while browsing pinterest for homemade gift ideas (preferably something made in the kitchen), i stumbled upon this project. a quick glance onto my kitchen board revealed i had all the ingredients to make this in the house. so i got to work.
here are the ingredients as mentioned in the source link:
1,5 cups sugar
1/3 cup salt
zest of 1 extra large lemon (or other citrus)
1 cup olive oil
i recommend using less then 1 cup of olive oil at first, and to add more later according to your likes.
next time want to try an alternative to olive oil, because i felt it overpowers the scent of the lemon a little, which is why a few drops of essential oil might be helpful.
it is the perfect last minute gift though, as these are ingredients that are usually around. i tried it out right away and made a jar for myself as well. it feels awesome on the hands! i now want to try one with peppermint to use as a foot scrub.
oh the possibilities!
