Citrus Crush Salt Scrub.
The bright orange color of this salt scrub comes from Carrot Oil. We've used this boldly colored oil in a small proportion due to its potency. The majority of the Oil in this recipe is Jojoba Oil, a moisturizing Oil with a pleasant, light texture. The scrub is scented with Ginger and Tangerine Essential Oils, giving it a sunny, energizing aroma to match its bright, cheerful appearance.
Makes about 4 ounces
1/2 cup Sea Salt, Fine (or coarse if you prefer)
1 ounce Jojoba Oil
1 teaspoon Carrot Oil
10 drops Ginger Essential Oil
20 drops Tangerine Essential Oil
In a small mixing bowl, combine the Sea Salt, Carrot Oil, and Jojoba Oil. Stir the mixture well to ensure an even color in the scrub. Next, add the Tangerine and Ginger Essential Oils, and mix again. Carefully spoon the mixture into jars when finished.
Usage & Packaging
Citrus Essential Oils, such as Tangerine Essential Oil, can cause photosensitivity. Keep this in mind when using this scrub. The Scrub should either be followed with a body wash, or used at night to reduce sensitivity caused by the Essential Oil.
If you don't have all of the above ingredients, feel free to replace them with something similar. Jojoba oil can be replaced with Sunflower oil or Olive oil. Tangerine Oil can be replaced with Mandarin oil or any other citrus oil.
