Himalayan Salt Scrub Recipe with Lavender & Eucalyptus Essential Oils

Everyone can use a little pampering, especially when it is simple to do. This Himalayan salt scrub recipe is just the thing. Salt scrubs are nourishing to skin, help to eliminate toxins, and can even fight cellulite.

Himalayan salt is considered the purest salt and the most beautiful salt in the world. It has many helpful benefits due to its unique mineral composition. It works fabulous as an exfoliating scrub and helps to soften skin.

Add in some Lavender & Eucalyptus essential oil and...it is truly a refreshing and uplifting aromatherapy experience.

The act of scrubbing the skin helps to stimulate circulation and improve the overall tone and health of skin. Have you ever performed dry brushing? Himalayan salt scrub can help to exfoliate the skin in a similar fashion.

Himalayan Salt Scrub Ingredients

Salt scrubs include a carrier oil to help the salt glide over the skin and to moisturize the body. This recipe uses fractionated coconut oil and argan oil. I also like vitamin E oil for extra skin benefits.

Lavender is one of the most popular and beneficial essential oils. It is prized for its calming and soothing properties. Frequently used in beauty and personal care products, as well as aromatherapy and spa creations.

Lavender reduces anxious feelings, eases tension, and promotes sleep. It is also helpful at soothing skin irritations.

Eucalyptus essential oil has a wonderfully stimulating aroma that opens airways and eases congestion. It boosts the immune system and reduces bacterial, fungal, and viral activity.

Emotionally, eucalyptus encourages mental clarity and reduces negative thinking. It can also help soothe exhaustion and increase vitality during challenging times.

How to Make a Himalayan Salt Scrub

Step 1: Place Himalayan salt into mixing bowl.

Step 2: If using dried lavender in salt scrub, the pieces may clog the drain, that is why I like to grind the lavender with a coffee grinder. It doesn't look as pretty but still adds a great aroma to the salt scrub. One thing I noticed is that a few tiny pieces may stick to the skin when the scrub is washed off.

Step 7: Transfer into a storage container. I used an 8 oz glass mason jar and all but a small scoop fit. (I used the extra as a quick hand and foot scrub for all my hard work!)

To Use: Grab a scoop of salt scrub and gentle rub over body to exfoliate, then rinse off. Since this product is made with oil, be careful when using it in the shower as it can make the floor slippery. You can use plastic jars if you are concerned about glass in the bath or shower. Best if used within 1-2 months.
