DIY Grapefruit Body Scrub

Sharing is caring!

Treat your hands, feet – and the rest of your body – to an exfoliating and moisturizing scrub! This 3 ingredient grapefruit body scrub takes minutes to mix up and will leave your skin super soft.


1 cup coconut oil
2 cups sugar
2 Tbsp grapefruit zest

Place coconut oil in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave in 5 second intervals until soft, but not melted. Stir coconut oil until no lumps remain.

In a separate bowl, whisk together sugar and grapefruit zest. 

Pour sugar and zest into softened coconut oil. 

Mix together until everything is well incorporated. 

Spoon into a jar and store at room temperature. 


  • This scrub is not for use on your face. Use from your shoulders, down. 🙂 
  • Because of the oil in the citrus zest, this scrub will last up to 1 month before those oils will start to change their scent.
  • Coconut oil becomes liquid at warm temps, so if you store the scrub in your shower, it may soften or contain some liquid when you use it. But it’ll still work great. Just mix it up with your finger before using.
  • Any citrus zest can be swapped for the grapefruit zest.

Give it as a Gift!

  • Grapefruit Body Scrub is such a fun and easy gift to give. I love packaging it in cute, little jars to make it feel extra special.

    Ooh. This looks awesome. I have tried it with lemon, but not yet with grapefruit, and I LOVE the smell of grapefruit. Thanks for the great idea!
