DIY Lemon Coconut Salt Scrub

 

Use this simple sea salt scrub to soften winter-hardened skin. Lemon gives it an uplifting aroma, salt acts as an exfoliator, and coconut and almond oils moisturize skin. Apply it to your body but avoid delicate areas like the face.

Ingredients:
  • 1 organic lemon
  • 1/2 cup fine sea salt
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons almond oil

Directions:
  1. Zest the lemon directly into a glass bowl and reserve the fruit for another use. 
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and stir together until well-combined. Add more oil if necessary to achieve a spreadable consistency.
  3. Store in a labeled air-tight container.
  4. To use: Wet your skin. Scoop out a tablespoon or two of the salt scrub and distribute it on both palms. Rub it vigorously into skin, then rinse with warm or cool water and pat dry.
