I love to make my own health and beauty products. Mostly because if I buy them it is usually on a whim and they end up in a cupboard unused. If I make them myself, I can make a small batch and use it all up before I get fed up using it.
This lemon body is ideal for use in the shower. Turn on the water and get a little wet. Shut down the water and scrub yourself down with some of this yummy smelling homemade goodness and then get back under the water for a good rinse.
It’ll leave you feeling so fresh and sparkly it won’t even matter that the kids are banging on the bathroom door before you are half-way toweled dry.
If you’d like the “I don’t even have the energy today to read it, – just tell me” version, there’s an instructional video at the bottom of the page.
