DIY Earth Friendly Salt Scrub

Earth Friendly Salt Scrub
Treat your feet to a home made salt scrub that will leave your tootsies smooth and pampered! 

What you will need:
Coarse Ground Sea Salt (I like to use Sherpa Pink Himalayan Salt)
Olive Oil or Coconut Oil (I use a mixture of both, you can use either one)
Essential Oil (your choice of scent, I like Lavender or Peppermint, the choice is up to you)
An empty container to store you Sea Salt Scrub in
Lets get started!
First measure out 1 cup of coarse ground Sea Salt and 1/3 cup of Olive or Coconut oil
Now you will pour the Sea Salt into the Olive or coconut oil
Now you will want to add one to two drops of essential oil (whichever fragrance you choose)
You will want to incorporate the Olive or Coconut Oil and Essential Oil into the Sea Salt until all the salt is coated, I stir by hand for about a minute or two.
When the Sea Salt and Oils coat the back of the stirring spoon like the picture above, you can stop stirring. If the sat mixture does not stick to the spoon like such you can add a bit more Olive or Coconut oil until it starts to stick to the spoon.
After your Sea Slat Scrub is mixed, if it isnt as fragrant as you like, you can add more Essential Oil to suite your fragrance fancy. I like mine a bit on the stronger fragrant side, but you can adjust how much fragrance you prefer. All you need to do now is place your Sea Salt Scrub in an airtight container such as a glass jar or plastic container. (Since I made a small batch for this DIY demo, I opted for a small plastic container)
This scrub will last a very long time in an airtight container! Keep out of direct sunlight.
 This makes a WONDERFUL gift to give friends and family! I love that this is Earth Friendly and you can make it right in your own kitchen!
