Homemade scrubs are super simple to mix together and cost so much less than anything you’ll find in the store. This Orange Vanilla Body Scrub is 4 ingredients, mixes up in 5 minutes, and smells delicious.
Luxurious bath products are my weakness, and thanks to rich, creamy coconut oil, this scrub definitely feels luxurious. Coconut oil doesn’t smell like coconut, so if you’re not a fan, no problem. This body scrub smells 100% like a Creamsicle.
1 cup sugar
½ cup coconut oil
1 teaspoon orange zest
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
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 orange zest.
Add vanilla extract and whisk until well combined.
Pour sugar mixture into softened coconut oil.
Mix together until everything is well incorporated.
Spoon into a jar and store at room temperature.
Scoop out some scrub and massage it into wet skin.
Rinse thoroughly and pat your skin dry.
Enjoy your super soft skin!
Tips on Orange Vanilla Body Scrub
Nope! This scrub is not for use on your face. Use from your shoulders, down. 🙂
Because of the fresh zest and lack of preservatives, this scrub will keep for 3-4 weeks at room temperature.
Leave out the orange zest for a lovely vanilla sugar scrub.
Yes! I store this body scrub in my shower and use it 1-2 times per week to keep my skin soft. It’s great for smoothing hands, feet, elbows, and other rough patches of skin.
Use any kind you like, though be careful of glass jars in the shower! I save jars from other products I've bought - containers from jellies, jams and relishes or old beauty products work really well - and repurpose those for my DIY scrubs.
