  • Air tight container
  • Carrier Oils (olive, jojoba, etc.)
  • Essential oils (EO)
  • Body grade fragrance (optional)
  • Body grade colorant (optional)
  • Tool to mix ingredients

Tips:

  1. If you are using fragrance (other than EO) or colorant be sure that they are cosmetic/body grade products. Products that are not may contain chemicals and additives that are harmful
  2. Choose oils that will benefit your skin such as coconut & vitamin E. Petroleum based oils (baby oil or mineral oil) are not recommended
  3. Be sure that the salt is fine grained or you may risk unwanted abrasion to your skin
  4. After soaking in a warm bath, use a dollop of the scrub to gently exfoliate each foot
  5. After soaking in a warm bath and before shaving, gently remove dead skin by exfoliating legs with scrub
  6. Use scrub as part of a manicure and gently remove dead skin from hands by exfoliating
  7. After use, rinse with warm water and blot dry with a towel
