Sea Salt Scrub with Printable Labels


I whipped up a few batches of my sea salt scrub for Christmas gifts this year and I thought I should share my easy recipe with you. If you are looking for an inexpensive, but absolutely luxurious homemade gift to give this holiday season, you’ll love this easy sea salt scrub recipe. I even included some free printable labels for you 🙂


This easy and nourishing recipe contains sea salt, coconut oil and essential oil. That’s it! And your skin will love it. I know mine does. In fact, if I know I’m going somewhere special, I make it a point to use this sea salt scrub on my face and body the night before so my skin is super smooth and glowing. 


You can use it for your face (which is what I do twice a week) and you can also use it on your body. It’s especially fabulous for feet – your feet will feel so smooth and soft afterwards 🙂

Here’s why I love this scrub so much and why I’ve seen such great results from it:

Sea Salt is filled with important minerals and contains many healing properties for skin health. It has the unique ability to pull toxins from beneath the skin. It’s an amazing exfoliator to remove dead skin cells, leaving your skin soft, smooth and glowing.  Sea salt also stimulates cell growth, improves circulation and helps the skin absorb and retain moisture. You can find sea salt almost anywhere. Just make sure it’s natural sea salt with no additional additives. Fine or extra fine sea salt works best for this recipe, especially if you are using it on the face.  


Coconut Oil has the unique combination of anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-bacterial and hydrating properties, making it an excellent choice for a nourishing and healing anti-aging scrub. It not only repairs skin, but it hydrates, smoothes, reduces inflammation and quenches free radicals. 


Essential Oils have powerful natural healing properties. For a general, all purpose essential oil that promotes healthy skin, I recommend using lavender. It’s fabulous for all skin types. If you have a specific skin need, here are my essential oil recommendations:

Lavender Essential Oil for normal or sensitive skin (this is a wonderful all-purpose skin essential oil and great for all skin types)

Frankincense Essential Oil for aging or mature skin

Geranium Essential Oil for dry skin

Lemon Essential Oil for acne prone or oily skin

    Look how cute and crafty you are (thanks for the printable) 😉 I just went to a friend’s house over the weekend and we made tallow face cream and sugar cookie body scrub from Mommypotmus…so I can add this to ‘must make’ list. I hope you had a good Thanksgiving and are getting ready for Christmas 🙂

    love this easy gift idea! Do you melt or soften the coconut oil first?

    • Primally Inspired

      Hi Karen, it doesn’t matter either way, but it’s a little easier to mix when the coconut oil is a little on the soft side. Our house is fairly chilly in the winter and my coconut oil is as hard as a rock this time of year. I didn’t soften my coconut oil and just had to put a little more muscle into the mixing 🙂

    Can’t wait to try this! Love that I have all of the ingredients on hand. My coconut oil is rock hard too…think I will melt it first. Do you find that it leaves your shower slippery when you rinse it off?

    • Primally Inspired

      Hey Elizabeth! It does leave my shower slippery. When I use it, I make sure to spray down my shower as soon as I get out. It helps cut the oil right away (I use Branch Basics cleaner, but any cleaner should help).

      Also, just make sure to let the coconut oil cool down a little bit before you add it to the salt – don’t want the salt to dissolve! 🙂

    Hello! I just made these and they are adorable! I have a question to ask that may be a little silly but here goes… I wasn’t smelling much of the oil in my batch so I ended up doubling the drops. Now Im a little concerned that it could be too much and become toxic. Do you think this could be a problem? Im not an EO expert at all. If its too much then ill just add more salt and coconut oil to balance it out.

    • Primally Inspired

      Hey Liz! What essential oil did you use? I am not an essential oil expert, but if the same thing happened to me, I personally wouldn’t even worry about it, especially if I used lavender. I’ve also seen similar sea salt recipes using more essential oil than I have listed.

    I would like to make this sea salt scrub but I only have Redmond Bath Salts , it’s a fine salt . The ingredients on the label says … ancient sea salt unrefined no additives . What do you think ? Thanks

    thank you for your reply! I put in lavender and lemon oil. Im glad to know they are still safe! 🙂

    Is it possible to use coarse sea salt if it’s all that one has?

    • Primally Inspired

      Yes for sure! Coarse is a little rough for the face, but it’s great for the body. You can still use it on your face, just be extra gentle when scrubbing. Also, you can pulse the coarse salt in the blender or food processor (or coffee grinder) to get it finer if you wanted, too!

    How long does this last? I am planning to make these for gifts for my bridesmaids and I would love to get them made as far in advance as possible..but I didn’t know if it would go bad after a certain number of months. Thanks!

    Hi There! I am LOVING your whole website, have been reading all bits and pieces of it all morning!
    So informative, thanks for that. Can I use Epsom salt in this “recipe”?

    I started off reading your website (got from Pinterest) by reading about oil pulling, which I have been doing
    for 4 days. I did about five minutes the first day, but today is the fourth day and have done 20 minutes easily
    today. I believe I can start to see some benefits already, but the most immediate one is how great my teeth
    and mouth feel afterwards. I hadn’t read about scrapping your tongue afterwards (like the spoon idea), but usually brush my tongue and roof of my mouth when I brush my teeth anyway, so maybe that is working for the scrapping. Are there any detrimental problems if I want to oil pull both morning and night and is it fine to do either or both on a daily basis? I don’t have any problem with not swallowing it and I spit it out when done into a paper towel and throw in the burnable trash (we live out in the country, okay to have a burn pile).

    Thanks for all the info’ and any reply to this email. I’m looking forward to becoming a regular reader of your site/blog.

      Hi Rachel! Thank you so much for all your kind words – you made my day 🙂

      Yes, Epsom salt would be fabulous in this recipe! I love that idea!! I’m going to do a 50/50 mix of Epsom and sea salt the next time I make it!

      To answer your oil pulling question, it’s awesome and even more beneficial if you can oil pull 2 times a day! Holistic dentists recommend doing it 2 or 3 times a day if you have any health issues or dental issues. You *may* experience a few more slight “detox” symptoms at first if you do it twice a day (sinus drainage, face breakout, headache, nausea, etc.). If you do, that’s normal (just a sign that your body is getting rid of the extra toxins which is a really good thing) and then after a few days you should be feeling awesome 🙂

      We live in the country, too and often have a burn pile – love living in the country!!

      I’m so excited to have you as a regular reader!! <3

    Hi Kelly! I love your recipe & so excited to make it with my doTERRA essential oils to give as gifts!! It seems like I am having trouble downloading the labels. When I click on all the great links you have posted to download them it says “not found”.

    I love this recipe so thank you. I used Dead Sea Salt- fine but I found my salt wasn’t fine enough for my taste…urgh it felt rough on my skin, so I think I’ll recycle this batch in some baked bath salts. Have you tried it with a different oil? I find the feel of coconut oil bit greasy, maybe i’ll use less next time or I’ll try Avocado oil for me next.

    I have been using your salt scrub recipe for over a month now and I love it. I use Himalayan sea salt that I get at Sprouts for $2.99 a pound. I did add about 1-1/2 tsp Argan oil to your recipe just because I have it but otherwise it is your recipe all the way! It is so generous of you to provide labels for people like myself who haven’t a clue how to go about creating something so clever! Thank you for a terrific recipe and a very informative web site.

    Printable labels dont work because the 2 lines of copy at the top make the whole thing off. Anyone know how to fix this.??

    Absolutely love this! Does a mixture of kosher salt and Epsom salt work? Just seeing if I can use what I have in the house before going out and buying items…

    tried to use your printable labels but they failed to load on my computer. Any suggestions.
