When your skin really needs some exfoliating, you want to make a salt scrub instead of a sugar scrub. Fortunately, it’s super easy to make a DIY salt scrub at home with a few simple ingredients.

I used lemon essential oil in this recipe because it’s super invigorating and uplifting – plus it can help to brighten skin. Epsom Salts are very affordable and have so many uses that you should always have some on hand!

Combine those ingredients with nourishing oils like olive and coconut and you have the best body scrub that also nourishes skin as it exfoliates. Give this easy DIY beauty recipe a try and enjoy your smooth skin!

  • In a medium mixing bowl, combine the olive oil and coconut oil. If your coconut oil is too hard, you can lightly melt it.

  • Next, add the Epsom salt to the oil mixture and combine. If you melted your coconut oil, make sure it's cool before adding the salt or you'll lose that great exfoliating texture.
  • Once the oil and salt are combined, add the lemon essential oil and mix until well combined. If the mixture is too soft, you can refrigerate it for 30 minutes to firm up the coconut oil.
  • Store your lemon salt scrub in a sealed container in your bathroom and use to smooth and pamper your skin.
