I suffer from food color allergies, so I have to so super careful about what’s in the products in that I use. Many more people are coming forward in understanding how food dye colors affect your body from the inside to the outside. That’s why I love making my own products. I don’t have to second guess what ingredients are inside the products that I’m using and having to read every single label.
I love being able to use basic ingredients in my body scrubs that aren’t harmful and filled with other chemicals. In fact, with my red grapefruit body scrub you use fresh red grapefruit and red grapefruit zest! The smell is absolutely amazing, especially if you love a great citrus smelling product.
Just look at the fresh juice that was squeezed out the red grapefruits! I love how the smell of red grapefruit body scrubs stays with you throughout the day, and not just a few minutes.

Red Grapefruit Body Scrub DIY Tutorial
Ingredients for Red Grapefruit Body Scrub:
- 1 cup Epsom salt
- 1/4 cup melted coconut oil (or olive oil)
- 1 Tbsp fresh grated red grapefruit zest
- 1/4 cup fresh red grapefruit juice
Mix the epsom salt, coconut oil and the zest together. Next slowly pour in the juice – mix it and see how saturated you’ll like it to be. I prefer body scrubs to be a little moist, so it’s not too rough on the skin. Store in an airtight container.
I recently came across a spearmint infused epsom salt, so you can add a little zest to your life with that! It smells fabulous, and I can’t wait to make another body scrub with it.
