Shea Butter scrub with a zing of citrus, is a fab recipe for making your skin super soft.  Use it from your toes to your nose and all parts in between for happy, healthy skin.

It can be used all over the body, and is soft enough to use on the face. It has a great aroma, and its gentle polishing effect removes old surface skin cells, and helps keep wrinkles at bay [1]. This action not only enables moisturizers to penetrate more deeply, it also works to clear any blocked pores.


  • Shea Butter
  • Orange essential oil
  • Brown sugar


Slightly warm the Shea Butter and add a drop of orange essential oil and half a teacup or less of brown sugar. Bear in mind that this can be for one or two treatments, so work out how much you need accordingly.

Apply the Shea Butter Brown Sugar Citrus Scrub with your hands once a week while you are showering, of just before you get in the bath. As you put it on, use a massaging action. Avoid putting it on close to the eye area.

(Note: this scrub keeps for around a week, so you could make a batch for two treatments).
