Unicorn Sugar Scrub Recipe

Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, unicorns are ALL the rage in our house and with my daughter’s friends. I decided to let the adults get in on the fun and make some rainbow unicorn sugar scrub. Maybe I’ll throw a little mini unicorn party for the adults, because, why not?!

I love making body scrub recipes and you can find all of them here. These are easy to make – so easy the kids can even make them for friends, moms and caregivers, or just anyone who needs a little pampering.


This recipe is so simple and quick to come together. We’re going to combine a little white sugar, coconut oil, and a few drops of “magic” to leave your skin feeling soft and silky smooth.

If you’re ready to make your own unicorn body scrub, let’s get started.

Tips to Make Unicorn Sugar Scrub

  • Don’t feel like you’re stuck with pastel colors. Make your unicorn sugar scrub as intense or as pale of a color set as you like BUT only use soap or mica colorants. NOT food coloring.
  • Why don’t we use food coloring? Because it will likely stain your bathtub, hands, and skin. Avoid all that and use soap colorant.
  • Please use warmed coconut oil (doesn’t have to be melted), but using the hard, cold oil is frustrating work.
  • If you’d like to use a different fragrance oil other than bubble gum, I recommend cotton candy. Either one will go with the rainbow sugar scrub.
  • Can you use your favorite essential oils instead of the fragrance oil? Of course!
  • Use 4 small bowls. It is easier to start by splitting the ingredients as you go than making this sugar scrub recipe in a big batch.
