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.
