Since the first time I was introduced to Sugar Scrubs I’ve been completely obsessed! If you’ve never used a Sugar Scrub, let me explain how wonderful they are… do you like baby-soft skin?? Do you wish you could figure out how to make your skin feel healthy, young, and glowy (especially in the winter)?
Ok, make a sugar scrub!!
They are so easy to make plus they make AWESOME gifts for any occasion! (I’ve also given them as party favors at a baby shower!). You will definitely want to make extra to keep for yourself if you’re planning on gifting them!
I like to use this Organic Refined Coconut Oil to keep as many of the wonderful skin and health benefits of Coconut oil, but you can definitely use the ingredients listed for each scrub whether organic or not and get wonderful results!
( I get the refined Coconut Oil because I’m not a fan of Coconut smell or taste, the unrefined has the smell and taste of Coconut, plus it may mess with the scent you are trying to achieve with each scrub… but totally up to you!).
I also personally add some of this Vitamin E to my scrubs because it acts as a natural preservative and adds extra moisturizing properties to make your scrub even more amazing! Plus it goes a long way, 10-15 drops to your batch and call it done!
You will soon realize that my list is inspired by Fall & Winter scents we all know and love! Let’s get to it…
1. Cranberry Mint Sugar Scrub
This looks good enough to eat! In fact, you could actually go ahead and eat it, that’s the beauty of all-natural Sugar Scrubs! I can’t wait to give this recipe a try! Head over to Simply Stacie for the full recipe & instructions!

5. Homemade Apple Pie Sugar Scrub
I told you I was into apples, and apple pie is my absolute favorite dessert, so this scrub may be featured last but truly it’s my dream scrub!! Head over to Creative Me Inspired You for the recipe!
I can’t recommend sugar scrubs enough, you really need to make one because once you do, you’ll be hooked! There are endless scent possibilities, and everyone loves getting these as a gift!
Depending on the recipes you may want to double or even triple the recipe if you’re thinking about gifting these. The ingredients go a really long way and it comes out to really inexpensive when it’s all said and done, plus they are so easy to make!
