One of the best ways to maintain gorgeous skin is manual exfoliation. Therefore, there are various scrubbing products available on the market, ranging from coffee scrubs to herbal scrubs and moisturizing scrubs. Nevertheless, salt scrubs and sugar scrubs remain the most popular choices. It should be noted that there are differences between a salt scrub and a sugar scrub, though.
*If you’d like to know about the differences and benefits of a salt scrub VS a sugar scrub, check out:

For this post, we will be sharing a simple DIY on how to make your own lavender rose salt scrub that can immediately be used for one time, and is free from additional ingredients like parabens and parfum. This scrub is meant to be used on the body since salt particles are more abrasive on the face. If you have sensitive skin or would like to make a face scrub instead, you can switch out the salt for sugar (such as our Natural Raw Sugar).
If you’d like, you can purchase these ingredients from our store:
- Pink Scrubbing Salt (you can mix some Epsom salt in as well, but using only Epsom salt might not give you all the benefits a salt scrub normally has. *If you’d like to know why, do check out this post by Tavoos!)
- Refined Coconut Oil (you can switch this with other carrier oils)
- Lavender Essential Oil
- Dried Rose Buds
Other Tools Needed:
- Measuring cup
- Container to put the finished product in (you can check out the types of packaging we sell here)
1. Measure out 100 grams of pink scrubbing salt and add it to your container of choice. If your container is already meant to contain 100 grams, you can pour it directly into the container.
2. Depending on the kind of texture you prefer, add in 40-50 grams of coconut oil into the salt. Should it be too dry for your preference, you can add more coconut oil.
3. Add up to 4 drops (maximum per 100g, if you’re using Craftiviti’s essential oil) of lavender essential oil to the product.
4. Take the dried rose buds and pinch off the top (don’t break it off too close to the stem) before crushing and adding them to the product.
5. Mix the ingredients together and voila! Your lavender rose salt scrub is not ready to be used!
*The lifespan of your scrub depends on the carrier oil you use.
*The dried rose buds (or any other dried flowers used) will change colour over time.
*The essential oil(s) used may eventually lose the potency of their scent and benefits due to oxidization.
