Epsom salt is a miracle substance in my home! I often take hot baths with Epsom salt to help soothe my achy muscles after working out. It’s inexpensive and available at most big box stores and pharmacies. I prefer to use It also helps to moisture and exfoliates my skin, perfect for when I have to shave! I also love it for my face, yes my face!
Here is how you can make your very own Epsom facial scrub:
- Add 2 cups of Epsom salt into a medium sized bowl.
- Add 1 cup of an oil of your choice such as grape seed oil, olive oil or almond oil. I personally use olive oil.
- Add 2 drops of your favorite essential oil.
- Mix all of the salt and oils thoroughly.
Store the facial scrub mixture in a plastic container with a lid. As long as you close the lid tightly after each use it should last 3-4 months. I use mine so often that I make a new one monthly!
Hint: Use a handful of the Epsom salt scrub for your entire body or for your legs before you shave. You’ll love how your skin looks, feels and smells.
