Homemade Body Scrub Recipe

bath saltWant to make some awesome homemade bath scrub? Well, you are in luck. I have just the recipe for you. Who wants to pay almost $20 for a little tub of wonderful smelling scrub? I would rather make my own little scrub (that works just the same) and save on the money.

Now, you don’t have to use the scents that I used or the oil I used. You can make your own unique blend of shower scrub. I use this daily on my arms and legs. It not only makes your skin glow, it evens out all those lumps and bumps (for those over18). How great!

You will need: 1 cup sea salt, ½ cup raw sugar, 1 tbsp. baking soda, 5-6 drops of essential oils, 2 shakes of dried rosemary (optional), 4 heaping tbsp. coconut oil (melted in the microwave or over the stove). You can also use olive oil, if you prefer!

First, dump your salt and sugar into a bowl and mix these together. You do not have to use both salt and sugar. You can pick just one or the other, but I like the combination of the mixture.

Add in the baking soda and mix thoroughly. Next drop in the essential oil of your choice (for this I used a geranium oil). This oil is excellent for the skin, and its aromatic influence helps release negative memories. Used traditionally to support the circulatory and nervous systems, a great deal of its strength lies in its ability to revitalize body tissues.

Shake in your rosemary and make a nice little dry blend. It should smell fantastic!bath salt 3

Put the coconut oil in a separate bowl and melt in the microwave. When melted, pour this wet mixture into your dry salts/sugar. And mix together with a large fork or spoon.

The texture is yours to decide. If you think it is a little too dry, add some more oil. If you think it’s too wet, pour in some more salts.

For the jar, I just recycled one of my old containers from Bath and Body Works. And rub-a-dub-dub! You just made your very own bath scrub for a fraction of the price. These are great for gifts too!
