DIY Sugar Hand ScrubIf you put up a real tree at your house, you've probably experienced the icky feeling of pine sap on your hands. It's sticky and nearly impossible to wash off with soap and water. Wether you're putting the tree up, or taking it down, you need to have a batch of this homemade scrub on hand. I keep a little jar of this next to my kitchen sink. It really does the trick for de-grubbing stubborn or sticky dirt. The sugar exfoliates and scrubs, and the honey and olive oil leave my hands super soft. If you know someone who does a lot o work with their hands (hello, gardeners!), double the batch and package in 125 mL or 250 ML wide-mouth Mason jars for a sweet and easy DIY gift. Easy DIY Sugar Hand Scrub 1 1/2 cups white sugar 1/2 cup olive oil 2 tbsp lemon juice 1 tbsp honey 2-5 drops of essential oil (lavender, orange, or peppermint) Mix together sugar and olive oil. Add lemon juice, honey and essential oil and stir until mixed. Store in a small Mason jar. To use: Start with dry hands, and rub about a tablespoon of the scrub all over hands, focusing on dry or grimy spots. Rinse with warm water until clean.
