In a small bowl, combine 1 cup sugar, 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil, and 1 teaspoon lemon juice. With a wooden spoon, stir until all of the ingredients are completely combined.
Add six drops of essential oil, such as lavender or citrus. Add 1 tbsp. baking soda to help soften the skin.
Combine thoroughly until all lumps are gone. The combination should be of a single hue. Combine the ingredients in a clean, dry jar with a tight-fitting cover.
Keep it in a dry environment. The scrub should be applied once every six months.
With a small spoon, scoop 2 to 3 teaspoons of the mixture into the palm of your hand. Combine three to four droplets of water to form a paste. Apply the paste in a circular motion to your wet face using your fingertips or a damp washcloth. Gently rub into the face, but avoid over scrubbing.
