Sunday DIY: Himalayan Salt Scrub

 

him-salt-four-ways

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)

Method

  1. Mix coconut oil and essential oil together. Mix well.
  2. 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.
  3. 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?
