Homemade tea tree coconut oil face scrub

By August 6, 2014 December 16th, 2016 DIY

I’m excited to introduce you to my favorite tea tree coconut oil face scrub. It’s made with three ingredients and serves as an exfoliator, moisturizer, and make-up remover, all-in-one!

Homemade Tea Tree Coconut Oil Face Scrub

I battled dry and sensitive my whole life.  Then, I started using a simple combo of coconut oil and sugar to exfoliate my face and my dry skin vanished.  I started making my own coconut oil sugar scrubs 10 months ago and have used them everyday since.  (Sometimes twice a day!)

When I was visiting my in-laws last month, I got a little cocky and used whatever soap was on-hand to wash my face.  I paid the price, and by the time I got home my skin was starting to breakout.

Instead of going back to my old routine of exfoliating with a basic sugar scrub, I kicked things up a notch and used tea tree essential oil to make an easy foaming face wash for the morning and a tea tree coconut oil face scrub for the shower.  Tea tree essential oil is a natural way to treat acne and it smells amazing!  (More info on WebMD here.)

To make my homemade coconut oil face scrub, I used organic, raw Skinny Coconut Oil.  I received a free sample from Skinny and Company and couldn’t wait to use such a high-end product on my face.  Skinny and Company say that their coconut oil is “the premium coconut oil on the market” and, as a coconut oil connoisseur, I agree!

Whether you use Skinny Coconut Oil to make the perfect smoothie or whip up a homemade face scrub, you are going to love this stuff!

I breakout easily. Will this make that worse?

Tea tree is good for breakouts.. I’m not sure if the coconut oil would counteract that

It shouldn’t. Break you out unless your allergic to coconut. Coconut oil is a carrion oil. It can be used for basically anything from food to face to hair its very versatile

How well/long does this store for? For example would this store well enough as a Christmas gift?

When you rinse it off, does the coconut oil clog the sink at all?

Looks great!! What kind of container do you use for it? I hear you can’t put EOs in plastic, but I’m afraid of glass in the shower.

You can use plastic except with oils/blends containing citrus

EOs should alwaysbe stored on glass containers. ?

Just tried this and the sugar dissolved almost immediately. Didn’t really “scrub” much. Is that normal. Will the sugar clog my pores? I was surprised how it dissolved, I was expecting to rinse it off… Thanks 🙂

Maybe try using sugar in the raw, which has larger crystals? I’ve made brown sugar scrubs, and it doesn’t dissolve much.
