Sundays are for quick and easy DIY projects, lounging around, reading , eating and drinking. That is all. Depending on which side of the bed I wake up from, my Sunday can be super relaxed (I don’t move from my bed and watch series) or I go into domestic goddess mode. I cook things from scratch while I indulge in an easy DIY project.
Today was one of those days. I was spurred on when I noticed a lot of himalayan sea salt in my house. It reminded me of a spa day I had once received from a beauty parlour that had included a brown sugar and sea salt face scrub. Being lazy to leave the house and also remembering the expense of that scrub, I decided I could make my own face scrub.
By accident I poured more coconut oil in the salt than I needed to, so I needed to put in more salt to soak up the oil. I ended up with a larger portion of my sea salt scrub base than I intended and I immediately thought of other uses for the excess scrub.
Voila! I had enough for my face, lips, hands and feet. Himalayan Sea Salt Scrub – four ways.
So how do you go about making your own? Quite simple and no fuss.
1 cup Himalayan Salt
1/4 cup coconut oil (you can also use almond or olive oil and add more oil as you like)
2 – 3 drops essential oil of choice (I always use tea tree oil but there are so many options depending on your preference and use)
- Mix coconut oil and essential oil together. Mix well.
- Add to Himalayan salt until it has absorbed all the oil. Again, add more salt if you like your body scrub with a more granular feel.
- Store scrub in empty body lotion jars or face cream jars.
There you have it…. a simple and quick DIY spa product that you can make at home in less than 10minutes. What are some of your favourite DIY recipes?
