Living in the South, citrus fruit abounds! Fresh, juicy, beautiful grapefruits can be enjoyed at almost any time of year. But in springtime, 10 pounds bags start to go on sale and for around $5 you can get all the grapefruit you can eat!
After I've exhausted my appetite for grapefruit salad, infused water, fresh squeezed juice, or just a quick snack I find that I still have at least a few grapefruits leftover. Not one to let it go to waste and knowing what an amazing scent it adds to homemade beauty recipes, I decided to whip up a batch of this Homemade Grapefruit Sugar Scrub Recipe.
