Looking for a quick and easy wonderful last minute gift? Try making some homemade sugar scrub. It’s easy, fast, and wonderful.
Here is what you need (this is enough to make 4-5 jars, depending on your size of jar):
- 3 1/2 cups coconut oil
- 2 cups of sugar
- 10 drops of essential oils
- 1 TBSP of Grapeseed oil
Place the coconut oil in the blender and mix for 1 min, then gradually add in the sugar a cup at a time and continue mixing. Add in the essential oils and grapeseed oil and blend well. Spoon the mixture into a glass mason jar and pretty it up with a gift tag and ribbon.
For this mixture I used the following essential oils:
- Cinnamon Bark Oil (8 drops)
- Black Pepper Oil (4 drops)
- Frankincense Oil (4 drops)
- Lemongrass Oil (4 drops)
You can use what ever mixture you like depending on who or what occasion you are gifting it for. I choose this combination for great skin care and for more of a warm/spicey smell (mostly from the cinnamon) since it was for Christmas. Please also note you should use therapeutic grade oils.

For the containers I used the Half Pint Mason Jars from Ball. I find the wide mouth jars work better for usability. I also laminated the labels before sliding them in the jar top. since more then likely the scrub will be used in the shower it’s great to have the label water proof.
