lavender salt scrub is an easy, unique and lovely gift for anyone (including you)!

So remember those delightful lavender-lemon scones from a few weeks ago?

Well I had a LOT of lavender left over. And with Mother’s Day and end-of-the-school-year around the corner, I thought it would be fun to create some easy, gift-worthy, no-sewing-or-crazy-materials-needed crafts, highlighting this lovely flower.

And you guys – I came up with FOUR. And they’re all fabulous!

First up?

Lavender Salt Scrub l

I’m a bit of an exfoliating addict – and the grainier and scrubbier the better. I’ve always wanted to make my own and this was my chance. And talk about easy – just a few ingredients, and in about 3 minutes I had whipped up a batch of honest-to-goodness scrub that I am completely tempted to keep for myself.

Lavender Salt Scrub l

You can play around with the ingredients – I’ve seen scrubs that use jojoba oil or honey instead of coconut oil, and sugar in place of the Epsom salt. I’m thrilled with this recipe and would love to hear your versions!

Lavender Salt Scrub l


Lavender Salt Scrub (recipe can be doubled or tripled)

2 cups Epsom salt
1/2 cup room temperature coconut oil
2 tablespoons lavender flowers
10-20 drops lavender essential oil

Place the Epsom salt, coconut oil and lavender flowers in a large bowl. Use a spoon to thoroughly combine, then add the lavender oil, starting with 10 drops and adding more if needed.

If giving as a gift, place in a jar and tie with a ribbon – adding a small scoop or spoon if you like.

    Can the coconut oil be replaced with jojoba?

    • sherisilver on June 11, 2018 at 7:49 am

      I’ve never worked with jojoba but I’ve seen this scrub made with other oils so I imagine it would be fine – would you let me know how it turns out if you try it? I’ll put a note in the instructions! 🙂

      Its super heavy and leaves the skin feeling rather greasy afterwards.

        Thank you for sharing that – I’ll stick with the coconut oil! 🙂

    I just made this for my girls’ Easter Baskets! So easy, great smelling and pretty! Thanks so much. I melted the coconut oil a bit to make it easier to mix. 🙂

      I’m so glad! I go back and forth with the coconut oil. Sometimes when I melt it the scrub feels too liquidy. Did you melt it all the way or just partially?

    sherisilver this is an absolute great scrub. Do you perhaps have any recipes for Epson Salt without the Coconut oil?

    • sherisilver on July 22, 2020 at 11:33 am

      Thank you! You can absolutely sub any oil for the coconut oil. I like it because it’s the most “solid” but I’ve made scrubs with jojoba and sweet almond oil. What I would suggest is starting with a little oil and adding more as needed till you get a consistency that you like. The amounts will vary from the one used with the coconut oil so start with less and add more!
