How to Make Lemon Salt Scrub

By Paula Jones
Created January 10, 2017
Your pantry has all of the ingredients you need to make this homemade skin-smoothing recipe.

What you’ll need:

  • 5 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon peel
  • ½ cup kosher (coarse) salt
  • Container with tight-fitting cover 

How to: 

1. In a container with a tight-fitting cover, mix all of the ingredients. 

2. Place approximately one tablespoon of scrub on skin at a time (avoiding contact with eyes). Scrub onto skin in a circular motion using washcloth or hands. Leave on for 3 to 5 minutes. 

3. Rinse with warm water, and pat dry with a towel. (Not intended for consumption.) 

Expert Tips:

  • This recipe can be easily doubled or tripled.
  • If the scrub is too coarse for your preference, add an additional tablespoon of oil.
  • For a twist, add a teaspoon of finely chopped rosemary.
