Pink Lemonade Sugar Scrub

I made my first homemade body scrub a little over a year ago. I prepared, packaged and gave my chocolate martini body scrub to all my girlfriends at our annual Christmas party. After seeing how easy and economical it was to make, I’ve been looking forward to making more.  You can find my first homemade scrub here.

When I decided to participate in the homemade beauty and household products showcase, I knew just what I wanted to make – another body scrub.

And since Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, I decided to create a pink lemonade sugar scrub and package it in a heart shaped bottle. It turned out exactly like I wanted it to and smells just like a big bag of fresh lemons.

My Pink Lemonade Sugar Scrub can be used as an all over body scrub or use it to soften your hands.   I like to mix a little with my body wash in the shower.  pinklemonade




Here’s what you will need to make my Pink Lemonade Sugar Scrub:

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil (melted in the microwave and cooled)
  • 10-12 drops lemon essential oil
  • 2-3 drops of red natural all vegetable colorant

Mix all by hand until mixed well and color is uniform.  Package as desired.
