What you need:
- White sugar
- Mason jar
- Coconut oil
- White sugar is for exfoliation.
- Coconut oil is for moisturizing.
- Lemon is good for skin.
If the ingredients are complete, then let us begin. Slice your lemons in half and squeeze all the juice from the lemon into a bowl. For the juice to come out easier, heat up the lemon. If you have a juicer, then you can also use that. After you have extracted the juice, remove the seeds from the bowl.
Next, you will measure how much white sugar you need by pouring it first into the mason jar. After that, add it into the bowl of lemon juice. Stir until you achieve a thick yet liquefied mixture.
Grab the coconut oil. Coconut oil hardens when cold, soft when in room temperature and liquid when heated up. So keep the coconut oil in room temperature, and scoop about 2 and a half tablespoon. Add into the sugar-lemon mixture.
Use the spoon to gradually mix the oil. Make sure not to stir fast as you will make the oil clumpy. Mix until the oil blends well with the sugar and lemon zest. Add some more white sugar to give the scrub a thicker texture. Stir.
Finally, when the scrub is thick enough, put it into the mason jar for packaging. Seal tightly.
