There is nothing worse than dry skin this time of year, I love soaking in a hot bath with essential oil bath salts. I also love using a homemade salt scrub along with a body butter a few times a week to help soften up my hands. This Citrus Mint Scrub is quick and easy to make and I love the benefit of the essential oils.
For this Citrus Mint Salt Scrub you will need:
- 1 cup coconut oil
- 2 TBSP fractionated coconut oil (or olive oil)
- 1 cup epsom salt
- 5 drops peppermint essential oil
- 10 drops citrus bliss essential oil
Melt the coconut oil for 20 seconds or until it is partially melted. Add in the fractionated coconut oil or olive oil at this time. Stir well together and then add the epsom salts. Once it is mixed well, add in the drops of essential oils and once again stir well.
Put the mixture in the fridge and stir after 15 minutes. Put back in the fridge and then stir again after another 15 minutes. After that you can place the mixture in a glass container with a sealed lid.
It makes a beautiful homemade gift.
The essential oils in this scrub are a perfect combination. The Citrus Bliss essential oil helps reduce stress and anxiety while the peppermint is re-energizing. Less stress and more energy sound like a wonderful combination to me.
