Q: Why is a scrub with sea salt such a good idea, and not with sugar?
A: Because salt dissolves in warm water, so it won’t clog up your shower drain and is much better for your skin!
If you’ve ever done some DIY projects for in the shower before, you know how helpful this is.
This scrub is really easy to make, and I am sure that you already have all of the ingredients in your home.
This won’t lather up unless you also have some Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Lauryl Betaine, and Cocoamphoacetate and want to use these chemicals in your beauty regiment. However, it will make your skin very soft, and shiny!
- 3 tbsp. Fine sea salt
- 1 tbsp. Juice of a lemon
- 1 tbsp. Orange blossom water (or any other blossom water, like rose water)
- 1 tbsp. Coconut oil
- Optional, for a bit of fun: blue food coloring
STEP 1: Add one tablespoon of melted coconut oil to your salt. Stir it really well.
As you know, coconut oil solidifies at room temperature, unless you live in a really hot country. If you don’t want to stir it each time you use it, you can use another oil, like almond or olive oil.
STEP 2: Now add one tablespoon of lime or lemon juice what you wish. Stir it.
STEP 3: Add your blossom water until the salt looks nice and moist. Stir it again really well.
Now you can add your food coloring if you want. Don’t go overboard. ‘Cause your hands will look get stained after you scrub. Just a hint of color will already brighten up your shower routine!
Bonus tip for those who would like to give it the iconic Lush scent:
Some people just really love Lush for its scents. To recreate it you can always add a few drops of Mimosa, Jasmine, and Lemon or some of your other favorite essential oils to your scrub.
Enjoy your soft, glowing skin!
