If you've spent time at a spa you know salt scrubs are all the rage! The primary purpose of a salt scrub is to exfoliate the skin, which removes the outermost layer of dead skin cells, softening your skin in the process and giving your skin a natural healthy glow.
1 1/2 cups
1/3 cup olive oil or almond oil
3 drops of essential oil of your choice
First, be sure you are using Essential oils, rather than Fragrance oils which are loaded with fillers and chemicals and can irritate the skin! Some of our favorite essential oils are Lavender, Rose, Neroli, Orange, Birch (for anti-cellulite!), Wild Rose, and Peppermint. Your choice of Essential oil may depend on your mood or any health issues you've been experiencing, such as poor sleep (in which case, you'd use Lavender).
Exfoliate your soles and heels with this mixture after a bath or foot soak. Or apply it to the legs, arms or have someone apply it to your back!
Combine all in a small bowl, blending well.
How to Use a Body Scrub:
- Sit on the edge of a tub and moisten the area
- Place a tablespoon or so of the body scrub in the palm and gently work each area for approximately 1-3 minutes. If you work too quickly you won't properly exfoliate.
- Be sure not to scour too hard or too long.
- Gently rinse the area with warm water, but don't use soap or shower gel to remove it.
- If you want baby-smooth skin, exfoliate once weekly.
- Body scrubs should never be used on the face.
Treating yourself to a lovely Home Spa treatment is a fantastic way to save money while still taking some much needed time out for yourself.
