Lavender Sugar Scrub Recipe

Today I am finally sharing my newest Sugar Scrub Recipe.  I love experimenting with new Sugar Scrubs and when we use up the last one, it’s time to come up with another one.  This time I chose to make a Lavender Sugar Scrub.


But I think I am finally losing it… Last night I finally sat down to edit these pictures that I had sitting on my camera for the past several days, and couldn’t figure out why I couldn’t get them to download.  The computer wasn’t even recognizing my camera card.  Then I searched through the house to find the download cord only to find that wouldn’t work either.


So I gave up, ate a snack, and then went to bed.  This morning I was determined to figure out the problem…after the kids went to school of course and you know what?  The camera photo card was sitting in my other computer.  Gah!  Haha!  It’s amazing what a good night’s rest will do for your brain.


So, my camera card is not corrupt and all is well and the bonus?  I get to share this recipe today and you get to make some!  You might want too because the Lavender smells amazing! This Lavender Sugar Scrub would also make a great Valentine’s Day gift!


Lavender Sugar Scrub Recipe

1/2 cup white granulated sugar

1/2 cup Raw Sugar

up to 1/4 Olive Oil or Coconut Oil melted (or almond oil) as needed

1 tablespoon dried Lavender (optional but recommended)

3-4 drops DoTerra Lavender Essential Oil

Directions:  Mix together the sugars and slowly add the coconut or almond oil while stirring.  Pour in as much oil as you need to get your desired consistency.  I do not like my sugar scrubs too oily so I always use less than 1/4 cup.  Stir and mix thoroughly.  Stir in the essential oil and the Lavender.  Store in an airtight container.  Lasts up to 3 months if you keep bacteria and germs out of the scrub.

To use:  Rub a little bit of the scrub on your body or between your hands with a little bit of water.  Rinse with warm water to remove excess oils.  It will give your skin a nice exfoliation and leave your skin feeling soft and smooth and smelling like Lavender.  Great for use in the shower or bath and before bed time.

    I was trying to get your labels but sadly I don’t think it works anymore. However, I have to say I LOVE LOVE LOVE your blog! :-D

    I use both lavender and frankincense oils on my daughter for medical reasons and would love to have a sugar scrub to use for her during bath time – I looked at both your frankincense and lavender recipes and would like to know if it would be possible to combine the two oils into one scrub? And should I use the 3/4c raw:1/4c white ratio or the 1/2c raw:1/2c white ratio? Thanks!!!

    Hi Amy, I just love your recipes and I am a wellness advocate for doTERRA. I was wanting to know what size jar you used for the lavender scrub. What do I store the bath salts in if I am having a make and take and would like for my guests to be able to take them home and then be able to put in the decorative jar. Thank you.

      No. I like to mix things up. You can totally leave it out and it will work just fine. I do like the bigger texture of the raw sugar and it makes a nice exfoliant.

    Hi, I have all the ingredients ready but am in the UK
    What’s the equivalent of cups in grams? I’ve found a few conversion sights but it’s confusing me :) Also can I use all granulated sugar?
    Looking forward to making your recipe x

    Hey there- I love you site! ! Especially- your scrubs! I just tried the lavender scrub with coconut oil…..put it in a mason jar and it hardened beyond belief overnight…..I know coconut oil hardens….just wondering what I can do to soften it?

    Thanks so much

    • says

      If you put it in a warm room it should loosen up. You can also place the jar in a little bit of warm water (with the lid shut tightly of course) and see if you can loosen it up again. Some coconut oils harden much more than others!! Hope that helps!

    Loving this recipe! Thinking of making as gifts for my sisters bridal shower, wondering if you have any idea of how many times this recipe can be made with the lavender oil from do terra?

    • says

      Yes! Any sugar should work. Just be sure to add a little bit in small amounts to make sure you get the right consistency at the end.


  1. […] I also decided to make lavender sugar scrub (and even kept some for myself.) The only ingredients were white granulated sugar, raw sugar, coconut oil, dry lavender, and lavender essential oil. It was so easy to make and it feels great to use in the shower. If you are interested, check out the directions here. […]
