I used a blood orange for my scrub, this this also works great with clementines, tangerines, grapefruit, or lemons. Since you will be rubbing the zest on your skin, I would definitely recommend choosing an organic fruit.
This scrub will leave your skin silky-soft and is perfect for sloughing away any dry, flaky winter skin. The citrus and coconut oil smells delicious and is a wonderful pick-me-up first thing in the morning. The hardest part is not eating it!
