I’m back, as promised, with these yummy and simple DIY salt scrub recipes.
Last week I shared 3 sugar scrub recipes with you all. Insanely easy recipes I might add.
If you missed them, you can read about them here… 3 Simple DIY Sugar Scrub Recipes.
Today I’m sharing 2 salt scrubs, both made with Pink Himalayan Salt.
And both also insanely easy to make!
Just like I like it and I know you do too. :)
The first one is Ginger & Grapefruit and below are some of the ingredients.
(I’m including affiliate links to the things you’ll need for your convenience. See full disclosure here.)
So, do you remember how easy it was to just mix and be done for the sugar scrubs?
Well, it’s basically the same exact thing with these. Yay!
I poured the salt into the bowl and added approximately 1 tsp of freshly grated Ginger for this batch.
Then I also ground up some Frankincense Resin to put into this particular scrub.
Both have properties that benefit the skin.
By the way, that resin smells amazing!
I mixed the oils in (I used equal parts of Avocado, Jojoba and Coconut for both scrubs).
Next I added in the essential oils, I used Grapefruit and Lemon, plus the Glycerin and Vitamin E.
Stirred well and scooped it into my jar.
I found this jar with the spoon on the side at a craft supply store.
I thought it was pretty cool…and perfect for the scrub.
I also created and printed a label for the front.
Mmm, yum. It smells so invigorating with all of those lingering scents of Frankicense, Ginger, Grapefruit and Lemon.
The other one I made was Citrus & Poppyseeds.
I did everything the same except I added about a tablespoon of Poppyseeds to this one.
Lemon, Orange or Grapefruit zest might be a nice addition too.
I created and printed a pretty label for this one too but used clear printer paper instead.
I really love this big jar with the screw top lid.
Doesn’t it look almost edible? Yes, it does but probably wouldn’t taste so good!
But it feels luscious on the skin.
Here’s the printable recipe for you.
- 1 cup of Salt (your choice)
- ¼ to ⅔ cup of Oil (again, your choice, for this scrub I used equal parts of jojoba, avocado and coconut)
- 1 T Glycerin
- ½ t Vitamin E
- Approx 20 drops of essential oils (or more depending on oil and strength desired)
- See notes for extra info
- Add ingredients to the bowl and mix well.
- Scoop into your jars and enjoy!
For the Citrus & Poppyseed - add 1 T poppyseeds and zest of citrus fruit, if desired.
I hope you might give these a try. They are really easy to make and you can use just about any (skin safe) essential oil and base oils.
The possibilities are endless and they are so great for gift giving.
Visit your local craft store for jar ideas and mix one, or several, up!
