Lemon Tea Tree Oil Sugar Scrub

Hello everyone. Hope your week has been blessed so far!
As for me, it's been great. I was able to getaway with my family for a few days for my Birthday.
Rancho Mirage is beautiful. My hubby took me out to dinner last night and it was wonderful. There was a lot of cute shops and the houses full of Christmas lights look so pretty.
It's been a sweet time and I don't want to leave!
Oh well, everything comes to an end so i guess I'll just have to enjoy my last day here :)
Moving onto the crafty side of me, I wanted to share this sugar scrub that I came up with.
My hands have been so so dry lately that I felt like I needed a scrub to get rid of all my dead skin. I wanted something that was gonna leave them soft and moist.
I made a few mason jars filled with this yummy scrub and I left some extra for me.
I love it and I love the smell of tea tree oil.
It might be a little too strong for some of you but feel free to change the oil to whatever your favorite smell is. You can use roses, grapefruit lavender, etc...whatever you want is fine!

Here are the ingredients:
2 cups of sugar
8 tablespoons of epsom salt
6 packages of green tea
3 tablespoon of olive oil
1 tablesppn of lanolin
1/3 cup of honey
10 drops of tea tree oil
a big bowl
3 small mason jars

Instructions:
Put the sugar in your bowl.
Add the epsom salt.
Cut your green tea bags and pour the tea in the mixture.
Add the olive oil & the lanolin & stir.
Add the honey.
And lastly add the tea tree oil a few drops at a time until it reaches the smell you want your sugar scrub to have. I added ten drops and that gave it a nice smell.
At this point I just used my hands to make sure all the ingredients were mixed well.
Pour mixture into your mason jars and give them a cute touch by decorating them.
I love how simple and pretty they turned out. There great as Christmas gifts, birthday gifts, teachers gifts, etc...
You'll have scrub left over enough for you so that's a blessing :)
Have a blessed rest of the week. God bless you guys!

P.S. I'm guest posting over @ Cinsarah today with Cindy. Hope you come check it out!

I've made scrubs before, but never with epsons...what a lovely gift idea. I'm a free lance clothing designer, so I'm such a huge fan of handmade! Thanks for posting this recipe! =)

Wow, this sounds amazing. I've always wanted to make my own scrub but never got around to it. You may have inspired me to get on with it!
