During the winter time my hands become very rough and dry. Aside from using awesome lotions and butters, using a great sugar scrub on my hands helps soothe them so much. This is one of the simplest recipes I have ever whipped up, yet one of my favorites. If you are a fan of sugar scrubs, be sure to try this DIY sugar scrub recipe.
While I have to admit I really enjoy making homemade products and gifting them to others, who doesn’t? The main reason behind starting to experiment in my kitchen is so that I can know exactly what is going into the products I am putting onto my skin that will be absorbed into my body.
Who would have thought that with simple ingredients many people have on hand, you can whip up a batch yourself. I have purchased organic scrubs before for $15+ but they are no longer needed!
Coconut Lemon DIY Sugar Scrub
You will only need a few simple ingredients to get started. While I purchased my glass jars for gifts, traditionally I would just repurpose other glass jars for these type of projects. Click on the ingredient to see where I purchase each of them myself.
- 1 1/2 Cup of Organic Sugar
- 1/2 Cup of Coconut Oil, Melted
- 4 Tablespoons of Sweet Almond Oil
- 10-12 drops of Organic Lemon Essential Oil
Add your sugar to a clean bowl. Add in your melted coconut oil and sweet almond oil. Stir well to combine. Add in your lemon essential oil and stir to mix throughout.
Spoon into clean glass jars and enjoy!
