Lemon Sugar Hand Scrub Tutorial

Lemon Sugar Hand Scrub Tutorial by Butterfly Crafts Handmade Emporium

With Christmas fast approaching you may be thinking about last minute Christmas gifts or how to keep to a budget with your shopping. Handmade gifts are so personal and show the recipient you care about them. This is a simple tutorial to make a Lemon Sugar Hand Scrub which would make a super gift for someone who loves gardening.

To make this lemon sugar scrub you will need 2.5cups of granulated sugar, 1 cup of extra virgin olive all and 4 tablespoons of lemon juice – that’s it!

In a bowl, mix the sugar with the olive oil using a metal spoon, it will take quite some stirring but will eventually become a gritty paste. Then add in the lemon juice and mix thoroughly. Once the scrub is all mixed together transfer it to a jar with an airtight lid. I used 0.5L jars from Ikea but any jar would do.

I find it a good idea to keep the jar with a spoon so that it can be stirred before use and making it a little easy to scoop into your hands.

Both Mum and my sister in law are keen gardeners and I think this scrub would make a great gift for them at Christmas, tied with a ribbon and with a spoon.
