DIY Salt Scrub similar to Lush Ocean Salt

Watch the video here!

1 tbsp lime juice
1/2 an avocado smashed
1 tbsp grapefruit juice
1-2 tbsp coconut oil (melted)
3/4 to 1 cup sea salt (course and/or fine)

Overall, I added about a cup of sea salt.  I gradually added in the salt to get the consistency I wanted, with a roughly 2:1 coarse to fine sea salt ratio.  If you would like to use this as a facial scrub, use more fine than coarse, but since I was making a body scrub, I decided to use more coarse sea salt than fine.  Depending on how big your avocado was or how much coconut oil you ended up using, you may need to use more or less sea salt to get the consistency you like.  Since this scrub should be stored in the fridge because of all the fresh ingredients used in it, keep in mind that when it's cool, it's going to end up having a thicker consistency, so if it's a tad watered down when you make it at room temperature, it should be perfect once cooled in the fridge.

I prefer to measure out about 1/2 cup of the salts, then add in the avocado, mix, then the coconut oil and mix.  If you were to add the grapefruit and lime juices directly to the salt, you risk dissolving some of the salt, so I like the add the more oily ingredients first to kind of protect the salts from the juices later on. 

This should be stored in the fridge.

Thanks for reading!
