DIY Macadamia Butter and Lemongrass Sugar Scrub


It was a sad day when I finished my pot of my Urban Rituelle Lemongrass Botanical Body Scrub (reviewed here) It had the most amazing scent- Lemongrass, Lemon Myrtle and Grapefruit.

I experimented with the ingredients to get a more ‘scoopable’ (less sloppy) consistency than the Urban Rituelle scrub, and added a little bit of emulsifier so that it would rinse off cleaner rather than leaving behind the residue that I noticed with the original.

This is my version of the scrub. Smells like heaven.


  • 15g Macadamia Butter                               from
  • 5g Cetyl Alcohol                                            from
  • 15g Olive Oil                                                   sourced locally
  • 10g Jojoba Oil                                                from local health food store ( The Jojoba Company brand)
  • Lemongrass Essential Oil                           from local health food store
  • Grapefruit Essential Oil                              from local health food store
  • 1g Vitamin E 500IU                            
  • 0.8g Polysorbate 80                          
  • a few drops of optiphen                     
  • 70g Sugar



Step by step instructions:

1. Measure out your non heat sensitive ingredients- Cetyl Alcohol, the oils, polysorbate 80 and butters in a heat proof container.

2. Gently heat this in a saucepan of water until everything just melts.

3. Once everything is melted and mixed together, cool the mixture in the fridge until it goes semi solid.

4. Stir the semi solid oil/butter mix and incorporate your essential oils, vitamin E and optiphen.

5. Add your sugar.

6.  Try and hold back from eating your new body scrub!
