Dreaming of a tropical vacation complete with white sand beaches and coconut cups with colorful paper umbrellas? Who isn’t! 🙂 If a getaway, even one of the weekend variety, simply isn’t in the cards or you need an escape right now, you’ve come to the right place. Allow me to introduce you to the best homemade body scrub.
I know, I know, this may be the best homemade body scrub around (and it is) but it isn’t actually a vacation. I get it. However, this mojito body scrub is a fantastic way to pamper yourself without breaking your budget. Trust me, once you try this you’ll see why I’ve labeled it the best homemade body scrub. The scent will wash away your worries and you’ll emerge refreshed and ready to conquer new challenges. Just ignore that certain someone pounding on the bathroom door asking what’s for dinner or where his favorite stuffed animal is, and you’ll never know you aren’t in a high-end spa.
So, other than smelling amazing, why is this the best homemade body scrub? I’m glad you asked. Let’s see… there are so many reasons I’m not even sure where to start.
Well, for one, this is the best homemade body scrub because it’s chemical free. Yep, you’ll get silky smooth skin without worrying about what you’re exposing your body to which is a big plus to me.
In addition, I think this is the best homemade body scrub because it’s very inexpensive to make. You need 5 ingredients to make this spa-worthy treatment, so you know it won’t blow your budget to smithereens.
Tip: Save even more money on this mojito body scrub by using an airtight container you have at home. Sure, I like to use Mason jars, but you could easily use any airtight container.
Another thing that makes this the best homemade body scrub around is the recipe’s simplicity. You can barely consider this a recipe as there are only two steps and one of those steps is putting the mixture in a container. DIY bath and body recipes don’t get any easier than that.
Hopefully those are enough reasons to get you to give this mojito body scrub a try. Trust me, you’re going to love it. Once you decide this really is the best homemade body scrub, be sure to share the love by making some to give to your friends and family.
Tip: While this mojito body scrub may be the best homemade body scrub I’ve found, it certainly has some stiff competition. Here are some other homemade body scrubs I love to whip up when I need a little pampering (or an awesome homemade gift):
- Oatmeal body scrub – This recipe is perfect for the winter time when you have dry/itchy skin.
- Vanilla almond body scrub
- Lavender body scrub – Need to unwind? The lavender in this body scrub is great for relaxing before bed.
- Coconut oil body scrub bars
- Grapefruit face scrub – This DIY beauty recipe is tough enough to fight off acne but gentle enough to be used on your face.
- Raspberry lip scrub

Do you like to use homemade beauty products and homemade cleaners? I love the ability to make products to use in my home that are all natural and safe which is why I am a big fan of essential oils. Young Living essential oils are my favorite oils because they are some of the best essential oils on the market. I also appreciate that Young Living guarantees no pesticides or herbicides were used in the growing of their oils, and that they are the only company that has their own farms, so they can ensure the quality of their oils.
