Homemade Lemon Body Scrub
1 cup epsom salts
3 Tablespoons of coconut oil
Zest of one lemon
¼ cup lemon juice
*6 drops of lemon essential oil (optional)
In a medium sized bowl, combine the coconut oil and the Epsom salts with a fork. Whisk until they become a smooth blend. Add the lemon juice, and mix well. Lastly, add the lemon zest and essential oil. If you used essential oil, make sure to store in a glass container. If you didn’t you can store in any container that has a sealable lid. Store in a cool, dry place until ready to use.
Disclaimer: Because this recipe has a large amount of citrus in it. It would be wise not to apply it, and then have prolonged time in the sun, as it could inadvertently cause damage to your skin. If you use this in the winter months, this isn’t likely.
