Simple Scrubs for the Holidays!

Scrubs are so important to us, and so amazing to use! They help to exfoliate the outer layer of dead skin which causes us to feel all dry, parched and irritated.
Scrubs also leave us with baby, soft skin!

Rosemary Salt Scrub

Here is a simple, easy, fun, fast and wonderful gift to give!


Canning jar (your choice in size but I LOVE the small 4 oz. – perfect for scrubs and lotions)

Dead Sea Salt (OR in a pinch you could use Epsom salts)

Dried Rosemary (feel free to crush the needles up more, I like them more chunky)

Rosemary Essential Oil

Coconut Oil (almond or olive would be good too, or oil of your choice)
