Lime Sugar Scrub — four ingredients and five minutes is all you need to make this fabulous sugar scrub. It will leave your skin so soft!
Have you ever used sugar scrub before? I tried it for the first time a few weeks ago, and now I am hooked! During the winter months, my skin is always dry and itchy. Using sugar scrub in the shower every day has made a huge difference. I just love the way it makes my skin feel!
I made a batch of cucumber mint sugar scrub for my first batch, and I shared that recipe over at I Heart Naptime. This time around I used lime, because I just adore the scent of limes. So fresh and invigorating!
This stuff is so easy to make — you just stir together some coconut oil, sugar, lime zest, and essential oil. You can make a double batch and put one jar by the kitchen sink to use as a hand scrub, and the other jar in the bathroom to use as a daily shower scrub. No more flaky skin!
This lime sugar scrub makes a great last minute gift! You can literally put it together in about five minutes. And who doesn’t love a homemade gift? Just scoop it into a cute little mason jar, add the free printable tag and you’re good to go!
