I’ve been experimenting at home with salt scrubs and fell in love with the calming, soothing scent of this homemade lavender body scrub and I just had to share it with you.
Someone brought a lemon sugar scrub to work and let the employees use it and it was the bomb dot com! After a one-time use, my hands were so soft! However, I had a dilemma…since I am now off of all white sugar and your body absorbs what you put on it, I decided it was better for me to experiment with a salt-based body scrub than sugar-based.
This homemade body scrub did NOT disappoint. My arms, legs, feet, and hands were so soft and smooth. Even Mr. Chef felt the difference.
For a special treat for your hands, feet, arms, and legs, make this homemade lavender body scrub. Feel the soothing effects of this beautiful spa treatment.
The texture of salt exfoliates your dead skin from your body eliminating several toxins that surface to the skin. Secondly, the coconut oil is an excellent massage oil and moisturizer for the skin. And lastly, lavender essential oil is fragrant, calming, and soothing.
For a true spa experience, light some candles, fill a bath and rub this scrub all over your legs, arms, hands, and feet taking in a deep breath as you exfoliate to experience the soothing, calming effects of lavender. It’s a beautiful treat.
This lavender body scrub is sooooo simple to make: Throw all ingredients in a bowl, mix together until well blended, spoon in a jar, and wa-la. You’re done. Easy peasy.
For some girlie time, have a girls spa night and treat your hands and feet to this beautiful body scrub, dab them dry, and paint each others nails! You’ll look and feel smashing!
Homemade lavender body scrub also makes a GREAT gift for Christmas, Mother’s Day, or even a birthday! Tie the jar with a beautiful bow, maybe a few sprigs of lavender, and place it in a gift bag. The beneficiary will LOVE it.
