Healing Himalayan Salt Scrub with Grapefruit and Sandalwood

Exfoliants are a great way to help care for your skin.  It’s revitalizing and refreshing and can help prevent aging when done properly.  I love this Himalayan salt scrub because it  is full of natural minerals like, magnesium, potassium and calcium that can nourish and heal the skin.  This is a great recipe for people who struggle with skin conditions like eczema or excessively dry skin as it can replenish nutrients that may be missing as well as infuse a powerful dose of moisturizing goodness, plus it’s super easy!

Here’s what you need:
  • Essential oils of your choice.  I used sandalwood and grapefruit.
  • Himalayan sea salt
  • Coconut oil
  • Empty container

Healing Himalayan Salt Scrub

Mix 1 part coconut oil with 3 parts salt.  I used the oil in it’s solid form, you can choose to heat it and melt it, but just to keep it simple I just mixed it in solid and it did fine.  I dripped in about 5 drops of each oil in to my mixing bowl.

You want the consistency of wet sand.

Spoon into your empty container.  Note: Some essential oils can eat away at plastic, use glass when possible.

Use and enjoy!  Simple, isn’t it?

Like I said this is awesome for skin conditions like eczema and other itch causing ailments because it helps restore moisture and minerals back into the skin. Often salt is a bit courser, so be super gentle on your face or not at all, but your elbow and knees will love it!

Bonus: Here are 2 other recipes that are easy to mix up and are just as healing and helpful.

Rosemary and Lime Scrub

  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • rosemary essential oil
  • lime essential oil

Wild Orange Sugar Scrub

  • 1/2 brown sugar
  • 1/4 coconut oil
  • Wild Orange essential oil
  • Orange zest from the rind of a orange
