I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. I think my weekend could have been more productive, but I won’t complain. This will be my last post until this Friday (2 August). Until then, I will be studying for an exam in comparative criminal justice, which is this Thursday. Wish me luck!
Yesterday I decided to treat myself to a DIY sugar scrub. I decided to do this DIY lime sugar scrub because I thought it was a perfect match for the beautiful summer weather.
While I have nicknamed this sugar scrub “Margarita Feet” it is not exclusively for feet. The first time I ever made this I was giving myself a pedicure and I only used the scrub on my feet. When I was done I told Tom, “My feet smell like a margarita!”
- 1/2-1 cup sugar
- 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1 1/2 tbsp lime juice
Combine the ingredients in a small bowl. If you find the mixture is too runny slowly add more sugar while continuing to stir. If your mixture is too dry, add another 1/2 tbsp of lime juice.
When you are happy with the consistency transfer the product to an airtight container (or containers) and store in a cool, dry place. I purchased my containers online from Canwax.
Remember, sugar scrubs make tub and shower surfaces slippery. Be sure to rinse your tub or shower well after using.
I absolutely love DIY sugar scrubs! If you love DIY sugar scrubs too and you would like to see more, let me know! As well I am always looking for new DIY sugar scrubs and other DIY projects to try. Please leave a comment below or e-mail me if you have any suggestions!
And of course, if you give this DIY sugar scrub a try, let me know what you think!
I’m off to study. Be sure to check back on Friday!
Thanks for reading and have a fantastic week!
