Homemade Sugar Scrub

Applying sugar scrub helps hydrate and keep the moisture in the skin.

I love this recipe; it helps to prevent strength marks, treat dark spots, It’s great to help with sun damage, an excellent gentle exfoliant, and It works well to slough off those dead skin cells & reveal healthy glowing skin. ( Grandma’s Secret 🤫)

I like to do it once or twice a week.


1 cup brown cane sugar

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons lime juice

1/4 spoon baking soda

15 drops mint, lavender or choice essential oil


Combine and stir all ingredients in a bowl.

Store in a glass container.

To Use

I usually take a shower first, then take small amounts of the scrub with a spoon and rub all over my body in circular motions for about 1 minute; let it sit for 3-4 minutes, rinse off and pat dry with a towel. This makes my skin feel heavenly.

I never do it on my face because I have sensitive skin. Just 1 tablespoon of sugar, and 1 1/2 of pure honey mixed in, is more gently for my face.

I would say try it in a small area before you rub it all over your body in case of allergies.

I hope it works for you as great as it does for me. Rise and shine! ☀️
