Corrie’s Kitchen Spa: Citrus Salt Body Scrub Corrie’s Kitchen Spa: Citrus Salt Body Scrub

A wonderful exfoliant and full body moisturizer for use in the shower. Leave a jar near your outdoor shower at the beach to add a healthy glow to dull dry skin.

Servings: 2
Prep Time: 5 min
Difficulty: Easy

Ingredients Add to grocery list

1/2 cup sea salt
1/2 cup sweet almond oil
(can substitute light olive oil or vegetable oil)
1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
1/2 teaspoon orange zest





In a medium dry bowl, combine all ingredients making sure to not let any water touch them as it will dissolve the salt. Pour mixture into an airtight container and store in a cool dry place.

To use: Just before showering, swirl ingredients together with your fingertips to mix. Clean body completely and just before exiting shower, apply Citrus Salt Body Scrub to body in a firm circular scrubbing motion with hands or a soft washcloth. Rinse off the mixture and pat body dry with a clean towel.

Have all the ingredients and am making some tonight. Actually will make two batches, since Mother's Day is Sunday and my mom has everything she wants/needs, so maybe she will like this as much as I think I will.

By Michelle on April 20, 2012


Hi there everyone. Paula Deen - thanks for this one. I also substituted virgin coconut in lieu of almond oil, and added ground dried shredded sweeteneded coconut - about the same amount as the salt. I used a little less oil than directed. Mary
