Even though I always wear gloves for gardening, my hands were still left a bit grubby after preparing the vegetable plot last week, as I still insist on poking around in the soil even when I’ve taken them off!   So I decided to make a very simple salt scrub and my hands were soon good-as-new.  Want to know how I made it?  Here’s how:

 Aromatic Lemon and Rosemary Salt Scrub

I wanted to only use ingredients I have at home, without going out to buy anything – besides which, I needed to use the salt scrub in quick-style!  I used 1 cup of sea salt, 1/2 cup of baby oil, the zest of two lemons and a couple of sprigs of rosemary from the garden.

First of all, I put the sea salt into a bowl, added the baby oil and gave it a little stir.  Then I zested two lemons, pulled the individual rosemary leaves from the sprigs and chopped them roughly.  All that was left was to tip the lemon zest and rosemary into the mixture, give it a final stir and spoon into a pretty jar .

I then added a label and tied something pretty around the outside of the jar and that’s it – done!

Easy peasy lemon squeezy ….. so to speak!
