DIY Coconut, Mint & Lime Sugar Scrub

When you picture a beautiful sandy beach, the scents of mint, lime and coconut may come to mind. Everyone deserves to be able to experience that, even if you can’t physically be sitting on that beach. Self-care is so important for our health and wellness, and a sugar scrub is a great way to add to your shower routine.

This DIY Coconut, Mint & Lime Sugar Scrub is perfect to make for yourself or as a gift, with only four ingredients and takes less than five minutes to make. I love scrubbing my body and face with this mixture every two-three days, it makes your skin soft and smell amazing!

Sunday’s are my self-care day and I love sugar scrubs, but I absolutely hated how many ingredients were listed in the store bought scrubs(I can’t even pronounce some of them!!). Not to mention, I’ve got sensitive skin and allergic to lavender so I decided to try making my own. I couldn’t believe how simple it was, cheap and could find all the ingredients in my kitchen.

What you’ll need?

8 oz jar or water proof container
Bowl and Mixer


1/4 cup Coconut Oil
1 cup Sugar
1/2 tsp Peppermint Essential Oil
Zest from 1 Lime


  1. In a small bowl, mix coconut oil for about 1-2 minutes or until no more chunks
  2. Add your sugar, essential oil and zest and mix for another 1-2 minutes, until it’s all mixed
  3. Add mixture into a jar and it’s ready to be used.

Use this sugar scrub at the sink on your hands, in the shower on your body and face, after a foot soak – where ever you’d like. Hope you enjoy it as much I do!

Pin it for later!

    Looks so wonderful. I would use this to exfoliate my skin.

There are so many things I'm thankful for and one of those is the amount of nature areas Washington state has to offer. I'm so thankful we were able to get out and walk Nisqually Wildlife Perserve before the "Stay Home, stay healthy" order the Gov. placed. It was wonderful to get out one last time, this staying home is tough and I don't know how we're going to manage?!! #pnw #nature #optoutside #stayhome #momlife #sendwine

🌴On Saturday we took advantage of the sunshine and finally got out of the house! This will be a rough and trying time for our mental health, not going to lie. But we got to play at the local beach while practicing #socialdistancing it was wonderful! 🌻And we found a beautiful painted rock, thank you to who ever hid it!

Stop to smell the flowers! 
This is your daily reminder to get outside, get some fresh air and your daily dose of vitamin D!

What are you going to do with your child if homeschooling isn't cut out for them or your family? Take a deep breath, exhale and relax. It'll be okay! Everyone's health and wellness is much more important at this time than academics. I've got a list of activities if you'd like some structure in your lives though. Check it out on my blog.

Glad we were able to squeeze in one more trip out into the community and zoo before things start shutting down. Friday Piper and I made an impromptu visit to Pt defiance zoo! It was great minus the cold/rain; there was only a couple other people, animals were active, didnt need to touch anything. Now schools are out for 6 weeks and we plan on quarantining ourselves at home for most of that time, except to get out into nature.
