I decided not to make pumpkin cheesecake bars for Christmas, but I will be making them…I’m not sure when, but I will be making them.
I did, however, make a Lemon Sugar Hand Scrub. It’s for your hands, and I just happened to have all the ingredients on hand. You mix lemon juice, sugar, and olive oil together and all of a sudden, you have a hand scrub!
I liked the scrub itself just fine and my hands were soft afterwards. But I also had some issues with it. Like the fact that it didn’t smell lemon-y enough. Seriously, I couldn’t smell any lemon. I don’t mind the smell of olive oil at all, but I kept thinking that I needed some bread to go along with it. Perhaps something that doesn’t have such a strong scent, or adding some lemon zest or lemon extract will help it smell slightly more lemon-y.
Then there’s the fact that it’s far too oily. It did separate a little, and I don’t know if it’s because I didn’t mix it well enough or because there was too much oil. At least you wash it right off…
I think this is a good start to some other sugar scrubs, I just need some mason jars!
