- 1 cup sugar
- Juice from half a lemon
- 1/4 cup honey
- A drizzle of Molasses (optional)
- Something to spread the mixture with (i.e. tongue depressor, popsicle stick, etc.)
- Cotton fabric (I use old strips from a previous sugaring kit, but any cotton fabric strips will do)
Microwave - Mix lemon, sugar, and honey in a bowl. Microwave on high for about 2-3 minutes until it bubbles into a smooth consistency.
Stove – Mix ingredients in a medium saucepan and heat on medium-low until the mixture bubbles into a smooth consistency, stirring often.
Let the mixture cool until it can be safely touched.
Spread a thin layer of mixture on the desired area. Cover the area with a strip of fabric. Rub the strip in the opposite way of hair growth about three times. Grab the end of the fabric and pull it off very quickly against the direction of the hair growth. If the mixture gets too hard to spread, reheat the mixture slightly.
This recipe stores for a long time. I keep mine in a covered container in the refrigerator and reheat when needed.
