Coconut Oil Himalayan 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, you can create one at a fraction of the cost!  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)

Oil: 
You can use a blend of oils like safflower, macadamia and canola.  I LOVE solid coconut oil. It won’t spill or make a mess.

Scent: 
You can add a few drops of your favorite essential oil but, the coconut oil smells fantastic alone!

INGREDIENTS:

If you don’t have essential oils hand try some citrus peel, flowers or mint extract!  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,

Michelle
