A few years ago I went on my first Spa retreat and it was amazing. I discovered salt scrubs and boy am I glad.
I used a special salt scrub to help remove all the dead skin from my body before spending time in a jacuzzi, having a facial and a massage.
It was part of a blogging experience and one I will never forget.
Today on The Inspiration Edit we have a special recipe to make your very own Himalayan Salt scrub using essential oils.
I do hope you enjoy this and find it super useful. Relax and enjoy.

Let’s Make It
In a large bowl, add salt.
Place the coconut oil in the microwave until melted. Then add the coconut oil. To the bowl. Mix together until a thick paste is formed.
Next add in your *Sweet Almond Oil.
Add in your essential oils. I added two to compliment one another. Next add your colouring. Stir until mixture is well blended and fluffy. Store in an air-tight container until ready to use.
When using essential oils on your skin, it is a good idea to use a carrier oil that is recommended to pair with them. I used the Sweet Almond Oil, but you can use whatever is available in the essential oil section of the store you shop with.
