Scrubs are so simple to make and great for beginner DIY-ers! I bet you have most, if not all, of the ingredients in your pantry right now. This Coconut & Lime Scrub recipe is so versatile, feel free to use whatever citrus fruit you have, substituting the lime for lemon, grapefruit, orange etc. I have made the move away from commercial gifts (where possible) and will often make a scrub like this, package it in a pretty jar, and gift it to someone I love.


Makes: 170 g Prep time: < 5 min.


• 125 g sugar
• 30 g coconut oil (the type that solidifies)
• 10 g coconut (desiccated)
• 1 lime – zest only (finely chopped and dehydrated)
• 10 drops of essential oils


My favourite essential oil in this recipe is lime, but don’t be limited by my suggestions. Use oils that fit your budget, or those that you already have in your collection. Read here for more information.


1. Add all ingredients to a bowl and mix until combined.
