Give the gift of pampering! Made with only three ingredients, this sea salt scrub will exfoliate your skin, leaving it softer and smelling of lavender.
Wipe away winter with a gentle homemade exfoliant. If you’re anything like me, you spend the winter under thick, warm clothes. When summer comes, your skin can use a little TLC. That’s why, for this mother’s day, my three-year-old daughter and I decided to give a pamper present. Together we made Lavender Sea Salt Scrub.
Made with sea salt, grapeseed oil, and lavender extract, Lavender Sea Salt Scrub is made with healthy, natural ingredients that can make your skin feel better. It’s made with sea salt, grapeseed oil, and lavender essential oil.
Sea salt is a natural exfoliant. It helps to deeply cleanse your pores and balances the natural oils in your skin. Grapeseed oil contains linoleic acid, which helps to improve the overall quality of your skin. Plus, it’s non-comedogenic meaning it won’t clog your pores. This super oil can moisturize your skin, reduce scars and even fight aging. Talk about one awesome ingredient! Finally, lavender essential oil can restore your skin’s complexion, reduce acne, and improve eczema. Plus, it can reduce anxiety, emotional stress, and even help you sleep.
With these three simple ingredients, you are giving a special someone one powerhouse gift! And it’s truly simple to make.
Simply, combine sea salt, grapeseed oil, and lavender essential oil in a medium bowl. Mix to combine and your Lavender Sea Salt Scrub is done. That’s it! Easy peasy exfoliant squeezy.
When you’re looking for a sea salt, I recommend picking one with finer salt crystals. This way, it is gentler on the skin.
If you’re making Lavender Sea Salt Scrub for a gift, there are just a couple more steps. I have a printable PDF to make it a little easier, click here to download.
The PDF includes two sizes of labels. The first has the title label with coordinating ingredient one. The second has a smaller circle label that you can add to the top of the bottle. Both labels are pictured below. Plus, the PDF includes a list of the materials and directions to make this sweet gift.
Between uses, you may find that some of the grapeseed oil separates from Lavender Sea Salt Scrub. If this happens, give the scrub a gentle stir and then it’s ready to use.
