This stuff is seriously my jam right now! Anything with lemon in the title is an automatic win in my book, but this sugar scrub really is fabulous. I've been seeing it pop up all over Pinterest in the past year or so, but never really understood what all the hype was about. That is, until my best friend made me some candy cane sugar scrub for Christmas. I was instantly hooked! It made my skin feel so soft and smooth, like a baby's bottom. Sometimes, I even get really crazy and just soak in the bath tub with it, ahh so relaxing. I've talked it up so much, even my husband uses it now.
So when Spring rolled around it was no surprise that I needed to make some lemon scented scrub. With the lemon scent, I've reached a whole new level of obsessed.
This sugar scrub is very easy to make.
one lemon, 3 cups sugar, 1/4 cup coconut oil
1. Zest the entire lemon, then cut in half and squeeze out the lemon juice.
2. Heat coconut oil in microwave for about 30 seconds
3. Combine sugar, lemon zest, lemon juice, and coconut oil into a large bowl.
4. Mix well and enjoy!
The original recipe called for 2 1/2 cups of sugar, but I try to get more bang for my buck, so I use 3 cups. I can usually fill about 2 shorter mason jars with one "batch".
Have you used sugar scrub before?
What other scents do you recommend?
(I may need to start branching out a little)
Happy Friday Friends!
