Healing Himalayan Pink Salt Scrub
This Himalayan pink salt scrub is a powerful detoxifier packed with healing minerals for your whole body. With rose petals and essential oils added, this scrub becomes a home spa treatment that also heals, soothes, and revitalizes the skin.
There are many benefits to using Himalayan pink salt as a culinary ingredient, as it is full of 80+ minerals and elements such as magnesium, calcium, and potassium. The pink color is a result of these trace elements in the salt, including energy-rich iron. These minerals can often be more accessible to the body through dermal absorption, making this salt scrub a nourishing and therapeutic experience for the body.
Rose geranium, pink grapefruit, and ylang-ylang essential oils have been added for an aroma that helps to bring balance and harmony as well as stimulating and uplifting properties. This powerful combination works wonders to transform a weary body and mind in just the time it takes to have a bath.
- 8 oz pink Himalayan sea salt
- 2 oz coconut oil
- 1 oz sweet almond oil
- 10 drops rose geranium essential oil
- 5 drops pink grapefruit essential oil
- 5 drops ylang-ylang essential oil
- Dried rose petals (optional)
Mix together all ingredients in a jar. Warm up the coconut oil if you need to soften it. Add dried rose petals to the top of the jar if you want a more luxurious bath, or if giving this as a gift. Store in small batches in the fridge to prolong life.
Directions for Use
This Himalayan pink salt scrub is best when applied before a warm bath. Massage into wet skin all over the body and step into a warm bath for at least 20 minutes. Soak, rest, relax, and dry skin after the bath. Bring a cool glass of water to the bath with you as detoxification can be powerful.
You may feel a bit woozy right afterward. Drink at least two 8-oz glasses of water during and within one hour after the bath. If this routine is being done before bed, you should have a wonderful night’s rest. In the day, give yourself an extra 30 minutes to relax after the bath, then jump up and get on with your day.
