Homemade sugar scrubs have become my specialty. They are a great way to exfoliate your skin, and there are endless possibilities when it comes to adding things into sugar scrubs like scents and all that jazz. Just in time for the holiday season, I created one of my favorite sugar scrubs yet – Christmas Cookie Sugar Scrub. This exfoliating scrub smells good enough to eat, (tough of course, you should not!) with it’s rich aroma of freshly bakes sugar cookies. As an Amazon Associate, I earn from qualifying purchases.

When making our diy bath and beauty products, we like to use Rocky Mountain Oils, because they have such a great selection of single oils as well as essential oil blends. We also love this mica powder for any of our projects that require color, and this sweet almond oil anytime a carrier oil is called for in a recipe.
My sugar scrub recipes are quite popular, and I think that you may enjoy the Cucumber Mint Sugar Scrub and this Natural Sugar Scrub with Fresh Blueberries. If you’d like to dabble into soap making, you will be surprised at how easy it actually is when you use a melt and pour soap base. Try this simple recipe, as it is quite easy for beginners – homemade all natural lemon soap.
What is a sugar scrub good for?
Sugar scrubs help to exfoliate dead skin cells, and can help to make your skin feel smoother, and have that “glow”.
How do you make a sugar scrub?
The base for most sugar scrub recipes starts with sugar and a carrier oil, such as olive oil or coconut oil. Then you can get creative with additions like fragrance, dried flowers, zest from fruit, and so on.
Christmas Cookie Sugar Scrub
You will find the easy to follow recipe for this Christmas Cookie Sugar Scrub below. This would make a wonderful holiday gift for family, friends, neighbors, and even your child’s teacher. Simple double, triple, or quadruple this recipe, and fill 4 ounce mason jars with the mixture. Tie a holiday ribbon around the top of the jar to make it look pretty!
- 1 cup sugar
- ⅓ cup olive oil
- 1 tablespoon red, white and green holiday sprinkles
- 15 drops Sugar Cookies Fragrance Oil
- Mason jar or airtight container
Step 1. Combine sugar and olive oil in a small bowl.
Step 2. Add fragrance oil and stir well.
Step 3. Add sprinkles and stir until combined.
Store in an airtight container, like a small mason jar. This scrub will last about 2-3 months, but try not to get it wet, as it will not last as long then. I recommend using a small scoop or spoon to get the sugar scrub out of the container for each use.
