How to Make Body Scrub

Most people go to the spa in order to get a body scrub. Such treatment costs hundreds of dollars, which will definitely take a toll on your savings, especially if you are looking to do this regularly. On the other hand, you can simply buy a commercial body scrub for less than half the price. And you can enjoy this body scrub multiple times before it runs out. However, the most economical way to enjoy the relaxing effects of a body scrub is to make one at home. The ingredients for making a body scrub are easy to get and the steps are easy to follow as well. If you want to learn how to make body scrub at home, here are three easy recipes: Salt and Sugar Body Scrub

  1. Get ingredients and materials:

    2 cups salt

    2 cups sugar

    1 cup carrier oil

    5 drops essential oil of your choice


  2. In a glass bowl, combine salt and sugar.

    Make sure that the granules are small so that they won’t tear your skin. Basic table salt and sugar will work quite well. For sensitive skin, dark brown sugar might be gentler on the skin.

  3. Add carrier oil. For this body scrub, you may choose several kinds of oils, such as baby oil, virgin coconut oil, vegetable oil, almond oil, safflower oil, or olive oil. Add this slowly to make sure that the oil will not overwhelm the salt and sugar mixture. Mix it with a spoon and expect the salt to settle at the bottom.

  4. Add five drops of essential oil and then mix it with a spoon. Choose an essential oil based on the smell that you want to achieve and the therapeutic properties that you want to take advantage of.

  5. After mixing, spoon your newly-made body scrub into a container and enjoy.

Lemon and Thyme Scrub
  1. Get ingredients:

    2 teaspoons fresh thyme

    Zest of one lemon

    ½ cup pure organic almond oil

    1 cup kosher salt


  2. Pour the salt in a clean container with a tight-fitting lid. An alternative to plain kosher salt is infused salt.

  3. Add lemon zest and thyme and mix it with a spoon. However, if you are using infused salt, you don’t need to follow this step.

  4. Pour in the almond oil and screw the lid tightly. This can be stored for up to six months. If you want to use it, mix the oil and salt together first before applying it on your body.

Banana Sugar Body Scrub
  1. Prepare your ingredients:

    1 ripe or overripe banana

    3 tablespoons granulated sugar

    ¼ teaspoon pure vanilla extract or essential oil (optional)

  2. In a small bowl, mix all the ingredients together. Crush the banana with a fork to form a chunky goop before mixing it with the sugar. Avoid overmashing as the mixture might become too thin. You can add the vanilla extract to make it extra moisturizing, but even without the oil, the banana and sugar will work perfectly as a body scrub.

  3. Place the mixture in a container for later use. Use it within the week since bananas have a short shelf life.

Learning how to make body scrub at home saves you money as you do not need to buy commercial ones or go to the spa to enjoy a heavenly body scrub. The simple sugar and salt body scrub is enough to relax you, while the energizing lemon and thyme body scrub will surely invigorate your senses. On the other hand, the moisturizing properties of the banana sugar body scrub will leave your skin smooth and soft.
