Honey and Lemon Body Scrub DIY

I love honey and lemon body scrub DIY. Not only does it exfoliate and leave skin radiant but it also leaves you feeling invigorated and smelling wonderful.

What could make a better gift?

Body scrubs can be expensive but I bet you have just what you need right there in your kitchen. It is cheap, simple and speedy to zip up a body scrub to give yourself, or someone you, love  a treat. And there is nothing quite like a handmade gift is there.

All you need to make this lemon body scrub is…

8 tbsp (4oz) granulated sugar, 1 tbsp honey, 1/2 a lemon, 1 tbsp olive oil & a small glass jar with a lid

(scale up as required!)

  1. Combine the lemon juice and olive oil in a bowl
  2. Add the honey and stir
  3. Add the sugar and mix well (add more if you prefer it to be coarser and less runny…keep adding till you are happy with the consistency)
  4. Spoon into the jar and seal

    I need to be super thrifty when it comes to Christmas this year – so pinned and I’ll definitely be back to make some of this as gifts. And maybe a bit for me to pamper myself too! 🙂
