    Just Call Me Martha's Note:

    This is a wonderfully relaxing sea salt scrub because of the lavender scent. It is great for calming nerves, relieving stress and aiding in sleep. Almond Oil and Grapeseed Oil are light carrier oils that won't clog pores or leave your skin feeling too greasy, just smooth and moisturized. Most health food stores and some organic sections of major supermarkets carry these ingredients.

    2. 2
      Add Almond Oil, starting with 1/4 cup or so and adding more until reaching desired consistency.
    3. 3
      (When mixed well, it should be like a thick, oily paste.) Break open Vitamin E capsules and add the oil to salt mixture.

    5. 5
      Cover and let mixture sit for one hour.

      Rinse with cool water in shower or bath.
    11. 11
      NOTE: Keep scrub off cuts and scrapes, as the salt will sting.

      Just Wonderful! I did make it with lavender buds but I think it would be not so messy without them. Very soothing!

      I liked this one. I added more like 16 drops of lavender oil, but that was just personal preference. I like the consistency in this one; the amount of oil doesn't overwhelm the other ingredients. My only complaint with this one (and it's minor), is that the dried flowers were a wee bit of a pain making a mess in the shower.

      You can also use Epsom salt to save some money.. works the same way. I've made this before, it is wonderful for a foot bath!
