Ahh, who doesn't love a spa day. Here's an easy way to have one inexpensively and immediately.
This is a "recipe" for an epsom salt body scrub. Epsom salts are great for your health because they are a pure mineral compound (magnesium sulfate) that gently exfoliates your skin and smoothes rough patches. It also provides your body with magnesium which eases stress, relaxes muscles, relieves soreness, lowers blood pressure and creates a happy, relaxed feeling.
You can purchase epsom salt at any drugstore, pharmacy, CVS, walgreens, etc. It's very inexpensive ($2-$5) and you get a large amount for your dollar. You'll also need a little oil (olive oil, almond oil, jojoba oil, coconut oil, your choice) and any essential oils you'd like to use as scent.

This is really easy to make. And if you make extra, it becomes a perfect gift for birthdays or holidays!
- 1 cup of Epsom Salt

- three drops to two tablespoons of oil of your choice (use the amount you'd like depending on how oily you want it)
Blend the ingredients together in a bowl or jar using your fingers or a spoon. And now you're ready to scrub away! This will last in your cupboard for a long time.
