Rosemary and Lemon Salt Scrub Recipe

Rosemary and Lemon Salt Scrub Recipe

I love using salt and sugar scrubs, and with the abundance of lemons growing in my backyard, I attempted to make a rosemary and lemon salt scrub. While most people make them using essential oils, I made them using only ingredients from my backyard lemons. I was able to use the rinds  from the lemons to make lemon infused bath salts, so I didn’t waste any part of the lemon. If you are going to use store bought lemons vs. organic, then I would recommend doubling the lemons used in this recipe since store bought have fewer juices and scent.
