DIY Lavender Salt Scrub

How easy is it to make a lavender salt scrub?? VERY easy!! With only a few ingredients (that you may already have in your home) and a few extra minutes, you can make your own jar of scrub plus a few extra for gifts. You need only four ingredients to make these moisturizing exfoliates. The base can be made from Epsom salts. Makes about 2 1/3 cups.
2 cups Epsom salts
1 cup carrier oil
8 drops essential oil(s)
Dried lavender buds
Special equipment: plastic pipette, canning jars
  1. Stir together Epsom salts and carrier oil (we chose a Burt's Bees baby oil but any body oil on hand will do) in a bowl, mixing well.
  2. Using pipette, add the essential oil, 1 drop at a time.
  3. Add the dried lavender buds.
  4. Spoon into canning jars.
  5. Add a label and pretty ribbon.

Imagine how surprised your friends will be to receive such a lovely lavender gift...
And they will think it took you hours to create!
