Rose Sugar Scrub

Rose Sugar Scrub | Homan at Home

My husband got me a beautiful bouquet of flowers for Valentine’s Day. He included my favorite – pink roses. The one sad thing about real flowers, though, is they wilt, and pretty quickly too. My lovely flowers only lasted about two weeks before I finally decided to consign them to the trash.  However, my Pinterest feed turned up a tutorial on using wilted roses to make a variety of beauty products. I started with the sugar scrub since it looked super easy.

And it is. All you have to do is put your three ingredients (all of them super common – they’re probably sitting on your pantry shelves right now!) into a food processor or blender and pulse until you get the consistency you like. There could not be an easier project. Seriously.

And the scrub works great! It has a beautiful scent and color from the roses, and the oil and sugar mixture leaves your hands feeling amazingly soft. This would make a great gift, especially for Mothers’ Day!

How long can it be kept amd used?

Diane Homan

The scrub is best used in the first week (the scent is strongest), but you can keep it for up to three weeks in an airtight container 🙂

Can we use this scrub on face ??

Diane Homan

You could. The baby oil is a great moisturizer, and rose is wonderful as a toner. However, if you have sensitive skin, sugar may be too harsh and irritate your skin. Best if luck!


Awesome recip. Can you swap the baby oil for olive oil. Also, using the rose petals what is the shelf life on the scrub?

Diane Homan

Thanks! You can swap oils, and the shelf life is 1-2 weeks 🙂


Did you dry your rose petals (air/oven) or use as is when wilted? I keep trying to dry rose petals in the oven but they don’t smell nice, and I don’t know what I am doing wrong…I’ve rinsed/patted dry, tried various temps and times…I just end up using air dried but I like to create when the mood strikes

Diane Homan

I just used them wilted. Not sure how dried roses would affect the scrub – let me know if you ever find out!
