Sea Salt Scrub recipe

Scrubs made with either salt or sugar are a great way to exfoliate and give your skin a healthy glow.

Sea salt can be healing if not over-used, but can sting if skin is sensitive, irritated or thin. Do not use a salt scrub on skin that has just been waxed or shaved.

Sea Salt Scrub

2 cups of sea salt (finely ground is best as coarser salt may be a bit abrasive)
¾ cup olive oil
40-60 drops essential oil – rosemary, peppermint, sweet orange, grapefruit or rose geranium all work well

Combine the salt and olive oil in a bowl using a whisk to blend. Add the essential oil a few drops at a time whisking as you go.

Spoon into an air-tight container with a good lid. Use within 6 months.

To use:  using a circular motion massage ¼ to ½ a cup of scrub into damp skin. Rinse with warm water.

Not suitable for sensitive or damaged skin.
