Homemade Almond and Floral Body Scrub

Homemade_Body_Scrub We are continuing the spa theme today with this recipe for a DIY scrub that will help prepare your skin ready for your pretty summer dresses. The base of epsom or sea salt not only exfoliates your skin but has the added benefit of absorbing toxins. One note about my reason for choosing salt over sugar for a scrub; I am working to limit the amount of refined sugar in my diet and since our skin absorbs whatever we put on it, adding sugar seems counter productive, right? Not only that but there is no health benefits from sugar where there are from epsom and sea salts. The almond oil has many healthy benefits for the skin so together they are a dynamic duo. For my floral essential oil I chose geranium which is oh so lovely. I then added a handful of lavender buds and fresh lilac petals for added color and another layer of natural fragrance. I made this scrub as a companion to the homemade body butter from yesterday and later today will share the labels for you to make a complete spa kit that is a perfect gift for your upcoming holidays and celebrations. Below is the printable recipe for this fragrant body scrub and here are my ingredients and jar sources: Epsom Salt | Almond Oil | Geranium Essential Oil | Lavender Buds | Weck Jars | Labels (coming soon).  Enjoy! ~ Lia

  1. Where did you find the glass jar at?!

  2. Hi there, what could I use instead of lavender? x

    • You could use any floral fragrance and really don’t need floral buds. I was thinking to use rose petals, but again it is more for color.

  3. I have a lot of cuts and cracks in my skin so salt scrubs sting horribly. Would i use the same amount of a course sugar I get from my co-op?

    • You could use sugar and a lot of scrubs do. Personally I am trying to cut sugar out of my diet so it seems silly to use it on my skin when I know how much my skin absorbs. But that is my own thing. . . so sugar may be perfect for you. For your cuts and cracks, try rubbing some coconut oil on them.

  4. Awesome! What about the shelf life since no chemical in it?

  5. These are so awesome and elegant Lia! Thank you! This is SO much cheaper than buying products already made.

    • Cheaper and healthier. I was looking at my favorites and was blown away by the chemicals. They are even “natural” brands.

  6. This whole set is absolutely beautiful! FYI: Crate and Barrel also has a decent selection of Weck jars from $2.50 to $5 each.
