It's Earth Week and my friend Jami is lean, mean and so very green. Ok, she's not mean but anyway...She shared this recipe for a homemade salt scrub that looks super awesome and easy to make. If you're not following her Full Metal Body Fitness page on Facebook, you should be.
Here’s an easy salt scrub recipe you can do at home in a few minutes and for very little money. Treating yourself to a salt scrub couldn’t be easier!
The Salt Scrub Recipe
The amounts of salt and oil in this recipe are rough estimates. You might need a bit more or a bit less. Experiment with the amount of oil you add to the salt. Most salt scrub recipes use fine sea salt, although I have also used coarse sea salt occasionally.
approximately a cup of (fine) sea salt
approximately half a cup of olive, sweet almond, jojoba or coconut oil (if you use coconut oil, it has to be in liquid form)
10-15 drops of essential oils – choose from the following or add your own favorite oils.
Choose 2-3 essential oils for your scrub:
detoxifying: Juniper, Grapefruit, Rosemary, Geranium, Lemon (all these are also great for an anti-cellulite salt scrub)
energizing: Rosemary, Grapefruit, Basil, Black Pepper, Ginger, Thyme, Peppermint, Eucalyptus
to boost circulation: Rosemary, Ginger, Black Pepper
great for all skin types: Lavender, Geranium
