DIY Cinnamon Ginger Salt Scrub




This salt scrub is like fall in a jar. Yum! It smells great, feels great, and just like the Lavender Mint Foot Scrub, it's super easy to make.

It's also great for your skin. Epsom salt is known for soothing tense muscles and drawing toxins out of the skin. Cinnamon brings blood and oxygen to the skin's surface, ginger decreases inflammation, and almond oil nourishes the skin.


Ingredients

1 c. Epsom salt
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp cinnamon
3/4 c. almond or grapeseed oil





Directions

1. Mix epsom salt, ginger and cinnamon in a bowl.



2. Add oil and mix well until salt and spices are completely saturated.


3. Transfer to a half pint jar (using a funnel helps a lot).



Use as often as desired. This also makes a great homemade gift for fall birthdays!

  4. Yum...even though it's not food ;-) I can almost smell it through the computer screen. Katie, you are such a sweetheart. Thanks for stopping by Posed Perfection today and leaving me all kinds of comment love. I anxious to see what I do with my entryway and door too. ;-) I have put a wreath on the door, but it just draws attention to the fact that the door is terribly faded and in need of a new paint job. I have to try to convince hubby that now is the time to do it. ;-) Have a great week, Katie!
    Blessings,
