  1. Such a great Mothers’ Day gift idea and it’s so easy to make. Just an FYI – I used olive oil, because it’s what I had at home, and it took about triple the amount of Lemon essential oil to get it to smell even a teeny bit lemony. Next time, I think I’ll try the coconut oil!

    • We can see how using olive oil might make it smell less like lemon. Good idea adding a bit more lemon essential oil. Glad you love the recipe!

  2. I was wondering if you could tell me where you got the container you used in the photos. I am making these for Christmas and yours looks so pretty.

  3. Hey, looking at trying this recipe. Do I need to use the Vitamin E oil? Would there be any cons to not using it? Or any pros to using it?
    Thank you!

  4. How much does this recipe make?

    I’m making sugar scrubs for a bridal shower favor and I need to do 20 4oz jars so trying to figure out how many batches I need. Thanks!

    • Because it has no preservatives, This homemade scrub lasts about a month or two as long as you use clean hands or a spoon to get it out of the container.

    • Hi Alma, you don’t need to refrigerate this recipe. However, because it doesn’t have any preservatives, use within a month or two and use with clean hands or spoon so not to contaminate.

    • Hi Leisla, although I’ve never tried using Avocado oil, I think it would work fine. Lemon extract is food safe, so would be okay, it just doesn’t have the therapeutic benefits as essential oils.
