Homemade Vanilla Sugar Scrub with Roses …takes only 4 ingredients and 5 minutes to make! So simple and will leave your skin silky-smooth.

Have you ever made a homemade sugar scrub before? I make them every winter. My hands get so dry, so I’ll rub the scrub on them every few days to exfoliate and help moisturize them. This vanilla rose sugar scrub smells amazing too. It would make the perfect homemade gift for Valentine’s Day or Mother’s Day! All you need is 4 simple ingredients: coconut oil, sugar, vanilla and rose petals. If you don’t have roses on hand, you can just make the vanilla sugar scrub and leave those out. Vanilla sugar scrub is always a classic favorite too!

I’m super excited to be partnering with Kroger on this post, as I am one of their their influencers this year. I found all of the ingredients at my local Kroger for this sugar scrub. The Simple Truth coconut oil is my favorite!

I used my favorite circle punch to cut it out and then used my Tombow (permanent adhesive) to stick it onto the jar.

  5. I LOVE MAKING SUGAR SCRUB! I have never added rose petal to the mix. Thanks for the idea!

    These are perfect DIY gifts! Looks fancy! I would love to try this! Thanks for sharing! :D

  7. I love DIY posts like this. I have never made sugar scrub, but you are making me want to!

  8. This is such a fun idea! I love homemade body scrubs!

  9. Would love to try to make this but I don’t have rose petals and I’m one of those gals who tries to only venture into a store twice a month.  ;)  I do have rosemary essential oil.  How many drops would you think?

    • Rosemary will bring an entirely different tone to it. You’ll want to make sure what you have is safe for skin contact, and I’d only add one drop.

  10. I love this.  I added lavender and patchouli oils to mine instead of the rise petals but it makes my hands feel so soft and works great on my face to during the dry winter months. 

  11. LOVE this! It’s amazing! I took advantage of the roses my hubby got me for Valentine’s Day. Thought it would be a perfect use when they started to look bad. Whipped up 4 batches to keep one for myself and give some for some upcoming birthdays. Tried it on my hands after one batch and WOW, it’s perfect. Simple ingredients and quick to make. Thank you!

  12. I loved. Thank you for sharing 💝

  13. Cute idea for Mother’s Day! could you please share the size of jar (is it a mason jar).

    thank you.

    • I Heart Naptime Reply

      Yes! It’s just a little 8 ounce mason jar I had – it’s my favorite size for making jam and jelly, too.

  14. I would love to gift this for Christmas! how long does it last? I’m worried about discoloration if I make too far ahead of time, or if they don’t use it right away.

    • That’s a valid concern! You should be able to make it a week before Christmas without issues, and definitely store in the fridge while you’re waiting for gifting time!

      I’ve had it last longer, but not by much because I use it up so quickly!

  15. I finally made this today for gifting this weekend!  My daughter sampled it and her skin is SO soft and it smells divine!    

    I’d like to add that the lady in the floral dept was concerned of my use when I told her what I was doing- the roses they get are from South America, and she wasn’t sure of what pesticides were used on them.   I decided to go to a local florist who assured me her roses were grown locally without pesticides.  Can never be too careful I suppose!   Thank you for the great idea, and also prompt response to my previous question about shelf life!! 

  16. For your vanilla rose sugar scrub, could crushed Rose hips be used instead of rose petals??
    Thanks

  17. I would like to try this but I’m concerned about oils in the bath area.  I’m afraid my husband will slip and fall.

  18. Could you use other flower petals instead of rose? I have a big blooming cherry tree in my lawn but roses have not yet bloomed.

    • It should be okay… cherry petals are antioxidants and have anti-inflammatory properties. They can also reduce signs of aging. However, since they are considerably smaller than rose petals, then you should add a few more to the mix. Make sure all pollen is removed— sometimes pollen travels with the petals when they are plucked.

    • I’ve never tried other petals, but I think it should work!
