DIY | Rose Salt Scrub

I don't know about you guys, but a good body scrub is my best friend. I started using the one by Fresh when I was pregnant and I was hooked. Since then, I've tried a few others, but none really compare. Since the Fresh scrub is so pricey and because I'm a notorious over user when it comes to products, I tried to find one at a better price point but have yet to love one like I do theirs. 

Here is what I don't love about some scrubs: They don't smell good enough. Or, they have way too much oil, not enough scrub (if you know what I mean). OR... they just have way too many crappy ingredients - no thanks!

So when I say that I just made an amazing homemade body scrub, I come from a very critical background. 

And honestly, this is one heck of a body scrub that was so easy to make. You can head to a local natural food store for these ingredients or if you live in Portland, I bought these at Fettle (formerly The Herb Shoppe).

1 jar
1 cup hawaiian course sea salt 
1/4 cup melted organic coconut oil
1 tbs apricot oil
2 tbs finely chopped dried rose pedals
6 drops of rose essential oil

*optional: add a few drops of lemon (energizing) or bergamot (uplifting) essential oil in the blend

Mix ingredients with a fork or spoon and store in an airtight container for up to two months.

  1. A friend offered to buy some scrubs for me as part of his donation to my medical trip, and he wanted to get them from here. Really pleased with the fit of black scrub pants. Also, way more pockets then I expected, so yay!
