Summer's here, so it's the perfect time to sit outside and sip iced tea or lemonade. I prefer pink lemonade, so that's what we usually have on hand. Pink lemonade always reminds me of summer, and I always need a good hand scrub in the summer. We plant a large garden--over an acre!--so my hands tend to get quite dirty. I use a scrub to clean them after working in the dirt. The clay in our soil is wonderful for our garden, but it's not so great for my hands. This pink lemonade hand scrub will moisturize as it cleans for soft, smooth hands. The added melt and pour soap also keeps your hands from getting excessively oily, and it also helps remove more dirt and grime.
Pink Lemonade Sugar Scrub Recipe
What You Need
- 6 ounces white sugar
- 2 ounces melt and pour soap
- 2 ounces carrier oil (I used grapeseed oil)
- 20 drops pink lemonade fragrance oil
- Mason jar
- Pyrex measuring cup
- Cut the soap in to small 1" cubes and microwave in the Pyrex measuring cup at 30 second intervals until melted. Let cool slightly so the hot soap doesn't dissolve the sugar.
- Combine the sugar, melted soap, and grapeseed oil.
- Add fragrance oil and stir well.
- Pour in to a wide mouth mason jar.
To use, scoop about 1/4 cup in to your hands and work it around to scrub off dirt and soil. Rinse well and pat your hands dry. The soap in this recipe will cut down on the oil, and the grapeseed oil is more of a dry oil. If you use almond oil or olive oil, you may want to wash your hands after using this scrub. If you can, let the oil sit on your hands to moisturize your skin.
