DIY Lemon Sugar Body Scrub

Lemon is one of my favorite scents anytime, but there’s something about spring that makes me crave the fresh brightness of citrus. This lemon sugar body scrub is great as a gift, and it makes a fun project to DIY with your girlfriends. I’ve used it as exfoliating body wash, as a hand scrub, and even for counter cleaning (just omit the oil).
