Today I want to introduce you to the salt scrub. I've created a number of sugar scrubs throughout the last year but have yet to dabble in the salt scrub. To be honest, I was a little skeptical of it. Sugar scrubs smell (and taste) wonderfully plus do such a great job at exfoliating the skin, so it was easy to stick with creating sugar scrubs. But now I'm proud to admit I'm a firm believer in the salt scrub. This particular scrub is great for those tired mornings. While the salt removes old skin cells and makes the skin extra smooth, the lemon revives and freshens your skin, giving you a fresh, lightened glow. Lemon is also used to fight acne and helps prevent future breakouts.
1/2 cup sea salt
2 tbsp coconut oil (jojoba and grapeseed oil works as well)
Begin by melting the oil on the stove top. Once melted, pour into a glass bowl. Cut the lemon in half and squeeze all of the juice into the bowl. Lastly, mix in the salt and store in a sealable container. You may need more or less salt than the recipe requires, depending on the amount of juice you squeeze from the lemon. You want the texture to be smooth with no clumps, but where no extra oil is sitting in the bottom of the bowl.
tip* try adding in a tsp of honey to the mix for extra smooth skin.
I'm not sure of the shelf life, but if you store it in a cool, dry area it should have a relatively long shelf life.
