Soothing Coconut Oil Epsom Salt Scrub

 Essential Oil Salt Scrub | @VeggieConverter

Coconut oil salt scrub: A great gift to make for friends, family, neighbors and teachers is this DIY salt scrub. It’s incredibly simple. Epsom salts plus coconut oil and a little essential oil. Mix ‘em up. Done.

Make this for any of the ladies in your life. It’s great for dry heels, softening your legs before shaving and just about any relaxation home spa gift basket you’d want to give.

And one of the great benefits of salt scrub versus sugar scrub is that your skin can soak in the magnesium from the epsom salts. Low magnesium is one of the triggers for migraines and other health issues! So soak it in, baby!

Coconut Oil Epsom Salt Scrub

pint jar (I like to use the squattier gift jars, but a regular wide-mouth is fine, too)


1 1/3 cups epsom salts (I use these epsom salts)
2/3 cup coconut oil, melted if mixing by hand (or use your favorite liquid carrier oil like olive or almond oil for a quick, no fuss version)
about 20 drops essential oil of choice (I love lavender or Stress Away for this scrub)


Mix all ingredients in your jar (I don’t even measure, I just eyeball it in my jar and mix away!). You can also mix it in your stand mixer (if you use this method, you don’t need to melt your oil!). Add the essential oil until it smells wonderful to you!

Place a pretty piece of cloth on top of your canning lid, then screw the canning ring on over it for a pretty decorated piece.

I usually print out instructions for how to use it (and how to make your own refills!) and label the jar. My daughter likes to add a little butterfly drawing on the lid, too. So cute.
