GRAPEFRUIT MINERAL SALT SCRUB RECIPE - DIY October 17 2014, 1 Comment
I love this homemade body scrub and even make it up for friends when asked!
It's so relaxing due to the magnesium sulfate AKA Epsom Salts which helps with detoxification, muscle soreness and insomnia. Grapefruit and lavender essential oils are common ones most people have and have so many wonderful uses; the lavender is great for relaxation, stress relief, antiseptic to the skin and hydrating while the grapefruit is gently uplifting while being great for fluid retention and cellulite!!
Jojoba oil is a luxurious choice as the base oil because it's oh so wonderful on your skin plus it is not comedogenic (ie: wont clog your pores) and it also suitable for oily skin types.
HERE'S HOW TO MAKE IT
1/2 cup Epsom salts
1/3 cup jojoba oil (or other oil you have)
5 drops of essential oil (3 grapefruit, 2 lavender)
In a non-reactive bowl stir all ingredients together and spoon into a glass jar (i recycle my coconut oil jars)
Store away from heat and preferably away from light, in the bathroom cupboard is perfect!
It will keep for months :)
Happy scrubbing ~ bet your pins look stunning for summer
