Scrubs are an effective method of removing dead skin cells from any part of your body to reveal fresh, glowing skin, If you are applying this sweet-smelling scrub to your face, make sure you use just your fingertips in a gentle circular pattern rather than an up-and-down scrubbing motion with your palms. You want to buff your skin, not scrape it raw, Epson salt is not actually salt but a healthful natural compound of magnesium and sulfate that is absorbed through the skin to help detoxify and decrease inflammation.
1 cup coconut oil
6 drops vanilla essential oil
1/2 cup Epsom salt
- Mix the coconut oil and Epsom salt together in a medium bowl until well combined.
- Add the vanilla essential oil and stir until the mixture is evenly blended.
- Store the salt scrub in a sealed glass container at room temperature for up to 1 month.
TIP: Scrubs are best applied in the shower to avoid a mess if you want to use them all over your body. Take care if you are exfoliating your feet, especially the bottoms because the coconut oil can be slippery on the surface of the bathtub or shower stall.
