DIY Body Scrub

  • Author: Dr. Josh Axe
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 4 applications 1x


My wife, Chelsea, and I love this scrub in which we include both sugar and salt! We use it a couple of times a week because it keeps our skin in tip-top shape.


  • 1/2 cup coarse sugar or date sugar
  • 1/4 cup sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons local honey
  • 1 teaspoon jojoba oil
  • 1/8 cup of shea butter
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 510 drops pure essential peppermint oil


  1. Get a small ceramic or glass bowl, a 1/4 measuring cup, measuring spoons, a regular spoon and an 8-ounce glass jar or larger.
  2. Place the sugar and sea salt into the bowl and blend well with a spoon.
  3. Next, add coconut oil, honey and shea butter. Blend well.
  4. Work in the jojoba oil.
  5. Once that is all well blended, add the drops of peppermint oil and blend one last time.
  6. Next, transfer to a small glass jar with a lid and label it. You can store it in the fridge to help preserve it.


  • To bring out that glowing skin, exfoliate the skin. While in the shower, simply apply a small amount with your fingertips or washcloth to the skin one section at a time. Gently massage in a circular motion, for about 10–15 seconds starting at the feet, then the hands, working towards the heart making sure to cover your entire body.
  • Rinse and pat dry or air dry so that you do not remove all of the moisturizing benefits.
  • Prep Time: 10 min
