This turmeric body scrub recipe is easy to make and has many skin benefits. Also tips for a versions for face, sensitive skin or rough skin.



1 cup white sugar (or brown for face scrub, use salt for more aggressive body scrub)

1/4 cup sweet almond oil or coconut oil

2 tablespoons ground turmeric powder

10-12 drops essential oil (I used lavender and lemon)

Optional: add 1/2  teaspoon rosehip oil or Vitamin E oil or a teaspoon of castor oil

Optional: teaspoon of citric acid


If you are using coconut oil that is solidified, melt it first.

Combine all ingredients in a medium mixing bowl and stir well.

Once evenly mixed, transfer to an airtight container, such as a mason jar.


Apply to wet skin and massage on skin in a circular motion. Rinse with warm water and pat dry with a towel.



 For those with very sensitive skin, almond meal can be used in place of the brown sugar in a face scrub. It is even gentler. Be mindful, this will need to be refrigerated and will have a short shelf life.

A tablespoon of honey added as well will make the scrub more akin to a scrubbing face mask. Give it a try.
