Rose Sugar Scrub Recipe – Luxury DIY Skin Exfoliant

5 Minutes

Last Updated on May 16, 2021 by

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 compared to 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 so that I can give you a 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 needFood 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 is what 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.

Mason jar

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 get the rose scrub out of the blender completely 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 scrubRose petals

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.

Coconut oil

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.

White sugar

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
  • A few pieces of rose petals. Maybe 1 oz.
  • 1 cup white sugar,
  • 1/8 cup coconut oil,
  • 6 to 8 drops of rose essential oil – use what you have.

  • Store it in the fridge or countertop until you are ready to use it.

Cleaning up after

Add some dish soap and warm water into your blender (the water would 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 lifts 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 amount of rose sugar scrub you need 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

Though I don’t recommend using oily scrubs during summer, this scrub is not as oily on the skin because it contains only 1/8 cup of coconut oil.

If you do not want more oil on your skin during Summer, move the rose sugar scrub to your Spring/Fall/Winter skincare routine.

While using the rose sugar 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. It left my skin feeling smooth, soft, and mildly scented.

Another thing I observed was how messy this scrub gets. The rose petals stick to the bathtub, so remember to wash your tub afterward.

Overall, the rose sugar scrub is an excellent moisturizing homemade scrub.

I moisturized with a light lotion after exfoliation, and my skin looks and feels even better the next day.
