You Will Need

Bowl: large

3 cups Himalayan pink salt

1/3-1/2 cup sweet almond oil

15 drops grapefruit essential oil

25 drops frankincense essential oil

Airtight jars

To Make

In a large bowl, combine the Himalayan pink salt and sweet almond oil until the salt has a wet consistency. Add the essential oils and scoop the mixture into airtight jars. The salts will be less abrasive after setting for a day. Use it in the shower or as a hand scrub for an exfoliating and moisturizing treat. 

This makes a great self-care treatment or a gift any time of year. Just change out the essential oils to your liking for the change in seasons.
