Exfoliating Citrus Scrub Bars
These fresh citrus exfoliating shower or bath bars will gently soften and moisturize your skin giving you a lovely springtime glow. Lather your body with the refreshing and energizing scent of fresh citrus while removing dead skin cells. Making these bars small for one-time use works best as they are meant to dissolve in warm water. You can switch up the scent by using different essential oils and fresh herbs or flowers for some decorative flair.
Ingredients and supplies you will need:
- Fine Sugar or Sea salt
- Coconut oil
- Shea Butter
- Beeswax Pellets
- Cruz Hemp Sweet Orange Essential Oil
- Citrus zest from an orange or lemon
- Silicone mold or ice tray
Fill a pot with 2 inches of water and place on low-medium heat.
Place a shallow glass or metal bowl on top to create a double boiler.
Water shouldn’t be touching the bowl. Bring water to a simmer.
Add 1/3 cup coconut oil to the bowl when water is simmering.
Add 1 1/2 tablespoons Shea Butter to bowl.
Add 1/4 cup Beeswax Pellets to the bowl.
Slowly whisk together until ingredients are fully melted.
Remove bowl from the double boiler with hot pads.
Whisk in 20 drops of Cruz Hemp Sweet orange oil.
Wait for the oil to cool slightly before adding dry the ingredients.
Add 1 cup of finely ground sugar or salt.
Pour a little in at a time to make sure it does not dissolve.
Quickly pour the liquid into molds before it cools.
Add some citrus zest to the top of each bar.
Put shower bars in the fridge to cool for 30 minutes then pop out of the mold.
Package into a decorative bag or cellophane wrap.
