1 cup of sugar or baking soda
1/2 cup of coconut oil or olive oil
1 teaspoon of lemon zest
1-2 drops of lemon extract (optional)
Simply mix all ingredients together and place in an air tight glass container (use baking soda if you have sensitive or dry skin). In order to use as a body scrub, replace sugar with sea salt or Epson salt.
