I wish you could smell this Pink Grapefruit Salt Scrub through your screen because it smells heavennnnnnnly! Seriously, friends, I’m in LOVE.

Before I share this super simple and inexpensive recipe, let’s highlight a few health benefits... shall we?! 

Massaging your body with a salt scrub helps remove dirt and dead skin, stimulate circulation and encourage new skin cells' regeneration. This process of removing dead surface layer skin cells (known as exfoliating) leaves the skin soft, smooth, and glowing. 

The essential oils selected for this recipe also help support the circulatory system, lymphatic and immune system, and appearance of healthy skin. Blended, they create the most uplifting and energizing aroma. You have to experience it for yourself!

Tip: When making your own salt scrub, it’s best to use fine sea salt and avoid anything too coarse as you don’t want to scratch or damage your delicate skin.

PINK GRAPEFRUIT SALT SCRUB

INGREDIENTS 

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. In a small glass or stainless steel mixing bowl, combine the sea salt and coconut oil. 
  2. Add the essential oils. Mix well to combine. Add more coconut oil, if needed, to achieve desired consistency. 
  3. Transfer the scrub to an 8 oz glass or PET plastic BPA-free container with an air-tight lid. Label and store in a cool, dark place.
HOW TO USE

Wet the skin. Gently massage salt scrub all over your body in circular motions. Once you’ve massaged your whole body (avoiding the face & neck), rinse your body with warm water.


NOTES

  • Avoid using salt scrubs on the face as the skin is too delicate and prone to scratching. 
  • Be sure to moisturize your body with a natural body oil or lotion to feed and replenish the newly exfoliated skin. 
  • Use 2-3 times per week for best results. If you have sensitive skin, reduce to 1-2 times per week.

DIY Rose Geranium Hydrating Mist

This simple 2-ingredient Rose Geranium Hydrating Facial Mist gives me all the dreamy feels. Who knew DIY skincare could be this simple? 

Let's chat ingredients real quick because they pack a pretty punch! 

Rose hydrosol is quickly becoming one of my favorite ingredients to work with. It helps to balance and restore the skin’s pH levels, making it ideal for applying after cleansing. It also helps to balance sebum production (our skin’s natural oil production), making it useful for both dry and oily skin.

Geranium hydrosol is both hydrating and astringent, helping to maintain the balance of sebum production.

Together, these beauties deliver a boost of hydration and bring balance to irritated skin. Since ditching conventional, alcohol-based toners and switching to hydrosols - I’ve noticed my skin is less red and more even-toned.

The aroma of this mist is incredibly uplifting yet relaxing. Try it for yourself and let me know what you think!
