DIY Homemade Lemon Sugar Scrub


Whether you need a nice gift that won’t break the bank, or you’d just like to treat yourself to a little spa-at-home action, homemade sugar scrub is the perfect solution.  The neat thing about this recipe is how versatile it is.  You can change the scent simply by using a different essential oil.

Here’s what you need to make lemon sugar scrub:

  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 3-4 drops lemon essential oil
  • half pint mason jar with lid

To make:

  • Combine ingredients in a bowl.
  • Stir.
  • Pour into mason jar and make sure the lid is tight.

No really, that’s it!

To use scrub: Stir mixture. Scoop out some scrub and rub lightly onto hands or body (avoid face). Rinse/pat dry.

When gifting this scrub, I like to attach a wooden spoon or thick craft stick for the recipient to use for stirring and scooping.  At home I just use my fingers to scoop it out!

This scrub will keep at room temperature for about a year.
