How wonderful to connect with the Earth all over your skin with this sea salt scrub that is also an itch scratcher par none. Using just the pure gifts of nature, this ultra-invigorating blend is perfect to use in the morning as a wake-me-up as it enlivens all the senses!
Recommended for all skin types except for those with acne (use with care on sensitive and environmentally damaged skin).
2 cups sea salt (preferably finely ground, but regular granular will do)
¾ cup extra-virgin olive base oil or base oil of choice
40-60 drops peppermint, spearmint, grapefruit, geranium, or rosemary (chemotype verbenon) essential oil
In a medium-sized bowl, combine the sea salt and the base oil. Using a whisk, stir to blend. Add the essential oil drop by drop, blending after each addition.
Spoon into a storage container with a tight-fitting lid.
No refrigeration is required, but for maximum freshness and fragrance, please use within six months.
