pink Himalayan salt scrubWant to know some of my favorite blends for salt scrubs?

I leave mine right in the shower or by the tub, and use them every few days. If I want to use them on my face, I substitute the salt for brown sugar and the rest of the recipe stays the same.



1. Coconut & Orange Tropical Scrub

8 oz Himalayan Pink salt
2 oz Coconut oil
2 oz Jojoba oil
30 drops Sweet Orange essential oil (Citrus sinensis)

2. Vanilla & Lime Delight

8 oz Himalayan Pink salt
2 oz Coconut oil
2 oz Vanilla infused jojoba oil
30 drops Lime essential oil (Citrus aurantifolia)

3. Spikenard & Roman Chamomile Sleep Support

8 oz Himalayan Pink salt
2 oz Avocado oil
2 oz Vanilla infused jojoba oil
20 drops Spikenard essential oil (Nardostachys jatamansi)
10 drops Roman Chamomile essential oil (Chamaemelum nobile)

4. Juniper & Lemon Detox scrub

8 oz Himalayan Pink salt
2 oz Trauma Oil
2 oz Jojoba oil
15 drops Juniper essential oil (Juniperus communis )
15 drops Lemon essential oil (Citrus limon)

5. Saro & Ravintsara Allergy Scrub

8 oz Himalayan Pink salt
2 oz Baobab  oil
2 oz Jojoba oil
20 drops Saro essential oil (Cinnamosma fragrans)
10 drops Ravintsara essential oil (Cinnamomum camphora ct. 1,8 cineole)

Directions for all the salt scrubs: Mix together in a 16 oz PET plastic wide mouth jar. In the shower or tub, use a small handful as a scrub and then rinse off the salt. If you want a smaller amount, just cut the whole recipe in half and use an 8 oz jar. Enjoy!

Great post! I received some Himalayan pink salt for Mother’s Day and never thought about using it in a salt scrub. Thanks for the wonderful ideas-I’ll continue my Mother’s Day pampering with these recipes!

Great Blog. Where I can purchase some Himalayan pink salt?

Andrea, these are some really wonderful ideas for supportive blends! It hadn’t occurred to me to use salt scrubs to alleviate allergies. My partner has been relying on my Sinus Relief inhaler these last few sneezy weeks of autumn. I’ll have to whip up the Saro/Ravintsara scrub for him to try! Thanks for sharing!

Hi Andrea~

Awesome post!
I am having my first home party in December. Thinking one of these great recipes would be a nice interactive “sample station” for the guests.

Fun, fun. Thank you for sharing.

Hi Andrea,

I’m new to the site, so I apologize if you’ve answered this somewhere else…
Out of curiousity, why do you choose Himalayan Pink salt as opposed to any other salts… like sea salt, for example?
