This DIY Whipped Sugar Scrub recipe is easy to make starting with coconut oil and white sugar. Add in a few drops of your favorite essential oil – strawberry, cinnamon or lilac – for a luxurious bath experience!
What’s better than a nice bath or shower with luxurious bath products? One with luxurious bath products you made yourself like this DIY Whipped Sugar Scrub!
If you have ever looked at the label of most bath products there is a looooong list of all kinds of chemicals. By making your own, you know exactly what’s in them and what you’re putting on your body.
We already love a basic sugar scrub, but this whipped sugar scrub makes a fluffy, smooth scrub that’s really a treat to use.
What makes this sugar scrub creamy is the coconut oil. The same solid coconut oil that is used for cooking is also excellent in bath and beauty products!
Coconut oil provides nutrient-rich hydration without feeling sticky or greasy. It makes it perfect for a bath scrub. We always choose the extra-virgin variety.
Homemade bath products also make great gifts! When you mix up a batch of the whipped sugar scrub for yourself, make a second batch to share with your friends and family.
Since this is such a nice, basic recipe, you can play around with scents and colors to make it suitable for any holiday.
We love a red tint with strawberry scent for Valentine’s Day, with cinnamon for Christmas or with lilac scent for Mother’s Day! The scents are easy to add with just a few drops of essential oil.
Your whipped sugar scrub can be stored in any closed container, but I’m a fan of glass jars. They look pretty and keep your scrub close by and ready to use every day.
