Oatmeal Body Scrub Recipe

Make your own body scrub with chamomile and oats to nourish and soften dry, damaged or sensitive skin

Remove dry, flaky skin with this gentle, soothing oatmeal body scrub recipe. Oatmeal and almonds nourish as they exfoliate, and rosewood and palmarosa essential oils restore moisture, while chamomile calms irritation.

Especially good for dry, mature or sensitive, irritated skin.

This homemade body scrub takes two steps: you pre-mix and store the grains, then add the carrier oil at the last minute.

Oatmeal Body Scrub Recipe


1/4 cup (45g) Cornmeal

1/4 cup (30g) Rolled Oats, ground fine

1/4 cup (30g) Almonds, ground fine

1 tablespoon (15ml) Sweet Almond oil

9 drops Palmarosa essential oil

4 drops Rosewood essential oil

2 drops Chamomile essential oil

  1. In separate batches, grind the oats and almonds to a fine texture using a coffee grinder. (Make sure it's well cleaned first so your oatmeal body scrub doesn't end up smelling like coffee.)
  2. Using a metal spoon, stir them all together in a glass or ceramic bowl (or even the jar you intend to keep it in - remember to use dark glass or PET plastic.)
  3. Drop in the essential oils, placing each drop in its own little spot on top of the oatmeal body scrub mixture. Stir until thoroughly mixed.
  4. When you're ready to use your home made body scrub, stir in the Sweet Almond oil.
  5. To use, take a quick, warm shower to wet your skin. Standing in the bathtub, massage the oatmeal body scrub into your skin using gentle circular motions until your skin is rosy from the increased circulation.
  6. Rinse off under the shower, towel dry and moisturize.

Secret Weapon for Super Soft Skin

Here's a great secret for incredibly soft, smooth skin.

After you're done exfoliating, step out of the shower and wrap your hair in a towel but DON'T DRY OFF. Before you dry off, rub a body oil into your wet skin. (By the time you're done, your skin will have absorbed the oil, so your towel won't get all oily.)

That's it! Simple, quick and totally effective!


If you're sensitive to nuts, substitute 1/4 cup finely ground rice.

If you're allergic to ragweed, replace the chamomile essential oil with 3 drops lavender.

Do not use aromatherapy bodyscrub recipes on broken or irritated skin, and avoid your face and genitals.

Buying Homemade Body Scrub Ingredients
