Minty Body Scrub

Winter weather can give you alligator skin! Well, not really, but it really can dry things out. Here's a recipe you can make in your kitchen that will help to moisturize and refresh your body.

Minty Body Scrub

1/2 cup fine sea salt
2 Tbsp. Epson salts
3 Tbsp. olive oil
6 - 8 drops peppermint oil
1 Tbsp. mint, fresh, finely chopped (or 2 Tbsp. dried)*

Place all the ingredients in a quart jar. Place a lid on the top and then shake until all ingredients are well blended. When ready to use, apply a small amount to moist skin. Scrub and rinse. Enjoy the tingly, minty feeling on your skin! Smile!

*If you don't have a good source of dried mint, try loose-leaf mint "tea" from the health food store.


  1. I have all these things and could do this. And I really should, too, because my skin is dry. I've been trying to moisturize, though January has humidity levels down to 50% and it's not easy staying hydrated or moisturized.

  2. Sounds great! I wonder if it could be used as a bath soak?
