Using herbs in cosmetology, apart from the obvious fact of using them in the kitchen, is my favourite activity. You can create this recipe by yourself, using very basic home products — sea salt, coconut oil and some fresh herbal twigs. It’s a salt scrub for DIY enthusiasts! It is an excellent product fighting dry skin, it is very easy to do and has healing properties.
What will you need?
Basis for this scrub is the coconut oil. I know – coconut oil is still on top, but it is truly an extraordinary product. It also provides a light creamy texture, which makes the application easier.
Natural sea salt or sugar. The thicker the crystals, the greater the abrasion of the dead epidermis. However, there’s no need to cross the line! Adjust everything to your skin requirements to prevent irritation. Start with finer crystals and increase their thickness if necessary.
I decided to add some fresh rosemary and rosemary oil, since it is a natural painkiller. Eventually, I added lemon for a citrus aroma, but also because the lemon has antibacterial, toning and refreshing effects.
We mix the entire thing in a little bowl and we put it in a jar. Scrub is ready. Natural, healthy and definitely cheaper than offered in shops.
