Citrus Sugar Scrub Gift

Everyone seemed to enjoy my rosemary spearmint sugar scrub so much that I decided to share my summer favorite as well!  It’s refreshing for your senses and your feet!  It is a great shower favor, quick gift, treat for yourself or a hostess gift when you are welcomed to a friend’s beach house.  This jar will keep my skin happy all summer long!

Did I mention that you likely have all of the ingredients on hand?
Ingredients:
lemon, orange or 2 limes
oil – I chose vitamin E, but almond oil, grape seed oil or even olive oil will work!
sugar

Stir and add to your container.  I had this little canning jar left from my summer salad dressing and fleur de del caramel sauce, but you can purchase these or sealable spice jars.

Great for summer.  For winter, add a little cinnamon or clove !

    Just made this today. It smells good enough to eat. Though I was wondering how long the shelf life of this would be?

      Doesn’t it? It keeps for a couple months when stored in an air tight container.
