1 C fine sea salt
½ C Epsom salt
½ C Dried chamomile flowers
⅓ C Dried lavender flowers
3 Tbsps coconut oil (if it’s not already liquified at room temperature, melt it)
½ C sweet almond oil (you may substitute apricot kernel or sunflower oil)
40 Drops Bergamot essential oil*
20 Drops Lavender essential oil*
Makes approximately 16 oz
Separately mix all of the dry ingredients and all of the oils (including essential oil). Combine the dry and wet ingredients, mixing well. Scoop into jars.
Use in the shower once a week, replacing the use of your soap. Scoop into your hand and scrub lovingly onto legs, butt, and arms in a circular motion. Feel free to scrub somewhat vigorously. Start by your hands and feet, moving your way toward the heart as you scrub for the maximum circulatory benefit. I like to let it soak in for a few minutes before rinsing.
*I keep the essential oil scenting minimal in this recipe to give more of a chance for the herbal ingredients to shine. If you are looking for a more strongly scented salt glow, feel free to double the essential oils.
