I could have sworn I posted this before, but apparently not! The fastest and easiest way to get beautiful, glowing, touchable skin is by exfoliating with an oily scrub. And b-b-b-b-b-bonus: a study by the Smell and Taste Institute of Chicago found that when women smelled like grapefruit, men guessed their ages to be 6 years younger than they really were. This also makes a really great and affordable gift during the holidays. Smooth skin, the perception of youth, giftable, and all natural ingredients? You’re welcome, from the bottom of my big shiny heart.
Grapefruit Body Scrub
makes enough for 2-3 uses
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup salt, I used pink Himalayan sea salt
30 drops of grapefruit essential oil
1 tsp grapefruit zest
Mix everything together. Before your next hot date, get into a steamy shower and scrub yourself from head to toe, being very gentle on your face and chest. You can rinse off the salt and shave your legs because they will be nice and slick. You can use a little soap to wash it off after if you don’t like that greased up body builder look, but it will absorb within a few minutes when you get out of the shower and have more moisturizing power if you leave it on. It makes a fantastic foot scrub as well.
