Lemon Sugar Scrub (best DIY Gift!)

Buying Christmas gift for my big guy is never an easy task for me, he seems to have everything he needs (and a lot more that he really doesn't!). After scratching my head looking around in the malls for what to buy, finally I decided to make one for him. The Lemon Sugar Scrub for Hands & Feet!

Since I have a tub of Virginia coconut oil that had been sitting idle in my kitchen for over a year, it came handy. VCO is said to be good for skin and hair (even suitable for sensitive skin), and many other benefits which you can google it on the net, however I really dislike the taste and the oily nature, so using it for scrub? Perfect.

Making is simple, you just need 3 ingredients:

• 1 cup of coarse sugar
• 1 table spoon of virgin coconut oil (or almond oil)
• Few drops of lemon essential oil (or in my case I used lemon juice + zest)

Just mix all ingredients together until well mix. If it's too wet, add a bit more sugar.

Find a nice glass jar, add a label and ta-da, you have a jar of beautifully scented sugar scrub. Used it for yourself or as a gift for your loved ones. I tried it on my hands and feet, love the smoothness after scrub! However I would not recommend to use this for the body as it may be a bit too rough.

I got the ideal from the Ideal Room, she has a lot more recipes so do check out her website for more ideas..

Happy holiday! ;)
