For the Body

Lemony Sea Salt Scrub

Lemon sea salt scrub

For Christmas this year, I gave homemade bath and body products to the ladies in my family.  They are pampering, low-cost, totally customizable, and better for your skin than most commercially available products.  The best part is, many body products can be made with items that you probably already have in your kitchen.  This sea salt scrub uses only 3 basic ingredients, unless you want to use multiple moisturizing or essential oils.

Lemony Sea Salt Scrub  – Makes ~2 cups

2 cups coarse sea salt

1/2 c. oil (I used half coconut and half almond oil)

10-15 drops lemon essential oil, or more if you want a longer-lasting scent

Lemon zest (optional)

Mix sea salt with oil, adding the oil gradually, until the scrub reaches your preferred consistency.  Stir in essential oil and lemon zest, and package in a sealed container.  It’s that easy!
