DIY Citrus Salt Scrub

It’s that time of year. Where you need all the exfoliation you can get! Everyone wants fabulous beach-ready skin! And lets be real, if you’re anything like me… exfoliating just didn’t seam important when you’re all covered up in winter clothing. Well, now it’s time to peel of those layers of clothing AND skin! Here is a fantastic recipe and I just know you will have all the ingredients in your kitchen.
What you will need:
    • 1 cup sea salt
    • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
      (or olive, almond or coconut oil) 
    • 1/2 tsp lemon juice (or zest) 
    • 1/2 tsp orange zest (not necessary)

    • First mix the oil and sea salt together. (Add a bit of oil at a time, you may not need all that is called for! I've made a few batches, each time it's taken different amounts.) 
    • Add orange zest. 
    • Drizzle the lemon juice over the salt and oil mix.(you do not want too much lemon juice, or else your mixture will become a watery consistency.)
    • Mix well. Store in a air tight container.
How to exfoliate: Clean body as normal in shower.  Just before getting out, apply salt scrub in a firm circular motion all over body.  Concentrating on those knees and elbows! Rinse and pat dry with towel.
Now I’m ready for the beach.
If only there were beaches in Tennessee!!!
