Snow Cone Sugar Scrub made with coconut oil and sugar is for perfect for summer! It smells like a snow cone and keeps your skin soft and smooth!
Raise your hand if you have fond memories of eating snow cones as a kid…or maybe you still love eating them. My husband used to have a guy that would ride a bike with a cart through his neighborhood, selling snow cones.
We didn’t have a “snow cone guy,” but we would get snow cones from concession stands and street vendors. I thought it would be fun to make a snow cone sugar scrub for summer with the flavors of snow cone syrup. It smells delicious and makes your skin so soft!
How To Make Snow Cone Sugar Scrub
For each color, mix together three tablespoons of fractionated coconut oil and two teaspoons of sweet almond oil.
Add 1/3 cup granulated sugar to each.
Add a couple of drops of flavored oil for scent and a drop or two of food coloring to tint the sugar scrub.
Watermelon oil in the pink sugar scrub, lime oil in the green sugar scrub and raspberry in the blue sugar scrub.
Tilt a small jar (I used Kerr 8 oz jars half pint wide mouth) to the side and spoon in the colored sugar scrub, one layer at a time.
This scrub makes your legs and feet feel amazingly smooth! Just be careful though, because products containing oil can make the shower/tub slippery!

Thanks for sharing! Does it keep long?
None of the ingredients in the scrub are perishable, so it should last 3-6 months if unopened. But once you start using it, wet hands or moisture from the shower will rapidly decrease the shelf life, so it should be used within a couple of weeks.
This looks so good! What a great gift to make for friends!

Hi!, how are you? I love this recipe but will it make me look tinted pink or blue? Thanks, can you answer asap.
That would depend on how much food coloring you put into the scrub. Using one or two drops is fine. But if you are concerned, you can simply omit the food coloring. The scrub will still smell great and work well! 🙂
Where do u get your wooden spoons
The scoop I used in this blog post came with a jar I purchased at Hobby Lobby. I found the following small tasting spoons on Amazon that would work: https://amzn.to/388aPbS
Could I use a few drops of scented body oil so that I can make it for my dad and my hunny…I want to use their fav cologne scent that comes in an oil form
hi there i was just wondering how big the jars are?
I used Kerr 8 oz jars Kerr Half-Pint Wide Mouth http://www.freshpreservingstore.com/kerr-half-pint-8-oz-wide-mouth-jars-set-of-12/shop/383255/
Hey do I have to use almond oil or Can I use somthing else or not at all use that and just the sugar and coconut oil
Yes, you can use another oil such as olive oil or just use more coconut oil. Best of luck!
Is there a specific brand of coconut oil that you prefer to use?
No, I just use whatever brand I can find at the store I’m shopping at. Best of luck!
I use fractionated coconut oil. It doesn’t get solid.

I am a teacher and want my class to make these for Mother’s Day. I will most likely pay for most of the products needed for this, so I was wondering if there are cheaper oils I could use that won’t change the final product that much? The almond oil is the most expensive.
Also, would I be able to use a little less coconut oil as my final product was really very oily, or is it suppose to be that way?
Thanks for any suggestions you can give me.
You can add less coconut oil. It is personally your choice how oily or dry you want it. For the scents, you could either skip them, or just add vanilla extract or cheap essential oils of you choice, instead of the oils in the recipe. It won’t change the final product, except for scent.
Thanks for this post! I was wondering how many jars of the size shown does this recipe make? I will be making for a party of 15 girls. Thank you!
This recipe was enough for one jar. Enjoy!
I was wondering where you got your labels made?
Which labels are you wondering about? You can find many of my free printable labels here: http://www.thegunnysack.com/free-printables/ I used a free, online photo editing site to make them. Best of luck!
Hello! First off, I want to say how awesome this sugar scrub is! Now I have a couple questions… One of them is can you add fresh fruit juice like a clementine or something instead of the food coloring? The other one is would olive oil work, or would it make it smell bad? Thank you so much! I love this website!
I know it’s been a while since you did not get an answer..I would not recommend using any food products such as fruit,since them may spoil or go rancid,just a thought..I use Almond oil as a carrier when I don’t want to use Olive oil,as it tends to be overwhelming. Almond oil is very subtle,or grapeseed oil, is also good.
Elizabeth Hernandez says
Can extracts like almond or vanilla be used in place of the scented oils?
Yes! They can be but the oils are more concentrated so you will need to use more of the extract than you would the oils. Best of luck!
I’m sure this will make your shower super slippery. Any suggestions?
Well what you could do if your shower gets a little slippery then you could turn on the shower and it would get a quick rinse and if that does not work then you may have to wash the slippery part
