I keep seeing this mentioned all over the net and when I came in from the garden this morning with grubby hands (that are also very dry at present) I decided to make some.
I have never tried sugar scrubs thinking they weren’t really my thing – I think I was mistaken. This is so nice to use I think I may have to find a body one for use in the bath!! It leaves hands soft and cleans very gently.
I got the recipe from http://adashofdomestic.wordpress.com/2011/11/30/lemon-sugar-hand-scrub/. It’s very simple to make, only takes a few minutes. A Dash of Domestic has a link to an original recipe made for Mother’s Day, in beautifully presented jars and this would make a nice wee gift for someone.
21/2 cups white sugar
1 cup olive oil
4 tablespoons lemon juice
Finely grated lemon zest (I used about 1 teaspoon full)
Mix all together well in a bowl using a metal spoon. Makes a 12 oz jar.
