lemon sugar scrub

at this time of year everyone needs a lift.  for a fraction of what you would pay in stores you can make your own lemon sugar scrub.  a foamy, vibrantly scented sugar scrub for the body.  it lathers up for gentle and supremely sudsy, smoothing, softening skin cleansing and exfoliating with an a-"peel"-ing fragrance!

juice of 2 lemons             
2 Tbs olive oil
2 Tbs of liquid soap
1 to 1 1/2 cups of sugar

juice lemons into a medium bowl.  add the olive oil and liquid soap. mix until
creamy.  add sugar a little at a time until it is thick and grainy.  pour into small
jars.  stores up to 2 months.

apply a handful to damp skin and scrub in circular motions until you are polished to perfection. rinse. use one to three times per week.

package up and give to the ones you love.  perfect gift for valentine's day. 


if you prefer ALL organic beauty recipes, here is the organic version of my lemon scrub
1/4 cup of sugar in the raw (raw all-natural sugar)
1/2 cup of organic white sugar
1 grated lemon peel- From an organic lemon
the juice from 1 organic lemon (about 4 Tbsp)
2-4 Tbsp of organic olive oil
