Easy Re-Treat that you can make yourself. Ginger Crush Salt Scrub

I've come across this awesome recipe and just couldn't not to share it with you. On those cold nights when you need just a little pick-me-up treatment, this scrub would be just perfect and it's very easy to make. If you don't have those particular oils recommended here, you can replace them with the ones you have or purchase them by clicking the links of each ingredient.

The bright orange color of this salt scrub comes from Carrot Oil. We've used this boldly colored oil in a small proportion due to its potency. The majority of the Oil in this recipe is Rice Bran Oil, a moisturizing Oil with a pleasant, light texture. (If you don't have it in your cabinets, you can substitute it with Olive or Sunflower) The scrub is scented with Ginger and Tangerine Essential Oils, giving it a sunny, energizing aroma to match its bright, cheerful appearance.

Ginger Crush Salt Scrub
Makes about 4 ounces

1/2 cup Sea Salt, Fine
1 ounce Rice Bran Oil
1 teaspoon Carrot Oil
10 drops Ginger Essential Oil
20 drops Tangerine Essential Oil

In a small mixing bowl, combine the Sea Salt, Carrot Oil, and Rice Bran Oil. Stir the mixture well to ensure an even color in the scrub. Next, add the Tangerine and Ginger Essential Oils, and mix again. Carefully spoon the mixture into jars when finished.

Usage & Packaging

Citrus Essential Oils, such as Tangerine Essential Oil, can cause photo sensitivity. Keep this in mind when using this scrub. The Scrub should either be followed with a body wash, or used at night to reduce sensitivity caused by the Essential Oil.

Treat yourself and have fun.
