Treat yourself or your friends with this body scrub, it removes dead and flaky skin cells. Instead of the orange you can turn this into a lemon or lime scrub. The essential oil is optional but it does give it a nice smell. The salt will settle, shake the jar before use.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix the salt with the oil and soap in a glass bowl, and then add the essential oil.
  2. Transfer to a plastic or glass jar.
  3. Use as a body scrub when having a bath or a shower, rinse off with warm water.

Love this recipe and so does everyone who's received it as gifts.. I use tea tree essential oil instead of orange and skip the zest. I also use sweet almond oil. I also use Olay's hypo-allergenic soap and it turns out great. Thank you so much for posting this recipe.

I gave jars of this along with homeade soap and bath salts to the girls at work for Christmas. I left out the orange zest and it still turned out wonderful. I used tangerine essential oil because I liked it a little better and I also made a lemon thyme version. This is the bomb! My friends dove right into this and declared it better than any store bought they have ever spent a small fortune on. I've been asked to make more so we can have it in the office. One friend is on a quest to find my 'secret-family-recipe' and won't stop bugging me for it! I can't tell you how excited I am to have this, Thanx!
