Lemon Loaf Brown Sugar Scrub Recipe

I love sugar scrubs, and they make a perfect gift.  They're quick and easy, but people love to get them as gifts because it's a little "indulgence" they might not ever buy or make for themselves.  I got some lemon oil a while back (read the review here) and it smelled so amazing I knew I had to make a sugar scrub out of it!  But I wanted something a little more than just the basic lemon sugar scrub, so I came up with this Lemon Loaf Brown Sugar Scrub.  When I let my kids smell it they wanted to eat it, it smells that good!  I didn't let them, but I could have because this is made with ingredients found in many people's kitchen.  If you keep scrolling, I've also included the pattern for the crocheted mason jar topper =)

Lemon Loaf Brown Sugar Scrub
  • 1/3 cup of coconut oil, melted* 
  • 1/3 cup of brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup white sugar (you can use all brown sugar, but I found it to be too dark)
  • 4-6 drops of lemon oil (this is the one I use)
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  1. Mix everything together.  It doesn't get much easier!  Add more oil or sugar if you want to change the constancy.
  2. Store in a jar or airtight container. 
*Coconut oil will harden a bit in cooler temperatures.  If you want to avoid that, use half coconut oil and half olive or almond oil.  Or just replace it altogether.

Simple Crocheted Mason Jar Topper


  • Any worsted weight yarn (I used Lily Sugar n Cream in "Sunshine")
  • Size "I" crochet hook
  • Dc - Double Crochet
  • Ch - Chain
  • Sc - Single Crochet
  1. DC 14 into a magic loop, slip to join, ch 2 and turn 
  2. Dc into same, 2 dc in each remaining stitch, slip to join, ch 1, turn
  3. Sc in the back loop only in each stitch, slip to join, ch 2 and turn
  4. *Skip stitch, sc*, repeat from * to *, slip to join, ch 2 and turn
  5. Dc in each stitch, slip to join, bind off and weave in ends
  6. Braid some yarn and weave it through holes formed in row 4
  7. Tie in a cute little bow =)
*Note: It may be a little tight at first, but it'll stretch.  If you find you need a bit more room, just add a row of single crochet between rows 2 and 3.
