Now that it’s summer time, the kids have been out of school for a while. I have two daughters and they have been out of school for the summer since the beginning of June. That means I have the whole summer to enjoy having them home. Sometimes that gets a bit crazy around here and you know how kids are, they don’t always get along.

Sometimes I need some me time to just sit back and relax. This is why I love to make my own sugar scrubs. These products are always great for my skin and they feel very relaxing. If you love body scrubs, then this would be a great DIY project for you as well. I love being able to make my own beauty products. You can bring this body scrub in to the shower with you to help wash away all the dead skin you may have. Get ready for some nice relaxation with this DIY body scrub.

What you’re going to need:

  • 15 Drops Grapefruit Nature’s Bounty® Earthly Elements™ Essential Oil

  • Jar with Lid
  • Ziploc Bag (Optional)

How you make it:

Start by putting the sugar in a bowl.

Then you want to put the sweet almond oil in with the sugar.

After that you’re going to want to mix it all up and add in the drops of essential oils. If you want it to be less of a peppermint scent, you can always add less peppermint oil too. You can always keep adding more drops of the essential oils if you want to make it stronger too. I used a lot of drops to get mine to have a stronger scent. Feel free to add less if you don’t want it as strong.

Next I put the sugar scrub in a Ziploc bag and put the one drop of food coloring in it. I put it in a Ziploc bag so that it doesn’t get the food coloring all over my dishes. It’s up to you whether you want it in a bag or not. I think it mixes better in a Ziploc bag too. After adding the food coloring, just zip up the bag and start moving it around to get to the right color. Of course you can add any colors you want, but I wanted one that looked more like a peppermint/grapefruit scent.

Then you can just start scooping your sugar scrub in to the jar. That’s all there is to it! It’s a very simple DIY Sugar Scrub and it is very relaxing for the skin. It makes you smell great too! I love being able to use this product in the shower. It’s great to use instead of soap. I think it makes my skin feel very soft and it smells amazing as well. I’ve always loved the feel of sugar scrubs when you rub it on your skin.

The Nature’s Bounty® Earthly Elements™ products are available at Walmart. You can pick up your own today and start making this DIY Sugar Scrub! There are many great uses for these essential oils. They have a lot of different scents as well. Each of them are usually meant for something different, like uplifting, calming, relaxing and more.

How many of you have used Nature’s Bounty® Earthly Elements™ essential oils before? I’d love to hear about some of the DIY products you have come up with too!

  1. This seems really easy to make, I might give it a try! I’ll have to keep an eye out for Nature’s Bounty Earthly Elements next time I’m shopping at Walmart!

  2. I bet this sugar scrub smells good. I startesd making my own sugar scrub a year ago. I use coconut oil as the base and it has helped reduce my acne.

    • I’m honestly not sure if there is anything else. You don’t have to use food coloring at all either. If I happen to think of something I’ll let you know. I’m sure there is another way.

  3. I always love homemade sugar scrubs anytime as they are very natural and cost effective too. I love anything that involves Peppermint essential oil & the combo of Grapefruit sounds really an amazing one to try out.

  4. I have been using Nature’s Bounty® Earthly Elements™ essential oils and my favorite scent is lavender. I haven’t tried making sugar scrub. Can’t wait to try it.

  5. I need to try making this! This is so cool, I love the idea of DIY beauty products! It looks like it’d be super fun to make too! Thanks for sharing this!

  6. Peppermint is one of my favorite scent and scrub products is my favorite. I always applying using scrub product especially if its made in organic ingredients.

    Thanks for sharing this diy scrub. I will do it later. Hehe because of this i never need to buy a naturals/organic body scrub from now on i can made it on my own because of this guide. Thank you so much :).
