DIY Citrus Sugar Body Scrub

This amazing body scrub smells so good that you’ll want to eat it! It’s great for hands and feet or use for a whole body scrub in the shower to leave your skin feeling smooth and beautiful. It takes just 5 minutes to make.


Tip: If you don’t have raw sugar (or if you want a finer exfoliation), use white sugar.


  • 1 cup raw sugar
  • 2 tablespoons liquid coconut oil (or 1/2 cup solid coconut oil)
  • Zest from 1 lime
  • Zest from 1 lemon
  • Zest from 1 orange
  • 2 sprigs mint leaves (finely chopped)
  • 1/2 teaspoon (approx. 12 drops) 100% peppermint essential oil
  • 250 ml (8 oz) jar


  1. PutĀ sugar in a bowl. Add coconut oil and stir quickly with a spoon to combine.
  2. Add all the zest, mint and peppermint oil and stir quickly.
  3. Once combined, spoon the scrub into the jar. Add a sprig of peppermint, gift tag and/or ribbon to decorate if you wish.
