DIY Beauty: Homemade Chocolate Body Scrub Recipe

With a baby at home, it’s hard enough to schedule a haircut every four months, let alone an actual spa day. Instead, I’ve been taking another route with DIY Spa Scrubs! I shared a recipe for a Sugar Cookie Scrub a few months back, and now I have one for the chocolate lovers!

Don’t forget, Mother’s Day & Teacher Appreciation Week are right around the corner- better make a double batch!

DIY Homemade Chocolate Body Scrub- just 3 ingredients!

Homemade Chocolate Body Scrub


1 Cup Coconut Oil
½ Cup Brown Sugar
¼ Cup Cocoa Powder
Four 4 oz. Jelly Jars


1. In a medium bowl, combine the coconut oil, brown sugar and cocoa powder and mix well.

2. Add the scrub to your 4 oz. Jelly jars!

3 Ingredient DIY Homemade Chocolate Body Scrub

As you can see, the scrub is very easy to make- the hardest part is trying not to eat it! This recipe would be very easy to double {or quadruple!} to give as gifts, sell for a fundraiser, or make ahead for indulgent baths for months to come! Stored in an airtight container, the scrub will last for about 6 months. If there is any separation, just stir the mixture and it’ll be good as new.

Who would you make this for?

  17. James Robert says:

    I looked and thought this looks about good enough to eat then read where you wrote that. Great!

  18. I love homemade scrubs and this one sounds just right to make for a gift. Thanks for sharing.

  19. Made this yesterday with a few tweaks. I added lots more sugar (a mix of brown, white, and raw) because it seemed too runny and less exfoliant, and added a little more cocoa powder and chocolate essence because I felt like it smelled more like coconut than chocolate. Tasted yummy, felt nice, and left my hands feeling moisturized with a super slight hint of chocolate and coconut smell. Will def make this again! Thank you for the recipe. Giving as Valentine’s Day gifts.
