Banish dry skin with this exfoliating salt scrub made with our amazing Himalayan Pink Salt. Exfoliating with salt removes dry dead skin cells to reveal newer skin cells that improve the look and feel of the skin, encouraging regeneration and helping circulation. Himalayan Pink Salt is said to be the purest salt in the world, packed with healthy minerals and can help soothe aching muscles. The addition of Grapefruit Oil adds an uplifting aroma that can make you feel more alert and refreshed. Grapefruit is also a great detoxifier! Mint leaves add to the aroma is fantastic for the skin, as is Coconut Oil that is well known as a moisturising, antibactierial skin aid. This scrub is perfect to use in the bath or put in a jar and used as a gift.

  1. Firstly, pour water in to fill half of the saucepan.
  2. Weigh out the 100g of coconut oil into your pyrex jug, then gently melt on the stove by placing the jug into the saucepan of heating water. 
  3. The coarse himalayan pink salt, is made up of large crystals so while the coconut oil is melting, ground it up to a fine salt using a blender. To create a more homemade feel. If you wish to skip this step, we sell fine himalayan pink salt too.  
  4. Next, take the melted coconut oil off the heat. Pour, the salt into the coconut oil, add the mint leaves, then gently stir with a wooden skewer.
  5. The idea is to keep stirring while the coconut oil soldifies to the salt and the mint are dispersed throughout it. 
  6. If you are making it on a very cold day, place on a cold windowsill for a few moments between stirs.
  7. If making on a warmer day, you could place it in fridge for 5 minutes or so before taking it out and stirring again. 
  8. Add the grapefruit oil to the mixture after about 15 minutes of stirring, just before the coconut oil has completely solidified.
  9. When your scrub has almost solidified, scoop it into jar and give a few more stirs for good measure. Place back on cold windowsill or into fridge (dependant on day) to completely set.
  10. When using: scoop out a small amount and rub into skin before rinsing off - leaving skin feeling soft and moisturised.
  11. Note: the coconut oil will make the bath slippery, so do take care! Also, if using this salt scrub in the summer months, be aware that grapefruit essential oil is photosensitive - meaning it can increase your skins sensitivity to the skin. That's why this scrub is most perfect for winter use.
