  • 3 cups sugar like turbinado for a course scrub and brown sugar for a milder scrub, or a mix of both
  • 3/4 cup coconut oil in liquid form
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons cocoa butter melted
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons ginger
  • 1 tablespoons nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoons ground cloves
  • 1 tablespoons allspice


  1. Melt coconut oil and cocoa butter into liquid form. I used the microwave.
  2. Add all ingredients into a bowl and mix to incorporate. Store in plastic or glass jars. Use on body 1-2 times a week for deep exfoliation.

Recipe Notes

You can also use all coconut oil but the cocoa butter is very moisturizing and keeps the scrub together well. Make sure the coconut oil and cocoa butter are melted before assembling and be careful because they may get hot.
