Blissful Lemon Sugar Scrub

Standard

Goodbye winter, hello spring! To celebrate this amazing time of renewal and rejuvenation, I made a homemade sugar scrub to slough off that dry winter skin. This is super easy to throw together and makes a great gift for your friends, too.

All you do is mix together sugar, oil, lemon zest and lemon essential oil. There are tons of variations you could do with this: lavender, sandalwood, orange, lime, rose, etc. I used organic sugar because that is what I had. This could be a great opportunity to get rid of that white sugar that you don’t want to use any more. For the oil, I used almond, but grapeseed, olive or even sesame would work too. When this is all mixed together, it kind of smells like Lemon Meringue Pie, which I think is pretty darn blissful.
