Keep skin beautifully smooth for less by mixing up some of these cheaper-than-store-bought salt scrub recipes. Your skin and your beauty budget will thank you!

Keep that summer skin beautiful by making some of your own salt scrubs, sometimes called Salt Glows.

By making your own scrubs, you can save money and you will be assured of fresh ingredients. No overpriced rancid oils in plastic jars for you!

In these recipes, I’m going to call for Safflower oil because you can get it at any grocery store and it has no odor that will interfere with the other ingredients. Olive oil can be used but it does have that “olive oil” smell.

If you have never had a scrub, be prepared to have the softest birthday suit ever! I suggest that you shower or take a bath, then apply the scrub to a clean body and try to relax for 10-15 minutes with the scrub on the body. This gives the sea salt time to open the pores and time for the Epsom salt to pull toxins and restore magnesium to the body. The essential oils and herbs also get time to apply their benefits to your skin.

Each recipe is for one scrubbing.
