A super-stimulating, super-easy citrus salt glow recipe.
This invigorating do-it-yourself body scrub is excellent for shedding that outer layer of dulling, dead skin cells. The orange peel conditions skin and gives the scrub a revitalizing dose of aromatherapy while the salt whisks away dead skin cells to reveal your true inner glow. The essential oil is optional but amps up the relaxation.
Here’s what you need:
- 1/3 cup of fine sea salt
- 1/3 cup of safflower oil
- Zest of one orange
- 2 to 3 drops orange essential oil (optional)
Here’s what you do:
Mix salt, oil and zest in a bowl. For an extra punch of fragrance add a few drops of orange essential oil, which has astringent and skin conditioning properties. In the shower or bath, use all over the body but avoid face and sensitive areas or open cuts. Focus on elbows, knees and feet and never shave before using a salt scrub, only after.
