7. Citrus Salt Body Scrub

Or how about the tangy zing of citrus? I love this as a morning scrub. When you use it in the steamy shower, the citrus keeps you cool and invigorated! It smells like sunshine, so if you use this during your morning routine, you'll feel energized all day long!


1/2 cup sea salt

1/2 cup sweet almond oil

(can substitute light olive oil or vegetable oil)

1/2 teaspoon lemon zest

1/2 teaspoon orange zest


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.


Homemade sea salt scrubs are actually better than store bought ones. You know exactly what's going into your scrub, you can use any fragrance or ingredient you like, and you'll never run out! They also make great gifts for your friends, because they're functional, fabulous, and thoughtful! Do you have any secret scrub recipes, or will you stick to these?
