Hand & Foot Sea Salt Scrub

Hand & Foot Sea Salt Scrub


    • Measure out 16 oz. of sea salt into a mixing bowl. It is best if the bowl is not metallic to ensure there is no type of reaction.
    • Add 15 drops of the main essential oil scent you want to use to the sea salt in the bowl. Starting with 15 drops ensures you do not overscent the salts. If it smells weak, feel free to add up to another 15 drops.
  • Thoroughly mix the sea salt with the essential oil. Add other oil scents, if desired. Thoroughly mix in each scent. Mix and match the smells until you like the way the blend smells.
  • Store the blend in glass jars with tight-fitting lids.

  • Tips & Warnings

    • If you find that you have added too many essential oils, mix in 1/2 cup of sea salt. Continue to add sea salt as needed, mixing after each addition.
    • Be sure to keep track of the amount of drops of which scents you use for future scrub mixes.
    • For use in a bath, add about 1/3 cup to the bath water. If using as a scrub for hands and feet, scoop out 1 tbsp., place in the center of a wash cloth and wet. Thoroughly scrub hands and feet, making sure to thoroughly rinse when finished.
    • If you would like to make a relaxing scrub, use lavender essential oil. For an energizing scrub, use 10 drops of spearmint with five drops of rosemary essential oil. Combining five drops of eucalyptus with 15 drops of lavender essential oil makes a very good muscle relaxing scrub. The possibilities are endless.
