Lemon Salt Scrub

Share it with others!

Do you enjoy making gifts for people?  I do.  Today I’m sharing this lemon salt scrub recipe. This lemon salt body scrub is easy and inexpensive with minimal prep time. It’s great as an exfoliant to remove dead skin cells from dry skin and unclog pores. Perfect for a party favor, gift, craft night…

You’ll need:   A recycled glass jar Salt, your choice of oil (you can use coconut oil, jojoba oil, olive oil, canola oil, vegetable oil, avocado oil, etc) and a spoon.

If you want to bring a bit of citrus freshness you can add lemon juice. You can also add a whisper of scent to the basic recipe mixture by adding essential oils (grapefruit, orange, peppermint and lavender essential oil are a few of my favorites).

In a mixing bowl pour in 1 cup salt. (You could use sugar if you would like a sugar scrub instead or even experiment with a brown sugar scrub)

Add in 1/2 cup oil of your choice.

Add in 1 tablespoon lemon juice.

Mix all the ingredients together.

Spoon into your recycled jar.

Optional – Include a recipe card with directions and a spoon.

Great gift idea for any holiday, birthday, party favor, shower, etc.
