Anyway, I came across a tutorial/recipe for Lemon Sugar Scrub. Sounded easy and well worth it. After all, my hands look like they've been through a paint battlefield from painting all day yesterday and I had all the ingredients on hand.
So I set to work. You'll need 2 1/2 cup of sugar, 1 cup of extra virgin olive oil, and 4 tablespoons of lemon juice. That's it! Oh, and a mason jar or really any jar to stick the scrub in when you're done.
First, you need to mix the sugar and olive oil until it's sort of chunky, like so.

Eat it, I mean. I wouldn't taste good (I would think).
All that's left is to spoon it into the jar, print out a label (which you can find on the original tutorial), tie it to the jar, and viola! You're done and have your own lemon sugar scrub to keep by the sink for your dry, crafty hands!
|I spray painted the lid of my jar with Rustoleum's oil|
rubbed bronze paint to jazz it up a bit.
Stephanie's blog has a few more hand/body scrub recipes that I'm looking forward to trying, too, like the Vanilla Brown Sugar Scrub. Yum!
