I don't know about you, but my hands get ridiculously dry this time of year. This homemade sugar scrub is a great solution that you can make yourself in no time. You probably have everything you need already on hand.
Let's get started. Gather your ingredients:
Orange (or lemon) zest
A small, empty jar (I used an empty sauce jar. If the adhesive is really stubborn, try removing it with Simple Green)
First, I poured enough sugar in my jar to fill it. Then, I dumped it in a small mixing bowl, added about 1/3 cup of olive oil and some orange zest. I mixed it all up, then put it back in my jar. So easy!
I really didn't measure anything, but you'll know when it looks right. The mixture should look like wet sand when it's done.
To make it look extra cute and personal, I tied a ribbon around the top and made a label for the front.
Your hands will feel so nice after using this! The sugar exfoliates, the olive oil moisturizes, and the orange smells delicious!
Treat yourself and make this now! Or make one to give as a gift...wouldn't that be adorable and so personal?
I hope you try this and like it as much as I do.
