Here’s a great gift that won’t break the bank and is also fun to make: Mother’s Day Lemon Scrub. Perfect to pamper your mom with!
1/4 cup olive oil, grapeseed oil, or coconut oil (the 3 types of oil I have hanging around my cupboards, but just about any oil will do)
1/2 cup sugar
zest of 2 lemons
optional: 1 small handful mint leaves, julienned and/or 8 – 12 drops peppermint essential oil
Add oil to dry sugar in bowl. Stir well until sugar is hydrated in oil but still nice and thick. Zest the lemon into mixture. Add mint leaves (optional) and/or 8-12 drops peppermint essential oil (optional).
Scoop mixture in jar. Find a unique one at your local craft store or just clean out an old jam jar.
Perfect to exfoliate and moisturize skin while cooling gently! Great garden aroma. Great as a foot scrub too!
