DIY Lemon Sugar Scrub


How are you today? In case you don’t know, I love DIY. Well, I don’t really love it. If I had tons of money, I might not be as handy but that’s not the case so I’ve learned to do a lot of things myself in an effort to save money and I learned to enjoy it along the way. So today I’m sharing the sugar scrub I like to make. Its super easy (otherwise I wouldn’t make it, haha) and it makes your skin so soft which is perfect around this time of year. Right?




1 cup of organic coconut oil

1 cup of organic sugar

15-20 drops of lemon essential oil ( or the essential oil of your choice)


Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl. You can use a mixer if you have one. I used my little $6 handheld mixer from Target and it worked just fine. I’m sure a nice kitchen-aid mixer would work great too. However, a mixer is not necessary. I have simply mixed with a spoon before.

Next, spoon mixture into a container. I like to use a wide-mouth mason jar as pictured here.IMG_7744

This will make your skin super soft and smooth and it smells like lemon sugar cookies in the shower. Yum! My daughter will request I make more when we run out. My husband also comments on how smooth my skin is when I use it 🙂

There you have it. An all natural easy way to softer skin.
