Mother’s Day Gift: Lemon Sugar Scrub

Lemon Sugar Scrub

A couple days ago, I found a really cool website called Amy has a ton of good recipe ideas that I want to try, but I decided to make Amy’s Meyer Lemon Sugar Scrub for Mother’s Day gifts this weekend.  I know that by posting this recipe, my Mom will probably find out about her Mother’s Day gift ahead of time, but I had to share this anyway! I didn’t have Meyer lemons for the scrub, so I used regular lemons instead. It turned out perfect!

Lemon Sugar Scrub
Makes 1 cup

1 cup granulated sugar
Zest of 2 lemons
2 Tablespoons coconut oil (room temp – not melted)
1 Tablespoon olive oil

  1. Zest the lemons with a small to medium sized zester.
  2. Stir the zest into the sugar until mixed.
  3. Add the oils to the sugar and mix again until well blended.
  4. Put into jars and decorate. Enjoy!

  1. I’m just wondering how this smells. I just tried some a few weeks ago with sugar, olive oil and lemon juice. It feels fantastic, but the olive oil is SO over-powering. Does this recipe smell more pleasant?

    • This scrub does smell pretty good. Most of the oil is coconut oil, which has a very light scent. You could probably replace the olive oil with more coconut oil, or you could use a lighter tasting (and lighter smelling) olive oil.
