Rosemary & lemon sugar body scrub


Lately I’m really into making my beauty products at home. I make most of them, there’s however still a few, which I buy (mostly face products and makeup). DIY-alternatives are usually cheaper and better for your health and the environment.

At the beginning, you may have to invest some money to buy the basic ingredients- essential oils are the biggest expense in my opinion, but once you have all that you need, you can get down to work.

The recipe below doesn’t require any hard-to-find special ingredients, though. If you want to start experimenting without investing any money, it’s the perfect option for you. You’ll probably find all the needful things in your kitchen. 

It was also my first homemade beauty product, which happens to be absolutely amazing. Honestly, it’s the best body scrub I’ve ever had. It smells fabulous and leaves the skin soft and moisturized. It’s also completely natural and toxic free. Sounds interesting? Let’s make it!

Rosemary & lemon sugar body scrub


  • ⅓ cup of coconut oil
  • 2 cups of cane sugar
  • 1 lemon – juice and the zest
  • 1 fresh rosemary branch (or 1 tbsp. of dried rosemary)

In a bowl combine coconut oil (melted), lemon juice and sugar. Add lemon zest and finely chopped rosemary. Mix together and put the ready product (it should have the paste-like consistency) into an airtight container. Keep in fridge up to two weeks.
