Simple Lavender Salt Scrub

Lavender is known for its soothing, calming, and relaxing properties; perfect for a nighttime bath scrub. For this easy gift idea, you will need the following ingredients:

4 oz Dead Sea Salt
1 oz Liquid Glycerin
5 drops Lavender Essential Oil
1/4 teaspoon Opalescent Mica
Lavender Buds (to your liking)

Begin by portioning your salt into a bowl and separately mix the glycerin, Lavender Essential Oil, and mica together. Add the the colored and scented glycerin to the salt and mix thoroughly. Finally, stir in the lavender buds and package your scrub in a 4 oz metal tin with a clear lid. It's so simple and one of the cleanest projects because there are such few ingredients and steps. Also, you can try this with different types of salt, sugar, carrier oils such as sweet almond or jojoba oil, or experiment with different colors and scents. Have fun and enjoy!
