I only made half of the "recipe", but the ingredients stayed the same:
1 1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup olive oil
Zest of one lemon
Juice of 1/2 lemon
Mix all ingredients in a bowl, then fill up a mason jar or any jar with a lid that closes tightly. That's it!
This is a small mason jar (12 oz. I think) and you can see that it didn't fill it up all the way. I think the full recipe would fill up the jar, and you'd have a bit extra.
I dressed up the jar a bit with scrapbook paper on the lid, and took this opportunity to try out my new 1/8" hole punch, and made a little tag.
It's definitely oily when you put it on, but it absorbs quite nicely. If you really like the lemon scent, you might want to use extra zest, or maybe even a few drops of lemon essential oil. I can also see why the original creator included a spoon. It does separate quite a bit, so you'll need to give instructions to "shake and scrub". :-)
This would be easy to make a large batch of and pack up as sweet little gifts. Use small tins and they'd be great shower favors!
