Mothers Day is Sunday and Teacher Appreciation Week is this week. Why not give the gift of pampering to the special moms and teachers in your life? This Coconut Oil Sugar Scrub is the perfect gift. It only takes 3 ingredients to whisk someone away to relaxation.

4 cups coconut oil
2 cups sugar (either white or raw)
10 drops any essential oil (I used vanilla pomegranate)
Place coconut oil in blender and mix on medium speed for approximately 30 seconds-1 minute.
Gradually add in sugar a cup at a time and continue mixing. Raw sugar is coarser and will exfoliate better than white sugar. However, I made this at our Mothers of Preschoolers meeting and we ran out of the raw sugar so that is why mine is white. Both kinds work, it just depends on how coarse you want your scrub.
Add in essential oil and mix together.
Spoon the mixture into a glass mason jar. One batch in enough to fill 4 jars so you have 4 presents made in about 5-10 minutes! Attach a pretty tag to the jar. and you have the perfect gift!
You can add a bath pouf to make it extra pampering!

there’s not a printable for this?
The printed tag that I used for this scrub was pre-printed and handed out at our MOPS meeting where I made the scrub. So no, I did not make a separate printable for the scrub.
Hi Kelly. I was looking at ur lavender coconut oil scrub, & it says the measurements are the same for ur other sugar scrubs – 1/4 cup coconut oil to 1 cup sugar. When I looked at this recipe, the measurements seem to be flip-flopped – 1/4 cup of sugar to 1 cup coconut oil (x4 on both). So, which one is right? And by the way, thanks for ur great blog!
Hi Victoria. The ratio of the coconut oil to sugar should be 2:1.
Hi Kelly, how long is the shelf life for this once it is made?
It should be good for about a year.
Awesome! Thank you very much!
