Homemade Lemon Scrub, DIY Christmas Gift Idea

It all started when I posted this pic on my Facebook page. People have been commenting and mailing me asking about the recipe. Thanks everyone for this response, as promised here goes the recipe.

Homemade Lemon Scrub is a great DIY with little ingredients that are probably already available in your kitchen. If you haven’t decided about Christmas gift then hey, this is an awesome personalize gift for your friends and family. I gave it to my friend and she says she is addicted and the whole bathing experience was amazing. Every woman is going to love this scrub :)

2 cups sugar
Lemon zest from 1 lemon
1 tablespoon Lemon juice
5 tablespoons almond oil
1 drop of lemon essence/oil (optional)

Mix everything together. Stir well.
Keep in any jar or tub and let it sit untouched for atleast 1 hour.

How to use:
Scoop out the scrub with clean spoon or wooden stick and apply on wet skin.
Massage in circular motion till sugar dissolves. Rinse off.

Sugar and zest helps to exfoliate the skin and removes dead skin. 
Improves blood circulation and gives healthy glow to the skin.
Oil moisturizes the skin and makes skin soft and supple.
Lemon removes the tan and dark spots and blemishes.

You can also use olive oil or coconut oil.
Any kind of sugar will do, I used brown sugar.
Make sure that jar is clean.
Lemon essence is optional. I used this one.
Make a small batch first and see how it suits your skin.


  1. Looks really good must smell like lemom paradise!!

  2. wont the sugar dissolve or start to dissolve due to wetness from lemon zest and lemon juice ??

    1. It wont because the amount of sugar is more compared to wet ingredients. You will get semi wet mix, just like store bought scrubs :) Try it Niru

  3. How long does it stay good? I was to ask if oilive oil can be used and found in the notes... nice scrub...love lemons!!!

    1. 3 weeks :) Dont use wet fingers when you scoop out the scrub :)
      Try it :)
