HomeMade: Lemon Sugar Hand Scrub! Great for those Dry Winter Hands and Gets Rid of Smells too!

lemon-sugar-scrub-3wm_thumb3 I’m pretty sure that I have the driest hands on the face of this earth. Of course much of my problem is probably self inflicted! I never drink enough water and I am constantly using hand sanitizer which dries my hands out something horrible! So today I have a wonderful recipe for getting rid of those dry/chapped hands. Remember to use a container with a lid that seals and if you make a pretty enough container and add a note card you can have a pretty inexpensive gift!!

Lemon Sugar Hand Scrub


  • 2 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons of lemon juice (or any essential oil that you like)


  • Begin by putting the sugar in a bowl
  • add in 1 cup extra virgin olive oil (or oil of choice)
  • then add in the lemon juice (or essential oil)
  • Mix until a grainy paste forms
  • spoon into your jar

You should have enough lemon sugar hand scrub to fill a 12 oz jar and even have enough to soften your hands when your finished!! I hope you enjoyed today’s recipe. For more homemade recipes please click here.
