Lavender Sea Salt Scrub DIY

It seems that every time I turn around it is someones birthday.
Or I just want to give a gift to let someone special in my life
know that I am thinking of them. :)
I love giving handmade gifts that I know will be appreciated and used.
Every Mom needs a little me time, myself included on that list.
I love to end my day with a hot shower and lavender aromatherapy.
Yea, life can get crazy.
Destiny’s best friend recently moved about 35 minutes north
of our home so play dates have not been as often as they had been.
Even after we played cards, went to the mall, watched a movie.
I keep hearing from her can you please drive me to Lexi’s house
or “Mom, I am really bored.” Yes, some me time is in order.

love the way my skin feels super soft after a gentle rub with this lavender sea salt scrub.
Lavender Essential Oil has the ability to remove
nervous tension, promote relaxation and relieve pain.
I simply love It!

To make your own, first choose some containers.
Old jelly jars, canning jars or plastic containers with lids.
I am using 8 oz. half pint wide mouth canning jars.
You can find the ingredients for this salt scrub at your local health food store.
If you can not locate sunflower oil, feel free to use any other
natural oil like sweet almond, avocado, or olive oil.
Lavender Salt Scrub Ingredients:
18 ounces of Fine Sea Salt
2 ounces of Sunflower Oil
2 ounces of Vegetable Glycerin
1/2 Tablespoon of Lavender Lavender Essential Oil
1 Tablespoon of Dried Lavender Buds

Simply mix all of the ingredients together to make this fabulous lavender sea salt scrub. Spoon your scrub into your container and whaa-laa you are done.

I am going to use one myself tonight, the scent is absolutely heavenly.
I have a date to hop into the shower tonight and forget about
the pile of laundry, my endless “To Do List” and enjoy some me time.
