Salt and lavender scrub recipe

Here is a recipe for making a scrub for the body with lavender, with just a few ingredients you will get an amazing, almost spa-like result. Get a shredder, a glass container, a spoon, an airtight container, and some wipes. They are needed:

  • 2 tablespoons of dried lavender
  • 2 cups of coarse sea salt
  • 1/2 cup sweet almond oil
  • 1/2 cup of olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon of vitamin E
  • 4 drops of lavender essential oil

Preparation. Grind the dried lavender flowers well and mix the oils, salt the vitamin E until they are well blended. Let it sit for 30 minutes. After this time has elapsed you will notice that the salt will have remained at the bottom and the oil will have come to the surface, this is completely normal, so add the lavender essential oil.

The best thing to do, for ease of use, is to transfer it to an airtight container that has a wide opening. It is applied to damp skin by massaging in a circular motion for 30 seconds, then wipe off with lukewarm water and dab with a clean washcloth, finally apply a non-oily moisturizer.

Recipe for lavender and sugar scrub

An excellent scrub can also be made with lavender and sugar. You need:.

  • 1/2 cup of powdered lavender flowers
  • 2 cups of raw sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of vitamin E cream

Preparation. Place the flowers and sugar in an airtight glass container, then shake well to mix the 2 ingredients, then add the cream and mix with a wooden spoon. The mixture should be placed in a cool, dry place and left to stand for 48 hours. Before using the product remember to shake it well, then take some out and pass it over the body in circular motions. Rinse with lukewarm water.

For both recipes, it is recommended to store the product in glass containers, and never use metal ones to avoid metal deposits that then pass to the body.
