Homemade Body Scrub Recipe

Enjoy an exfoliating body scrub with my easy at-home recipe:

You Will Need:
1. 16 oz. package of Epsom Salt
2. Your favorite oil (such as coconut, jojoba, apricot kernel, olive, etc.)
3. Your favorite aromatherapy oil or perfume (such as vanilla, citrus, lavendar, rose, peppermint, etc.)
4. Optional add-ins (such as shredded ginger, lemon zest, grated orange peel, etc.)
5. A jar

Get Started:
1. Empty the package of salt into your jar
2. Add approximately 3/4 cup of oil into the jar
3. Add a tablespoon of perfume oil
4. Mix in any add-ins

For my body scrub below, I used coconut oil with a tangerine perfume and ginger add-in. The coconut oil is often purchased as a solid and will need to be heated for 10 seconds in the microwave to transform it into a liquid. I used ginger from the grocery store and grated it. You can use the scrub yourself or tie a bow and tag around the jar and give it as a gift!
