Homemade Coconut Vanilla Salt Scrub Recipe and Week #2 of The Happy Mom Box!

Today is Week #2 of the

Happy Mom box activity.


If you are new here, you can see what all the fun is about by visiting the Happy Mom Box page!

Today I pulled out of my Happy Mom box,

“Make a homemade salt scrub and use it in the shower”.

So, I did and I decided to share the recipe I made today with all of you!  It is super easy to make and just smells so good, edible in fact!

How to Use

Use a spoonful or two of the salt scrub, massaging it into the skin using a circular motion.  I like to use my salt scrub in the shower because it is messy, but you could also use it in the tub.  Be careful because the tub gets slippery!  I usually throw a wash cloth on the floor of the shower to stand on and this keeps me from slipping and falling.  Make sure that you wash the shower floor after you are done and before anyone else uses the shower to prevent them from falling!

To recap:

I made this salt scrub this morning and used it in the shower.  It was delightful and my skin feels so silky smooth!

What is your favorite recipe for a salt scrub? What essential oils do you like to use?
