Body Scrub Bars
Epsom salt has been used for hundreds of years for health, skincare, gardening, household products, and more. Epsom salt is actually not a salt at all; it is "a pure mineral compound of magnesium and sulfate." Our bodies need magnesium to live and properly function.
When it comes to wellness, magnesium is great for:
We love taking baths, but sometimes they can get a little dull. These little bars packed with magnesium-rich epsom salt are perfect for extra exfoliation in the winter or simply tossing into the bath to create a relaxing atmosphere while we soak. The epsom salt helps put our muscles at ease while the aromatic herbs settle our minds.
1/4 c rose infused coconut oil
1/4 c chamomile infused coconut oil
If you have a ragweed allergy, do not use chamomile. Try eucalyptus or lavender instead!
1 tsp beeswax
1/4 c epsom salt
LEVO molds or ice cube trays
Don't have a LEVO? Infuse your coconut oil the old fashioned way
In a rush? Use your favorite essential oils instead. We recommend using between 20-30 total drops of essential oils for a dilution of about 1%. *Please make sure that the essential oils you choose are safe for your personal needs at this dilution ratio
Try using table sugar instead of epsom salt for a gentler exfoliation
Other favorite herb blends
lavender + rosemary
chamomile + peppermint
rose + eucalyptus
If you are infusing the coconut oil in the LEVO:
Add 1 tbsp of chamomile and 1 tbsp of rose petals to your herb pod
Add 1/2 c coconut oil to basin
Set your LEVO at 165°F for 30 min
Remove the herb pod and start at step 2 below
If you already have infused oils on hand:
Add infused coconut oils and beeswax to LEVO basin
Set LEVO at 150°F for 20 min to melt ingredients together
Dispense into container with epsom salts
Mix and spoon into molds (spooning works better than pouring because the salt sinks to the bottom of the warm mixture)
Store in the refrigerator to keep solid
Use to exfoliate or throw into the bathtub!
