How to make DIY grapefruit sugar scrub

Though this is a grapefruit body scrub recipe, we don’t have to use grapefruit juice.

The thing about using the juice is that the scrub can become rancid the next day.

Also, the grapefruit zest fragrance and color are enough to give your scrub a natural citrusy scent.

But if you want to add some grapefruit juice, try it, and let me know how it turned out.

So here’s what you need to make a grapefruit sugar scrub for body exfoliation:

Ingredients

Grapefruit Body Scrub Recipe
  • 1 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup of melted coconut oil
  • Zest from one grapefruit
  • 10-12 drops of grapefruit essential oil (optional)
  • Ten drops of peppermint essential oil (optional)

How to store your grapefruit sugar scrub

Grapefruit Body Scrub Recipe

This scrub contains no water, so it can stay on your kitchen countertop or fridge.

But it’s best to store it in the fridge.

However, the grapefruit zest will turn brown after a couple of days.

And the scrub won’t be as fresh as when you first made it.

So, it’s best to make and use up the grapefruit scrub the same day.

Then, you can make another batch the next time you feel like using a grapefruit sugar scrub.
