I have to tell you, when I saw this pin on Pinterest I almost screamed with excitement. I love scrubs and always forget to use them. What I really loved about this scrub is that it only had four simple ingredients. (Click on the photo to go to the original source.)
Instead of the posted recipe, I used:
1/4 C olive oil - 1/4 C course sea salt - several orange slices- a few drops of lemon juice – blender/food processor*
*I ain’t got none of dem fancy blender or food processor gadgets, so I jus use what I got. Ahem, I’m back now. Had a little episode of backwoods redneck for a minute there. (Don’t go thinking I was making fun either. Some of my favorite people ever are backwoods rednecks and they’re everywhere, not just in the good ol’ south!)
The pseudo food processor/blender didn’t do a great job of making the salt any finer or the peel any finer. It was basically just like putting the ingredients into a bowl and giving it a good stir. I think the results would be better had I used an actual appliance that didn’t cost $10.
My nose tells me that the smell of olive oil is still very present in this ratio so I added more orange peel and juice and I can say that the olive oil has lessened in the past several hours and now smells more citrusy.
Next time I think I’ll use kosher salt instead. The sea salt just seemed to be too large of a peice to me.
I’m going to keep on working on this to fine tune it to my liking. Don’t you think scrub in a cute little glass container like this would be cute for a little gift? I do!
