I first made this simple honey salt scrub about three years ago during our first ever 31 Days of Living Well & Spending Zero challenge. I loved it so much that I ended up making a huge bath and giving it away to all my friends and family that year. They have been asking for more ever since!
But don’t let the simplicity fool you–this easy-to-make scrub packs a powerful punch! It is the perfect solution to dry, flaky skin and leaves your skin feeling silky smooth and moisturized all day long. Better yet, it is way cheaper to make than all those expensive store-bought scrubs, and works just as well! You can use your favorite essential oil–I have tried it with bergamot, lavender, and ginger and they are all fabulous! (For more information about essential oils and where to buy them, check out this post.)
Here is what you need:
1/3 cup honey 1/2 cup olive oil 1 cup salt 5-6 drops essential oil
Step 1: Whisk together honey & olive oil.
Step 2: Slowly mix in salt.
Step 3: Add essential oil and mix well.
Step 4: Spoon mixture into wide mouth mason jar or container. Add a pretty tag to give as a gift.
