DIY Grapefruit Citrus Body Scrub

If you’re in need of an invigorating and exfoliating bath product, why not try this amazing Grapefruit Citrus Body Scrub? Made with fresh grapefruit zest and essential oils, you will find it an amazing home beauty recipe that will make you feel fantastic. I love this after a trip to the beach. It helps get all the salt water and sand off, and it moisturizes and exfoliates to help if you’ve had a little too much sun!

Best of all it smells fantastic and will awaken your spirit when you feel a little low. The benefits of Grapefruit Essential Oil are that it inspires and clears the mind while eliminating emotional confusion and increases one’s sense of humor and well being.

Here’s what you’ll need:

1 C Epsom salt
1/2 C Coconut oil
Fresh Grapefruit Zest
Grapefruit Essential Oil

Add the coconut  oil in a medium bowl. Use the back of a spoon to smash it up (if it’s in a liquid state you can skip this part!). Add the Epsom salt and mix it together.

Mix in the Grapefruit essential oil and then add in the grapefruit zest. Stir until fully combined. You can store this in a small jar and keep it in the shower for about two weeks (if it lasts that long!).
