Homemade Lavender Salt Scrubs

It's almost Mother's Day and I needed an easy gift for my Momma! I decided to set aside a little collection of DIY beauty gifts for her because she loves that stuff and I'm broke. {wink}

Making salt scrubs is so simple and people go crazy over them so they are fantastic gifts. With the encouragements of a couple of my blogging friends, I made my very FIRST video ever to show you how simple it is!! OMG! I was so nervous-- can you tell?!

So now you can watch me make a fool of myself!! It's all for my readers!!! If you keep watching there are two videos after mine. You can meet my friends Kristi from Veggie Converter who uses a stand mixer for her salt scrubs and Kirsten from Cheerfully Imperfect who explains how she uses some of her favorite essential oils.

Yes, I know. I sound like a five year old.

What do you think? Have any tips for me to improve with my video skills?! 

Salt scrubs are such an easy DIY gift for holidays
What You Need
If you have coconut oil in a solid form, melt it over a double boiler.

When it's melted-- then add it to the salt. Stir it up and then add your essential oils. I really like lavender for this, but lemongrass, peppermint, or stress away would work really well! 

And that's it! Easy breezy DIY beauty idea for a gift!

Thanks for checking out my blog. I get serious about a few things in life: animals, chemicals, and food. For the rest I can't promise anything so keep the bar low. For more about me check out my "About Me" page! Happy DIYing!


  1. So what do you do with it afterwards, is it like a sugar scrub to take off dead skin or do you soak in the tub with it?

    1. It's like a sugar scrub except with salt :) It's better for the body where sugar is better for more sensitive areas like the face!

  2. Will the coconut oil solidify again once its made?

  3. It will solidify only if the temp is below 76F
