DIY Sugar Hand Scrub

This awesome sugar hand scrub is so simple and can be easily edited into a lip scrub too! (Don't worry I included that recipe too!) It’s fun to make with the kiddos and since it’s all safe, non toxic ingredients you don’t have to worry if someone accidentally puts a finger in their mouth. Lol it might not be an “accident” at all!

You can whip up a batch of DIY sugar hand scrub for a fun project or to give away as gifts! Depending on what size container you choose to put your sugar scrub in it could either be used as a hand or lip scrub; or even a full body scrub!

Experiment with different carrier oils for added benefits and of course you can alternate your essential oils for different delicious smelling blends!

*Note; I only use Young Living oils and do not recommend purchasing cheap or synthetic oils; actually, I highly suggest you don’t as these could cause adverse affects! I only stand behind Young Living and their 100% pure, therapeutic grade essential oils. If you would like to know more, please feel free to email me or read this blog post.

DIY Sugar Scrub Recipe

Sugar Scrub Ingredients:

1/4 Cup Organic Brown Sugar

1/4 Cup Raw Cane Sugar

2 Tablespoons Carrier Oil (Jojoba, Grapeseed, Olive, Sunflower, etc)

5-10 Drops of Essential Oil of Choice (Lemon, Peppermint, Lavender, or Vanilla all make amazing scents!)


Mix all ingredients in a small bowl until well combined. If the mixture is too dry, add more carrier oil 1 teaspoon at a time until it is less sandy and a little more liquid-y. Leave your concoction by the sink or in the shower for wonderfully soft and supple hands!

DIY Sugar Lip Scrub Recipe

LIP Sugar Scrub Ingredients:

2 Teaspoons Brown Sugar

1 Teaspoon Raw Cane Sugar (optional)

2.5 Tablespoons Coconut Oil (melted)

1 Teaspoon Honey (or you can use sweet almond oil or vitamin E oil instead for added benefits. The honey helps it stick together a bit better though.)

5 Drops of Desired Essential Oil (Lemon, Lavender, Cassia, Thieves, Cinnamon, or Peppermint make great additions!)


Mix all ingredients thoroughly. Put in a small glass jar and allow it to set. Scoop out a small amount when ready to use and apply in circular motions to lip area. Use water to rinse and enjoy soft, smooth lips!

These make super fun DIY crafts for a girls night, birthday party, or make-and-take event. Or you can whip up a few batches and turn them into fun hostessing gifts or stocking stuffers! You can easily find cute glass jars on Amazon and all the stickers you need to make that little gifts a fun gift that keeps on giving! Or just save up some empty baby food jars and repurpose them for your DIY Sugar Hand Scrub or Lip Scrub!
