Pink Grapefruit and Vanilla Body Scrub

by Emma Peters August 29, 2014

This heavenly Pink Grapefruit and Vanilla Body Scrub recipe is one of my all time favorite indulgences. I must admit though that I’ve used it so regularly, it’s now totally essential to my existence! It’s so simple to make but it seems so luxurious. I put it in fancy jars to give away as gifts, if you think about it, body scrubs can be pretty pricey. Especially those that are free from nasty bulking agents.

Mix 1 Cup of Coconut Oil (room temperature not liquid) with 2 Cups of Pink Fine Himalayan Salt. Or any sea salt will do, it just must be finely ground so it exfoliates without scratching. The salt will remove excess dead skin cells while the coconut oil will leave the skin smooth and moisturised. It also has fantastic anti-microbal and anti-fungal properties which may help keep body odors at bay (the hubby swears by it just quietly!)

Next mix in 1 tablespoon of Organic Vanilla Essence (the kind you use for baking) and 30 drops of Grapefruit Essential Oil. I absolutely adore doTerra‘s Grapefruit Oil. They are Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade oils. You could even ingest it, it’s that pure!

The awesome thing about this scrub, apart from the scrumptious smell and the decadent feeling left on your skin, is that grapefruit attacks cellulite. Smooth skin and reduced cellulite…winning combo!!
