Easy Homemade DIY Vanilla Orange Mint Sugar Scrub

A simple easy-to-make homemade vanilla orange mint sugar scrub that looks pretty, smells wonderful, and feels amazing. Perfect for the summer season.

When I think of the word “Hawaiian” several things come to mind: Pina coladas, bikinis, beaches, Hawaiian punch (weird, I know. I don’t even drink them), Hawaiian rolls (the most delicious things).

And candles! 

Now if you’re still with me after that train wreck of a thought process, I’m happy to bring you a simple DIY Vanilla Orange Mint Sugar Scrub.

I love to make this sugar scrub since it helps me pretend that I’m in a tranquil Hawaiian place.

Plus, it helps you get ready for your upcoming beach days as part of our little collaboration with Glade.

Now prepare yourself for silky smooth skin in all five minutes. This super simple recipe is inspired by all things Hawaiian.

That’s totally what all of the cool kids do to prep for summer right?

Sugar scrubs are an excellent way to exfoliate your skin, leaving it feeling soft and smooth.

They can also help to improve circulation and promote cell turnover, giving you a healthy glow.

Sugar scrubs are also great for treating specific skin concerns, such as dryness, acne, or sun damage.

How to Store Homemade Sugar Scrub

Once your sugar scrub is all mixed up, store it in an air-tight container in the shower or bathroom to have on hand.

The warmer the coconut oil gets, the runnier the texture will be so try to keep it at an even room temperature for the best texture!

How Long Does Homemade Sugar Scrub Keep?

Homemade sugar scrub will last up to 6 months.

Try to always keep the container lid on and water out of the scrub so that it can stay as fresh as possible.
