DIY Herbal Body Scrub - Lavender Chamomile

I adore DIY self care products, but some days I don’t have the energy to make a full on spa kit. Lately this DIY herbal body scrub has been my go-to, simply because it’s so easy to make!

I particularly love using it on my hands, because it leaves them feeling so soft and hydrated. 

Is it the prettiest body scrub around? Definitely not. To be fair, I didn’t use any food coloring. But don’t be fooled! This body scrub smells amazing and gets the job done!

Chamomile and Lavender are two of my favorite herbs, but you can absolutely swap them out for different dried flowers. Calendula would probably be my next choice.

These would make great gifts. Homemade body scrubs are thoughtful, and they go easy on your wallet. You can also try mixing the dried lavender petals in without grinding them first. That’s what gave these the grey color.

1. Blend the dried chamomile and dried lavender until the flowers are a little more chopped up. They don’t need to be blended to a dust. 

2. Mix the sugar and coconut oil in a bowl. You can adjust the sugar and coconut oil ratios until you get the consistency you like.

3. Add the dried flowers, herbal infused oil, and essential oils and mix well.

4. Once mixed, store in an airtight container and enjoy!

Use your DIY herbal body scrub in the bath or shower to soften your skin and give it a little ‘glow’.

You don’t have to store these in the fridge, but you certainly can. As long as they’re stored in a dry, airtight container, these should last about three months.

  1. I make essential custom items! Rollers, scrubs, etc. keep a couple of your little lip containers clean them out and get peppermint essential oil and coconut oil (the solid kind) mix the coconut oil and a few drops of peppermint oil and and put that in the container. So super good for lips year around ♥️😍 you can also add a little white or brown sugar to that and make a lip scrub too 😊
