This vibrant, energizing lemon sugar scrub is easy to make and the perfect way to spoil a deserving hard worker in your life: your mother or grandma, your child’s teacher, or your bets friend ­čśë

Here’s what you’ll need to┬á make it:

  • 2.5 cups of white sugar
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
