Pink Lemonade Brown Sugar Hand Scrub
This is a great scrub! I am going to make it for mothers day! Would we be able to get a copy of your label for the scrub? It is so pretty,and I know I will not be able to duplicate. 🙂
Hi! I have included the link to a label for this. Best of luck! It will be such a wonderful Mother's Day gift!
Can you suggest a different base rather then coconut oil? Would shea butter or emu moisture cream work?
You can use any type of oil you prefer! Grapeseed oil, rosehip oil, jojoba oil etc. I would personally use an oil base versus a butter base, but you can give it a try.
I love lemon anything!!!!!!!!!!
Thank you for the post, can't wait to try the scrub!
I wish your sugar scrub recipe had a print option on your page.
