Lemon Sugar Scrub

This lemon sugar scrub is really easy to make, leaves your hands feeling really soft, and makes a great gift. It would make a great Mother's Day gift. The recipe below fills two 12 ounce mason jars, and I had some leftover to fill a wide mouth 8 ounce mason jar.
All you need is three simple ingredients that you probably already have on hand. 5 cups of sugar, 1 3/4 cups of olive oil, and the juice of two large lemons (about 8 tablespoons). 
Pour all three ingredients into a large mixing bowl.
 Mix until it looks something like this. Then spoon into your mason jars or another container that has a tight fitting lid.
 I created labels for the sugar scrub using 2" and 1.5" craft punches, scrapbook paper, card stock, yarn, double stick tape, and a hole punch. I found the original recipe for this lemon sugar scrub on Tip Junkie by Stephanie Lynn and you can find lots of other cute gifts in a jar here.


  1. Does it go bad? Would you need to refrigerate it?

    It does not need to be refrigerated, and can be stored in a cool place, out of direct sun-light (like you would with olive oil). Jars should last a long time, just be sure to seal it properly and clean jar before filling.


I'd love to hear from you!
