How would these store? In the fridge? Or is the honey and lemon juice enough to prevent ickyness? The recipe looks great. I am a slow scrubber, lol.

Thanks everyone! I know it's stupid, but this is the first thing I've made and not bought, so I thought it was pretty cool. Smiley

The book I got this recipe from didn't come with instructions for storing. I have not been storing it in the fridge; it's sitting in my bathroom. It's been almost a month since I've made it, and there is no ickyness. I planned on using it up within a month or two. I use it liberally, every time I shower. It's such a cheap recipe that I don't feel the need to conserve it.

By the way, in addition to being exfoliating, it's pretty moisturizing. I have SUPER dry/sensitive skin, and I think it's the olive oil that feels great.

Then I will make it tonight or tomorrow! I am so stingy with store bought products, because they're kind expensive. But this does look inexpensive. Thank you so much for sharing!

I'd been looking for a cheap scrub (quite unsuccessfully)....
So I just made it! (Sans lemon rind though cause it turns out I didn't actually have any) but I have this lavender oil that i might add to it for scent.


I just scrubbed my hands and realllllly dry elbows with it to see how it works and...:
My hands are silky smooth and my elbows feel like someone is blowing cool air on them (as odd as it sounds, it's quite pleasant) and they're super smooth now too.

I've been looking for a Big Ass Book of Crafts.
Do u happen to know the title?  Undecided

I just whipped up a batch of this and gave it a try. I agree with the other reviewers who said it makes your skin feel pretty smooth. I used about 1/12 a cup or so for my whole body. For some reason or another mine didn't have a very strong scent or anything though. I already had lemon peel on hand so I added 1 T of that. Then I tried adding 1 T of lemon juice but the only thing that changed was the consistency. Mine smells -lightly- of honey. I'm thinking I might end up picking up some kind of lemony EO for the next batch to see if that helps.

As far as the book is concerned I believe the title is "The Big-Ass Book of Crafts."

I'm so happy that people like this scrub as much as I do!
I didn't have a problem with a lack of scent when I made my batch.. maybe your lemon peel wasn't fresh? Hmm..

The title is The Big-Ass Book of Crafts and it's by Mark Montano. There are a few beauty product recipes, but most of the book is other household crafts. It is such a great book.

Yeah, I had picked it up pre-made at the store a few months back for a lemon-poppy seed muffin mix I was making. Maybe next time I'll buy the lemon and do the work myself (though I still prefer my lazy options ^^).

I just made this yesterday and I love it! I was a little nervous to put it on my face at first, but it feels wonderful! I threw a little in a portable bottle so I can use it when I'm in the shower and not worry about getting it wet.

My only question is, does anyone else's not really smell lemony? Mine smells more like the tea and honey I used. Would zesting two lemons in a batch make it overbearingly lemony?

Please make this swap happen!!!
