Coconut and Sugar Facial, Body and Lip Scrub

Prep Time

5 minutes while in the shower!

Cooking Time

5 minutes


Just enough


1-2 Tbsp coconut oil

3 Tablespoons sugar (I use coconut sugar)

You can also add therapeutic grade essential oils for desired scent and/or effect 

* I would be very grateful to you for purchasing certified pure therapeutic grade essential oils here


In a bowl, mix the two ingredients together. You can do this with a spoon or your fingers—it’ll take a minute if your oil is semi-hard. You can melt the oil if you like, just don’t get it too hot, or the sugar will melt in it and you could also burn your skin. Warm is good though because it can help open your pores. Make sure you’re either doing this over the skin or in the shower, and that you aren’t going to drip it onto your clothes (it will leave oil marks).

Using your fingertips, gently massage the oil/sugar mixture all over your face. Be extra gentle around your eyes (and avoid getting it in your eyes). You can massage for up to five minutes. I usually do it for 2 minutes, and then I take a warm wet wash cloth and wipe away all the excess oil and sugar. 

Voila—exfoliated and bright vibrant skin!
