I don’t know what it is, but when springtime rolls around, I all of a sudden want to make body scrubs and lotions. Maybe it is because winter has done a toll on my skin or maybe I am just ready to show some skin with the warmer (not too far off!) months ahead.
I recently purchased some fresh ginger for a yummy stir-fry recipe that I made the other day (turned out SO good and recipe coming soon!) and I had a ton of leftover ginger. What was I to do with it? I froze some for later use in recipes, but I also had my daughter grate some so we could use some in a ginger and lemon sugar scrub recipe!
It turned out so yummy smelling and oh, my goodness, it makes our skin SO soft. That is exactly what we wanted and we definitely achieved it! Making your own ginger and lemon sugar scrub has never been easier!
First of all, I love the smell of ginger. Plus, it is said to help fight cellulite!! That is really all I need to hear! So, adding it to a homemade body scrub to use in the shower and bath made sense to me!
Why Lemon Essential Oil?
I love the scent of lemon too. It smells so fresh and citrusy and makes me feel happy! Plus, I love adding Essential Oils to any homemade body scrubs and beauty products (and more!) because I love what they can do for me and my family.
It is so simple to make your own body scrubs and products and my daughter and I love to make them. That way, we KNOW what is in our products and we know what we are putting on our bodies! It is also a great bonding time for my daughter and I!
