We have been on a DIY Beauty kick lately! I love these easy to make recipes at home that also work wonders. It is also something somewhat inexpensive that my daughter and I can enjoy together. This Lemon Sugar Hand Scrub not only smells delicious, it will work wonders on softening your hands!
With spring coming up, I do quite a bit of gardening. This can be rough on your hands. With this easy to make hand scrub, you can help defeat those rough areas on your hands and help to keep them soft. You will need just a few simple ingredients including sugar, Epsom salts, your favorite essential oil, and almond oil.
For our recipe, we used Lemon Essential Oil but you can use your favorite essential oil variety – lavender, peppermint, grapefruit, lime…the possibilities are almost limitless. I personally used to buy all of my essential oils from a MLM but I really like the NOW oils and they are easier and quite a bit cheaper to purchase. I was able to pick up my almond oil at Meijer but if you don’t want to search, you can buy some on Amazon for a decent price.
For jars, I have used Talenti empty gelato containers for my own home use but you can find cute jars about anywhere if you want to make it pretty or give as a gift. I do like these jars with the hinged lids for gifts. You can also find plastic containers to buy as well, which would save a significant amount of money.
