Homemade Sugar Scrub Recipe

DIY Sugar ScrubI discovered this concoction in a magazine in which C&H® Pure Cane Sugar was promoting their product with the homemade sugar scrub recipe. I have combined the scrub with hand-knitted socks and a rice heat therapy bag for the ultimate birthday gift.

  • 1 cup sugar *
  • 1/2 c. vegetable oil
  • Oil from one vitamin E capsule
  • 1-2 drops essential oil (e.g., lavender, orange, lemon)
  • 1 16oz. glass container with a lid

Combine all the ingredients in a medium bowl until well blended. Using a spatula, transfer the mix into the container and secure the lid. Contents will settle, mix before using. Scoop a teaspoon or two of the scrub onto your hands/feet/elbows and gently massage in circular motions onto your skin. The scrub will tighten on your skin. Leave on for 3-4 minutes before thoroughly rinsing.

*You can add more sugar to reach the desired scrub texture.
