Lemon Poppy Seed Cookie Scrub:

Bring on a glow! The natural vitamin C in highly acidic lemons helps rapidly turn over and brighten skin cells. Plus, the energizing citrus fruit helps deodorize and clean skin. This blend plays off a popular muffin recipe, with the added gentle exfoliation benefit of tiny poppy seeds.


  • 4 lemons
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup cornmeal
  • ½ cup coconut oil

Directions: Zest the lemons, then leave the zest to dry for one to two hours. (If you don’t have a zester, remove the lemon peel with a vegetable peeler and then mince the peel with a knife.) In a bowl, mix poppy seeds, sugar, cornmeal, vanilla and lemon zest. Pour the oil over the ingredients and mix to combine. Store in a sealed jar for up to three months.
