diy energizing citrus hand and body scrub

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.

  • I’ve been looking for an easy DIY scrub that doesnt call for a ton of expensive ingredients. This seems to be just what I needed! Totally gonna try this soon!

  • This sounds super easy to make. I’ve got a store bought sugar scrub in my shower that I don’t really care for only because you don’t get any lather with it, but I never thought of using it as a hand cleanser. This citrus recipe would probably be great for scrubbing off the scent of garlic and onions on one’s hands when done with cooking. Thanks for sharing.
