Do-It-Yourself Whipped Lemon Sugar Scrub - All Natural Skin & Lip Care

Give your skin and lips a treat of their own with a homemade sugar scrub. It's the perfection addition to your beauty routine and will have your entire body hydrated and ready for spring! This whipped lemon sugar scrub recipe buffs away dry, flaky skin using natural sugar and softens and moisturizes with coconut oil. The whipped blend feels luxurious and leaves skin supple and smooth, and the refreshing hint of lemon flavor is a delicious bonus!

I hope you enjoy this simple, easy-to-make recipe as much as I do! The texture is perfect and the sugar is very fine and melts into your lips and body. The taste is reminiscent of sugary cake frosting you scooped off the top of cake as a child, and is oh so sweet. Thankfully, it is safe to eat (unless you're watching your sugar) and according to Dr. Axe, coconut oil is very good for you, too!     


1 cup coconut oil (solid form) 
1 cup sugar
Zest of one lemon

Add coconut oil into a medium-sized bowl and mix on high until the coconut oil is soft and fluffy (6-7 minutes). Add sugar and lemon zest and continue for one more minute. I prefer a soft and fluffy consistency. For a thicker, coarse consistency, add more sugar.

Scoop into a small mason jar and store in a cool place. Note: Coconut oill will melt in temperatures above 75 degrees and refrigeration will solidify the coconut oil. 

Yield: One jar

I used expeller pressed/refined coconut oil which does not have a coconut scent and is gently refined to retain more nutrients.  The best part about this recipe is that you can make it any flavor or scent you wish by adding your favorite ingredients.  Try adding minced mint leaves, shredded coconut, or poppy seeds to create your very own savory combo.
