I have never enjoyed a body scrub as much as this one! It polishes, moisturizes, and smells amazing!!
Here’s why it’s SO good for you too:
There are hundreds of salt scrubs out there to choose from, but buyer beware. They are NOT equal. Many claim to be organic when they are clearly not. Some claim to have some organic and natural ingredients, which is sometimes true and sometimes not. So Here’s what you really need to know to avoid toxins in your salt scrub…
To claim organic for anything, the gardening process must benefit the soil. That is not possible with all ingredients because not everything is grown in soil. Example: salt. Whether it comes from the Dead Sea or from the mountains of Himalaya, it is being harvested, not grown, and comes from the sea, not soil. However, it can be free of toxins, or as close as possible. That’s when it’s called a natural ingredient.
Other ingredients likely to be in a salt scrub are a variety of oils, like jojoba, coconut, or almond oil. If they are not organic, there’s a problem. All of these come from plants that clearly absorb high doses of pesticides. So if the oils listed on the ingredients are not organic, don’t even think about it.
And lastly, you should consider the fragrances. This is probably the worse possible ingredient of all. If you see an ingredient listed as “fragrance” and it doesn’t tell you what the fragrance comes from, you can be 100% sure it is synthetic and chock full of toxins. Sadly, well over 95% of skin care products fall under this category. However, if the fragrance comes from an organic essential oil, you’re good to go.
So, by now you’re surely wondering what it’s in this pretty salt scrub. I’m happy to tell you that it is completely free of any toxic ingredients whatsoever.

- Pink Himalayan sea salt is one of the best things to use on your skin due to the vast amounts of nutritive mineral absorption.

For use in the shower. After washing, take a small amount and rub in gently over your arms, legs, anywhere exfoliating is desired. You will find it is very effective at removing cellulite too!!
I decided to make this available in a 4 oz clear BPA free plastic Bail jar. There are no leachable toxins in the container and it is much safer than a glass jar. My main concern was that I didn’t want to risk a glass container getting broken in the shower. And when it’s empty, you’re left with a beautiful air-tight Bail jar to store whatever you want.
