Homemade Lemon-Green Tea Sugar Scrub

Last week I was doing some research for Molly and came across a neat Lemon-Green Tea Sugar Scrub that she used in her  newsletter about lemons. I just ran out of my exfoliation scrub so I decided to try to make this one. It was so easy and works AMAZINGLY! I tend to get dry skin and this made my skin feel so soft and smooth. You should go make some right now! Here is how I made it: (Note: I changed the recipe a bit, but you can find the link to the original one in Molly’s newsletter.)

Ingredients

1 1/4 cup sugar
3 tablespoons Epsom salt
10 teaspoons olive oil
2 teaspoons honey
4 green tea bags
1 large lemon to zest
1/4-1/2 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon

Directions

1. Zest your lemon and set it aside.

2. Mix the sugar and Epsom salt together in a large bowl.

3. Open up your green tea bags and add in the loose tea.

4. Next, stir in the olive oil, mix in the honey, and then sprinkle the lemon juice evenly over the mixture and mix together thoroughly. If the lemon juice causes the mixture to clump, just pinch the clumps apart and spread out evenly. (Note: Be sure to do it in this order. The olive oil will help the honey slide right out of the spoon.)

5. Add the lemon zest last and mix again.

Store the scrub in an airtight container and enjoy! I don’t think I’ll buy any kind of exfoliator ever again. This stuff is amazing and it’s so easy to make!

  1. Ok, you convinced me! I’m going to try this. Not sure I have any green tea, but I may.

    • Hope you like it too! If you have any essential oil, you might try adding some of that. That’s the one thing I might change next time.
