Sweet Heart Sugar Scrub Recipe


2 Cups of White Granulated Sugar

1 small box of Valentine’s Candy Hearts

¼ Cup Coconut Oil

½ tsp. Essential Oil or extract (Vanilla, Rose, etc.)


In a medium sized microwave bowl, heat coconut oil for 15-25 seconds or until softened, but not runny.

Add 2 cups of granulated sugar and mix well.

Add in ½ tsp. of essential oil or extract (optional)

Using a kitchen food processor, grind 1 box of candy hearts until chopped up.

Add ground hearts into the sugar scrub and mix.

Transfer the mixture into a jar.

Leave your jar of homemade sugar scrub near your shower, bath or sink! Use to exfoliate your skin before applying self-tanner, lotion or shaving!

The coconut in the sugar scrub helps reduce inflammation, keeps skin moisturized and hydrated! It also can help treat acne and dry skin! The sugar helps in getting rid of dead skin cells and providing your skin with a fresh, new surface!

Making this into a cute Valentine’s Day gift is easy! Add the Homemade Sweet Heart Sugar Scrub into an 8 or 12 oz. jar, wrap with a cute ribbon and add a Valentine’s Day card!
