Best homemade body scrub recipesHomemade body scrubs are extremely effective, can be as expensive as you want and you can customize them according to your taste and needs. Choose from the best homemade body scrub recipes detailed below and enjoy your own spa body exfoliating treatment in the comfort of your home!

Exfoliating is an absolute ‘must’ treatment before any further body treatment because it helps the absorption of body creams and body lotions and increases their effectiveness. Through exfoliation, the skin is thoroughly cleansed, revitalized and the feeling after is one of freshness and softness.

Homemade body scrubs exfoliate the skin and remove dead skin cells, moisturize and nourish the skin through the natural oils they contain, and relax or energize you depending on the type of aromatherapy essential oils they contain. The result is always a smooth, polished and glowing skin all over the body.


Although some body scrubs are especially formulated to hydrate the skin, you should know that using a moisturizing body scrub doesn’t replace but complements daily skin moisturizing with body creams, body butters or body lotions.

Like many other products for face and body, homemade body scrubs are formulated for different skin types – oily, dry, acne prone, sensitive or troubled skin. The more sensitive your skin is, the more delicate the body scrub that you use must be.

If your skin is affected by rashes, acne or sunburn, avoid using harsh body scrubs because in your case they can do more harm than good. Use a soft body scrub or a soft brush instead while bathing or showering.

Depending on your skin type and the body scrub recipe you choose, homemade body scrubs can be used daily, weekly or seasonally (e.g. warming body scrubs in winter, refreshing body scrubs during summer).
