This homemade stretch mark scrub relies on raw sugar and shea butter, and I consider it one of the ways for how to get rid of stretch marks, or at least reduce the signs of stretch marks. It’s easy to make and can be used several times a week for best results.


  • ½ cup organic raw cane sugar
  • ¼ cup fractionated coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon raw shea butter
  • ½ teaspoon vitamin E oil
  • 5 drops lavender essential oil
  • 1 teaspoon organic lemon juice or 3 drops of lemon essential oil


  1. Mix all ingredients in a small bowl until well blended. For smoother results, place in a pan on very low heat, stirring until smooth.
  2. Place ingredients in a glass jar or container with a lid.
  3. Rub on affected areas two to three times per week, such as during a shower.


After showering and patting the area dry, apply a DIY stretch mark cream to give your skin the best chance to become blemish-free!
