  • Large mixing bowl
  • Small mixing bowls
  • Spoon



  • To make the base of your sugar scrub, evenly combine the sugar, coconut oil and essential oils (optional). If you prfer a creamier texture, just mix in extra coconut oil.
  • To prep for the color mixing, seperate the sugar scrub base into small mixing bowls. (One for each color of your choice.)
  • Spoon in the gel food coloring and mix in the color with your hands. For the light colors, I just used a very modest amount of a color. And for the more vibrant ones, I used a generous amount of food coloring. You can also mix and match colors to get a certain shade you’re looking for.
  • Once you’ve made all the colors, spoon each color into a glass container. Firmly press the sugar for each color into place before moving onto the next one. I left mine sort of messy and uneven like sand art would usually be. And I love the way it turned out!


  • The amount of sugar and coconut oil you use depends on how many different colors you want your DIY Sand Art Sugar Scrub to have. If you want to use lots of colors, you may want to increase your measurements. The key is to use 3 parts sugar to 1 part coconut oil.
  • Store in an airtight container for up to a month.
