Lemon Hand Scrub

www.polkadotpoplars.com

Washing dishes, laundry, cooking and cleaning play havoc on my hands. How about yours? I feel like I’m always fighting to keep my hands moisturized. Here’s an awesome sugar scrub that I use for my hands that not only removes dry skin, but moisturizes at the same time. I like to use it right after I was dishes while my hands are moist. This also makes a great gift, too.

2 Tbl. Coconut Oil

1 Cup Sugar

1 tsp. Lemon Zest

Few drops of lemon oil (can also use lemon extract)

Soften the coconut oil in the microwave for about 10 seconds. Do not melt. Add in sugar, zest, and lemon oil and mix together well. Place in a jar or container to keep it fresh. This will stay fresh out of the fridge for two weeks.

To use: Gently rub a few teaspoons of the scrub on your hands for about a minute.  Rinse in warm water. Dry.
