      The lifetime with the orange zest in it will definitely be shorter than without it. If you would like to make a larger batch and keep it for a while I would omit the zest. When I said 1 part it means that everything is equal in comparison to each other. So if you wanted to make a larger batch and you used 1 cup sugar you would then use 2 cups of sea salt and 3 cups of Kelapo coconut oil. If you want to make a smaller batch then just reduce the amount of sugar which in turn would reduce the amount of salt and coconut oil.

    Growing up my mom used to make her own coconut oil which was used for cooking, skin and hair.
