D.I.Y body scrub. {Very Easy}

The other day I had the urge to make my own body scrub, so I did – with a few basic ingredients I had at home.

I thought I would share the recipe with you all… 


  • Epsom salts (Some of its benefits are that it is great for relaxing the body & easing stress. It helps relieve muscle pain & cramps & also helps removes toxins from your body!)
  • Coconut oil (Very hydrating for skin – it has countless benefits!)
  • Essential oil (optional)
  • Rose petals (optional)

(Once again I am hopeless and did not measure out my ingredients, I kind of just eyeball everything until I reach my desired consistency, so I did some research and found these measurements are commonly used in similar recipes, or you can just experiment and add bit by bit until you get the consistency you love!) 

  1. Add 2 cups of coconut oil
  2. 1  cup of epsom salts
  3. Add essential oils to your liking. 
  4. Mix together.
  5. Add in rose petals if you wish. (I had some rose petals from my Valentines Day flowers so I chopped them up and added them through the scrub! They don’t really do anything in my opinion except make it look a bit pretty!)
  6. I actually blitzed my scrub through my stick blender for a few seconds just because I didn’t have time to stir it all together by hand – it still has a good coarse texture, but be careful if you use your stick blender that you don’t over do it because the salt could be broken down.
  7. Add to a jar or air tight container. 
  8. Pamper yourself!! 🙂
This recipe is great because you can make a ton of it and use them as gifts or even just make a new one for yourself every fortnight, that box of Epsom Salt is huge and lasts forever! 
I really loved this scrub and it totally surprised me how nice it made my skin feel! It was a totally random moment for me to make it & I am so glad I did. I have used it a few times since I made it and it makes my skin feel nice, I also found it helped clear up a few skin irritations I had. 
The salt exfoliates yours skin perfectly and the coconut oil leaves your skin feeling so incredibly soft and smooth.
You can use this just as a foot or hand scrub but I use it as an all over body scrub! 
So treat yourself, grab these super basic ingredients, throw it all in a bowl, mix together, pop it in the jar and treat yourself tonight!
