Supplies needed:

How To Make Mango Strawberry Sugar Scrub

1. Get yourself a large mixing bowl that you don’t mind using for this activity. Then add the sugar and the almond oil into it. Give them both a big stir to ensure they are combined together.

2. Next up, you will want to add the color. Add the mica powder to the sugar and oil. Give it all another good stir.

3. Then you will want to add the essential oils to the mixture and stir to ensure the scent is combined with the sugar and oil.

4. Add your finished sugar scrub to an airtight container. A mason jar or glass storage jar would work well. Plus, they can be reused when you run out.


  • If you want to switch things up a little, then how about trying different scents? There are so many wonderful essential oils that you can add to these sugar scrubs. Lavender would be perfect for a bedtime routine and pamper shower. Citrus or mint will be invigorating, which is ideal for the morning. 
  • You could change the color of the sugar scrubs by using a different color of mica powder. Match up to the scent, so lemon essential oil could work great with yellow mica powder, for example. 
  • Why not try using coconut oil instead of almond oil? Coconut oil is great for your skin and also adds a scent that will work so well with mango and strawberry, as well as any other essential oils you might want to try. 
  • These are perfect gifts. Add the sugar scrubs to decorative glass jars and decorate them with a label explaining what it is and a lovely ribbon to finish it off. Perfect!

Tips & Tricks

  • Make sure you stir the mixture thoroughly between each step to ensure that everything combines.
