Organic Grapefruit Body Scrub

I made homemade citrus body scrubs to give this Christmas.  This was my first attempt at making my own body scrub, and I love how it turned out.


The Recipe:

Organic Grapefruit Body Scrub

3 cups Organic Turbinado Raw Cane Sugar
3/4 cup Organic Sunflower Oil
2 tbsp Organic Coconut Oil 
2 tbsp Organic Aloe Vera Gel
40 drops Organic Grapefruit Essential Oil*
10 drops Organic Sweet Orange Essential Oil*
*It took more essential oil than I expected to get the desired scent. Next time, I may try a tablespoon or two of grapefruit in lieu of about half of the drops of essential oils

Mountain Rose Herbs is my go to source for organic essential oils.

Blend all ingredients thoroughly.  I used a food processor to blend mine.

The Packaging:

4-Oz Jars -- The recipe above makes enough to fill all five jars plus little bit left over for you to sample.
Avery Print -To-The-Edge Round Labels, Glossy White (22830) 
  • These labels are the perfect fit for the jars above.

The End Result:

I couldn't be more pleased with these homemade gifts.  In fact, I wish I had ordered more of the 4 Ounce Eco Jars.  I think these not only make great Christmas presents, but would be great to keep on hand year-round for whenever you need a little thank you gift, hostess gift, etc. 


  1. That sound amazing. This year I decided to do home made presents for our family, we wanted to make Christmas more personal and thoughtful, which is has proven to be. But it is oh so much more work.

  4. These look wonderful! I can’t wait to make some. I will definitely use the recipe for this year's Christmas gift and will be using Infinity Jars for packaging. They are great for keeping everything fresh for a long time and makes a premium gift.
