Make: Citrus Salt Scrub

recipes, tutorial  |  November 30th 2011  |  0 Comment

 

Here is another handmade Christmas present I’m giving out this year.

Its my Citrus Salt Scrub.

This is so easy and cheap to make and will last a while too. All ingredients are easy to find at your local supermarket so they wont send you searching the town for them.

What you will need (this will make up one small jar like the picture above):

  • Small Jar
  • Wooden Spoon or something to use to get the scrub out of the jar
  • 1 Cup Sea Salt Flakes
  • 1 Cup Grapeseed Oil (you can also use sweet almond oil, avocado oil, even extra virgin olive oil)
  • 1 Teaspoon Lemon Zest
  • 1 Teaspoon Orange Zest

In a medium dry bowl, combine all the salt, oil, and citrus zest. DO NOT let any water touch the mix as it will dissolve the salt.

Pour the mix into an airtight glass jar and store in a cool dry place.

Directions to use:

Just before you shower, while you are still dry, mix the scrub to ensure that salt has not settled in the jar. Add some to a wash cloth. Whilst showering, using a circular motion apply the Citrus Salt Scrub to your body, exfoliate, rinse off  and dry with a clean towel.  Your skin will feel soft and smooth once done.

When  giving out as a gift, I like to make handmade labels for the jar. One with the name, Citrus Salt Scrub for the front or the top of the lid and another for the back with directions for use. I also like to tie on a wooden spoon (available from cheap dollar stores) using twine or ribbon to the jar to complete the gift.

There you have it; a cheap, easy and natural  handmade gift.

If you have any questions, please post in the comments below and I will try to answer them.
