Organic Lemon Scrub
I figured with summer coming up, it would be the perfect time to post this fresh and revitalizing body scrub recipe. My skin is still recovering from winter and has been really itchy from seasonal allergies. Body scrubs are heaven scent (get it?!) at this time of year. I love homemade body scrubs because they are A) easy B) cheap and C) they work!
This lemon body scrub is made of sugar, coconut oil, and lemon. The sugar exfoliates, the coconut oil moisturizes, and the lemon brighten and tightens skin.
What you need:
1/4 cup of organic sugar
1 tablespoon of organic coconut oil
10-15 drops of lemon essential oil
1-2 tsp organic lemon zest
4oz glass jar
If the coconut oil is too hard, create a double boiler to soften the coconut oil a bit. Do not put it in the microwave because this zaps the nutrients from the coconut oil.
Mix the sugar, coconut oil, lemon essential oil, and lemon zest in a bowl. Be sure to wash the lemon before you zest it!
Transfer to a 4oz glass jar with an airtight lid. In the shower, gently scrub to exfoliate and moisturize!
