Sugar scrubs are quite exfoliating and moisturizing to the skin. Scrubs can be applied to most areas of the body and are especially beneficial to the hands and feet. Use 1 tablespoon as needed. To smooth rough areas gently press the sugar granules in the body scrub in a circular motion and rinse.

- 4 oz mason jars (or other airtight containers)
- 1 1/2 cup granulated sugar

How to make Lemon Lavender Sugar Scrub:
In a small bowl mix the olive oil, vitamin E oil, and sugar together. Blend in 8 drops of lavender essential oil.
Next, zest the lemon rind until only white it remaining on the outside of the lemon. Add the zest to the sugar and oil mixture.
Roll the lemon firmly on a cutting board to burst the juice capsules. Cut the lemon in half and squeeze over the mixture. Stir to combine. Add lavender buds and use a fork or spatula to blend and mash to create a body scrub.
