This is a simple lavender scrub that's great to keep around the kitchen and bathroom sinks - if you double the recipe you can even use it as a body scrub. It's great for dry hands - just rub it on while your hands are dry, rinse off, and dry. If I use it in the shower I tend to go with scrubbing it onto wet skin and washing afterwards - otherwise you might be a slippery mess. :D

You can sub in other herbs or spices for the lavender in this scrub - I've seen all kinds of scrubs with dried lemon peel, basil, chunks of cinnamon or cardamom, etc. Be creative! I just love lavender scrub because it's so soothing to smell.

What you'll need:

  • 2 teaspoons dried lavender
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • a few teaspoons of jojoba or olive oil - enough

You'll also want a small container to store it in, and a mortar and pestle are helpful but not entirely necessary.

How to make it:

  1. Measure out your ingredients.
  2. Place half of the sugar and the lavender in a mortar and pestle or a bowl - crush them together (use a wooden spoon if you need to!) until the lavender starts to break up and becomes really fragrant.
  3. Pour all the sugar and lavender into the container you'll be storing it in.
  4. Add oil little by little while stirring until the sugar is just moistened. You don't want it to be runny!
