Roll the lemon on your countertop a few times, using the palm of your hand to gently apply pressure to the lemon. This aids in squeezing out the juices of the lemon. Cut the lemon in half and squeeze the lemon juice into a small bowl. Remove all seeds.
The next thing you need to do is to measure approximately ¼ or ½ cup of sea salt. This will depend on the size of your airtight glass container. Pour your sea salt into the bowl that has your lemon juice.
Mix the lemon juice and the sea salt together until it resembles a thin paste. If you need more lemon juice to achieve this, add more lemon juice. If you accidentally added too much lemon juice, no worries, simply add a little bit more sea salt.
Pour the lemon sea salt scrub into your airtight container and cover then store in your refrigerator. Take your scrub out of your refrigerator when you are ready to use it. To use: simply dip your fingers in your glass container and massage into your skin avoiding your eyes, and rinse. This is typically done best in a bath or shower, or over a sink while washing your face.
