Easy Sea Salt & Coconut Oil Scrub

Easy Sea Salt and Coconut Oil Scrub

The past couple of weeks I’ve shared ways to combat dry skin naturally during these cold months and a few organic skincare products you can use to help your skin retain moisture. Now this Easy Sea Salt & Coconut Oil Scrub will help you exfoliate and moisturize your skin at the same time, creating your very own spa like treatment at home. I always see expensive scrubs in stores, but it’s actually really easy to make your own, costs less, and lasts longer.

Coconut Oil has a wonderful smell and it’s good for your skin. It soothes dry, itchy, irritated skin and can alleviate many common conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, and acne. Sea salt gently removes dead skin cells and Coconut Oil aids in rehydration of the body. The combination of the two leaves you with smooth and soft, moisturized skin. Use the scrub liberally in the bath or shower and rinse clean.

To make this Easy Sea Salt & Coconut Oil Scrub you need:

Medium to large sized jar

About 1 1/2 cups of Sea Salt

About 1 1/2 cups of Virgin Coconut Oil

First you need to heat your Coconut Oil so that it can become a liquid. Coconut Oil is normally a solid until it reaches 75F. You can warm it in the microwave for about a minute, or on the stove top.

Next fill 3/4 of the jar with the Sea Salt.

    I’m definitely going to try this!! I went to Bath & Body Works today to buy a scrub, but then decided to Google a homemade one when I got home. Lo and behold…♡

      Jasmine, it’s so easy to make a lot of beauty products yourself, and it’s better for your skin!

    I must try this. Just made some raw sugar scrub the other day. The hubs can’t use a salt scrub but I can. Will keep you posted. And your pictures… I need a tutorial or baby free time. Simply beautiful.

    girl YES! I LIVE for body scrubs. That’s so funny I had my little winter version of this but I used olive oil, so I’m loving the coconut oil version of this! How did it smell? I LOVE coconut oil!

    • Ashley

      January 29, 2014 at 12:42 pm

      Kim, of course it smells wonderful! That’s exactly why I chose coconut oil. I did my sugar scrub with olive oil, now I’m thinking I should do one with coconut oil too!
