Sugar base - CBD topical exfoliating body scrub recipes

Published Jun 2, 2019 10:24 a.m. ET

The human body is always shedding layers of skin, which is why a heavy-duty body scrub will leave you feeling cleaner than ever and nicely refreshed. The trouble is that there are so many manufactured products that utilize unnatural abrasive ingredients that might cause harm or irritation. These homemade CBD infused body scrubs use natural sugars to gently remove the dead skin and leave your skin glowing. Other all-natural ingredients include olive oil, honey, a touch of citrus, and CBD isolate, which is 99% pure. If you do not have access to a reliable source for CBD isolate, then there are also the options of using a different CBD product like oil or CBD wax to infuse the olive oil, it will just take a little bit longer to complete.

Brown sugar CBD body scrub recipe

This CBD topical body scrub is the gentlest of sugar-based recipes, as the granules from brown sugar are much smaller and therefore also less abrasive.

You will need:

  • 0.5 grams of CBD isolate
  • 6 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 5 tablespoons of honey (raw)
  • ½ cup of brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of citrus zest (Orange, lemon, or lime)
  • 1 small sealable glass container
  • 1 small mixing bowl
  • 1 mixing spoon


  1. Add the isolate, olive oil, and honey to a mixing bowl, and combine the ingredients.
  2. Slowly add in the brown sugar while mixing until the body scrub reaches your desired consistency.
  3. Now you can finish with a touch of whatever type of zest you might prefer, and then scoop the mixture into a sealable glass container.
  4. Once complete, you will have enough CBD topical body scrub to wash your face with for one week or your entire body for a couple of showers. Though this recipe can be made in bulk, the ingredients tend to clump when left to set. It’s always best to whip up a fresh batch whenever possible.
  5. Use the CBD infused brown sugar scrub by scooping out ½ of a teaspoon for each time you need to wash your face before bed.

White sugar CBD body scrub recipe (with fragrance)

White sugar consists of larger granules that are perfect for scrubbing away areas of dry or dead skin. Especially on the hands and feet, though some people prefer the feel of this version as it does scrub away more dirt and skin than the gentler brown sugar recipe.


You will need:

  • 0.5 grams of CBD isolate
  • ½ cup of white granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • ⅓ cup of coconut oil
  • 5-15 drops of essential oils
  • 1 small mixing bowl
  • 1 small glass resealable container
  • spoon


  1. Begin by adding the oils, and the CBD isolate to a small mixing bowl and combine the ingredients until the powder has completely dissolved.
  2. Now you can slowly add in the sugar one tablespoon at a time until the mixture reaches a consistency that you like.
  3. The very last thing to add is the fragrance which can be done using anywhere from 5-15 drops of your favorite essential oils and mix them into the body scrub. Just be sure to use skin, safe grade products that are soothing like lavender.
  4. Scoop the CBD infused body scrub into a sealable container for storage. Once finished, you should have enough of this CBD topical to wash your face daily for one week, or your entire body 2-3 times. Just like with any sugar scrubs, a fresh batch will be clump free and is always preferred over making larger batches.

Where to buy CBD isolate

Unfortunately, making your own CBD isolate likely isn’t going to happen anytime soon, as the tools required for this method of extraction are difficult to obtain. However, there are plenty of options available depending on the region that you live in. Since CBD isolate is extracted from hemp plants, it isn’t nearly as restricted as THC products, which means it can be found almost anywhere from weed dispensaries to your local health food store. If you haven't seen any local CBD isolate products, then look around online for a reputable manufacturer.
