DIY Citrus Salt Scrub Recipe

Servings: 1 cups
Author: Shelby Stover


  • 1 cup fine grain Himalayan salt*
  • 1/8 cup + 1tablespoon oil*
  • 1 tablespoon unscented castile soap
  • 2 teaspoons grated orange peel about the size of one small orange
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon peel about the size of one lemon
  • 8 drops grapefruit essential oil


  • In a small bowl, combine the salt and grated peels. Add in the oil and soaps and stir to combine until everything looks “wet”.
  • Portion out into jars and use at your leisure!


  • Both white sugar or salt will work so long as it is fine grainRegular salt will be too abrasive on the skin. 
  • Use whatever oil you have on hand: avocado, jojoba, almond and olive oil all work. 
  • If you don’t have an orange and lemon, use essential oils! Divide the oils so the total amount workout out to 15-20 drops. 
  • Keep this sealed and try not to get water inside the scrub. Water causes mold. Use a spoon when portioning out from the jar and it will last longer.
