the skin as well, but you will still get added moisture from the oil.

To Use: At the end of showering, it’s best to pat the skin dry a bit and then rub in circular motions all over the body and rinse well. I find it works best after soaking in the tub for at least 20 minutes. This will really loosen the skin making the scrub work at its best leaving your skin soft and supple!

Can be used 2 – 4 times a week (depending on the sugar type).

Store: Use within 1 month


Do not consume if adding essential oils or research before you do to make sure they are ingestible, especially if you are pregnant.
