Full Answer

  1. Pour the salt into a bowl

    Take a 1/2 cup of sea salt and pour it into a glass bowl. Use all-natural sea salt for the best results.

  2. Add 1/2 cup of oil

    Essential oils are great for moisturizing the skin. Add 1/2 cup of your favorite oil to the bowl of sea salt. Try using olive, almond, jojoba or coconut oil. Stir the scrub until the sea salt is coated in the oil.

  3. Try adding dried lavender or lavender essential oil

    For the true spa experience, add a dash of dried lavender or lavender oil to the scrub. This gives it a lovely, but not overpowering scent.

  4. Add citrus zest

    Throw in an infusion of citrus. Try using lime, orange, grapefruit or lemon zest. Stir the mixture until it appears smooth.

  5. Use the scrub

    Rub the mixture on your skin while in the shower. Avoid your eyes and any open wounds. Sea salt makes for a fairly coarse scrub, so don't use it on very sensitive skin. Wash off the scrub to reveal younger looking, healthy skin.
