DIY Lavender Coconut Sugar Scrub Bars

Making DIY body products at home is so much fun. Here is an easy project to get you started! These DIY Coconut Lavender Sugar Scrub Bars use shea butter melt and pour soap as their base. Perfect for exfoliating in the shower, or to use on feet and hands before a pedicure or manicure! Super simple to make and a fabulous handmade gift idea!

Making body products at home is one of my favorite things to do. I love that I know exactly what ingredients are going into my products, I love customizing them with my favorite scents, and I adore having extras to give away as handmade gifts. 

I recently taught a class for tween and teenage girls on how to make homemade body products. In the class we made peach lip balm and cotton candy sugar scrub. The room that we were in smelled so good by the time our class was done. 

One area of handmade body product making that I haven’t tackled yet is soap making. I’ll confess, making soap 100% from scratch scares me a little bit, but I’m fairly certain that it’s a project that I will tackle one day soon. In the meantime, I was recently gifted some shea butter melt and pour soap base and I’m having a lot of fun experimenting with it. 

My most recent creation combines silky soft shea butter soap with my favorite exfoliater– Sugar scrub! Use this soap in the shower to moisturize and exfoliate at once, or on your hands and feet before a manicure and pedicure for ultra soft skin! 

Coconut is one of my favorite scents and I think it’s perfect for summer. I scented this with coconut, but you could use whatever scent you love. One of my favorite teas has lavender and coconut in it, so I also added lavender buds to the mix. Not only does it smell heavenly, it also adds to the exfoliating power! 

Best of all, these are super easy to make and a great way to enter the world of DIY body products!

Read on for my instructions on how to make DIY Lavender Coconut Sugar Scrub Bars.

Step 1: Over medium low heat melt your shea butter melt and pour soap base. Add the coconut oil and stir until everything is melted. Remove from heat and add your fragrance oil 10 drops at a time until it reaches your desired fragrance level. If your base starts to solidify during this process, but it back on the stove to melt down again.
