A few months back while browsing Pinterest, I came across a recipe for a homemade citrus scrub that I immediately pinned. I purchased the four ingredients, made up a few batches and shared with a few of my friends. One friend raved how soft her hands instantly became after using the scrub. The other really enjoyed the natural clean scent of the scrub. For my recent birthday celebration, my best friend handmade fifteen citrus scrub favors for my guests. The citrus scrub favors are great for bridal showers or other small parties. Below is the recipe and list of ingredients. Enjoy!
Prep Time: 5 min
½ cup coarse sea salt
½ cup sweet almond oil (can substitute light olive oil or vegetable oil)
½ teaspoon lemon zest
½ teaspoon orange zest
Directions: In a medium dry bowl, combine all ingredients making sure to not let any water touch them as it will dissolve the salt. Pour mixture into an airtight container and store in a cool dry place.
To use: Just before showering, swirl ingredients together with your fingertips to mix. Clean body completely and just before exiting shower, apply Citrus Salt Body Scrub to body in a firm circular scrubbing motion with hands or a soft washcloth. Rinse off the mixture and pat body dry with a clean towel.
