DIY Lavander and Lemon Body Scrub

This is how I make my body scrub, I prefer to do it myself because then I know exactly what ingredients are in the product.
This body scrub is so easy to make, it takes about five minutes and then you're ready to it, whenever you want.
What you will need:

Granulated Sugar
Runny Honey
A lemon
Coconut Oil
Essential Oils (of your choice)
A clean jar
I haven't put any quantities down because it doesn't really matter, just keep adding bits of ingredients until you get the consistency that you want.
Firstly I had the sugar and salt into a bowl, then in goes about a tablespoon of Coconut Oil.
Mix this together so that the Oil spread evenly throughout the mix and finds more of a liquid consistency.
Next up, get the juice of the whole lemon and add it to the mixture. I used a hand held juice with a mini strainer to catch all of the flesh and pips.
Now, had the honey, as much or as little as you want, this is good for the skin and smells nice.
Last but not least I have chosen to had Lavender and Eucalyptus essential oil to this scrub. It's great to use in the morning to wake you up because the fragrance are so fresh and uplifting and the Coconut Oil leaves your skin smooth and hydrated.
All you need to do now, is put it in a clean jar (the jar in the picture is an old coffee container) and leave it somewhere cool, ready to use.
