Pink Himalayan Salt Scrub DIY

I am obsessed with this pink Himalayan salt scrub. Personal confession alert: My legs tend to be incredibly dry—Chicago winters—and I get a lot of in-grown hairs on the outsides of my upper thighs—probably because my jeans fit like sausage casings—and regular lotion just doesn't do anything for these issues. But ever since I started using this pink Himalayan salt scrub, my legs are smooth, soft, and free of bumps, and, most importantly, they're not itchy due to dry skin. They kind of look like the inhumanly shiny legs of celebrities on late-night talk shows (but, like, fatter—and I'm okay with that). It smells amazing and will leave your skin with a bright, youthful glow.

This DIY salt scrub recipe is super easy, and you just need a few ingredients and about 10 minutes. 

DIY Pink Himalayan Salt Scrub Recipe


Combine the above ingredients in a bowl and simply stir them with a metal spoon, and boom! You have an incredibly hydrating sea salt scrub. I store mine in a mason jar with a metal lid. If you don't use it frequently, store it in the refrigerator to make it last longer. It's gentle enough to use every other shower or so, and I especially like to use it while taking a bath with my DIY lavender and rosemary bath salts and burning a Lavender Lemon soy candle. Enjoy!


Lavender and Rosemary Bath Salts DIY

Those of you who know me well know that I am a filth-person who doesn't bathe regularly. But when I do, I go all out. I get like 12 soy candles going and break out my DIY pink Himalayan sea salt scrubYoung Living bath and shower gel (I add lavender and rosemary oil to it—my personal favorite combo), Young Living Art skincare collection, and my DIY bath salts. Post-bath I slather my entire body with Sweet Simple Living's Pretty Legs cream and recite a prayer to my overlord Young Living (jk ... maybe).

But that's enough of my blathering; let's just get to the DIY bath salts recipe. It makes the room smell like some swanky spa, and because it's made from epsom salts, it soothes sore muscles and tired feet. You can get a bag of epsom salts at Walgreens or Target for around $5. 


  • 2 cups of epsom salt
  • 4 drops of lavender essential oil
  • 4 drops of rosemary essential oil

Mix them together in a large bowl, and there you have it! Easy. I use the entire 2 cups for one bath. 

To up the relaxation quotient, light up a Lavender Lemon soy candle (or 12). 


Pumpkin Spice Essential Oil Diffuser Blend

As I said earlier this week, I will never tire of pumpkin spice. It's the quintessential fall scent created from the tears of joy of pumpkins. Sadly I can not burn one of Milton and Margie's pumpkin spice soy candles while I'm sleeping, so I created an essential oil blend to diffuse on those crisp fall nights. 


  • 3 drops cardamom
  • 3 drops clove
  • 3 drops nutmeg
  • 2 drops tangerine


Note: I am a Young Living essential oils diehard, but if your friend gives you a bottle of Now clove essential oil (she realized she hates clove!), you don't look a gift horse in the mouth.
