DIY Lavender Salt Scrub

Hi everyone,

Today I have a DIY project to share with you.  I have been wanting to make my own Lavender Salt Scrub.  What a great way to unwind after a long day or to pamper your skin during the winter months.  All you need are three ingredients and a glass jar - simple and easy!

Epsom salt is fantastic for exfoliating your skin and making it feel soft.  Coconut oil helps to moisturize dry skin.  Lavender essential oil adds the perfect aroma to your scrub.


In a glass bowl, mix Epsom salt, coconut oil and Lavender essential oil.


I then added a teaspoon of organic dried lavender buds (optional).


These particular buds are "Ultra Blue" grown in the Provence region of France, near Montbrun Les Bains.


Transfer mixture to a glass jar with covered lid.


Decorate with a pretty label and ribbon.



Ingredients:

  • 1 cup Epsom Salt
  • 1/2 cup organic extra-virgin coconut oil
  • 8 drops Lavender essential oil
  • Organic dried lavender buds (optional)
Since I enjoy making scrubs I do them in smaller batches.  You can double the recipe for a pint sized mason jar.  Please remember to always use therapeutic-grade essential oils since this will be going on your skin.

Happy exfoliating!

I have heard of lavender sugar – but not salt, interesting :-) And your jar is so pretty, you are so clever with all your projects Donna!
