Homemade Body Scrub

Olive Oil & Salt Body Sphoto (9)crub

Here’s a natural way of exfoliating and preparing the skin for the spring/summer months. These basic ingredients can be found in almost all kitchen cupboards, though having the best ingredients you can afford does make a difference. Try to use extra virgin Olive Oil and sea salt (not vegetable oil and table salt!)

Preparation time is minutes and the results are amazing, use this scrub once every two weeks or as needed.  You can substitute the salt for raw cane sugar if you have sensitive skin.


½ cup olive oil

2 tablespoons rock salt/sugar

Preparation method

Mix the ingredients in a small bowl, mix into an almost past like consistency. You will need to crush the salt with a pestle so the mixture is easy to handle and rub into the skin.

Standing in the shower apply the mixture directly onto dry skin and massage lightly (don’t over scrub) rinse off with warm water. Your skin should feel as smooth as silk.

There are many oils and salts to choose from so why not experiment till you find the right one for you!
