Brown Sugar Peach Body Scrub

Brown Sugar Peach Scrub

While I am spending some time with the good people of JC Penney this week at their headquarters in Plano, Texas…my friend Mique of Thirty Handmade Days has kindly offered to fill in for me today and is sharing a recipe for body scrub that sounds good enough to eat! :-) Please give her a warm OGT welcome!

Mique writes…….    Hi there – I’m Mique (like Mickey) from Thirty Handmade Days and the Queen Bee Market. On 30days I love to post all things creative but specifically printableseasy recipes and lots of unique gift ideas. I love this site and all of the amazing ideas Jill posts so I’m super happy to be here today to share a really simple recipe with you.

I know there are lots of body scrub recipes floating around but when I’m making something, I lean towards the easiest way. No complicated recipes, no crazy ingredients. The base for this scrub can turn any kind of “flavor” into a scrub. You can also add a variety of essential oils – for a calming effect, to help your skin, and for overall health. Are you ready to get started?

This is all you need:

Brown Sugar Peach Scrub

Yep. Just 4 ingredients. You probably already have them in your pantry. You might have to get some peaches.. but the other 3, I bet you do. Here’s how you make this super simple body scrub:

4 Ingredient Peach Body Scrub

  • 2 ripe peaches, mashed
  • 2/3 c. brown sugar
  • 2/3 c. white sugar
  • 2/3 c. olive oil (other oils can be used as well – coconut, almond or grapeseed)

Directions:

Mix ingredients in a medium sized bowl until combined. After rinsing off in the shower, use scrub generously over your skin and let sit for a minute. Rinse off again. And that’s it.
Note- the peach doesn’t need to be peeled. Just simply slice and mash. Tada!
This recipe was originally found here and slightly adapted.

And because I can’t resist a good printable or a pun, I created a set of cute tags to go along with this scrub.

You can stick the scrub in a container and attach these printables for the perfect gift any time of year. Hop on over to 30days to grab the printable. (Printable will available Wednesday morning.)

  • I tried making this but as a first time DIY person the directions were very imprecise and assumed an understanding of the process that is not necessarily so with a beginner. First, you do not mention that the peaches HAVE to be ripe, otherwise they won’t mash. Yes, you probably shouldn’t have to slow down for those of us who don’t grasp that, but still, it would be nice to have said that up front. And since peach season is very short in most parts of the country above the Mason-Dixon line is there another fruit that can be substituted? Or is this scrub just for a certain time of the year? And finally, I’m aggravated that I wasted ingredients trying to achieve this product and was unable to with the glib and carefree instructions given. I’ll try it again during peach season, but really, better instructions next time. Thank you.

    • Mary Kay- since unripened peaches are firmer, i would think you could take your ingredients and run them through a food processor for a few swirls. that should help ‘mash’ the peaches and get everything combined. Nothing wasted.

  • I just discovered your good things. I worked in the cosmetic industry for over 18 years. What you have shared with me works better then just about anything i’ve ever used. When working in the cosmetics field they give us product so we will use them, most all of them are expensive but free or not I’ve been trying the recipes you have shared and barnon you top them all!!! Keep them coming.

  • I am glad you are getting to visit Texas, but big city Texas isn’t the same as small town rural Texas. Get in your rental car and drive to the smallest cool town in Texas, Albany Texas. Texas Monthly gave Albany that name. Just get on I 20 and head west 200 miles. I will be waiting. lol You did pick a good time when it is not 110. We are enjoying the rain we desperately need. Some towns in Texas only have 90 days of drinking water left.
