Many people have emailed that they’d like to make this Spa Scrub as a Gift – GREAT IDEA:
YOU can make this Gorgeous GIFT sanitizer, hand wash, hand healing, or spa moment? YES! This is the perfect economical fun solution to gels and soap at every sink, etc. it is easy, fun, and luxurious! There doesn’t seem to be a shelf life, the oil protects the salt, the salt is a preservative, so the only downside is the scent may need to be refreshed:)
Salt is a natural cleanser (cleanses the ocean afterall), certainly kills bacteria, and salt is very alkaline, the oil is softening, the scent refreshing, and all the rest, well, it’s heavenly! Your perfect scrub for cold weather, dry skin, or simply to treat yourself. Especially good if your hands are in and out of water all day, no dryness. Great for home or office, anywhere really.
Well here you go, (Dollar Store) container with lid and ingredients are simple, oil, salt, and essential oils for fragrance – best of all, make it in 5 minutes for incredible gift giving! Everyone loves this, men, kids, and of course women. I keep a bowl at every sink – no more soap in my house!
DIY SPA SCRUB for less than $5.00 (much less depending on ingredients), including container! Pictured is sea salt, grape seed oil, drops of essential oil, in a (dollar store) candy dish, all sitting nicely in my guest bathroom. Guests use it dry to wash their hands (massage themselves), rinse and not only is it anti-bacterial, it leaves your skin ooh la la soft and supple
With dry hands, scoop about 1/2 tsp into your palm, rub all over hands and wrists and be careful, I find myself standing thre for minutes on end before rinsing – simply rinse with water. Your hands are soft, clean, and you feel great!
As Pictured, my scrub is scooped into a $1 (candy dish I believe, but filled with salt scrub, in this case, cut off chop sticks from a Chinese restaruant, and scotch tape wrapped to join top and bottom, makes it perfect to wrap in cellophane with a bow, or a bag with a fragile sign) you can see my glass dish with a lid.
NOTE: I’ve placed in every bathroom, plus one at the kitchen sink ~ everyone looks forward to washing their hands!
ALSO…..Not just for hands, but makes a great body scrub before a shower, foot scrub at the end of a hard day, just remember apply dry, then rinse!
My calculated cost: $1 – $5 (I used Grapeseed Oil, WO Essential Oil Blend, Salt, and purchase containers at my local Dollar Store or department store).
Today I made 6 containerful in one bowl, then scooped, sealed, and wrapped in clear saran wrap with a bow and Instructions “rolled as a scroll, attached with a ribbon“, as follows:
1 Minute Spa Massage & Hand Cleanser
Directions: Scoop 1/2 tsp (depending on the size of your hands), dry rub for 1 minute, rinse and dry!
Salt is anti bacterial, oil is softening, & together the perfect cleanser & spa massage!
NOW, ENJOY AND MAKE IT YOUR MOMENT!

Maraline’s DIY Spa Massage ScrubDIY 1 minute spa scrub (and cleanser) softens, massages, and cleanses your hands & arms, great for the whole family, my son loves it! Everyone Loves My DIY Spa Scrub!
Keep in mind when you read the ingredients that you can improvise, that’s how the best recipes are found! So if you already have a massage oil that’s scented, or maybe some salts that are already infused, you can change this up. The basic ingredients, salt, oil, scented essential oil, in whatever combination you like.ENJOY!You will need:Salt (use inexpensive salt, not your unbleached sea salt,this may be the only time you want to buy bleached LOL)Grape Seed Oil or Massage Oil (cold pressed Grape Seed Oil is light and has no scent (it also can be used as a high heat cooking oil); can be found at your grocery store, and it’s also sometimes sold as a massage oil)Essential Oil Drops (any that you have on hand; lavender, peppermint essential oil drops work well – my personal favorite is Lemon with Spearmint, and I crush a few spearmint leaves in the mix)
NOW MAKE IT IN LESS THAN 5 MINUTES: Directions: Pour about 1/4 cup of oil into a bowl, add salt until it mushes up like a white snow cone (see photo), add 20 – 30 essential drops in any combination, stir until it smells the way you would like it to smell. That’s it. You can adjust to the size of containers.
EAT, DRINK, BREATHE the BEST! ~ Everything in my health world all comes back to what our body is made of, the minerals of the earth, a little oil is needed, and plenty of salt water, i.e. best remedies are: Living Clay, Unbleached Sea Salt, Pure Water, and Cold Pressed Oils, see “Which Oil, and Why” article.
