DIY Body Scrub Recipe

Total Time 5 mins
Servings 1 cup


  • 1/2 cup raw cane sugar
  • 1/2 cup Epsom salt
  • 3 tbsp raw cacao powder
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp avocado oil
  • 5-8 drops peppermint essential oil


  • In a bowl, whisk together the sugar, salt, and cacao powder.
  • Add in the olive oil, avocado oil, and peppermint essential oil. Stir to combine.
  • Transfer the mixture to an airtight container, such as a mason jar.
  • Place the scrub on the ledge of the shower, out of the stream of water. Wash and rinse your body in warm water.
  • Step away from the water and apply 1 to 2 tablespoons of body scrub at a time to the desired area. Gently massage into your skin in a circular motion for 1 to 2 minutes, focusing on dry areas to remove dead skin cells.
  • Rinse the sugar scrub completely from your skin. Pat your skin dry with a clean towel.
