Homemade summer body scrub ideas

A Javatastic Coffee Scrub

If you are looking for the ultimate energising scrub to pick you up then this is the one for you!

Whilst coffee is thought to reduce the appearance of cellulite, the coconut oil in this scrub will leave you feeling beautiful moisturized.

Here are the ingredients that you need:

  • 1 cup of coconut oil
  • ½ cup of sugar
  • 1/3 cup of fresh coffee grounds
  • 2 to 3 tbsp olive oil

All you need to do is combine them all together and you will have a fantastic scrub for your entire body!

Oh so yummy chocolate scrub

If there is one weakness for us all then it has to be chocolate. So what if we told you that you could smear yourself in this sweet treat and help your skin to boot?

Again featuring our friend coconut oil. The sugar in this scrub removes the dead skin and the cocoa powder makes sure that you smell good enough to eat for the entire day.

To make it all you need to do is mix these ingredients together in one bowl.

  • 1 cup coconut oil
  • ½ cup Brown Sugar
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder

Ultra Zingy Green Tea scrub

Now it wouldn’t be a PureChimp recipe collection without Green tea featuring somewhere in the mix.

For the ultimate in boosting skin treatment why not combine the energising power of citrus with the antioxidant prowess of green tea?

Whilst this one does boast a few more ingredients than the others it is still a simple case of mixing together and lathering all over yourself. You will need:

  • 3 cups of Epsom salts
  • 3 tbsp baking soda
  • 4 tbsp of oil (grapeseed, sweet almond, jojoba or apricot kernel oil all work well)
  • 1 tbsp of Matcha powder
  • 8 drops of lime essential oil
  • 8 drops of orange essential oil
  • Zest from oranges, lemons or limes (the choice is yours)


The majority of these recipes make far more scrub then you will need so make sure you have somewhere to store the leftovers that is air tight, that way you can choose to re-use them another day!

So if you don’t have time to hit the spa before the sunshine arrives why not grab the ingredients and see what you can create? Your beautifully smooth skin will soon be thanking you!
