What You Need to Make Piña Colada Sugar Scrub:

Making Pineapple Pina Colada Sugar Scrub

Start by coloring your sugar, if desired. It only takes a TINY bit of food coloring! Remember, once you add the coconut oil, the color will appear darker and more saturated than the sugar does. For this batch, I added three drops of food coloring to one cup of sugar, and stirred until they were completely combined.

Easy DIY Pineapple sugar scrub

Stir the coconut oil and the pineapple fragrance into the sugar, and your scrub is ready to use – easy peasy! Feel free to add a bit more sugar or coconut oil if you prefer a drier or runnier consistency to your scrub.

Note: if your coconut oil is solid (at temperatures below 76 degrees), you can warm it in the microwave until it becomes a liquid for easier mixing!

For these mini pineapple soaps, I used about 1/2 lb. of the soap base in a Pyrex measuring cup, and added 5 drops of pineapple fragrance and 1 block of gold soap colorant. I filled the pineapple molds 2/3 of the way full with gold soap (there will still be soap leftover in the measuring cup), and allowed it to cool. I took the remaining gold soap in the measuring cup and melted it again, adding lime green colorant to the gold, and filled the remaining 1/3 of each pineapple mold. Allow to cool completely before removing soap from molds.

  1. How long do the sugar scrubs last after made? If you put them in a mason jar to give as a gift, what would the shelf life be?

  2. Hi Heidi,

    My question is if I were to add such as olive oil, grapeseed oil, sweet almond oil to this what kind would you recommend? I did this same ratio of sugar to coconut oil and used Lavender for my essential oil. I felt it was non existence and I used 20 drops. What kind of essential oils do you recommend?

    1. I would recommend sweet almond oil over the other options – it has great skin benefits, and the scent won’t overpower the fragrance of your essential oils. Essential oils can vary greatly, and some may be more potent and fragrant than others. I personally use Young Living oils the most often, but there are many options that would work well for you – you just may need to play around with the amount of oil that you add and add slowly until you get to the amount of fragrance that you desire.

    1. Absolutely! Just use a light touch when rubbing the scrub on to the skin as younger skin tends to be more delicate. 🙂

  3. Is it possible to use pineapple juice instead of pineapple fragrance oil for the Piña Colada sugar scrub? Thanks!

    1. Hi Raquelle, you can definitely use pineapple juice, however, the scrub will need to be used right away in order to prevent any mold or bacteria growth. 🙂

  4. These are some really great DIY sugar scrubs and I am going to try the pinapple one.I bet it smells amazing.

  5. Do you ever play around with scents for the scrub, or do you always stick with pineapple? I’m just not sure what else I’d use it for.

  6. Hey. I love your Pineapple Scrub. I just wanted to know what size container will the Scrub fit in? Please reply! Thanks!

    1. The amount shown is in an 8 oz jar, but it’s very easy to adjust the measurements if you want to fill a larger jar! 🙂

  7. Hi ! Love your scrub and soaps! Super cute! can you guide me on where to find the jars? How many ounces are the ones pictures? Thank you!

  8. Do you know how long this will last? I would like to make this as part of the favors for my best friends baby shower which will be in June and I will need to make a ton haha! Just wondering how far in advance you think I could start to make it and it would still be ok by the shower? Thank you!

    1. Were you looking to make the scrub or the soaps, Courtney? The soaps will last indefinitely in a dry location, but you may get a little bit of “bleeding” or a slight mixing of the two colors after awhile (at least a month or longer), so I would recommend making them fresh no more than a few weeks before the shower. For the scrub, you can make it up to a month in advance as long as it is kept in sealed containers in a dry area. 🙂

    1. Coconut oil becomes solid at temperatures below 76 degrees. If it is solid, you can melt it in the microwave for a few seconds before mixing. 🙂

  9. Hi! I’d like to enter the world of home made scrubs, but I need to know if there’s a specific type of container, or a simple mason jar will do? How long does it last?
    Thank you.

    1. A simple mason jar works great! The scrubs have a different shelf life depending on the ingredients included, but a basic estimate is 2 weeks – 3 months (again, dependent upon ingredients). 🙂
