DIY: Citrus Salt Scrub

When it comes to buying something at the store verses making it on your own, hands down the one you take the time to make is the one that you end up liking better. It's cheaper and you get more quantity of it. I've shown you all before the bath salts I've made in the past. Now I'm going to show you this EASY PEASY salt scrub, from the lovely Paula Dean, you can make from ingredients I'm betting you already have in your kitchen.

Citrus Salt Scrub
Source: Adapted from Paula Deen

1/2 Cup of Sea Salt
1/2 Cup of Vegetable Oil (Can also use olive or almond oil)
1/2 teaspoon of lemon juice (Or lemon zest)
1/2 teaspoon of orange zest (optional)

In a bowl mix salt and oil together. Once they are mixed then add your lemon juice, followed by your zest. Pour mixture into an airtight container and store in a cool dry place.

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.
