{DIY} Exfoliating Sea Salt Body Scrub

Ingredients: 1 cup of sea salt and 1/2 cup of baby, almond, jojoba or argan oil.
(Just 2 simple ingredients, but they’re magic together!)

 Directions:

  1. Mix together the sea salt and oil.
  2. Massage onto wet skin paying close attention to your elbows, knees and feet (body wash is optional).
  3. Rinse well with warm water.
  4. Pat yourself dry with a towel.

Gentle Lavender Honey Scrub

  • 1/3 cup super fine granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 4-5 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 10 drops Young Living Lavender essential oil

Stir all ingredients together.  This made exactly enough to fill a small 4 oz. mason jar/jelly jar.  Store in a cool, dark place.  (I keep mine under our bathroom sink.)

How I use it:  First, since it is so warm in Louisiana, the coconut oil is liquid, so I use a popsicle stick to recombine the lavender honey scrub.
