Coconut Lime Salt Scrub
DIY Coconut Lime Salt Scrub
As a stay at home mom I don’t get out of the house to go to the spa like I used to. There are those few days when I can manage to get a nice long hot shower all by myself and during that time I like to feel a little pampered but I like to do it on a budget. Making this coconut lime salt scrub at home is not only super easy to do but it is also very budget friendly!
I started making my own spa and beauty items at home and after making this coconut lime scrub I was hooked on DIY and started making all sorts of awesome DIY goodies!
When I’m buying my ingredients for my salt scrubs I like to buy the items in bulk when I can. This way I never run out and I can make them whenever I want!

Homemade Salt Scrub Benefits
Salt scrubs are the most popular body treatment at the spa and for good reason, they leave your skin feeling amazing! Having a salt scrub at the spa is one of my favorite things. The purpose of a salt scrub is to exfoliate the skin, which removes the outermost layer of dead skin cells. The Epson salt or sea salt is a great way to exfoliate and the coconut oil helps moisturizes your skin.
Enjoying a salt scrub leaves your skin softer and smoother.
How Do You Use Homemade Salt Scrub
Start with a warm hot shower, and allow the water to soak your skin for 5-10 minutes. Then step out from under the water and apply the salt scrub on the places you want to use it using a circular motion.
Be sure to only apply gentle pressure while applying the salt scrub so you do not damage your skin.
Rinse the salt scrub off under the water and dry your body completely when you get out of the shower.

Coconut Lime Salt Scrub Directions
In a small bowl use a micro zester grater to zest the green skin of your limes, making sure you are only removing the outer green.
Cut one of the limes in half and squeeze out 1 teaspoon of lime juice.
In a medium mixing bowl stir together the lime juice, salt, coconut oil and coconut extract.
Gently stir in the lime zest to the coconut mixture and be sure to mix well.
