Recently I bought a cheap store-brand facial scrub and thought it would be maybe not great but decent. Turns out it was pretty terrible. All of the little beads were missing, meaning I pretty much just purchased a run-of-the-mill face wash. Not cool! So I decided to whip up my own homemade facial scrub. In this article, I will show you how I did it so that you can make your own facial scrub too.

Things You’ll Need:
- Container For Mixing
- Container For Storage
- Coconut Oil
- Essential Oil (I recommend lemon, tea tree, or cypress)
Step One: A homemade facial scrub is fairly simple to whip up. First, grab a bowl that you can use to mix your ingredients in. You’ll also need a spoon for mixing with, so get this too.
Pour in 1 cup of salt, 1/2 cup of melted coconut oil, and a few drops of your essential oil. Mix this together.
Step Two: You know your scrub is the right consistency when it looks a little bit like oatmeal when it is all mixed together. Feel it with your fingers. If it feels like a nice scrub should (slightly wet and grainy) you’re good to go! If it’s not mixing well or looks too dry, add just a little bit of oil at a time until it is the right consistency. It should look like this:
Grab the container that you want to store your scrub in, and then gently pour it or spoon it in. I used a lovely glass jar.
And that is all there is to it! I added in cypress oil, which is great for acne-prone skin. It also gives the scrub a lovely and fresh scent. It doesn’t appeal to everyone, however, so play around with the oils you like. Tea tree and lemon are my second choices, as they are also good to use in skincare products.
