Orange and Lemon Scrub

Lemon and Orange Scrub + Bright Star Kids Give Away

The give away has closed, congratulations to the winners!

I love the idea of these especially when you are renting and cant paint you kids room they would like. I love the Pony Carousel even has my daughters name on it already 🙂


I found it really hard to choose just one that I liked, I think I need at least 4 🙂 but if I had to choose I’d pick the Spring Tree Wall Stickers, as that would fit my forest nursery perfectly 🙂

I love the apple and pear chalk board stickers. They look fabulous and fresh for any kitchen space!

In preparation for my 10 Week Countdown to Christmas series which starts next week, I made a lovely Lemon and Orange Scrub on the weekend which would make a beautiful handmade gift. I based it on the recipe from here.

It was super quick to make, as you can just throw all the ingredients in the blender. The citrus smell is delicious and it makes your skin feel so soft.

Lemon and Orange Scrub


  • 1 cup sea salt
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 4 slices of lemon
  • 4 slices of orange

Orange and Lemon Scrub

3. Pour into jar and seal.

4. These ingredients made 1.5 jars. I have already given the full jar to a friend and I am using the half jar in the shower myself, pouring it on to my exfoliating mitt and then scrubbing gently.

The little jars I used for the scrub, also provided the perfect opportunity to use some stickers I have received from Bright Star Kids. These stickers will also work well on the home baked goods I will make closer to Christmas.
