DIY Himalayan Salt Scrub

one of my biggest resolutions this new years was to buy/make/provide/shop for items that are simple. ones made of little product. ones that I knew exactly what was in them. ones that didn’t have anything on the label that I couldn’t pronounce or know what it was. and ones that were affordable. we spend so much money on crap. yes crap. and i’d like to stop that.

so far i’ve made a pretty good dent in replacing items in our pantry with better options, stocking our laundry room with homemade soaps and filling our bathroom cabinets with a little more health conscious and homemade options. one of those homemade options being this himalayan pink salt scrub.. and let me tell you. it is soooo good. i like to use it for my face + lips.

all you need to make this amazing little scrub is two ingredients.

– raw himalayan pink salt (you will want to grind this salt fine or you can buy the fine salt) + coconut oil (organic if possible)

both of these items can usually be found in your grocery store’s natural foods aisle.

mix equal parts salt with coconut oil, blend well and store in a small glass jar. 

a little goes a long way with this scrub and a small container will last you many months. if you want to jazz up your scrub feel free to add therapeutic grade essential oils of your choice. when using this scrub lightly massage it onto your skin in circular motion. if you have sensitive skin take caution when using and be sure to grind your salt very finely.

himalayan salt offers the body + soul many wonderful benefits + i hope you enjoy this scrub as much as i do.
