Lemon Sugar and Salt Scrub

If lemon oil is unavailable, use grapeseed or olive oil instead. The amount of lemon essential oil used, depends on your personal preference. You can always add more if you like a stronger scent.

Materials

For the scrub

  • 200 g (1 cup) granulated sugar
  • 140 g (1/2 cup) coarse salt (e.g. pretzel salt or sea salt)
  • 5 g (1/2 tbsp) dried lemon peel
  • 20 ml (1 1/2 tbsp) lemon oil
  • 15 g (1 tbsp) coconut oil
  • 15 – 20 drops lemon essential oil
  • yellow gel paste food colouring or soap colourant (optional)

 

For packaging

  • glass jars with a lid
  • printable labels (download below)
  • ribbon

Instructions

1) Mix the sugar and salt
Place the sugar, salt, and lemon peel into a large mixing bowl and stir until blended.

 

2) Add the oils
Add the lemon oil, coconut oil, and lemon essential oil. Knead until well blended, and the sugar-salt mixture is completely coated.

 

3) Colour the scrub
Using a cocktail stick (toothpick), pick up a small amount of yellow gel paste food colouring or soap colourant and stir into the mix until the scrub is evenly tinted. Keep in mind that food or soap colours are highly concentrated so a small amount might be enough for colouring. This step is optional.

Difficulty: easy

Materials: essential oil

How to use the lemon sugar and salt scrub

The lemon sugar and salt scrub is perfect for exfoliating and will leave you with smooth skin. Wet and soften your skin in the shower with warm water for a couple of minutes. Apply the scrub in a circular motion and stop the water while exfoliating. Then wash off and continue with regular skin care. You can use the scrub on your entire body but the face.
