A really simple winter sugar body scrub form scratch, made with brown sugar, cinnamon and coconut oil so it just melts into your skin.

brown sugar body scrub

Winter is a really harsh season for the skin, so I created this winter sugar body scrub with that fact in mind. Although I’ve just purchased a brand new body scrub, I came to the idea of making one myself. This is a great last minute gift, it is really easy to make and it smells delicious.

The brown sugar will exfoliate your skin and the coconut oil will give you moisture. Add cinnamon to that and your winter baths will be perfect.

Affordable DIY gift for yourself or your loved ones! A super natural body scrub with brown sugar and coconut oil that smells divine.
Cook 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes
Servings 2 jars


  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup coconut oil
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste


  • Combine dry ingredients in a bowl. Add vanilla paste and coconut oil. If the coconut oil is hard (depends on the temperature of your pantry), you can put it in the microwave for about 15-20 seconds, so that it softens.
  • Mix everything until combined. You want to get a sugary paste out of this. Depending on the consistency, add more sugar or oil if needed.
  • Put the scrub into jars and decorate any way you like. Keep in a dark place and use with 1-2 months.


You can use a mix of light and dark brown sugar. An alternative would also be demerara sugar or turbinado.
