DIY Lemon Sugar Scrub:


2 Cups White granulated sugar
1/4 to 1/3 cup Coconut Oil (or grapeseed oil)
5 drops Lemon essential oil or 1 TBSP Lemon Rind
Glass container with lid for the scrub


Step 1:

In a mixing bowl add 2 cups of white granulated sugar

Step 2:

Slowly mix in the coconut oil until the sugar is a nice soft consistency. It shouldn’t be too oily, but more fluffy.

Step 3:

Add a few drops of lemon essential oil (you can use peel but do not use juice as it will grow bacteria).

Step 4:

Scoop the sugar scrub into a jar and decorate the jar as you see fit!

Step 5:

Slather the sugar scrub on wet hands or feet to exfoliate and rinse clean. Sit back, enjoy and take a few minutes for yourself! You deserve it!

    1. It will depend on your container size. I normally purchase 1 cup size or use a recycled jar with lid. Jelly Jars work great!
