Recipe for Salt or Sugar Scrub

  • 1/2 C fractionated coconut oil.
  • 1 cup sea salt or sugar. Experiment with different textures to see what feels best for your skin.
  • 5-15 drops the new well essential oil of your choice. You can experiment and create your own blend.
  1. Put the salt or sugar in a small bowl.
  2. Add the oil, mixing well with a spoon or wooden stick. Texture should be moist enough to hold together, but not overly oily. You can adjust the amount of oil to achieve that texture.
