Spring Inspired Natural Lemon and Poppyseed Homemade Sugar Scrub Recipe

Here’s a new natural lemon poppy seed sugar scrub recipe I created this weekend that you can treat yourself to anytime! And you don’t have to be in the tub to enjoy it! Keep some by the sink to exfoliate and moisturize hands throughout the day.

I crafted my natural lemon poppy seed sugar scrub with spring in mind. Thus the fresh lemon fragrance and poppy seeds. The addition of shea butter makes this homemade body scrub extra creamy, rather than oily or drippy. Messy scrubs are one of my biggest pet peeves. I hope you enjoy this natural sugar scrub recipe much as I do!

Natural Homemade DIY Creamy Lemon Poppy Seed Sugar Scrub Recipe

Ingredients:

4.25 oz. white granulated sugar
1 oz. refined shea butter
.5 oz. jojoba oil
.25 oz. apricot kernel oil
.5 ml lemongrass essential oil
.5 ml peppermint essential oil
1/2 teaspoon poppy seeds

Instructions:

Using a digital kitchen scale weigh out the shea butter in a large glass pyrex measuring cup. Heat on reduced power in the microwave just until melted, then weigh out the jojoba and apricot kernel oil and stir into the liquified shea butter. Measure out the essential oils using a graduated plastic transfer pipette and add to the oils. (If you’d like to tint your scrub as I did, simply add 2-3 drops of food coloring or liquid melt and pour soap colorant.)

Beauty DIY - Natural Homemade Lemon and Poppy Seed Sugar Scrub Recipe

In a separate container weigh out the sugar and add the poppy seeds. Pour the sugar and poppy seeds into the melted shea butter and oils and mix well using a fork. Finally spoon into a container of your choice. I used a glass jar with a bail lid that I purchased from Target for under $4. You can also find larger, 20 oz. glass jars at the Dollar Tree.

If you’d like to swap out the essential oils for a fragrance oil, use 2 ml of your fragrance oil of choice. Keeping with the lemon theme, I’m pretty sweet on using lemon pound cake fragrance oil.
