Hey friends! How’s everyone doing?! I have a simple Valentine gift for you today. I was trying to think of something easy and inexpensive for Valentines and thought these would be perfect. Have you ever made homemade sugar scrubs? They are so yummy and easy to make. You have to try them. I made a brown sugar scrub for some of my girl friends and they all loved them.

The mineral oil makes your hands super soft! My hands get so dry in the winter, so this really helped. Ready for the recipe…

Homemade brown sugar scrub

Ingredients

  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup mineral oil,olive oil or coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Instructions

  1. Combine the sugars in a medium sized bowl. Mix in the mineral oil and vanilla and stir until combined. Once you have your sugar scrub you can place it in baby food containers or mason jars. I have tons of baby food jars, so I used those. :)

I thought it would be fun to make some sticker labels for the top… they were pretty boring! All I did was type out “sugar scrub” and add a heart graffic. Super simple. Then I printed it on this sticker paper (link below) and cut it out to fit the top of the lids. Then I rounded the edges and stuck it on.

For the jars, I just spray painted the lids and tied some ric rac on. Super easy!

That’s it! This brown sugar scrub is super easy to make and is a fun Valentines for your girl friends!

    I’ve never tried to make my own before. But this sounds easy! Thanks for sharing!

    I love sugar scrubs! They are awsome in the winter. I tend to go to fruity scents probably because I miss the summer so much. I love how they slough off all the dead skin and leave it feeling so smooth.

    This really would be better to use olive oil, almond, oil, anything other than mineral oil. Mineral oil does not really get absorbed into your skin like other oils do. I recently made a body butter with shea butter, coconut oil, and almond oil it it is LOVELY!! I think this recipe sounds perfect with coconut oil!

    Will this sugar scrub keep or should it be used right away? I want to make it for a friend but won’t be able to get it to her for about a month.

      Hi Katie. It keeps for a few months, you’ll just need to stir it up if it starts separating before then. Have a great weekend!

    I just made this and it is super easy. Thank you for this recipe.
    I made it with seaseme body oil and it smells super good. My question is can you use any type of body oil for this recipe?

      Hi Katie! No not really. It is a little bit because of the oil, but it should definitely be more sugary than oiley. You could pat it down with paper towels to take out the oil.

    Mineral oil is petroleum based. A plant-based oil is safer for our bodies (coconut, almond, olive).

    Hey love your post, I was just wondering what and where you get the small tablet like containers that you have put your scrub in?

    Do you have to use Dark Brown Sugar or will Light Brown Sugar be ok? I am going to use this recipe for a craft night. We have 25 people coming so I’m trying to keep the price down…the Dollar Tree has 16 oz box of Light Brown Sugar for $1.
    Thanks
