Lavender Body Scrub Recipe

13 Aug

This is a quick and easy recipe for a lavender body scrub. This one follows the same recipe as the Peppermint Body Scrub . In this one, you switch out the peppermint castile soap for lavender castile soap.

What You Need:

  • Sea Salt- choose the grain size that works best for your skin. The one you see in this photo is fine grain. I also made one that was medium. The smaller the size, the gentler the scrub will be.
  • Lavender Liquid Castile Soap
  • Oil of your choice
  • Clean jar or container

What to Do:

I mixed the castile soap and the salts together first. Then I added the oil. I used jojoba, but you can use a different type. I didn’t measure. I just poured it in small amounts until it was the texture that I wanted. It only took a few minutes to make.

Give this a try. You can always use different types of castile soap to get a different scent.  This scrub will leave your skin hydrated and soft. It’s a great way to treat yourself without spending a lot of money.

Peppermint Body Scrub Recipe

14 Dec

This is a quick and easy recipe for a peppermint body scrub. Scrubs are great for exfoliating the skin and helping it to be smoother. The best thing about this recipe is that there are only three ingredients. All of these are ingredients that you can use in many other mixes so they won’t go to waste.

What You Need:

  • Sea Salt- choose the grain size that works best for your skin. The one you see in this photo is fine grain. I also made one that was medium. The smaller the size, the gentler the scrub will be.
  • Peppermint Liquid Castile Soap
  • Oil of your choice
  • Clean jar or container

What to Do:

I mixed the castile soap and the salts together first. Then I added the oil. I used jojoba, but you can use a different type. I didn’t measure. I just poured it in small amounts until it was the texture that I wanted. It only took a few minutes to make.

Give this a try. You can always use different types of castile soap to get a different scent. I’ve also made a lavender body scrub using this same method. This scrub will leave your skin hydrated and soft. It’s a great way to treat yourself without spending a lot of money.
