Lemon Hand Scrub

One day when I was on another blog I saw a post about a hand scrub. I then went to Pinterest and looked it up to see if it was there. Sure enough there was a recipe for a lemon hand scrub. I thought that it sounded pretty good so I tried it out. I made some up, used it and found that my hands felt so soft after. I suffer from eczema on my hands and it always gets worse in the wintertime and the change of seasons. Right now, my hands feel smoother than a babies butt 🙂


You will need 2 1/2 cups of sugar.


1 cup extra virgin olive oil.


2 Tablespoons of lemon peal.


4 Tablespoons of lemon juice concentrate or juice from a fresh lemon. Mix until smooth.


Store in a container and keep near your sink. I made some to give for gifts as well. There are instructions for using it and I made a label for the top of the jar giving the way to use it.

This stuff works great and my hands are loving it!
