Rose Sugar Scrub Benefits

There are a number of benefits to using a rose sugar scrub. Benefits include the following:

  • The sugar in homemade body scrubs naturally exfoliates skin to remove dead skin cells and encourage cellular turnover.
  • Non-comedogenic carrier oils work to moisturize, hydrate and soften skin.
  • As sugar scrubs exfoliate skin, they can help to unclog pores. This in turn may help to prevent ingrown hairs.
  • The exfoliating action of homemade body scrubs helps to smooth and brighten skin, giving it an even texture.
  • A rose sugar scrub helps to relieve dry skin and can soothe eczema.
  • This simple sugar scrub also doubles as a natural lip scrub to smooth and exfoliate dry lips.
  • As this rose sugar scrub recipe is naturally scented with essential oils, you also enjoy the aromatherapy benefits of rose essential oil.

Rose Body Scrub Ingredients

These are the ingredients you need to make a homemade rose body scrub for glowing skin:

  • 2/3 Cup White granulated sugar: Sugar provides natural exfoliation for skin.
  • 1/4 Cup Carrier oil: You will mix the carriers oil with the sugar to create a simply sugar scrub. I used grapeseed oil for my rose body scrub. However, you can substitute it with a carrier oil of your choice.
  • 20-30 drops/ 1mL-1.5mL Essential oil: Rose absolute or a rose essential oil blend gives this body scrub a natural fragrance.
  • 1/4 teaspoon Rose mica powder: Mica powder is used to give this sugar scrub recipe without coconut oil a pink tint. This ingredient is optional.

DIY Sugar Scrub Tools:

You will need the following tools to make this DIY sugar scrub without coconut oil:

  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Large glass bowl
  • Utensils, such as a fork, whisk or spoon
  • Airtight container
  • Glass dropper or graduated transfer pipette

How to Make Rose Sugar Scrub with Essential Oils

Here is how to make a rose sugar scrub with essential oils:

  1. Measure out the sugar using a measuring cup, then place in a large glass bowl.
  2. Use a measuring spoon to measure out the mica powder, if using. Then add the mica to the granulated sugar.
  3. Mix the sugar and mica together until evenly combined, using a fork or whisk.
  4. Next, measure out the carrier oil with a measuring cup. Stir the oil into the sugar mixture.
  5. Now add the rose absolute or rose essential oil blend you chose for this recipe, using either a dropper or graduated transfer pipette. Mix well to combine.
  6. Spoon the rose sugar scrub into an airtight container of your choice, until ready for use.

To use a rose sugar scrub, remove desired amount from the container. Then massage the scrub onto damp or wet skin in the bath or shower after washing. Massage onto skin in a circular motion for 1-2 minutes, then rinse off. Pat dry.

If you have sensitive skin, I recommend using this rose sugar scrub 1-2 times per week. For normal skin, you can use this homemade body scrub 2-3 times per week for glowing skin. Alternately, this sugar scrub without coconut oil may be used 3-4 times per week if you have oily skin.

Store your rose body scrub in an airtight container when not in use, away from excess heat, for up to 6 months. I don’t recommend storing your homemade scrub in the shower.
