14 Days of Valentines: Day 9 Love Those Hands Sugar Scrub

It's day 9 of 14 Days of Valentines, a countdown to Valentine's Day one craft at a time.

After all this crafting, my hands are beat!  It's time to show these creative geniuses some love.  This Lemon Sugar Scrub is the perfect cure to get my hands back to perfection (Minus the lack of fingernails.  Sadly, I'm back to my ol' biting habit.) Making your own sugar scrub is inexpensive, incredibly simple and it gives you the same beautifully soft results (without any harmful chemicals), so you won't have to make those wildly expensive beauty purchases anymore...well, at least in the sugar scrub department.

Lemon Sugar Scrub Ingredients:
  • 2 cups Sugar
  • 1 cup Olive Oil
  • 4 tbsp Lemon Juice (or you could use an essential oil)
Mix all ingredients together and store in your desired container.  Mine is a vintage Le Parfait french canning jar.  Yep, a goodwill find!

Day 9 down, 5 to go!



  1. Can't wait to make this scrub! Not only will it smell yummy, but lemon juice works great for cleaning stains from your hands after gardening. =D

  2. Mmmm, you can eat it too! jk

  3. OOO I wanna make this!
