Lemon sugar scrub


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.

Happy Victoria Day to my Canadian friends… No work or school tomorrow! Happy Birthday to Dylan too…my baby is ten years old today!
