DIY - Salt Body Scrub

Essential Oils Collective Kate Dixon Doterra

The sprint to Christmas is well and truly underway. I feel completely unprepared (a 9 week old will do that!) but have Maddie on school holidays and am hoping that between the two of us, we can get some Christmas gifts made.

This salt scrub works a treat on dry skin, perfect for any time of year.

Sea Salt Body Scrub


  • 3 tablespoons of coconut oil

  • 6 tablespoons of sweet almond oil

  • ½ cup sea salt

  • 10 drops of Peppermint Essential Oil

  • 5 drops of Eucalyptus Essential Oil

  • 3 drops of Lemon Essential Oil

  • Glass jar/s

To Make

  • Melt the coconut oil in a double boiler to soften, take of the heat and stir in the sweet almond oil.

  • Let the mixture cool down.

  • Once the mixture has cooled (you still want it soft but not hot as it will dissolve the salt) add the sea salt and essential oils.

  • Stir well.

  • Transfer to a glass jar and store in a cool place.

Shelf life – 4 to 6 months
