Coconut…Lime….two of my favorite aromas come together to make the ultimate coconut lime body scrub!

I’ve been making a bunch of delicious sugar scrubs and body butters with my essential oils over the last few weeks. When I received my bottle of Lime Essential Oil I knew I had to make coconut lime body scrub. Lime and coconut have always been my favorite scents. I’m so happy to have a homemade non-toxic version of my favorite scrub!

I kept it simple and used high quality virgin coconut oil (find my favorite brands here) with organic sugar and lime essential oil. That’s it!

Coconut Lime Body Scrub



  1. Melt coconut oil over low heat until it’s completely liquid.
  2. Mix the melted coconut oil with sugar.
  3. Add 20 drops of lime essential oil and stir.
  4. Store scrub in an air tight container at room temperature.

How To Use

Use scrub to exfoliate your skin in the bath or shower. Rinse well.

Be cautious as the coconut oil may leave your tub slick!

    The trouble I have with oil based sugar/salt scrubs is that it just cannot be a good thing for the plumbing!!! Can anyone contradict me on this or is it a valid concern?????

      If you take a scoop of baking soda in the shower/bath tub with you, and wash the tub out when you’re done, then rinse the tub out with HOT water, it won’t harden in the pipes and you won’t break your neck trying to get out. If you want to make sure the pipes are cleaned out, you can dump 1/4-1/2 Cup of baking soda, then pour a cup of white vinegar in over that and let it sit about 15 minutes. Then rinse with hot tap water for about 60 seconds or so.

      Can this scrub be used as a face scrub

      • The Coconut Mama June 30, 2014, 12:52 pm

        I think salt and sugar are too abrasive for the face. I wouldn’t use it but you can try if you like.

    Simply because this article is generally imagined for guys, I’d personally advise
    to women to go and speak to my partner. The odds are,
    you beat a woman, the killer is her spouse or partner, domestic violence victims were
    doing alright for themselves before they met their abuser.
    I think she did something tristar best dui attorney san diego
    to provoke the abuse. It’s more likely to drink
    heavily than other women.

    I have Psoriasis so I use Scrub quite often, however I learned that using Salt have more texture then using Sugar and I also add about 2tbs of Apple Cidar Vinegar. The acid remove more death cells and skin looks more “shiny” … I use Coconut Oil, Pink Himalayan Salt (corse), 2tbs Apple Cider Vinegar (Braggs) and few drops of Lime/Orange oils.

    Hi, I’m new to all of this and have a question. I heard that coconut oil is good for you and, instead of reading more on it, I just purchased some on my next trip to the store. Before using it, I read that you should be sure to get the “good stuff” i.e. not refined and whatnot. Of course mine was. I had grabbed that Louanna stuff at Walmart. I won’t eat it, but I was wondering if it’d be OK for external uses? Maybe like this one? Can someone educate me please?

    • HikingDiva January 9, 2015, 3:25 am

      You want to make sure it is organic, whether you use it externally or internally. I melt my coconut oil over low heat and then pour it into small candy molds so that they are in easy pieces. In cold weather, it can be hard to scoop, this makes it easy. But move the “cubes” to the fridge come warm weather or you will have liquid again…

    • Kathy January 10, 2015, 6:07 am

      Your skin is your largest organ and absorbes the oil tremendously. I’d say order the good stuff but until you get it, use what you have. I LOVE Tropical Traditions co gold label. It’s on sale now too.

    How long will this stay fresh/good? Thx, Maggie

  • Tinx March 25, 2015, 2:48 am

    Good question Maggie! Does the salt preserve this mixture, since there are no preservative in? Or does one simply use it before it gets bacteria, I guess… LOL

  • wendy May 20, 2015, 1:01 pm

    Wow that’s a lot of drops LOL Would I need to worry about sun exposure for 24 hrs after using at this time of year? …with citrus oils being photosenstivie. ?
