Lemon Sugar Scrub

I know I am off my usual track today but, I started making these cute little scrubs for teacher gifts and I thought I'd share them with you. These would be perfect in your kitchen too.

1 c sugar
1/2 cup olive oil
1 tsp lemon essence oil
1 tsp real lemon juice
1 Tbsp lemon zest (grated)

1 drop of yellow food coloring
Mix it all to your liking, some gals like it a little drier and some like more olive oil. Use it on your rough parts, hands, feet, knees and elbows. Be careful this does make your shower a little oily so lightly rinse with a little soap to get some of that greasy feeling off. Don't worry you will still have super soft skin. Oh, you also need to remember since it has lemon juice in it you probably don't want to scrub any parts of your body that have cuts or nicks on them.
Enjoy!
