DIY Essential Oils Sea Salt Hand Scrub

Need a creative last minute gift idea? You will LOVE this sea salt hand scrub. It's quick and easy to throw together plus it's cheap and makes a large batch (right up my alley!).

All you'll need is a jar of coconut oil, a large container of fine sea salt and your favorite scented oil (we used lemon grass for one batch and a light cucumber for the other):

You will use roughly 1 cup of sea salt to 1/2 a cup of coconut oil.

Mix in a large bowl. This is the fun part where everyone wants to get involved!

Check the consistency of your scrub when you have things evenly mixed. We ended up needing to add a bit more salt so that ours wasn't super oily.

Once the consistency is how you like it, add 5-10 drops of scented oils. We divided the batch into two and did half lemongrass, half cucumber. Both smell amazing!

Divide the mixture into small jars and package with a cute spoon.

To use the scrub just take a small amount into damp hands and gently "wash" hands. Then rinse with warm water. Your hands will feel baby smooth and smell amazing!

Have you made your own hand scrub or lotion? Let us know what you think!
