citrus salt body scrub recipe













Citrus Salt Body Scrub
1 1/2 cups of kosher salt
2 Tbs. lemon, grapefruit or orange zest (i like a combination)
1 cup vegetable or canola oil
1 tsp. lemon extract
1 small glass jar or other container

Fill your jar with the kosher salt and sprinkle citrus zest on top. Using the long, blunt end of a wooden spoon (or mortar and pestle if you've got one) distribute the zest throughout the salt evenly by stirring the dry ingredients together. Next pour the oil first into a measuring cup. Stir the lemon extract into the oil. Now pour half of the oil mixture into your jar and stir with small spoon to combine well. Pour the rest of the oil into the jar and mix well. Label your jar, tie it with string and it's ready for giving. This scrub makes a sweet gift for a spahhh party, a girls night out or mother's day!

kitchen notes // a 48 oz. box of kosher salt makes enough for 4 jars of scrub. the kosher salt is rough, but this stuff made our feet unbelievably (and noticeably) soft for days! this is a perfect size jar for this recipe; they came from ikea at $3 each. the original source for the recipe is unknown, i received it at a church activity.

I love making salt scrub. It is fun to mix it up. I often use avocado oil and coconut oil in mine. They are so great for your skin! I also use whatever essential oils I have on hand for the fragrance. Lavender essential oil with dried lavender & avocado oil is my favorite combo.

Thanks for your recipe! I need to get some of those jars!

I am having a girls brunch soon, and think this may be added to the menu to take home. Work has been super stressful, and some salt scrub/brunch/mimosas? would be wonderful!

Does this need to be refrigerated? What is the shelf life? Would Vitamin E help preserve it?
