DIY Salt Glow Recipe & Directions

Yesterday I had a fantastic salt glow, a salt scrub which exfoliates your body to make your skin feel baby smooth and glow!  I wanted to share the tips & recipe I was given to make this happen more often.  Did you know exfoliating with salt is better for your skin that sugar?  Salt helps to pull toxins out of your skin and will not dissolve in the oil.  Sugar is still good, salt is just bit better.

You will need:

  • Fine Sea Salt or Epson Salt
  • 1/2 cup of massage oil such as almond or grapeseed – no cooking oil
  • 10-15 drops of essential oils such as lavendar or lemongrass
  • 1/4 cup of honey
  • Mixing bowl
  • A jar with a lid
Mix the oils & salt together until the oil has completely soaked the salt in your mixing bowl.  Next mix in the honey.  Transfer the goods to your jar & take a bath or shower.  
If you have a bathtub, allow the excess salt to fall into the tub which will now create a soothing soak.  Using the scrub in the shower prior to shaving is a great way to avoid ingrown hairs.  Make sure to use a soothing shave cream such as Ambrosia from Lush.com.    
Use your scrub 1-2 times per week.  This recipe will give you about 3 scrubs.  Feel free to add any oils you fancy.  Creating your own perfect salt glow is half the fun!
