Here’s a quick little recipe that will soften that dry winter skin and invigorate your senses. Packed with nourishing oils and aloe vera, it will leave your skin so silky and smooth that you’ll be tempted to book a tropical vacation just to show it off!
It’s quick. It’s easy. It’s wonderful.
Here’s how to make it…
1 1/2 cups Dead Sea Salt (fine or coarse)
1/4 cup Sweet Almond Oil
1/4 cup Grapeseed Oil
1 tsp Aloe Vera
1 tsp Peppermint Essential Oil
Red Mica Powder (optional for color)
Glass or Plastic Jar for storing
This fragrance is SURE to wake you up! If you’re anything like me and sink into hibernation during the long winter months- this oil will awaken your senses and bring you right out of that winter funk.
Start by mixing all of the wet ingredients together in a bowl. Stir together the sweet almond oil, grapeseed oil and aloe.
Add in the fragrance with the peppermint essential oil. You can adjust this amount if you would like. Make sure the strength suits your preferences. 1 tsp was perfect for me.
Mix the mica powder into the salts until you achieve an even color throughout.
I didn’t over-color the salts because once the wet ingredients are added the mixture will deepen in color.
Pour the wet ingredients over the dry salts and begin to blend using a large spoon.
See how much darker the color has become?! I love it! Keep on mixing until both the dry and wet ingredients are thoroughly blended together.
Carefully scoop the mixture into a lidded jar, being sure to transfer every last ounce of the oils (you want all of the oil for the nourishing and moisturizing aspect of the scrub).
To use: Gently massage over damp skin and rinse with water. Pat dry. Massage the remaining oil on the surface into the skin for the softest, smoothest, silkiest skin ever!
*When using scrubs, especially ones with salt, be mindful of any scrapes or paper cuts you may have!
I keep mine beside my sink to keep my hands soft and nourished!
