Lavender Salt Scrubs

Lavender salt scrubs help to remove dead skin, softens, adds a nice glow to the skin and are messy. Okay so the messy part isn't a plus, but it's true. I recommend standing in the shower or bath and do the scrub. Use extra time on rough areas like knees and elbows. Some people say you should leave the scrub on for about 5 to 20 minutes then rinse. Yeah right, like that's going to happen! I scrub and soak. Plus the scrub ingredients are nice in the bath water.

Scrubs can be salt, sugar, brown sugar, or even oatmeal. Add some lavender oil for a nice moisturizing lavender scrub. Don't use salt on the face, it's to harsh on delicate face skin.

Lavender Sugar Body Scrub
This one is mild enough to use on the face and the whole body.
Mix together
1/4 cup of granulated sugar
2 tablespoons of vegetable oil or almond oil.
5 drops of lavender essential oil
2 tablespoons of powder milk or whole milk (optional)

This makes enough for one scrub. Just add enough water to your hand to moisten mixture, and rub on your skin. Take extra time on your knees, feet and elbows. Rinse off.

If you use milk in this scrub and If you aren't going to use it all up in one application, then use the powder milk and store remaining scrub in refrigerator.
