How to Make Salt Scrubs at Home
Before you start making any type of salt scrubs, it’s important to remember the ratio. From there on, you can pretty much mix any type of essential oil and concoct your own, unique salt scrub. Homemade salt scrubs consist of 80% salt and 20% oil. For most recipes, you will use use 1 cup of salt and 1/4 cup of coconut oil, almond oil, or olive oil. Alternatively, any other type of oil will also work if you don’t have either of the three. In conjunction with the salt and oil, you can also add your favorite essential oils such as lavender, grapefruit, rosehip, and many more! The essential oils are not only there to give your salt scrubs a pleasant scent, but also to relax and revitalize the senses!
So with that 80-20 ration in mind, now we can go ahead and make some great salt scrub combinations!
