- 2 tbsp. of olive oil (or jojoba, almond, avocado, or other NATURAL oil).
Optional: Add aroma using one of the following suggestions:
- 1 ½ tbsp. rose water.

- A few drops of food colouring if you used regular coarse salt.
How to Make a Hand Exfoliating Scrub at Home
- Grind the salt.
- Toss the salt into a small blender and grind it until you obtain finer grains (10 seconds). Or if you have a mortar and pestle, you can use this to grind your salt.
- Your salt doesn’t have to be completely pulverized. But if you have sensitive skin, it is recommended to obtain finer grains.
- Put all the ingredients in a clean airtight glass jar.
- Toss the salt, glycerine, natural oil (aroma and colour if desired) in a clean airtight glass jar to incorporate them.
- Mix gently all the ingredients until obtaining a homogenous mixture.
- Preserve your new homemade scrub for up to 4 weeks.
