This Lemon Coconut Homemade Sugar Scrub is so simple to make, and it makes my hands feel so soft. Plus, it’s a lot less expensive than store-bought skin moisturizers and exfoliating products. And this would make a great gift for Mother’s Day, which is coming up soon. Here’s what you need:
Lemon Coconut Homemade Sugar Scrub:
- 2 cups sugar
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 1/2 fresh lemon
1. Place the sugar in a medium bowl.
2. Measure out 1/4 cup coconut oil, heat until melted but not too hot. Just a few seconds is all that’s needed. Pour oil over sugar and mix together.
3. Squeeze half of a lemon into the mixture and mix together. You could also substitute the fresh lemon for an essential oil if you want a different scent.
4. Place your sugar scrub in a mason jar to store.
To use the sugar scrub, scoop out a spoonful and rub it on your hands. The oil moisturizes your hands while the sugar exfoliates. Rinse your hands off with cool water.
