Lemon sugar scrub

Standard

This is the third recipe for the little spa gift package I made with the Brownies for Mother’s Day. This is a quick and easy recipe that I will use on a regular basis, especially after being outside and in the garden. There are different versions of this recipe online, but they are all basically a sugar mixed with an oil. I used coconut oil because I love coconut oil, and I have lot of it. When you use this scrub, the idea is you scrub your hands, elbows or feet with it for a couple minutes, then wash it off with soap and water. It really is a great exfoliant, and once again, I like the fact that I know everything that’s in it…
The ingredients are:
Sugar, coconut oil, lemon essential oil, and a couple drops of food colouring.

The instructions are pretty simple…mix everything together. I used about 1/2 cup of sugar, 6 tablespoons of coconut oil, a few drops of food colouring, and and a few drops of the lemon essential oil.

As you can see in the second photo, I used a simple plastic container, however, you could also us a glass container, a mason jar, reuse an old cream container, etc.
I also printed out labels using mailing labels, and a template on word. Here again, are all three of the spa items we made for Mother’s Day.
