Rose & Oat Salt ScrubOriginally published on November, 26th 2019. Last updated on March 5th, 2020 Skip to Recipe
This rose & oat salt scrub is a magical, homemade, rejuvenating & cleansing scrub to use before or while you shower. It’s one of my favorite recipes to make for myself or to make in bulk to package into holiday gifts for loved ones.
Why would you use a salt scrub?
There are a lot of reasons on why to use a salt scrub from energetic, to beauty, to relaxation. This rose & oat salt scrub can be used for any of these situations.
Energetic Reasons: Years ago I confided to a friend of mine, letting her know that I was an empath/highly sensitive person. At this time in my life, I didn’t have the tools to work with this skillset. One of the recommendations she gave me was to make salt scrubs or to take a long Epsom salt bath. After taking a shower or bath using the salts, I feel so much lighter and can feel my energy compared to everyone else’s energy around me.
Beauty Reasons: Exfoliating is a traditional way to cleanse & purify the skin. Exfoliation helps to wash away the dead skin cells, to make new for soft and cleansed skin. The texture and cleansing attributes of these salt scrubs help to whisk away the dead skin and leave vibrant and soft skin.
How to use the Rose & Oat Salt Scrub
On freshly washed skin, take a tablespoon of your salt scrub, and gently massage onto your skin in a circular motion. Repeat until you cover your body. Don’t forget about the feet and underarms.
Where to apply the salt scrub?
You can use this gentle & potent salt scrub anywhere on the body. I love imagining myself cleansing away the day’s energy. If I have an injury that may have acquired more energy, I will let the salt scrub sit on that area for a couple of minutes longer before washing it off.
For example, I have a reoccurring shoulder injury that flares up often. With that injury, I will rub the salt scrub on my left shoulder, & let the healing properties absorb. I will then cleanse the area gently in the shower or in a bath.
Precautions while using a salt scrub
If you are using the salt scrub in the shower, be mindful of how you step afterward as the floor can get slippery from the nourishing oils. Be sure to warn your loved ones as well who might be showering or bathing after using a salt scrub!
