Description

Homemade salt scrubs are perfect for the kitchen or bathroom. Essential oils, citrus zest, and coconut oil make this DIY salt scrub an energizing, refreshing treat for your skin. It keeps your hands and body soft, smooth, and moisturized without breaking the bank. Perfect for gift giving and fighting the winter blues!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons fine grain salt (I used idolized salt)
  • 5 tablespoons coarse grain salt (I used kosher salt)
  • 1/2 cup liquid coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon fresh citrus zest such as orange, lemon, or tangerine
  • 4 drops grapefruit essential oil
  • 4 drops tangerine essential oil

Instructions

  1. Place fine grain salt and kosher salt in a bowl. Pour coconut oil on top and add citrus zest, grapefruit oil, and tangerine oil. Stir well to fully incorporate.
  2. Store at room temperature in a sealed glass or plastic container.

Notes

If your coconut oil is solid, melt it in the microwave first and let cool for a few minutes before mixing.

To use as a hand scrub, wet hands. Stir the salt scrub mixture to incorporate the oil and add a spoonful to the palm of your hands. Massage and rub for at least 30 seconds and up to 2 minutes, then rinse off.

Can also be used as a body scrub in the shower, or as a foot scrub if you soak your feet for a few minutes first.
