Homemade citrus face scrub

PetitElefant shows us how to make a citrus and salt scrub. She says it smells like heaven in the shower, a little drop of citrus sunshine for your day.

 

You will need:

1/2 cup sea salt
1/2 cup olive oil
1 or 2 slices of lemon
1 or 2 slices of orange

Here's how:

Step 1

Add the olive oil and sea salt into a bowl or blender. You can do this one of two ways: in a blender, or in a bowl. If you do it by hand in a bowl, chop up the peel really really well, or omit the peels completely.

I personally really like chunks of citrus peel in my citrus scrub. Makes it more, citrus-y and exfoliate-ish.

Step 2

I used about two slices of lemon and two slices of orange and popped them straight into the blender.

Again, if you’re not going to use a blender, chop the pieces up really really small. I used both the fruit and the peel, because I was using the blender, but if you aren’t using a blender squeeze the fruit as much as you can to get the juice out. You want all the juice you can get, and then chop up the peel and mix it up in a bowl.
