Sweet and Salty Body Scrub
Coarse sugar and mineral-rich sea salt form a dynamic exfoliant that removes dead skin cells and promotes circulation, while olive oil supplies skin-nourishing fatty acids. Add an essential oil of your choice for fragrance, if desired.
½ cup sea salt
½ cup sugar
¼ cup olive oil
Combine sea salt and sugar in a container with a sealed lid and shake thoroughly to ensure ingredients are well mixed. Slowly add olive oil, mixing as you pour. If you’re using essential oils, add a few drops. For the most intense exfoliating, apply to dry skin in a circular motion and wash thoroughly.
