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.

Make it!

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.

    I don’t know if it would work on the skin, but images look delicious. My stomach started growling immediately after watching these images. Coming back to skin therapy part, I trust homemade scrub products more than cosmetic products. All you need is learn the right way to prepare it.

      I wish I could, Kristine! I found this lovely wax coated doily in my wrapping paper drawer and used it. A scrap of fabric could also be used instead.

    Is there some way to use this in a shower for folks unable to get in and out of a tub? Are there products to be used in showers rather than tubs? When I was young tubs were great and hardly anyone had a shower.

      Hi Barbara, to use it in the shower you can get into a warm shower for a few minutes, then turn off the shower, apply the scrub all over, and then rinse in warm water. It should make your skin feel great!

    This looks amazing! I happened to pick up some of this salt today at Bulk Barn fairly cheap and already have the essential oils..I think I’ll raid a few dried rose buds from my Sakura Allure Teavena tea to make it REALLY special!
    I can’t wait to try this tonight. Thank you for sharing this. I’ll report back my results. I suffer from degenerative disc disease and spinal stenosis and am always looking for new and luxurious ways to relieve the pain and pamper my aching body. This is just the thing I was looking for!
