Lavender essential oil is one of the favorite scents in the universe, and sea salt is naturally exfoliating. Combine the two with unscented body oil to make your own aromatherapy!
Step 1: Gather Ingredients
To make your own, first equip yourself with some decent containers. Canning jars, old jelly jars, even plastic containers with lids will do. I chose these 12 oz. glass jars with plain lids from The Container Store. Next, gather the following ingredients to make 36 oz. of lavender sea salt scrub: 18 oz. coarse sea salt, 18 oz. fine sea salt*, 4 fluid oz. grapeseed oil*, ½ fluid oz. lavender essential oil, dried lavender buds (optional) *You can skip the fine sea salt and go with just the coarse sea salt, but the mixture of the two is really nice. Also, look for other natural unscented body oils like almond, avocado, or even vegetable glycerin. I found all of my ingredients (except the lavender buds which came from my garden) at Whole Foods.
