Happy New Year 2014! As Valentine’s Day is one of those things people start being creative for (handmade cards, homemade truffles, etc.), I decided to make a body scrub for the event. Haha! Very unromantic maybe, but makes a great gift to loved ones! As I like things smelling fresh and citrus-y, lemon was one of my go-to ingredients. Lemongrass (also known as serai in the Malay language) has also been growing on me especially since my facial moisturiser from Bobbi Brown is lemongrass based and working well on my skin.
Want this DIY lemongrass + lemon body scrub recipe? Look no further! Read below for more:
What you need:
- Glass jar (I bought mine from Daiso at only RM5 for 2 jars)
- Brown sugar (you can also use salt)
- Olive oil
- Lemongrass essential oil
Step #1: Pour out brown sugar into a bowl
Step #2: Slowly add the olive oil into the brown sugar. Do not add too much lest you get a really oily texture.
Step #3: Grate the lemon to get lemon zest to get a citrus-y smell.
Step #4: Add a few drops of lemongrass essential oil to your liking!
Step #5: Spoon your easily made DIY lemongrass + lemon body scrub into the glass jar.
Now enjoy giving these body scrubs to your loved ones!
