All Natural Homemade Activated Charcoal DIY Body Scrub Recipe

One of my favourite online store, Biome, has recently launched Australia’s first zero waste beauty bar! Using ingredients from there, I’ve made their Activated Charcoal DIY Body Scrub Recipe!

Biome Eco Store, based in Brisbane and online, has Australia’s largest range of eco-friendly products. Their natural range covers all things skin care and beauty, household and so much more. We got our kids’s Yumboxes from their online store and use them daily.

In recent years, my family has been making small changes to become more sustainable – it’s a work in progress. One thing I love about Biome is that they’ve done the hard work for us in selecting their range! The ingredients they have chosen are toxin-free and from natural and sustainable sources.

The new Naked Beauty Bar lets customers create their own natural zero waste beauty products! It gives us the opportunity to also learn more about the ingredients we can use to look after our skin. A great example is this charcoal body scrub DIY.

This post is in collaboration with Biome.

Biome asked me what skin care product I would love to create and I chose to make my own all natural Body Scrub Recipe. I’ve always wanted to learn how to make my own skin care so this was exciting.

Charcoal Body Scrub Recipe Review

The ingredients I’m using to create this DIY activated charcoal scrub recipe are toxin-free and great for my skin type.

The Activated Charcoal Body Scrub Recipe Ingredients

Here’s how to make charcoal scrub:


  • ½ cup organic raw sugar
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil (from your pantry)
  • ½ tablespoon activated charcoal powder
  • ½ tablespoon bentonite clay
  • 4 drops grapefruit essential oil
  • 4 drops lavender essential oil
  • 4 drops orange essential oil
  • 4 drops lemon essential oil


  1. Add the sugar, olive oil, activated charcoal and bentonite clay and essential oils into a glass bowl (when working with clay it is important not to use a metallic bowl or utensils). I decided to just mix straight in to the jar.
  2. Mix with a wooden spoon until well combined
  3. Place into a 240ml glass jar and seal.

How to Use a Charcoal Scrub

I’ve been using this in the shower a couple of times a week and it’s been perfect to help get summer ready! This is a body scrub, not a charcoal face mask or DIY face scrub recipe, and is particularly lovely on very dry areas. Here is my finished Activated Charcoal DIY Body Scrub!

Each are in a Grab and Go jar for you to take home.

My Thoughts

Making my own homemade body scrub was so much fun and it was lovely to know exactly what I will be putting on my skin. I had the opportunity to learn about every single ingredient that went into it.

This particular DIY charcoal scrub recipe is perfect for me – it’s a lovely and gentle scrub that helps to smooth my skin and draw out impurities. It IS a little messy in the shower but I love it.

If you, or someone know you, loves skin care and wants to find a new way of reducing the waste, this is a lovely opportunity. Actually a package of a recipe and the ingredients needed would make for a lovely gift for someone too!

    Thanks for sharing this. I’ll have to give this company a try. I bought an activated charcoal scrub already made from another company and it wasn’t great.

I hope you enjoy learning how to make planner stickers or how to start a sticker business!

I’ve been making and selling stickers for journals and planners since 2016 and it’s become a wonderful and creative way to turn my hobby into a side hustle, then full-time online business.

Whether you want to make Cricut stickers, Silhouette stickers or you’re starting from complete scratch, you’re in the right place. Making planner stickers can be for you, or to start an Etsy sticker shop and sell stickers online and you don’t need any previous experience to get started.
