Brown sugar and orange body scrub is a simple recipe you can make at home with ingredients that you probably already have in your kitchen. Ideal for oily skin, brown sugar with rose oil has astringent properties that will help to remove excess oils. You can keep brown sugar and orange body scrub in the refrigerator for up to three weeks. The body scrub also makes a wonderful gift, especially when packaged with homemade body lotion or moisturizer.

Things You'll Need

Put the oatmeal, brown sugar, orange rind and orange flower water in a food processor. Grind until it becomes a smooth mixture, about 30 seconds. Transfer to a medium mixing bowl.

Add the orange essential oil and rose essential oil to the mixing bowl, and stir to combine with a wooden spoon or disposable stirrer. Cover with plastic wrap and let stand for one hour.

Transfer the mixture to a small wide-mouthed glass jar, and store in the refrigerator until needed.


  • To use, apply the body scrub in the bathtub or shower, massaging the skin in tight, gentle circles.
