I found this on a blog, and went straight to the kitchen to make it:

Moisturizing Kitchen Hand Scrub

1 1/2 c sugar
1/3 c kosher salt (I used a coarse Hawaiian salt)
zest of 1 extra large lemon (I used orange zest)
1 c olive oil
1/4 tsp pure lemon extract, optional

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well. If you would like a slightly stronger fragrance, add the extract.

Spoon into a pretty jar, tighten the lid. Wipe any spills or drips from the outside of the jar. Alternatively, you can use orange or lime zest for a different fresh citrus smell.

For an extra touch, tie a pretty bow around the jar if you plan to gift this scrub.

I used orange zest, since I didn't have a lemon. The smell is faint - I think the lemon would be stronger. But I love the scrub, especially the idea of keeping it in the kitchen, next to the sink!

The olive oil really does make your hands feel soft. I love it!!!
