Hello friends. Today, I am sharing something a little different and fun with you all. It is an easy to make homemade lemon and lavender hand/body scrub which I promise will work wonders on your rough and dehydrated skin. I like using aromatic herbs and essentials oils for many things but these days, I especially love to use them for making my own beauty treatments
Scrubs have many wonderful benefits. They whisk away dead skin cells, resulting in brighter, more radiant skin. They also improve the skin's absorption of other products such as moisturizers and oils. But more importantly, when combined with scented oils, they help to relax, soothe and calm. And who doesn't need that these days right??
Homemade scrubs are inexpensive and very easy to make. Best of all, you can customize them. Whether you want to make them for yourself, or as gifts for friends or family, I hope you give this DIY project a try.
Here is what you need:
- 1 Cup of granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon honey
- Juice of half a lemon
- Lemon zest (half a lemon)
- 1/4 cup of olive oil
- 10 drops of lavender essential oil
- 1 teaspoon of lavender (chopped-really fine)
- Mixing bowl
- Small grater
- Mason Jar for storing
Place honey and olive oil in mixing bowl
Add fresh lemon juice and lemon zest
Add sugar and mix
Add fresh lavender and lavender oil and mix well. If you prefer a thicker consistency, you can add more sugar. Have fun with this. You can use your favorite scented oil too if you do not care for lavender or you can simply make it with the lemon scent. It is up to you.
Place scrub in individual jars and enjoy. Be sure to wet skin before applying to your hands or body.You will love how soft and hydrated your skin will feel.
