Remember when I told you I was going to be a grandmother? I can admit now that it took me a little while for it to sink in…but now that I’m used to the idea, I’m very excited. Yesterday my daughter and I hosted a baby shower for my daughter-in-law, so I’m here to share some of the details. It was a gender-neutral shower which isn’t so easy anymore! Almost everything is geared to either a boy or girl. We chose a gold and white theme which ended up being very pretty. Since I love sugar scrubs, I wanted to make something new as the favor. I decided to use fresh rosemary and when I was making the scrub, it smelled so good that I hated to cap the jars. Read on to learn more about this rosemary sugar scrub recipe.

Rosemary Sugar Scrub Recipe


  • 1 cup coconut oil
  • 4 cups white sugar
  • 30 drops (or more) of rosemary essential oil (click for my favorite brand)
  • 2 heaping tablespoons fresh chopped rosemary
    • The shelf life for this sugar scrub if fresh rosemary is used is just a few weeks. For longer lasting scrub, omit the rosemary.

  • To soften the coconut oil, I put the whole jar (remove the lid) in the microwave for about 30 seconds. It doesn’t completely dissolve but it’s soft enough to stir into the sugar.
  • Combine coconut oil and sugar in a large bowl.
  • Add the rosemary essential oil and the fresh rosemary.
  • Stir really well until it is all completely combined.

Homemade Sugar Scrub Packaging

I used 4 oz. mason jars and got 10 jars from this recipe. I made another half batch because I wanted one per guest plus a few extra.

DIY sugar scrup tip: I used a large scoop to fill the jars. It was super easy and quick.

DIY Sugar Scrub Tags

The next step was some sort of tag. I made these homemade sugar scrub tags and the plan was to tie them on to the jars. When I had them all cut out, I discovered they fit perfectly on the jar lid! I attached them with a piece of double-sided tape and finished the jars off with a white ribbon bow. I used white cardstock to print the tags. Make sure when you print that you choose the “full page” setting.
