Now is the time to be thinking about DIY Holiday Gifts, and what better way than with a homemade, soothing body scrub? We're mixing together bright pops of grapefruit with silky Filippo Berio Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil and sugar to create a perfect holiday gift.
Filippo Berio Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, which is certified USDA organic, is the perfect pairing for this scrub. It helps the sugar and grapefruit juice bind together, without allowing it to dissolve completely. It also softens any dry patches, and helps the sugar melt into the surface of the skin.
Once this scrub is made, pack it into resealable jars and save some for yourself, or give them out as gifts to others! It's a great way to give someone the gift of relaxation, right in their very own home.

In a medium mixing bowl, add in sugar, grapefruit zest and a ¼ cup of grapefruit juice. Using a wooden spoon, or other large serving spoon, stir until a sandy consistency is achieved. Then stream in the oil, stirring continuously until combined.
Pack into resealable jars. When ready for use, apply in gentle, circular motions until the olive oil has soaked into the skin and the sugar has begun to dissolve.
