Coconut Lime Salt Scrub
- 3/4 cup melted organic, virgin coconut oil (if you don’t care for the smell of coconut, it’s fine to use a different base oil like jojoba or sweet almond oil)
- 1/8 cup olive oil
- 1 tsp vitamin E oil (acts as a preservative)
- 2 cups sea salt
- 40 drops of lime essential oil
- 15 drops tangerine essential oil
- pint-sized mason jar (I use these)
1. Melt coconut oil by placing it in a glass measuring cup in a pan of water over low heat.
2. Mix the melted coconut oil with olive oil, vitamin E, and salt.
3. Add essential oils and stir.
4. Store scrub in a pint-sized glass Mason jar at room temperature. Stir each time you use it as the oil will separate a bit. I keep a little spoon next to my jar in the bathroom.
Use the scrub to exfoliate your skin in the bath or shower or after hand-washing. Rinse with warm water just long enough to remove the salt and then rub the coconut oil into your skin. Be cautious as the coconut oil may leave your tub or shower slick. You will not believe how soft your skin will be, and the scent is amazing.
Homemade sea salt scrubs are so much better than store bought scrubs. You know exactly what’s going into your scrub, they are super simple to make, you can use any essential oil you love. They also make fabulous gifts for your friends.

Never use essential oils undiluted, in the eyes or mucus membranes. Do not ingest unless working with a qualified practitioner. Keep essential oils away from children. If applying an essential oil to your skin always perform a small patch test to an insensitive part of the body (after you have properly diluted the oil in an appropriate carrier oil).
