DIY Salt Scrubs: Give the Gift of Healthy, Glowing Skin By Team Ahava

Four Fantastic Recipes To Get You Started

The possibilities are endless when it comes to creating your own salt scrubs. The most important thing is to use natural, quality ingredients, including a very high-quality salt to ensure purity and achieve the best results. While regular salt is known to dry out the skin, Dead Sea salt contains a higher percentage of natural minerals, including magnesium, calcium, and potassium, which actively retain and nourish skin’s natural moisture.

Blood Orange and Vanilla Scrub

1 cup Dead Sea salt

1/2 cup olive oil

1 1/2 tablespoons dried orange zest

1/2 teaspoon blood orange essential oil

1 vanilla bean

In a medium-sized bowl, combine the Dead Sea salt, olive oil, orange zest and essential oil. With a sharp paring knife, split the vanilla bean down the center and scrape the contents into the bowl. Next, finely chop the bean pod and add it to the mix. Combine well then transfer to your chosen container.

Skin Detox Soothing Skin Scrub

1 cup Dead Sea salt

1/2 cup olive oil or liquid coconut oil

Snickerdoodle Scrub

1 cup Dead Sea salt

2/3 cup refined coconut oil

1 cup brown sugar

1 tablespoon ground cinnamon (adjust to preference)

Summertime Breeze Body Oil By Little Green Dot


Source: https://littlegreendot.com/summertime-breeze-body-oil-recipe/

Ingredients:

50 ml glass bottle

50 ml cold pressed base oil e.g. sweet almond or grapeseed oil

10 drops geranium essential oil (uplifting and relaxing, a wonderful balancing oil, so ideal if you travel often)

5 drops bergamot (a green citrus scent that is refreshing and cheerful. It’s what makes your Earl Grey Tea smell divine!)

1/2-1 teaspoon dried rose petals (start low, and you can add as you go if you want more)

1 teaspoon dried lemongrass (same applies as per the rose petals)

Directions:

🌈🌈 Put your dried rose and lemongrass into the glass bottle.

🌈🌈 Add the essential oils.

🌈🌈 Add the base oil.

Recipe Notes:

Screw on your cap, roll the bottle gently between your palms, and voila, Summertime in a bottle! And the beauty of this oil is, like a good wine, it gets better with age. The dried herbs you have added gradually release their aroma into your oil as time passes, fragrance gradually transforms over time. Your body oil won’t smell the same next week as it does today. How fun is that!

HOMEMADE WHIPPED BODY BUTTER RECIPE BY LITTLE GREEN DOT

Ingredients:
3/4 cup cocoa butter

1/4 cup coconut oil

Directions:

🍎🍎 In a bain-marie, melt down your hard butters and oils until fully liquid

🍎🍎 Set in the freezer to harden, about 20 minutes.

🍎🍎 Once the mixture is solid again, but not too hard, whip it up using an electric whisk, a food processor with a whisk attachment, or your KitchenAid (lucky you!)

🍎🍎 If you need to, you can use a hand held whisk, and a lot of elbow grease! 🙂

🍎🍎 Whip about 5 minutes, or until you have created fluffy white clouds. Spoon it into a clean jar or container. It will keep for 3 months.

Slather it on!

Recipe Notes:

Cold climates, adjust recipe to 60% cocoa butter, 40% oil so that it’s not as hard.
