Here's what you'll need:
1) 1 - cup of sea salt
2) 1/4 cup of vegetable oil
3) 1/2 teaspoon of lemon juice
4) 1/2 teaspoon of orange zest (optional)
Now how to mix
Slowly add your oil to the sea salt and drizzle the lemon juice over the salt and oil mixture. Mix well. Keep in mind that you may not need to use all of the oil and adding too much lemon juice may make your mixture watery. Test the consistency as you are mixing
Now to store your mixture
You may have an old mason jar in the kitchen, if not, they are inexpensive to purchase. Whatever you use, make sure that it is air tight, complete with a lid.
That's it! Walla...Now you have your very own, homemade exfoliating scrub. After you shower, rub gently in a circular motion over your body, focusing on those knees, heels and elbows. Pat dry. You're done!
P.S. This would make for a great gift for anyone. They will love you for it :)
