Last Minute Gift Idea: D.I.Y. Lemon Sugar Scrub

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

1 lemon

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!
