Ginger-Lime Brown Sugar Scrub DIY recipe

Ginger Lime Scrub

This Ginger-Lime Brown Sugar Scrub is super easy to make, and also makes a great gift! This scrub helps to exfoliate and soften your skin during fall & winter months. For best results, use one to two times a week on hands, feet, legs, or arms.

If you don’t love the Ginger Lime scent, omit those and add your favorite dōTERRA oils.


¼ cup brown sugar
¼ cup turbinado sugar
½ cup dōTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil
10 drops Lime oil
5 drops Ginger oil

Note: Turbinado sugar is a large grained sugar that helps with deep exfoliation. If you don’t have turbinado sugar, you can use all brown sugar.


Combine brown sugar, turbinado sugar, FCO and essential oils in bowl.
Stir until well combined.
Store in airtight container.

To use, apply a small amount to hands and scrub for 30 seconds or until sugar dissolves. Rinse with warm water and pat dry. Delicious!

Essential oils for dogs? Yes please!

Lexi at 4 months

This is Lexi, our 4 month old Golden Lab/Border Collie mix, and she came with a raging case of worms… you know, those gross little white things that look like rice when they dry out? Yeah, those.

I did my research and saw that dōTERRA DigestZen oil has several compounds that help with all sorts of digestive things, including ginger and fennel oil, and it’s safe for dogs. I applied 2-3 drops on her tummy and rubbed it in… I did this twice, 2 days apart.

Results? Lots of worms came out, and they were alive – awesome. And now, I’m not seeing any worms in her poo. Worms be gone. This stuff works!

She has a vet appointment on Monday, and I will definitely be bringing samples to the vet. I think it’s super important that we use non-toxic ways to help our pets stay healthy and happy.

When she gets going in ‘crazy puppy mode’, running around and chomping on things, I like to calm her down with a little Cedarwood and Lavender on her baby paws, and I also put a few drops on her bed. She sleeps through the night now too! Heaven for me!

Love this stuff…

Have an amazing day! I know I will… so grateful for my cute little puppy!
