Lemon poppy seed hand scrub

First, let me say thanks to HollyHox for inspiring me!  She always has such great ideas.  So yeah, I was a copy cat on this one only hers was lavender and I didn't have any of that.  Still it's so fabulous, I had to share it with you.  And in the dead of winter, who doesn't need a good hand scrub?  So...get to the pantry girl!  Let's make some.

Lemon Poppy Seed Hand Scrub

1 cup olive oil
2 1/2 cups sugar
juice of 2 lemons
1 teaspoon poppy seeds
That's it.

Mix it up.

Put it in a pretty jar.

And kiss those dry hands goodbye.


Head on over to Holly's for the Lavender Scrub recipe.

  12. I had to stop back and let you know that I made a batch this morning and I love it.
    A few days of using that and my hands should be good as new.
