Boy do I have a treat for you today! For the holidays this year, the gentleman and I did a little homemade gift bag for all of his brothers and their wives/fiances (3 brothers!) I’ll be sharing bits and pieces of the gift bags this week and next! Today is all about salt scrubs!
The best part of this gift is the fact that the ingredients are super easy to find (you might even have most of them at home)!
I made a lemon version and a lavender version, so I’ll include the ingredients for both.
4 parts coarse sea salt
1 part fragrance free oil (I used sunflower oil, but you can use olive or sweet almond oil too)
zest of one lemon (for approximately 1 cup of sea salt)
1 tsp lemon extract
2-3 drops of lavender essential oil
I used literally one tiny drop of purple food coloring to give the scrub some color (don’t worry, it won’t stain your hands! I tested it loads just to make sure)
I bought the jars from Ikea for $3.00/jar. You can use anything you like though!
1. Combine all ingredients with a spatula. Make sure nothing gets wet as that will dissolve the salt. That’s it! So easy!
2. To use, just apply a tsp or two after you shower. Rinse with warm water.
I use this scrub all the time, and I’m obsessed with it. My hands are super soft, and it is perfect for harsh, cold weather! Enjoy, and let me know if you end up making it!
