When life gives you lemons, treat yourself to a homemade Lemonade Body Scrub! This natural exfoliant combines the calming aroma of sweet orange with fresh lemon zest and reveals your youthful, bright skin.
Lemonade Body Scrub with Sweet Orange
zest and juice of 1 organic lemon
- 2/3 cup (170ml) fine Epsom salt or sea salt
- 2 tbs (30ml) organic grapeseed oil
- 24 drops organic sweet orange essential oil
- Combine all ingredients.
Lemon juice is loaded with healthy vitamins that can make your skin glow. Use only a little bit at a time, though, as the acidity couldl interfere with your skin’s natural pH.
Salt naturally exfoliants and then dissolves – no need to worry about blocking the shower drain! Be sure to choose a finely-ground salt, as larger sizes can be too rough for sensitive skin.
Grapeseed oil is a lightly moisturizing carrier oil that contributes to the smooth texture of your homemade body care products.
Sweet Orange essential oil is naturally anti-microbial and adds a yummy citrus scent to your homemade creations.
TIP: Always remember to patch test any skin care product or ingredient before using a large amount – your skin matters!
