Homemade Body Scrub Recipes

So, I’m obsessed with natural beauty recipes like homemade body scrubs. Store bought scrubs often contain preservatives that help to extend the product’s shelf life. And you know how fun and bright the colors are? They might be pretty, but those colors are actually artificial dyes.

All these additives can be harmful and have long-term effects on your health. Since I have become interested in holistic living, I’ve realized how simple it is to create effective and natural products. You can make your own body scrubs with the ingredients you already have in your kitchen.

I’ve listed 3 amazing scrubs you can try at home for less than half the price of department store scrubs. I hope you enjoy and please share your beauty recipes in the comments below.

Vanilla Lavender Body Scrub


2 cups Epsom salt
1 cup sea salt
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
½ cup olive oil
15 drops of lavender essential oil


In a mixing bowl, combine salts and olive oil. Add vanilla extract and essential oils. Stir with a wooden spoon until blended.

Green Tea Body Scrub


1 cup sugar
⅛ cup grapeseed oil
⅛ cup brewed green tea (cooled)
1 bag of green tea


Cut open 1 tea bag and take out leaves. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well.

Coconut and Brown Sugar Body Scrub


2 cups brown sugar
1 cup coconut oil (melted)
2 tablespoon vanilla extract


In a bowl, combine ingredients and stir well until blended.

  1. Hi, thank you for these recipes! I love to use this one in the summer to keep my skin glowing and to add an extra punch to the exfoliation. It’s also really great at clearing up back acne!

    1 lemon, juiced with seeds removed
    2 tablespoons of olive oil
    dead sea salt added until desired consistency ( I like a really thick consistency)

    Mix them all together and apply using gentle circular motions. Focus especially on problem areas like cellulite or rough skin. Rinse with warm water and you’re done!

    Thank you!
