Homemade Lemon And Lavender Hand Scrub

Hello friends. Today, I am sharing something a little different and fun with you all. It is an easy to make homemade lemon and lavender hand scrub which I promise will work wonders on your rough and dehydrated skin. I like using aromatic herbs and essentials oils for many things but these days, I especially love to use them for making my own beauty treatments.

Scrubs have many wonderful benefits.  They whisk away dead skin cells, resulting in brighter, more radiant skin.  They also improve the skin's absorption of other products such as moisturizers and oils. But more importantly, when combined with scented oils, they help to relax, soothe and calm.   And who doesn't need that these days right??

Homemade hand scrubs are inexpensive and very easy to make. Best of all, you can customize them. Whether you want to make them for yourself, or as gifts for friends or family, I hope you give this DIY project a try.

This 8 oz. glass canning jar is the perfect size if you want to make these for a gift.

Add fresh lavender and lavender oil and mix well.  If you prefer a thicker consistency, you can add more sugar.  Have fun with this.  You can use your favorite scented oil too if you do not care for lavender or you can simply make it with the lemon scent.  It is up to you.

Place scrub in individual jars and enjoy.  Be sure to wet skin before applying to your hands. You will love how soft and hydrated your skin will be. I suggest refrigerating the hand scrub if you will not be using it often and as always, if you have any skin allergies or sensitive skin, please check with your doctor before using this hand scrub.

    That is wonderful Shari. Thank you for visiting. I am sure they will be very happy with your homemade gift. It is fantastic.

    Be careful using sugar as a scrub on your face. jagged edges of sugar crystals will tear at your skin cells and disrupt your lipid barrier right quick, leaving you vulnerable to dryness and flakiness.

      Hello Mary,
      This scrub is meant for the hands. I do not recommend using for the face.

    Excellent idea - going to try it soon! It might also be nice to add a little plastic cosmetic spatula to tie onto the jar with a ribbon.
