DIY Lemon Salt Scrub


I was browsing Pinterest a few days ago and I came across this DIY lemon salt scrub 
that looked so lovely. To my surprise it was extremely easy to make, which is always nice, right?  

I love using salt/sugar scrubs especially in the summer time as an exfoliator and since 
this recipe calls for coconut oil, it makes a great moisturizer as well. 


  What you'll need: 
1/4 Cup of coconut oil
1 Cup of sea salt
1 tsp. lemon juice
A small airtight container ( a small mason jar works perfectly) 

** To be honest I sort of guestimated on the measurements. I just added 
them together until i got a damp / sandy like mixture **
 
First, I poured the salt into a bowl then added in the oil a little at a time.  
I started to mix it together with a spoon, but I ended up just mixing it with
 my hands! It will get a bit messy, but it's so much easier and you also get to exfoliate
 your hands! Bonus! After thats all mixed in, you can squeeze the lemon juice 
into the mixture. 
** Sidenote- If you use this while in the shower, be careful because the shower
 floor will be slippery!! **

If any of you try out this recipe, let me know how it works out!

Introducing My Etsy Shop //

So I guess making dreamcatchers is my new thing..?  I recently added a couple new ones
 to my Etsy shop which you can find here.  They're sort of a modern/bohemian take on your 
average dremcatcher. I have a ton hanging in my room and I admit, they're extremely cute.
