Crafty Today: Lemony Hand Scrub

Lemony Hand Scrub

Lemony Hand Scrub

Our neighbors are delightful and very friendly.  Every Christmas we receive a stockpile of delicious handmade treats from our neighbors.  This year, I wanted to continue with the handmade theme, but make something that was useful and practical.  I found this recipe from Gorgeously Green and then added my own creative touches to make it appropriate for Christmas giving.

Lemony Hand Scrub

  • 1/3 c oil (I used grapeseed oil, but olive and almond will work too)
  • 2/3 c sea salt
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 10 drops lavender essential oil

Combine the ingredients in a large bowl.  If giving as gifts, separate into smaller jars.

The small jars came from World Market and cost 99 cents.  I went to Stats, our local independent craft store, to purchase the pine cones.  The leaf pins are from Maya Road and I purchased them online.  I had the ribbon on hand and made the tags from scratch.  I created the small tag in Word then punched it out with this punch.  I tied the ribbon then tucked the tag underneath, added the leaf pin and hot glued the pine cone to the knot of the ribbon.  Voila!

Happy crafting!
