This luxury rose sugar scrub is not your regular DIY skin exfoliant.
I made it with dried rose petals, white sugar, coconut oil, and a few drops of essential oil.
Because it was processed in the blender, the rose sugar exfoliant is less coarse than other sugar scrubs.
So if you are normally worried about large sugar granules in your scrub, I bet this would be a game-changer for you.
And as usual, I exfoliated my skin with the rose sugar scrub before writing this post to give you an honest review.
And here’s what we’ll cover:
- How to make a rose sugar scrub,
- How to use it,
- My experience with it, and of course,
- A free recipe for you to print out.
Let’s get started.
How to make rose sugar scrub
Tools you need
Food processor or blender
You need a blender or food processor to grind the rose petals and sugar into smaller particles which helps the ingredients bind better.
Also, processing the ingredients gave this rose sugar scrub its pretty pink color.
One more thing, if you don’t process the petals, you’d have them falling all over the place when scrubbing your skin. Let’s say you’d be exfoliating with a sugar scrub garnished with petals.
So to get the utmost benefit of this rose sugar scrub recipe, make sure to blend the ingredients.
Of course, you need a mason jar with an air-tight lid to store your finished product. This scrub will keep fine on the countertop or refrigerator.
A spatula and a spoon
The spatula is what you’d use to scrape the sides of the blender when making this DIY sugar exfoliant.
It would also help you completely get the rose scrub out of the blender when you are done.
And the spoon is what you’d use to scoop your finished scrub into the mason jar.
Ingredients for the rose scrub
Rose petals are known to hydrate and soothe the skin when topically applied.
And since this scrub is grainy, I believe blending the petals is an excellent way to get more benefits.
I used regular coconut oil, and the essential oil fragrance covered it completely. But you can use fragrance-free coconut oil, then add the essential oil for fragrance.
Some sugar scrub recipes call for brown sugar, but this one is better with white sugar.
If not, how would you get the beautiful rose-pink scrub?
Rose essential oil
The rose essential oil has hydrating and acne-fighting properties.
So it just takes this scrub to another level.
If you are wary of essential oils, use as few drops as possible to add a mild fragrance to your rose sugar scrub.
Rose sugar scrub recipe

Cleaning up after
Add some dish soap and warm water into your blender (the water will turn blue), and blend it a couple of times.
It is so much fun.
My daughter enjoys blending and watching as the bubbles populate the blender.
The warm water and soap lift the oil off your blender fast.
Pour out the soapy water, then rinse with clean water.
Voila! Cleaning is done.
How to use your rose sugar scrub
- Use a dry spoon and scoop the rose sugar scrub into another container.
- You don’t want water getting in your scrub to prevent contamination.
- So after a shower, make sure your skin is damp, not wet, before applying the scrub.
- Next, exfoliate your body in gentle circular motions. Your bathtub would be messy and a little slippery. Please be careful.
- After a few minutes, rinse your body under the shower.
- You can pat your skin or let it dry on its own before using a light moisturizer.
- Your skin would feel pampered and refreshed.
- Get dressed and go about your business.
My experience using it
I don’t recommend using oily scrubs during summer.
But this scrub is not as oily on the skin because it contains only 1/8 cup coconut oil.
While using the luxury rose scrub on my skin, I noticed it was easy to manage.
It spreads with ease, thanks to the tiny granules.
So skin exfoliation was easy and interesting.
And it left my skin feeling smooth, soft, and mildly scented.
Also, this scrub is messy.
The rose petals stick to your bathtub, so remember to wash your tub afterward.
Overall, the rose body scrub is an excellent moisturizing homemade scrub.
After exfoliation, I moisturized with a light lotion.
And my skin looked and felt even better the next day.
