    Planning to make these for my mom and sisters.

  4. Found this through Pinterest and made it for my mom for Christmas. It smells so lemony fresh and coconutty! Thanls

  5. I didn’t get around to making this before Christmas. I’ll just have to make some for myself.

  6. I wish my screen was scratch & sniff – this looks so refreshing. I’m going to try to make it for myself!

  7. Do you have to melt the coconut oil?

  8. My daughter made this for me for Mother’s Day. It smelled so good!

  9. I would never have thought to pair lemon with coconut in a scrub, but I bet it smells great! Thanks for sharing. 🙂

  10. Great idea, thanks for sharing. Can you recommend another kind of oil to use if the recipient doesn’t like the smell of coconut?

  11. This seems so simple! Thank you for breaking it down and including the pritnable labels.

    Thanks for linking up for #FlashbackFriday

  12. Interesting combo … will try for Mother’s Day. My Mom likes both coconut and lemon scents so this should be a winner for her.

    Thanks for sharing.

  13. Hi, I am planning on making these as bridal shower favors… Just wondering how much this recipe makes?

    Hi there! I love your recipe. It came out perfectly! I was wondering what size labels you recommended?

    • I like to buy the full sheets of sticky label paper to print on and then just cut around the labels. Hope that helps!

  15. With the lemon juice in the scrub, do u have to put it in the fridge so it won’t sour after a while?

    • It is fine unrefrigerated. I think because it is so acidic the lemon juice stays good at room temp.

  16. Is there a shelf life for this scrub? It sounds wonderful.
