My sister just had a birthday (happy birthday little sista)! As a special present for her birthday I wanted to make her a foot scrub we recently received as a favor at our cousin’s wedding shower. My sister was so disappointed she used up all her scrub so fast. I thought what a better gift then to surprise her with a huge homemade batch. The original recipe made a small batch so I quadrupled it and added one of my favorite ingredients pure vanilla extract for an additional pinch of love. For the original recipe check out DIY lemon sugar scrub.
You will need one quart sized mason jar.
1 cup of Coconut Oil
1 cup fresh lemon juice (about 4 large lemons)
4 1/2 cups of granulated sugar
1 TB pure vanilla extract
The zest of 4 lemons
Zest 4 lemons with microplaner and set zest aside.
Juice the lemons and place juice & 3/4 of the zest in a medium to large bowl and coconut oil. Mix with whisk to blend coconut oil lemon together.
Add sugar and whisk together until you reach your desired consistency.
Add more sugar if you want a thicker consistency or more coconut oil if you want a thinner scrub.
Add vanilla extract and whisk.
Whisk until vanilla is incorporated throughout.
Funnel into quart size (4 cup) mason jar. Top with remaining lemon zest for an extra flare. Place mason jar lid on top of rim and ring on to seal the vessel.
Attach recipe on recipe card for replication.
