Has winters wrath taken a toll on your skin? If so, I recommend whipping up a batch of this natural, magical body scrub!! Forget about spending a whole lot of money when you can make this at home for a fraction of the cost.
You Will Need
– A jar with an airtight lid
– Epsom Salt
– Pure Virgin Coconut Oil
– Essential Oil ( for fragrance)
Depending on the size of your jar add a cup or two of Epsom Salt, if needed add a few drops of your essential oil. Then slowly add in Coconut Oil and stir until the salt absorbs a bit of the oil. Be careful not to overdue it as you want the keep the grittiness of the salt to exfoliate and slough off dry and flakey skin. Coconut Oil has many beneficial properties, like Vitamin E to nourish your skin, as well as antibacterial properties.
* I opted to by Lavender Epsom salt (available at Bed Bath and Beyond) so I was able to skip the step of adding my own essential oil.
* Use before shaving as salt can irritate freshly shaven skin
Tada!! You now have a luxurious body scrub that will keep your skin feeling hydrated and new!
