Salt of the Earth

I was recently in Hilton Head, South Carolina, where several fish restaurants featured a salt scrub in the restrooms, designed to disinfect your hands, as well as soften your skin, and remove any strong fishy smell. The results were spectacular.

It is easy to make your own salt scrub out of natural ingredients for a fraction of the $25 price tag on the restaurant versions.

Exfoliating Salt Scrub:

Place 1 cup of coarse sea salt into a large glass bowl. Slowly stir in about 2 cups of pure coconut oil until the mixture is thick but spreadable. If you wish to add a scented essential oil, you can mix in 5-10 drops at this time.

Pour into a glass mason jar and use as needed on hands and body. Your skin will be exfoliated and soft to the touch.
