I prefer to grate more than I need to use, and store the rest in a container for the next time. You can store it for months in a dry and dark place.

Add dried citrus zest to the coconut oil and mix well together. Since zest is quite soft (compared to sugar or salt scrubs), I like to add a lot of it to the scrub. My oil and zest proportions are 1:1
