SALT SCRUBS help circulation and are a wonderful way to invigorate your skin. The abrasive action of the salt will remove dead skin cells and open pores, allowing them to breathe. Because oils have been added to the salts, this scrub will create a healthy glow and moisturize your skin as well. To use, scoop out a tablespoon or two and begin to massage it onto your skin while in the shower or bath. Work in a circular motion, starting with your extremities and toward your heart. Leave the scrub on your skin for 5 to 20 minutes, and then rinse off with cool water.


  • 3 cups fine sea salt
  • 1/2 cup of olive oil
  • 1/2 cup of sweet almond oil
  • 1/2 tsp. tree tea oil
  • 1/2 tsp. eucalyptus oil
  • 1/2 tbsp. peppermint oil
  • 1 tbsp. rosemary oil

Mix salt and oils, then add the essential oils. Store in a tightly sealed glass container. Will keep up to two weeks in refrigerator.
NOTE: do not use any equipment with copper, aluminum, cast-iron or Teflon finishes. Do not use on cut or irritated skin.
