Gorgeously Green Salt Rub

Gorgeously Green Salt Rub

Forget all the worrying about the dangerous ingredients found in most beauty products these days by making your own.

This salt rub from Gorgeously Green: 8 Simple Steps to an Earth-Friendly Life by Sophie Uliano is easy, completely safe and a perfect salve for dry winter skin.

INGREDIENTS
2 cups fine sea salt
4 cups apricot or almond oil
20 drops of your favorite essential oil (mixing lavender, geranium and orange is always nice)

Simply combine all the ingredients in a glass jar and stir or shake to blend. Get in the shower, wet your skin and then scoop out a handful of the scrub. Apply to your skin, and rub and scrub from your neck to your toes.
