homemade lemon sugar body scrub

DSCN2821So with my wedding coming up in less than one week (aaaaaah!! SooOooOoo exciting) I wanted to do something nice for my bridesmaids. When I was choosing bridesmaids, I had a hard time lowering it down to just a few of my friends, because I just love so many of those beautiful girls. Soooo, I just chose 11 bridesmaids. Problem solved.

After doing some Pinterest research, my favorite kind of research these days, I found a delicious looking recipe for body scrub. So, I made a GIANT batch of it and gave them to my bridesmaids. And yes, I made one for myself as well. It works wonders and smells so good, I caught my mom licking her finger, despite the decent amount of soap in the recipe.

lemon sugar body scrub

ingredients (to make a single-serving for one person)

  • 1 lemon
  • 1 and a half cups granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil.
    *note: if you’re doing a giant batch like I did, this can get expensive, so I substituted some olive oil along with the coconut oil.
  • 1 tablespoon unscented liquid soap (Cetaphil works great)
  • Some kind of mason jar to store the scrub in


  1. Zest and juice the lemon. Make sure to remove any seeds that sneak their way in and combine both the zest and juice in a bowl.

  2. Add the coconut (or olive oil) and the soap and stir together.


  3. Add all of the sugar and stir until combined.
  4. Pour into container.
    *note: this scrub will separate after awhile. Before you use it, take a metal spoon and stir it up very well until it’s all mixed together.I used this scrub on my face and hands, and they were baby-bum soft after. I tied it up with a ribbon and wrote a note for each girl. I love all my girlies!
