How to Make a Hand Exfoliating Scrub at Home

  1. Grind the salt.
  2. Toss the salt into a small blender and grind it until you obtain finer grains (10 seconds). Or if you have a mortar and pestle, you can use this to grind your salt.
  3. Your salt doesn’t have to be completely pulverized. But if you have sensitive skin, it is recommended to obtain finer grains.
  4. Put all the ingredients in a clean airtight glass jar.
  5. Toss the salt, glycerine, natural oil (aroma and colour if desired) in a clean airtight glass jar to incorporate them.
  6. Mix gently all the ingredients until obtaining a homogenous mixture.
  7. Preserve your new homemade scrub for up to 4 weeks.
