DIY Coconut Lime Salt Scrub
1 cup coarse salt
½ cup organic coconut oil (solid softened)
1 tsp. coconut extract or coconut essential oil (optional)
1. Grate the skin of your limes- a micro planer works best and you only want the green not the white (pith) Get as much of the skin as you an.
2. Combine coarse sea salt, coconut oil, coconut extract/coconut essential oil (optional), and 1 tsp. of lime juice in a bowl- stir until well combined. You may need to adjust the ratio of coconut oil to salt to get the consistency you like.
3. Gently stir in lime zest to mix.
4. Transfer your mixture to an airtight jar – glass is always best when using citrus as the oils can erode at plastic.
