Homemade Salt Scrub

Being in the kitchen as much as I am, my hands can get a little dry.  A decadent salt glow is the perfect remedy.  You can order one of course but, chances are you have what you need right in your kitchen!  Much like any recipe, don’t be afraid of substitutions.

Salts: you can go crazy with salt from sea salt to pink Himalayan to kosher.  There are hundreds of varieties. The size of the salt grain will hit a different place on your palm so I like a variety or a blend of salts.  I add them in equal measure.  My favorite trio is medium pink Himalayan, Kosher and del mar (smaller than table salt)


  • 1 cup of salt blend
  • 1/2 a cup of oil (Canola or coconut)
  • A few drops of essential oils

If you don’t have essential oils hand try some citrus peel, flowers or mint!  Cover in an airtight container and it will store for weeks.

To use, place a teaspoon sized amount in your palm and gently work around cuticles, fingers and hands.  Let the product do the work.  Pat dry.  Use at least once a week to keep hands soft and smooth!

Get your glow on,
