Natural Sunshine Body Scrub

Saturday, we had a glimpse of glorious spring! It was 71 degrees, sunny, and I spent the a good part of the day pulling weeds in the garden with my mother-in-law! If you would have told me 10  years ago that I would excited to pull weeds and garden I probably would have thought you were nutty! But give me some warm weather and sunshine and I’m your girl!

With the thought of spring in mind, I whipped up this super easy body scrub. This scrub includes nourishing ingredients like coconut and almond oils, plus the citrus helps reduce sun spots and makes this scrub smell delicious. Your hands will be feeling soft and moisturized!

I party here…


  1. I love this scrub. Grapefruit is definitely one of my favorite scents it is so energizing. I imagine you could also use grapefruit peel in the scrub instead of orange too. Pinning. (seen on Whimsy Wednesday).

    1. Catelyn: The article Clearly stated to use only the Orange PEEL… NOT the whole orange. I would imagine it is b/c if the fruit of the orange were to be used, it would lead to spoilage…whereas using the peel/skin, will not cause that to happen.

    2. I made this and after a month it turned bad and got very stinky. I love it but try to use it within a few weeks.

  2. My daughter is allergic to coconuts and coconut oil as well as tree nuts and their oils. Could we substitute olive oil, avocado oil, canola, flax or grapeseed oil instead?
