Peppermint Salt Scrub

I finally got around to making my own salt scrub and not only was it inexpensive to make, it was also super duper easy.  Just three ingredients (epsom salt, essential oils, and a carrier oil.)  I bought a ton of supplies and put a few containers together to give as Christmas gifts.  I followed the Martha Stewart instructions and made a few adaptations.  My version is below.



2 cups Epsom salts or organic cane sugar

1/4-1/2 cup carrier oil (TIP:  unscented is best if you're using essential oils.  Carrier oil is a term for any vegetable based oil used for massage or moisturizing skin.  Keep in mind that if your oil has a color tint to it, your scrub will also have that tint.)

10 drops of essential oil

mixing bowl, spoon, jars to store your finished salt scrub


1. Stir together Epsom salts or sugar and carrier oil in a bowl.  Add the oil a little bit at a time and stop adding when constistancy seems correct (should feel like a paste - not too dry and not too oily)

2. Add essential oil, 1 drop at a time. Add food coloring, and stir until color is even throughout. Spoon into canning jars.

The contents of the jar may separate over time.  Simply stir if this happens.
