Lemon Sugar Scrub is a really easy and quick D.IY. that uses only 3 ingredients. It’s a gift that both men and women accept happily! The sugar in the scrub exfoliates away dead and dry skin, and the coconut oil leaves your skin feeling soft and moisturized.
2 1/2 cups of granulated sugar
1/4 cup of coconut oil
First microwave 1/4 cup of coconut oil for about 45 seconds. If the oil doesn’t fully melt try stirring it or microwave for an additional 15-30 seconds. Be careful when taking it out not to burn yourself.
Pour the coconut oil over 2 cups of the granulated sugar. Mix the ingredients well and then add the additional 1/2 cup of sugar.
Remove the zest and juice from one lemon.
Pour the lemon juice and zest into the sugar/coconut mix and mix well. You don’t want the mix to be too dry, if it is add more lemon juice (or a touch of oil if you used all your lemon).
I bought small glass jars from the dollar store that I could put the sugar scrub in.
I made custom labels for the jars from blank folder labels that I also purchased at the dollar store.
You can also add cute ribbon or bows to customize for any occasion!
Have you gotten any feedback on the scrub? I need a new scrub that will smooth skin and leave it feeling soft. (and not clogging up the drain would be nice, too! haha!)
Yes, everyone is loving this! I made it for about 10 people as stocking stuffers. The sugar exfoliates away dry skin and the coconut oil leaves hands really soft and moisturized
It rinses away and dissolves well. You don’t need much when using it on hands, clogging your drain definitely won’t be a worry!
