First, I’d like to apologize for my absence last week. I got sick and missed all kinds of good stuff like my work holiday party and the 60 degree weather. For once, crafting was not on my priority list. It was not a good weekend. But this weekend is a better one.
Valentine’s Day is coming up… That means you want to look and feel your best, right? Of course. Forget V-Day though, I want smooth skin all the time. Sugar scrub definitely helps with that.
Seriously, this might be the best sugar scrub I’ve ever made. I know I’m a little bias, but it really does smell great. The citrus-y scent seems to brighten everything up (I think it’s mostly the grapefruit). And who doesn’t want a bright and fun Valentine’s Day?
The sugar scrub is really easy to make. I didn’t time it, but I’m pretty sure it took about 5 minutes excluding photography time. Everything you need + instructions are below.
Sugar Scrub Materials
- 2 bowls
- glass jar
- Coconut oil
- Lemon and grapefruit essential oil
Measure your sugar. This will depend on the size of the jar you are using.
I poured mine into the jar and then into the bowl to get an accurate measurement. My jar was 8.5 oz.
Microwave 4 big spoonfuls of coconut oil until it’s liquefied.
Pour in 20 drops of grapefruit oil and 15 drops of lemon oil.
If you’re making a larger batch, you might want to add a few more of each.
Pour the oil over the sugar and mix it together. It should be about the same consistency of a slushy.
Pour it into the jar.
If you’re feeling festive, print and cut out the Valentine’s Day printables below. The round ones are the perfect size for mason jar lids. If you can find some pink ribbon, use the heart printable too!
Hope you like it!

Love DIY scrubs! I may have to add a grapefruit essential oil to my collection to try this one out. Slowly collecting more and more essential oils and I am just loving them for all the DIY possibilities!
I would recommend it! I love the grapefruit, especially in the winter and 0 degree weather. It reminds me of warmer, happier days. If you try it, let me know how you like it! Do you have any essential oil recommendations for me?
So far eucalyptus and lemon are my favorite. But I haven’t tried too many yet!
I like both of those as well. Right now, peppermint and grapefruit are my go tos. Try lemon and peppermint together!

I made some of these for Christmas gifts. I used lavender, but I may need to make some grapefruit now…with a splash of eucalyptus – that’d be the perfect combo for energizing after a hot yoga session. Thanks for the inspiration, Megan!
That sounds amazing. Nice combo idea. I have some eucalyptus too so I have to try it.
