Lemon, Thyme, and Bergamot Salt Scrub
Yield: 1 1/2 cups
Prep: 15 minutes
Glass jar with a tight-fitting lid
1 cup sea salt
1/2 cup pure organic almond oil
About 1/2 teaspoon oil of bergamot
Zest of one organic lemon
2 teaspoons fresh organic thyme leaves
1. Remove the thyme leaves from their stems and chop lightly if necessary to break up large clusters. Zest the lemon using a microplaner or citrus zester.
2. Pour the salt into the jar, layering with the thyme and lemon zest.
3. Pour the almond oil over the top. Add the oil of bergamot.
4. Carefully stir the contents of the jar until the oil mixture and salt mixture are fully combined.
Give the jar a fresh stir to mix the oil and salt together, and scrub yourself down in the bath or shower! The scrub will keep for up to 6 months stored in an airtight container at room temperature.
