Lemon Sugar Hand Scrub
« on: July 07, 2013, 05:00:04 am »
Lemon Sugar Hand Scrub

Begin my mixing 2 1/2 Cups of Sugar with 1 Cup of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Add in 4 Tablespoons of Lemon Juice {or scented essential oils to your liking}.
This mixture will make enough to fill a 12oz. Mason Jar {and you’ll have just enough left over to clean your hands afterwards too}
Mix really well until a gritty paste forms and spoon into a glass container. {make sure your container has a lid that seals}
 After sitting for awhile you may need to mix prior to using as the sugar may settle. A tiny bit is all you need and it leaves your skin extra soft and smooth.
{plus not to mention it scrubs away all craft evidence}
 Thought this might be good for Christmas hampers
Haven't tried it yet. Stephanies website has a lot of other interesting stuff on it.
Have only just discovered it so I'm still exploring

Thanks for this Lucy. It sounds similar to Nanna mays hand scrub which I love and is a little pricey so will be making some of this up soon. It's also great on your heels.  :D

I think I'll have to go and smile sweetly at a neighbour for some more lemons. My Mum always swore by lemons for her hands.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

Made this today with DS4's help. Easy and fun to make. Leaves your hands smelling lovely too.
