Lemon Sugar Scrub

Wednesday, March 10, 2021


Happy Wednesday, My Lovelies!  Today I'm sharing a very easy craft that will make your hands feel so soft: Lemon Sugar Scrub!

Our hands have been through a lot lately.  They do so much for us and those we serve.  Don't they deserve some love and attention?  I think they do!  The beauty of this craft is that you probably have everything you need already at home.  

Okay so maybe you don't have any pretty lemon craft paper, but you can certainly purchase or order a sheet!

Here are the instructions for making a lovely smelling lemon sugar scrub:

It smells so good!  The texture worked out perfectly for me with the juice of only half a lemon, but the lemon I used was large.  So I suggest using a larger lemon.

I've always enjoyed sea salt and sugar scrubs.  It's nice to know how to make it.  This scrub should last around two months if you place it in a container that's airtight.  The recipe only makes a small amount (the jar I used is a four ounce size), so I think I will use it up before that time.  The amount I made completely fills the small jar.  It was the perfect amount!  You can double the recipe if you like, of course, and make one for yourself and one for a friend! 

Please let me know if you make it.  I love how soft it makes my hands feel!

This is another craft I learned about via our tiny local library.  We love our library and librarians: They are the best!!!

Until next time...

  1. Oh I bet this is so nice. Thanks for the recipe. xoxo

  2. Don't really know what you do with a scrub, though... Guess you just 'scrub' it on, at times. But not like a hand softener/healer. Which I have to use, every time I wash my hands.


  3. Thank you...

    I just added my email addy to my Profile Page.

    I hope that allows you, to email me, with an answer.
