Frankincense Sugar Scrub

As promised, here is the Frankincense Sugar Scrub Recipe.  Thank you so much for remembering to send others to my site for the recipe!


Frankincense Sugar Scrub Recipe 

3/4 cup Raw Sugar

1/4 Granulated White Sugar

up to 1/4 Olive Oil or Coconut Oil (I like them less oily and used about 1/8 cup)

      *I purposely chose to use Olive Oil in keeping authentic with the Christmas Story in the Middle East.

5 drops of Frankincense DoTerra Essential Oil

*optional—2 drops of Wild Orange DoTerra Essential Oil

Mix the sugars together in a bowl and then slowly add Olive Oil while mixing.  Add enough oil to get a good consistency…but not too oily.  Add your essential oil(s) drops and mix together again.  Scrub should last up to 3 months in an air tight container.  Use the scrub on skin as to exfoliate for smooth, soft skin.  Makes about 1 cup.

    This is just what I needed to a few special people in my office. Since I like to work with wood, saws, etc. this is right up my alley. Thanks for the inspiration. Merry Christmas!

    Wow, love this :-) From this post I found your peppermint one and I am making as gifts. I managed to buy some cute retro glass mini milk bottles that are simply perfect. But I’m from the UK, so not so useful for you guys, sorry :-( I have one question though Amy, if I use coconut oil on the peppermint ones, does that make it smell coconutty?? I have essential oils I want to use, but don’t want it to smell like coconut too. But coconut oil is cheaper and easier to get in large quantities here…

      Most coconut oils will give it a hint of coconut smell. So the other option would be to go with a lighter olive oil or grape seed or almond oil. All of those will work well. I LOVE mini milk bottles. So glad you were able to find some. I bet they are perfect for this! Thank you May!

    Wish I’d seen this in time to do it for our children’s minister! Will save for next year!

    How many batches do you think you can get out of a bottle of the oil. I am finding that it’s pretty expensive for 15ml of the oil, and I’m trying to justify it with a cost breakdown for myself. Thanks again for the wonderful ideas and recipes! I really want to try them out, especially the myrrh!

    I absolutely love your frankincense sugar scrub and myrrh bath salts idea. I want to make these for Christmas gifts. Where do you get the bottles you use?

    Thank you for sharing this idea.
