I love a nice body scrub. What I don’t like are ingredients I can’t pronounce nor easily identify. I do love some fresh scents- and citrus is one of the scents I love best. It’s energizing, it’s refreshing, and not to “girly” for the men in my house. We had a Mom’s Club playdate this week and made DIY Energizing Citrus Hand & Body Scrub for all of us to bring home- super simple, and 100% customizable! I have one of these up in the bathroom for showers, and another by the kitchen sink for hand washing- it’s been working great for keeping food odors away!
What you need:
6 cups granulated sugar
2 cups olive oil
6-8 TBSP Lemon Juice
Zest of 1 lemon
Zest of 1 orange
Lemon Extract or Essential Oil (I use Nielsen Massey Pure Lemon Extract) (To scent preference)
Orange Extract or Essential Oil (I use the Nielsen Massey Pure Orange Extract) (To scent preference)
What you do:
Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Put into containers. You can be fancy or basic here- it’s up to you. These would make a cute gift in a nice little glass jar or tin with a ribbon, but will work the same in a plastic container that you already have in the house. We did mason jars because we had some.
Jenni found the Lemon Sugar Scrub Recipe on Seven Clown Circus via Pinterest– we just changed it up a bit.
