  • Caroline Wachsmuth's natural Pink Salt Body Scrub recipe Foodadit

Say yes to shedding old skin. Creating this salt scrub is easy and has an elaborate and luxurious texture. The skin is left so soft, clean and perfectly hydrated thanks to all of the oils. Use once or twice a week depending on the season. Gently rub on wet skin, all over your body, then rinse thoroughly. And as you don’t need a lot, it will last for a long time. No excuse, go play. Be fun.

  3. You’ll love this. And remember, no need to purchase all ingredients, you can play with only a few essential oils of your choice.
