The Best At-Home Body Scrub Massage
What is a Body Scrub Massage?
A full body scrub massage is a type of exfoliation treatment that uses a Body Scrub to remove dead skin cells and promote circulation. Body scrubs are usually made with natural ingredients such as sugar, salt, coffee, or oats. They can also be infused with essential oils for an added therapeutic benefits.

- Improved skin health

- Relief from muscle aches and pains
What Body Scrubs to Use
You're gonna want the good stuff for this full body scrub. Unfortunately, some sugar scrubs can be too rough on the skin for everyday use, let alone to massage with. Beauty By Earth's sugar scrub, however, is gentle yet effective and perfect for those with sensitive skin.
Massage therapy and spa treatments are all about the aromatics—especially using essential oil. Luckily, BBE's scrubs come in some pretty stellar scents like vanilla coconut, lavender citrus, coffee & sugar, and peppermint tea tree. High quality essential oils offer a heap of benefits on top of their smell. (Read more in our guide here.) You'll certainly be scented up and feeling good after your sugar body scrub.
Let's Get Started
Now that you know what a Body Scrub Massage is and the benefits of giving yourself one, let's get started!
First, choose the Body Scrub that best fits your needs.
If you're looking for an invigorating scrub, we recommend using our coffee & sugar body scrub. For a more relaxing experience, try our citrus lavender body scrub. (Lavender is one of the calming essential oils, you know.)
Next, wet your skin in the shower or bathtub and apply the Body Scrub to your entire body.
Gently rub the scrub into your skin in circular motions for about five minutes. Rinse off the Body Scrub with warm water and pat your skin dry. Be sure to place a towel around the bath area to avoid slippage.
Now it's time for the fun part—the massage!
Apply a generous amount of the scrub to your skin and begin massaging your muscles in long, slow strokes. Start with your back and work your way down to your feet. Spend extra time on areas that feel especially tense or sore.
After you've given yourself a full-body massage, take a moment to relax and enjoy the benefits of softer, more radiant skin. Body scrub massages are an excellent way to improve your skin health and appearance, so be sure to add them to your self-care routine!
