DIY Home-Made Sea Salt Scrub

















Use this simple sea salt scrub to exfoliate and soften dry skin. It takes only three ingredients and one minute to make. 

For an easy and inexpensive DIY holiday gift, make a big batch and package it in decorative glass jars. Increase the ingredients as needed and always use two parts sea salt to one part almond oil.

I added peppermint essential oil because it feels festive and seasonal. You can substitute any essential oil you like, like lavender or grapefruit or juniper, or use a combination. But choose only pure essential oils, never perfume or fragranced oils.

1 cup sea salt
1/2 cup almond oil
3 to 5 drops essential oil of peppermint (or other)

Stir together the sea salt and almond oil, then stir in the essential oil. Store in an air-tight glass container at room temperature.

To use the sea salt scrub, stand in a bathtub or shower and scrub small palmfuls of the mixture over your skin. Rinse thoroughly with warm water and pat dry.
