7 Rejuvenating DIY Body Bath Scrubs

Typically, every scrub has an exfoliating agent. This agent helps you in getting rid of flakiness and makes way for soft and supple skin.

You can easily create such scrubs in the convenience of your homes as the ingredients are readily available in your own kitchen. Besides, you spend much less money than you do on buying them off the shelf. The primary ingredients like chocolate, banana, apricot etc., moisturise your skin to regain its lost vitality. The best part is that it takes no time to prepare them and can be used immediately! Check out some really cool and useful homemade body scrubs below.

1. Chocolate Coconut Scrub

You will need:

  • 2 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup almond oil
  • Coconut extract or essential oil

Mix all the ingredients until you see coconut oil chumps in the bowl. For it to be visually appealing if you plan to sell it, add a few chocolate chips. You might be tempted to eat it, but watch out and use it where it must be. Delight your tummy with a brownie afterwards!

2. Mediterranean Olive Oil Scrub

You will need:

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup sea salt
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • A few drops of an essential oil of your choice

Blend the ingredients in a bowl and rub it on your skin while taking a shower. Brown sugar will exfoliate and remove dead skin cells. Unlike other scrubs, you will not need to moisturise after the bath because olive oil moisturises your skin and makes it dewy soft.

3. Green Tea Sugar Scrub

You will need:

  • 2 tea bags of green tea
  • 4-6 teaspoon olive oil
  • Sugar

Grab two tea bags of green tea and add to it a non-abrasive exfoliator, i.e. sugar! Begin by adding four teaspoons of olive oil to it, but if you think it is too dry then add two to three more teaspoons to it to form a paste. Green tea will remove dirt from your pores, sugar will take care of the dead skin and olive oil will moisturise your dry skin.

4. Cinnamon Vanilla Scrub

You will need:

  • 2-3 drops of cinnamon essential oil
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup raw cane sugar
  • Approx. 1/4 cup almond/coconut/olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Mix the cinnamon, vanilla extract, sugars and essential oils. Then slowly add the oil base while constantly mixing the ingredients. It is your choice to add whatever amount of oil you want; depends on what texture and consistency you are satisfied with and how oily you want your scrub to be.

5. Lavender Coconut Body Scrub

You will need:

  • 1 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup granular sugar and raw sugar
  • Dried lavender or lavender oil

Add the three ingredients in a bowl and mix them well with a spatula until they blend well with each other, and voila! You have your lavender coconut body scrub ready to help you regain a silky, smooth skin. Coconut oil will soften your dry skin, sugar will exfoliate and lavender will soothe your dry skin.

You will need:

  • 1/2  cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • Finely ground whole oats

Mix the three sugars in a bowl first and then add oats to it. Blend them well and add a quarter cup of natural honey. After that, you can add three-fourth cup of organic safflower, grapeseed or sunflower oil. For fragrance, add an essential oil of your choice like lavender oil, but not more than a quarter teaspoon.

7. Banana Scrub
