Lemon & Honey Hand & Body Scrub

  • 2 min read

Lemon and Vanilla Essential Oils in hand and body scrub with honey

When brainstorming up a new and different scrub for this week we knew we wanted to use honey. Honey is naturally antibacterial (source) as well as moisturizing and a great choice as an ingredient in DIYs if you suffer from dry skin.

Today's recipe is a luxurious scrub using this powerful natural ingredient along with our Fractionated Coconut Oil, Lemon essential oil and Vanilla Absolute as well as organic sugar and lemon.

Using lemon juice on your skin can help to diminish scars and age spots, can even aid in the process of healing acne, AND is a natural exfoliant (source).  You can use just the juice from the lemon, but we like to add the zest into the mix! With additional benefits from Lemon essential oil and Vanilla Absolute, this is a homemade scrub you’re going to want to try! 

-Lemon essential oil has a light, fresh citrus scent. We love its uplifting and energizing aroma, and its astringent and healing qualities.

-Vanilla Absolute has a sweet, warm, honey-like fragrance and is known for its calming and mood-enhancing properties. Adding Vanilla really ups the “creamy-ness” of the final aroma of this recipe.

To make this DIY body scrub, you’ll need…

1 cup sugar

2 Tbsp Fractionated Coconut Oil

1 lemon 

2 Tbsp honey (we are using Ames Farms Basswood Honey, they are a local Minnesota beekeeper that produces our absolute favorite honey) 

10 drops Lemon essential oil

10 drops Vanilla Absolute 

To make -

Zest the lemon and then squeeze the juice into a bowl. Whisk the honey and essential oils into the fractionated Coconut Oil until completely combined (it will be slightly thick). Now mix together the sugar and lemon zest and juice and combine with the oil mixture. You can use a bullet blender to really get your ingredients combined well.

Store in an air-tight container.

To use-

Apply to hands, arms, legs…shoot you can use this one just about everywhere, even your face! For an intensive treatment, you can even use it as a mask! Simply leave on for up to 10 minutes and rinse!
