I am huge fan of DIY beauty products because they save money and I love the sense of accomplishment when I make something myself. My latest creation was Homemade Love Spell Sugar Scrub. If you are a fan of the Love Spell from Victoria’s Secret you are going to love this!
Love Spell is one of those invigorating scents which is no wonder why so many women (and men) love this scent. I personally love the mist but started thinking of other products that scent would be great for so I can up with this sugar scrub.
In my Peppermint Sugar Scrub post I mentioned many of the benefits of sugar scrub. To briefly reiterate that, sugar has natural properties that moisturize your skin and prevent it from drying. When used correctly, it can also be a great exfoliate to polish your skin and get rid of any dead skin cells. With that being said, this is a great way to moisturize your skin during these cold winter months.

Homemade Love Spell Sugar Scrub
What You Will Need:
- 3 cups of Granulated White Sugar
- Red Food Coloring
- Blue Food Coloring
- 1 Cup Organic Coconut Oil
- Love Spell Fragrance Oil (it needs to be skin safe)
- Melt 1 cup of coconut oil in a microwave safe bowl in the microwave. It’s best to heat for 30 seconds, stir and repeat until it is all the way melted.
- Measure out 1 cup of sugar and slowly pour into the warm coconut oil. You want to make sure the sugar is blending well with the coconut oil. If the oil starts to get hard just heat it up in the microwave again.
- Continue to slowly add the sugar until you reach a nice grainy consistency (aim for the consistency of brown sugar).
- Add the 4 drops of red food coloring and 4 drops of blue food coloring to achieve a dark purple. Keep in mind because the coconut oil has a bit of a yellow tint to it, it will make your sugar scrub look a little grey. I used However, as the mixture sets the color will lighten over time.
- Add 3-5 drops of the Love Spell fragrance oil. Again the scent will lighten over time so if you plan on storing it for awhile you can add a few extra drops. (If adding the food coloring and essential/fragrance oil makes the mixture watery, you can add more sugar to make it thicker.)
It’s that simple! You can use it immediately or place it into a pretty jar and gift it. I used a tin that contained chocolates in it at one time. It makes a great gift for Valentine’s Day!
