Homemade Salt Scrub

A long time ago, I made a Sugar Scrub.  It was nice.  But then I used it all and never made more.  I don't know why.

Oh yes, I remember- it really hurt to rub on your skin.  Sugar is tough stuff.

But with winter coming, I wanted that moisturizing shower stuff again.  This time, I bought some Epsom Salt to use instead of sugar.

Here is what you need:

1 part olive oil
2 parts salt
essential oil if desired (I use grapefruit.  I love it.)


Mix together.  Done.

Taryn's Take:
Much, much much better than the sugar.  Doesn't hurt and it works like a charm.  Be careful- it makes the shower slippery!

I added a couple of drops of food color & put them in jars as thank you gifts for my bridesmaids that put my Bachelorette party together. I used the Sex on the Beach scent to go with the theme. Our tub in our new house is stained & scratched & even after I clean it with bleach, I refuse to take a bath. I miss it though, those scrubs are yummy!!

Are you related to Laura Ingalls Wilder? You are refreshing in your approach to everything...and you're young to boot.

Have I mentioned that when my hair was waist-length, I would use olive oil to condition it about once a month? Look at Sophia Lauren....olive oil does one good, inside and out!

Wonder if this works with dry feet. I always get real dry feet in the winter. I hate it and can't seem to find anything that helps.
