DIY Bath Salts & Sugar Scrubs

I recently hosted an event showing people how I have used essential oils to help me go toxin free in our home. Everyone got to make a few items to take away and I have had lots of people come back to me and say how much they love the home made sugar scrubs and bath salts, so I thought I would share the recipes here too! If you’re still looking for some Christmas present ideas these would be perfect; I’m making some for our teacher gifts. 

Bath Salts

I’ve recently discovered putting Himalayan Pink Salt into my bath water, and really love it and it makes my skin feel so soft.
All you need to do to make your own bath salts is combine 1/3 cup of salts (you could use Epsom if you prefer) with up to ten drops of your favourite essential oils. Present it in a glass jar with lid.

Sugar Scrub

This is lovely to use in the shower or bath to gently exfoliate and moisturise the skin. 
Combine 1/2 cup of caster sugar with 1/4 cup of oil (I use sweet almond) and add  up to 10 drops of your favourite oils.

Some of favourite oil combinations for the salts or scrubs are:

Panaway and Copaiba for tired muscles 
Lemon and Peppermint for energising
Lavender and Stressaway for sleep and relaxation
R.C and Peppermint if I have a cold
Lemon and Orange for uplifting mood and creating happy vibes!

When it comes to essential oils, especially the ones I use on my body, I always use Young Living as I love their ‘beyond organic’ promise which gives me the peace of mind to know that I am using a pure product that is safe and free from toxins.
