This Easy Homemade Body Scrub makes for a wonderful handmade gift (or you can make it for a little treat for yourself!). The ingredients are inexpensive and it’s easy to scale up the recipe to make a few batches at once! I love how this homemade salt scrub combines the use of essential oils with red lavender buds and lemon juice. This particular salt scrub uses Lavender and Lemon to deliver a pleasant combination of smells and some special benefits as well.
Benefits of Lavender Oil: The is believed by some to help with anxiety, relaxation, and insomnia.
Benefits of Lemons Essential Oil: This oil is believed by some to help reduce depression, and anxiety as well as help you feel energized.
Benefits of Grapeseed Oil: Grapeseed oil absorbs into the skin easily and can moisturize skin.
You can mix this up in under 5 minutes and it makes 1 half pint jar of salt scrub.

1 cup salt of your choice (I used coarse for this scrub)
