Bless Your Sweet Hands: Lemon Sugar Hand Scrub and {free} Printable Tags

Chalkboard hands, Helping hands, Dry-Your-Tear hands.  Hands that clap, Hands that guide, Hands that hold your hands.

All those sweet hands that influence our lives are in for a treat.  A Lemon Sugar Hand Scrub is the perfect way to say thanks – to moms, grandmothers, teachers, or anyone you want to do something special for.

This sweet scrub is easy to make, just sugar, coconut oil, lemon zest and a little lemon oil.  So simple, but it will leave your hands feeling smooth and wonderful!  We’ve created a label for the scrub, plus a couple notes to add to your packaging.

Lemon Sugar Hand Scrub Recipe


2 cups sugar

1/3 cup coconut oil

lemon zest (about 1/2 of a lemon)

several drops lemon essential oil (you could you lemon extract)


Heat the coconut oil in the microwave until soft, but not melted (10-15 seconds).  Add the coconut oil to the sugar and work it in until completely combined and crumbly.   Add the lemon zest and lemon oil.

Package in cute well-sealed containers such as jars or tins.

  5. I’ve tried these before and they’re wonderful! I love using coconut oil on my skin… it’s smoothing and soaks in rather well.

  6. I plan on making this but how long does it keep for?

  7. Beccylou – As long as you keep it in an air-tight container it will last several weeks! You’ll love the smell every time you open the jar!

  8. Thanks!

  9. I would love to use these labels for my kid’s teacher gift but for some reason I can’t download the file. Its sending me to dropbox but it says it can’t establish a connection. Is there any other way to download them?

  10. I would love to print these out for my preschool moms at church. However, your link is disabled and there is a message to contact you. Is there a way you could re-enable the link?? These are perfect for what I am doing. :)Stephanie

  11. Sorry Everyone about the broken link – still trying to correct the problem. If you email me I can send you the pdf files!! –

  12. Yeah – I think the links are working!! Any problem you can email! Thanks for following Caramel Potatoes!!

  13. I there a possibility of getting the labels in an editable format? I am a dept head and would love to give this to my team of teachers but would like them to say “the” world instead of “my.”

    Thanks – Mary

  14. Mary – I’ve sent you a pdf with the change made. Thanks to you and your team for all you do. If anybody else needs the change email me.

  15. Love this idea! questions for you: there are different types of coconut oil. I use one for cooking, but know that you can get it for stuff such as skin care. does it matter in this case which one to use?

  16. Amber – No it really doesn’t matter. I use the same one I use for cooking. Thanks!!

  17. Hello, is it possible to send me a copy of the labels you made with the word “the” instead of “my”? I also want to use this idea for a team of volunteers. This is a very cute gift idea!

  18. Whitney – just sent it to your email!
