A spiced, sea salt scrub for glowing skin.
Ready to shed that rough, dry skin? Sea salts are essential to your at-home spa kit as they exfoliate dead skin cells and stimulate circulation. Full of natural minerals, sea salts open clogged pores to accept their nutrients leaving you toned, tightened and radiant. The hints of ginger (a natural astringent) and cedarwood (a soothing, skin conditioning agent) give the scrub a spicy, woody aroma that guys will love too — a good one to share (hint, hint)!
Here’s what you need:
- 2 cups fine sea salt
- 2 tablespoons dried chopped orange peel
- 3 drops essential oil of ginger
- 2 drops essential oil of cedarwood
Here’s what you do:
Mix ingredients together. During bath or shower, add a handful of the sea salt mixture to a tad of your regular body cleansing gel and gently rub sea salts over the skin, avoiding the face and any sensitive areas. Store in an air-tight jar for up to 2 months. Makes a great gift!
*If you can’t find dried orange peel (look for it in health food stores in the bulk tea or cereal aisle), use fresh grated orange peel instead. Scrubs made with fresh peel won’t last as long but are just a yummo!
