Recipe: homemade rose face and body scrubs

Happy Sunday everyone.

Now that spring has sprung and a few more layers are coming off, it’s time to get a proper scrub on.

Yesterday afternoon I decided to whip up one of my favourite recipes, and it’s not one you eat. For years I’ve been making my own homemade scrubs and not only are they divine and work really well, they are easy peasy to make.

And you can find all the ingredients in your kitchen.

Rose face scrub

What you’ll need:

  • Baking soda
  • coconut oil
  • water
  • rose essential oil (or substitute for a favourite)

In a bowl add in a 2-3 heaped tablespoons of baking soda. Add in some softened or melted coconut oil, I used about 2 tablespoons worth. Add a few drops of essential oil and mix well. Add water until the consistency is firm and not too runny.

Rose facial scrub

Place the scrub into a container of choice. Depending on your skin type and sensitivity, use this great scrub 2-3 times a week.

Rose and sugar body scrub

What you’ll need:

  • Baking soda
  • coconut oil
  • caster sugar
  • rose essential oil (or substitute or a favourite)

In a bowl add 4 heaped tablespoons of baking soda. Add in a cup of caster sugar (you could use normal granulated sugar or even sea salt but I personally like my body scrub to be finer) and stir the dry ingredients together well. Add in some softened or melted coconut oil, I used about 3 tablespoons worth. Add a few drops of essential oil and for a bit of fun, I added in few drops of red food colouring. Add water until the consistency is firm and not too runny.

Rose and sugar body scrub

Place the scrub into a container of choice. I reused a pretty glass candle holder with a steel lid.

These two scrubs only took 5 minutes to make. You can easily substitute ingredients such as using olive oil and experiment with different sugar and salt combinations. They also make great gifts. Love good ol’ baking soda too.

Scrubs all prettied up

What homemade skincare recipes do you make? Would love to know.
