Clean Living // Summer Citrus Scrub


This is such a great summer scrub. Having soft skin during the summer is such a good feeling, especially when your clothes consist of shorts, dresses, sandals, and bathing suits. All that heat can dry out your skin, so giving it a soft, silky smooth glow is just what it needs after a long day in the sun. 

Ingredients: 

1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup sugar
2 tbsp lemon juice
10 drops tea tree oil
10 drops orange essential oil (or 1 tsp ground orange peels)

Mix all the ingredients together and store them in a sealable container. To use, exfoliate your skin in the shower, rinse and repeat. Use once a week for best results. Happy scrubbing!

  11. Just by looking at the ingredients I can tell that it would be a great scrub. I'm sure it smells wonderful. I love coconut and tea tree oils for the skin. Plus, you can't go wrong with a homemade scrub in which you know all of the ingredients; thanks for sharing!
