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?
lemon, orange or 2 limes
oil – I chose vitamin E, but almond oil, grape seed oil or even olive oil will work!

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.
