DIY Coconut Oil Sugar Scrub Hearts – Valentine’s Day Gift Idea

With Valentine’s day just a few weeks away, I thought to share this heart-shaped DIY coconut oil sugar scrub with you.

This scrub is easy to make, friendly on the pocket, and a great handmade Valentine’s gift.

But let me point out quickly that the pink color you see is food coloring, and you can skip it.

It would not affect the quality or shape of your DIY coconut scrub.

And I added vanilla because my coconut oil is aroma-free.

Personally, I prefer coconut oil with a rich coconut aroma.

And you can use any cookie cutter of your choice.

So let’s make it.

How to make DIY coconut oil sugar scrub for Valentine’s

Ingredients

  • 2 cups of white sugar
  • 1/2 cup of coconut oil (I used aroma-free coconut oil because that’s what I have in my kitchen).
  • A few drops of red food coloring or red mica powder
  • Vanilla extract
  • Heart-shaped cookie-cutter

Yield – 6 heart-shaped coconut sugar scrub

You can use 1 cup of sugar to 1/4 cup of coconut oil for a smaller quantity.

  • Mix the sugar with the coconut oil in a bowl,
  • Add some red soap dye.
  • Add some vanilla or skip it (you can skip the vanilla if your coconut oil has a coconut aroma).
  • Mix everything until it is well combined. It would look like cookie dough (don’t eat it!)
  • Then place your cookie cutter(s) on a tray or casserole dish lined with parchment paper (so it doesn’t stick to the dish)
  • Put a spoonful of scrub into the cookie cutter and press down to fill every space.
  • Then, gently lift the cookie cutter.
  • Use the same method to make more until you have used up all the scrub
  • Then, store them in the refrigerator to harden (it shouldn’t take too long if you use thick coconut oil).
  • If you are giving these as gifts, use a flat bag or box. (To keep the shape intact.)
