Make Lavender, Eucalyptus, & Rosemary Sea Salt Scrub
I’ve been on a sugar scrub kick for the past few months (see my peppermint, vanilla, and shea butter sugar scrub DIY), but a few weeks ago, I decided to switch it up for a bit with a DIY salt scrub. Why? We had a bunch of extra sea salt from my stock of bath salts ingredients. Making salt scrub is just as easy as making sugar scrub, and it involves many of the same ingredients. If you’d like to learn how I make lavender, eucalyptus, and rosemary sea salt scrub, read on.
- 1 cup sea salt
- 1/8 cup coconut oil
- 1/8 cup sweet almond oil
- Essential oils (I used lavender, eucalyptus, and rosemary)
- Mixing bowl and knife/spoon to mix
- Optional: Argan oil
Tip: If I don’t want a super-oily scrub, I start with less oil than I outline in this tutorial. I can always add more, but I can’t take it away. I add it in slowly until I’m happy with the consistency.

Tip: Sometimes I use another carrier oil, such as jojoba oil, in place of the sweet almond oil. However, I do suggest keeping the coconut oil in this recipe; coconut oil solidifies below 76 degrees Fahrenheit, so it will give the scrub some consistency and make it easier to manage when applying.
Step #2: Next I add essentials oils to the bowl. I used 10 drops lavender, 5 drops eucalyptus, and 2 drops rosemary. Rosemary is strong and has a pretty distinct scent, which is why I only used 2 drops.
Step #3: I mix very well and store in an air-tight container.
