lemon sugar scrub

My friend Lori makes an amazing sugar scrub. It smells of oranges and leaves your skin feeling silky soft. I’m always sad when my supply runs out and will eagerly accept a jar (or two!) when she’s offering. I’ve been hounding her for the recipe for almost a year now and she will. not. budge. With a gleeful look in her eye she tells me her recipe is top secret and it kills me. Kills me! Aren’t we supposed to be the best of friends!? I admit, it makes me feel a little huffy but I know she won’t tell me precisely because it makes me a little huffy. It’s a big joke now.

So I decided to make my own sugar scrub. I scoured pinterest for recipe ideas – and there are loads of them. Then I looked in our cupboards to see what we had for ingredients. Then I jumbled together a recipe from the only appropriate ingredients we had in the house: organic raw sugar, organic coconut oil and lemons. The proportions are roughly 2 cups of sugar, 1/4 cup of coconut oil and the juice of one large lemon.

The resulting scrub smells divine and works well. I prefer a citrus scent over a floral scent any day so I love how refreshing the lemon snells in the shower. It works too! The only flub I made was putting it in such a big jar. It was hard to fit my hand into the bottom of it as the scrub dwindled.

Yep, for a low-cost, healthy and easy (it takes less than 10 minutes to make) body scrub, this turned out pretty awesome. It’s not as good as Lori’s but it’s definitely a close second.
