DIY Sugar Scrub: Orange Zest

DIY Sugar Scrub: Orange Zest

By Courtney of Crunchy Beach Mama

There is nothing easier – or cheaper! – then making your own DIY sugar scrub. I’ve done it a few times now and let me tell you that this orange zest is my new favorite!

Let me show you how simple the recipe is and how beneficial it is for your body.

  • 1 C cane sugar
  • 1/2 C sweet almond oil
  • 1/4 C sea salt
  • 5 drops Orange Essential Oil
  • Orange zest from peel


Mix the sugar and salt first. Slowly combine the almond oil. Add your drops of essential oil and then grate your orange peel over bowl until you feel there is enough throughout. Mix all together and store in container of choice.

The orange smells awesome and the zest makes it look pretty! I have mine sitting on my kitchen sink right now to use throughout the day. Your skin turns so soft!


Why this DIY sugar scrub is good for you:

Almond oil – is one of the best oils for your skin. It is moisturizing and eliminates excessively dry skin to make everything smooth. Also you may find it soothes stress so you can massage in sore muscles.

Orange Essential Oil – is great for complexion – dull or oily, plus wrinkles and muscle soreness too. The scent is uplifting may help you relax.
