By principle, the size of your salt crystals will determine how gentle or vigorous your scrub is. Sea salt have naturally bigger crystals compared to table salt.

You’ll need about one cup of oil. Place your choice of salt into a bowl, and pour the oil into the bowl, and stir the mixture until nicely combined. If you would like some fragrance, feel free to add a few drops of essential oil into the mixture.

It is then ready for use! Use it after a warm bath so that your skin would be softer and smoother, and more well prepared for an exfoliation.
