Harness the power of exfoliating dead sea salt, detoxifying bentonite clay, nourishing grapeseed oil, and your favorite essential oil scents with this luxurious DIY body scrub. Creating your own is as simple as 1-2-3, leaving plenty of room for customization. Experiment with different scents, salts, and add-ins to find your fave – or create custom blends for your friends and family. Pro tip: Have sensitive skin? Substitute fine-grain sugar for the dead sea salt to create a gentler scrub.
