  • Homemade lemon sugar scrub -such a great gift idea! Makes your hands so soft!

    Happy Spring, fellow I Heart Nap Time lovers! Talitha here. I’m thrilled to be back with you this month sharing another amazing and simple DIY gift idea! I know that mother’s day is still a little ways away but it never hurts to think about these things early. Am I right!? This wonderful Lemon Sugar Scrub is great not just for the mothers in your life, but also works great as a gift for your kiddo’s teacher or even as a little pampering gift to yourself.

    By the time spring rolls around, my hands and feet are always incredibly dry from the cold winter months. This sugar scrub will help combat that! Plus it only takes about 10 minutes to make! And I swear that it is just as luxurious, if not more so, than the expensive scrubs you find in the store.

    Lemon sugar scrub ingredients:

    • 2 1/2 cups granulated sugar; divided
    • 1/4 cup coconut oil (almond oil will also work)

    Lemon Sugar Scrub Recipe

    Yield: 2.5 cups

    • 2 1/2 cups granulated sugar; divided
    • 1/4 cup coconut oil (almond oil will also work)
    • 10-15 drops lemon natural oils
    • lemon (optional)

    Put sugar in a large bowl. Set aside. Measure out 1/4 cup of coconut oil and place it in a microwave safe bowl. Heat coconut oil in the microwave for about 30 seconds, or until the oil is melted. Pour oil over sugar and mix to combine. Add in lemon drops. If desired, add lemon zest for extra color and scent. Using a zester or small grater, zest the rind of 1 lemon. Stir to combine.

    If sugar scrub is still too “wet”, add up to 1/4 cup more sugar until desired consistency is reached.

    Then grab a little jar of some sort. I always have a few mason jars on hand. I whipped up a few labels and printed them off on label paper and cut them out. And since I’m so nice, I wanted to make them available to you too!

    And, of course, you have to be a good gift giver and test it out before you give it away, right?? Just take about 1 teaspoon in your hand and scrub away! When you are done scrubbing, rinse thoroughly. The lemon gives off a wonderfully clean scent, the coconut oil helps to moisturize your skin, and the sugar helps to exfoliate!

    This is a great gift for all those special women in your life. Or even as a gift to yourself! So go ahead, treat yourself! Make up 2 batches!
