wooden spoon with coconut oil and a bottle of rose water concentrate


If only every day could be a spa day. This 3 ingredient body scrub will have you in the spa mood in no time. The last time I visited a spa was in May of this year. On a trip to Ecuador with some friends, we visited a spa in Banos. Our treatment included a hot stone massage and it was my first time getting naked for any spa service. It was quite intimate but also really soothing. Just what we needed after 10 days of intense adventure travel.

Every now and then, I like to create my own spa day at home. It includes a good body scrub, like this Himalayan Sea Salt Scrub recipe I’m sharing with you today. And a good salt soak because how many of us actually take baths anymore?

For the DIY Himalayan Sea Salt Body Scrub you will need:

2 TBSP Garden of Life Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil 

Essential oil scent of your choice (I chose NOW Rosewater Concentrate, 1-Ounce)

1/2 c. The Spice Lab Pink Himalayan Salt (Choose a fine grain variety)

Empty Jar (for storing the scrub)

 Mortar and pestle or medium-sized bowl and spoon for mixing

coconut oil and himalayan sea salt

 In your bowl mix together your coconut oil and salt until well blended. The ratio should leave the scrub with a grainy texture that falls apart easily.

Now, bottle your scrub in a glass jar. If you are making this as a gift, choose a fun jar like these jars with metal clamps and include a wooden spoon.
