How does Patchouli & Lime body scrub sound for a pick me up?
Such a week already, and between homeschooling the kids, working from home and renovating our house, I was feeling a bit ‘had it’ So I decided to treat myself with a homemade aromatherapy scrub tonight..... in a long hot bath.
I used Epsom salts, sea salt, hemp oil, olive oil, dried mint & lime and patchouli essential oil to make this scrummy scrub, but you can use your favourite oils in place of these.
- 1 cup epsom salts
- 1/2 cup fine sea salt
- 1/2 cup baking soda
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 2 tbsp hemp oil
- 1/4 cup dried mint only if you have it
- 20 drops lime essential oil
- 20 drops patchouli essential oil
Add all the ingredients into a bowl and mix well, add a few more drops of essential oil if you aren't using the dried mint. You could replace the dried mint with 6 drops of peppermint essential oil.
Keep the scrub in a glass jar, and use around a tbsp in a shower or bath of wet skin.
If you have very sensitive skin, or any cuts on your body the salt may sting, so replace the epsom salt with raw sugar to dilute the salt mixture.
