Coconut Lime Raw Sugar Scrub

I know that homemade scrubs are popular right now and while I am sort of jumping on the bandwagon, I’ve actually been creating this scrub for YEARS…long before blogs existed.  Seriously.  However, my version is different then any other version I’ve seen out there.  And it smells delicious too!  So you will definitely want to stick around for this recipe: Coconut Lime Raw Sugar Scrub!  

This sugar scrub is homemade from 3 simple ingredients.  It is all natural and creates a wonderfully amazing exfoliating scrub for your hands, body or feet!  You will love this!

The key to this scrub is in the sugar.  I have tried scrubs using granulated and brown sugar and they are nice, but using Raw Sugar definitely gives you a deeper exfoliating scrub.

So what is Raw (aka Turbinado) Sugar!?  Turbinado sugar is less-processed and less-refined then other sugars.  It is sugar derived from natural sugar cane, it is brown in color and has larger crystals then granulated or brown sugar.

Where to buy this?  At your local grocery store.  Seriously.  Look down your baking aisle right next to your granulated, brown and artificial sugars.  This is not expensive and has a ton of great uses!  Or you can always purchase it from HERE.

Doesn’t it just look delicious!?

Coconut Oil is also available at most local grocery stores or it is available for purchase HERE.

To make your scrub you will simply mix the above ingredients by spoon or hand.

If your coconut oil is in a solid state, you can carefully soften it by placing it in the microwave for about 1 minute.

I juiced a fresh lime for my scrub!  Yum!  I love citrus scents and lime is one of my all-time favorite!

This is so yummy smelling you could almost eat it.  Well, you could, it is technically all food…but I prefer to scrub my hands with it!

    Dawn,<br /><br />You are welcome!<br /><br />It can just be stored at room temperature. All three ingredients are fine at room temperature. And the coconut oil actually goes solid if it gets too cold so room temperature is best. <br /><br />I am not totally sure how long this keeps for…I never have it around long enough to go bad…but I imagine it will be just fine for MONTHS!<br /><br />

    For some extra moisturizing, I take one or two Vitamin E capsules, cut them open, and squeeze all their goodness into my scrubs. Just an idea to try for those with super dry skin. I&#39;ve never done coconut and lime and will definitely try this one!

    This is perfect! I am in charge of crafts for our moms group and love this idea! I added a little bit of the pink dish soap that&#39;s also moisturizing so it leaves a little bit less of an oily feel and can clean grime off too. I repinned this to share with everyone ;)

    I am really looking forward to trying this as a favor for a baby shower I&#39;m throwing! Quick question… how much does the recipe above make? I&#39;m having about 15 people and the glass jars I purchased are 8oz jars… just trying to figure out how much sugar I&#39;ll need to buy. Thanks for the recipe!

    This sounds great!! Question ….. If I were to make a grapefruit or lemon fragranced scrub, what oil would I use as I don’t think I’d use coconut??

    • Ashley Phipps says

      You can use nearly any good quality oil you want Tammie! But I agree that coconut oil might overpower lemon or grapefruit scent. I would suggest using grapeseed oil instead. I have used that before with great success and it has much more mild of a fragrance!

    • Ashley Phipps says

      Great question. Yes this will eventually go bad. I imagine it will keep for about a month or so before it starts to go bad. But I have never had any around that long to know!
