Gift Idea: Homemade Body Scrub for Men
Got a hard working man with soil, grease, or otherwise stained and rough hands? Have I got a scrub for you. This Citrus and Clove Homemade Body Scrub for Men smells reminiscent of the old hand cleaner I remember from my grandfather’s workshop, but a little updated and moisturizing as well. All the ingredients in this recipe are simple natural ingredients that you don’t have to worry over, and don’t worry it’s not just for men it makes a great hand and foot scrub for the ladies too.
As a veterinarian, my hubby is washing his hands over and over all day long, which makes for some very dry skin! I made this with him in mind and he really loves it, the scent is masculine enough that it doesn’t threaten his manhood the way my gardenia scrub might. Father’s Day is just around the corner and a large jar of this with, oh say… a wrench, screwdriver, or shop rags would make a thoughtful homemade gift.
Mens Body Scrub
- ½ cup Coarse Sea salt
- ½ cup Baking soda
- ⅓ bar Dial Soap (or any bar soap)
- ½ cup coconut oil
- 1 lemon or orange, grated peel
- 10 drops Clove essential oil
- 10 drops Orange essential oil
Finely grate or shave soap- it should be near powder form.
Combine sea salt, baking soda, coconut oil, grated soap, and essential oils.
Grate the peel of 1 lemon or orange into your mixture, combine well.
Transfer hand scrub to a shallow jar with a wide mouth, this makes it much easier to get out. Be sure that your jar also has a good tight fitting lid for storage. I also recommend using glass not plastic to store because essential oils can break down many plastics.
One thing that I really love about this Homemade Body Scrub for Men as a gift idea is that it’s so practical and it shows that you put thought and love into your gift selection. What other fun gift ideas do you like to make for your man?
