DIY Organic Citrus Body Scrub
On p.66 of the new July/August 2013 Be Like Water issue of Coco Eco Magazine and in this week’s Coco Beauty blog post, this organic DIY Citrus Body Scrub that I put together for my Island Beauty At Home piece sloughs off dead skin while leaving it smooth, moisturized and soft to the touch. It’s also extremely easy and inexpensive to make. All of the natural ingredients can be found right in your kitchen at home or at your local grocery store as well as serve double-duty for cooking and eating.
DIY Organic Citrus Body Scrub Ingredients:
- 1/3 cup pure fine sea salt
- 1 tbsp organic extra virgin coconut oil
- 2 tbsp organic extra virgin olive oil
- 1⁄2 organic lemon
- 1⁄2 organic lime
- 1⁄4 organic orange
DIY Organic Citrus Body Scrub Directions:
Start by placing sea salt in a small glass bowl or wide mouth jar. Add coconut oil and olive oil and mix together until smooth. Add a few squeezes of fresh fruit for desired amount and stir. If you don’t have coconut oil around, use all olive oil and you can always swap a couple of drops of organic essential oils in place of the fresh fruit juice for larger batches to keep longer.
