Citrus Body Scrub


Homemade salt or sugar scrubs are a great way to start your morning off right! They are also a great way to show your skin a bit of love! 

yields 12 oz.

1 cup of fine sea salt
1/2 cup of grapeseed oil (or other carrier oil of your choice)
15-20 drops of citrus essential oils of your choice
Bowl for mixing
Jar for storing


Mix together the sea salt and grapeseed oil in a bowl. Add in the essential oils, mixing well continually. Transfer the mixture into a glass jar.

In the shower or bath massage the scrub on your wet skin gently. Rinse the scrub off in warm water. Follow up with your favorite lotion or coconut oil to moisturize. You are ready to go! You will feel like a burst of sunshine! 

Mix it up! You can use a variety of essential oils; lime, grapefruit, orange, and lemon all are refreshing! Use separately or several together! Sweet almond oil as the carrier and orange essential oil are amazing!


Make sure you apply SPF when out in the sun! Citrus essential oils may heighten sensitive skin in the sun.
Please consult your doctor if you are pregnant or taking any prescription medication before using any essential oils.
