Tutorial: Natural citrus hand and body scrub.

I bought some amazingly amazing oranges at the grocery store. I felt like a little kid getting orange juice all over my face, seriously. They were SO good.. Anyways, I didn't want to waste the orange peel so I was thinking of something I could do with them and then it hit me; Citrus Scrub. Yum. I love this stuff!

  • Two oranges
  • 3 cups of sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup Olive Oil
  • 1 tbsp Lemon Juice (optional)
  • Mason jar, or tub for storage
  • Food processor or Blender
First peel your oranges, and save about 1/4 of the actual orange. Throw the peels and 1/4 orange in your food processor with 1 cup of water, and lemon juice. Let the mixture puree for a good few minutes. 

Start adding your sugar, and olive oil.  Test the mixture, if you don't feel that it's gritty enough you can always add more sugar.

I'm keeping mine under the sink to use after I wash my hands, but you could also keep in the shower to use as an all over body scrub. Just make sure you pat dry, other wise the olive oil won't soak into your skin!

  1. Does this scrub go bad because it has fresh orange peel and oranges in it?
