Unwind after a long day with this luxurious and calming DIY Rosemary Lavender Body Salt Scrub.

This body scrub is really easy to make. It’s just a bit of Epsom salt, coconut oil and Lavender essential oil. Add a few leaves from a fresh rosemary sprig for an earthy, relaxing aroma.

I like to make a big batch of this DIY body scrub to give as gifts for the holidays, birthdays, new neighbors and even teacher gifts (because all teachers need some pampering, right?). I buy a set of 12 pint-sized Mason jars with a wide mouth and fill each one with this DIY Rosemary Lavender Body Scrub and then tie a cute ribbon to the jar. Voila! 12 DIY gifts made in less than 30 minutes.

About the Ingredients

Epsom salt gently exfoliates the skin, making it feel soft.

Coconut oil is great for dry, scaly or itchy skin. It helps to naturally moisturize.

Lavender essential oil is soothing to the skin and has a calming aroma – making it a perfect addition to any beauty or body care product.

  1. Sam, great catch. That was a typo on my end. The Intro should say Epsom salt. Thanks for catching that!

    You can sub brown sugar – and it’s fantastic as a body scrub too. The sugar crystals are finer so better for sensitive skin.

  2. I am so trying this. I love lavender.
