Believe it or not, the best homemade body scrub is quick and easy to make. Plus, it’s as pretty and effective as anything at the store!
The Best Homemade Body Scrub: DIY Unicorn Body Scrub
If you’re excited for sweater weather not because you love fall but because you’re glad to finally be able to cover up your dry, rough skin, I’ve got just the recipe for you: The best homemade body scrub ever! There’s a lot of reasons that I refer to this natural homemade body scrub as “the best homemade body scrub,” but the number one reason is it’s effective. It’s full of good for your skin ingredients including coconut oil, lavender essential oil, and rosewater.
As you probably know from some of my other homemade bath and beauty products (like these coconut oil sugar scrub bars), coconut oil is a natural moisturizer. The sugar in this homemade sugar body scrub exfoliates, removing dead skin and other debris that can make your skin appear rough and even cause breakouts. Once the sugar has done its job the coconut oil adds moisture. The lavender essential oil in this natural homemade body scrub can help with inflammation, redness, and itchiness. The rosewater can also help with skin issues including eczema and acne.
Side note: If your skin is really irritated, consider trying this oatmeal body scrub and if you’re struggling with acne try this grapefruit scrub.
Starting to see why I think this is the best homemade body scrub? Wait there’s more….
At my house, bathroom storage space is at a premium, so I love products that are pretty enough to leave sitting out in plain view. That’s another reason that this is the best homemade body scrub ever! It’s pretty colors come through even when this homemade sugar body scrub is displayed in a regular old Mason jar.
Another pretty DIY bath product I don’t mind leaving on the counter with this homemade sugar body scrub is this brightly colored raspberry lip scrub.
While I’ve opted to make this natural homemade body scrub in pink and gold, you can use any mica powder colorants you desire. For example, if you’re going to be giving the best homemade body scrub as a gift (which I highly recommend), you could opt for holiday specific colors or colors the gift receiver really likes.
Tip: If you’re looking for an option that has a more “manly” scent, check out this mojito body scrub.
In addition to being effective and pretty, this is the best homemade body scrub because it’s inexpensive, quick, and easy to make. You only need 6 ingredients and about as many minutes to make a batch of this natural homemade body scrub! 🙂
Note: If you opt to turn this into a homemade organic body scrub it will cost a little more.

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.
