If there is a scent that always, always, always makes me happy, it is fresh squeezed lemons! Those bright yellow fruits just scream, “Cheer up! Life is short! You’ve got me, now make lemonade!” So, partner my favorite cheery citrus with perk-me-up peppermint and you have one heavenly combo! So cue the angels, because you are going to LOVE this easy, DIY uplifting lemon mint sugar scrub!
Now, true story, I LOVE anything scrubby! Foot scrubs, face scrubs, hand scrubs, scrubby bath sponges … well, everything except my hubby I shared a recipe for brown sugar oatmeal scrub with you a while ago, and that scrub is perfect for cold winter months. But it is SPRING and I wanted fresh and bright, lemon and mint! Both lemon and peppermint are both scents that lift your mood and promote a sense of well being, so this scrub is a staple in my morning shower.
Make DIY uplifting lemon mint sugar scrub: In a bowl, mix together 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar, 1/2 cup coconut oil, 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, zest from 1/2 lemon, 5 drops of Young Living Peppermint Essential Oil and 5 drops of Young Living Lemon Essential Oil. The sugar and lemon juice and zest gently sloughs off dry skin, the coconut oil moisturizes and lemon and peppermint provide a mood boost.
This recipe filled three of my 4 oz. quilted mason jars – which is absolutely PERFECT for gift giving! Since it is quick and easy to make a batch of this lemon mint sugar scrub, it is great to have on hand for last minute gifts – I ran one next door to our neighbor on Easter, just because.
You may know by now, but I am partial to Young Living Essential Oils. They are 100% pure and therapeutic grade; that means they are SO much more than just fragrance! I use lemon, lavender and peppermint in my diffuser to combat our seasonal allergies. I’ve been using lavender for all our bumps and bruises and even the swelling on my feet! I am going to make my own hand soap with Thieves and I am working on another DIY that will replace a chemical laden spray in our home … can’t wait to share it with you!
