Winter sugar body scrub

Affordable DIY gift for yourself or your loved ones! A super natural body scrub that smells divine.


  • 300 grams (1 1/2 cups) brown sugar
  • 200 grams (about 1 1/22 cups) coconut oil
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
  • Glass jars with airtight lids
  • Ribbon
  • Cardboard paper or labels and a pen/marker


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Put the scrub into jars and decorate any way you like.


This recipe makes two small jars of body scrub. One jar should last you a few months, so you don’t have to worry about it going bad. Double or triple the ingredients if you are making this for more people. I think your mom, sisters, coworkers, … will love it!
