Rafa Natural’s Detoxifying Seaweed Body Scrub
A Simple Detox from the Ocean
I just love anything from the ocean.
Sea Salt, seaweed (kelp is a type of seaweed), sushi…oh great. Now I’m hungry.
This scrub is super detoxifying due to the powered kelp and Dead Sea Salt. It will smell a little fishy due to the seaweed, but the essential oils will mask some of that.
Be sure to use the fine grain salt to get the best scrubbing action. If you already have Dead Sea Salt on hand but it’s not fine, you can throw it into a coffee grinder and grind it. (I keep one just for making products, not coffee.)
If you don’t have Jojoba oil on hand, any kind of light oil like Grape Seed or Apricot Kernel Oil.
Before you begin, be sure to sterilize your working utensils and jar you are going to use for the scrub with isopropyl alcohol.
1/4 cup powered kelp
1/4 cup Dead Sea Salt – Fine Grain
1/3 cup Jojoba Oil
5 drops Cypress Essential Oil
3 drops Pink Grapefruit Essential Oil
3 drops Fennel Essential Oil
8 oz. sterilized glass container (wide mouth mason jars are perfect). Just remember that glass in a bathroom can be hazardous, so you can use plastic if you feel that’s safer.
- Mix the powered kelp and Dead Sea salt together in a sterilized bowl.
- Add the Jojoba oil and mix well.
- Then add the essential oils and mix very well.
- Spoon into your prepared glass container and seal with a tight fitting lid. It should be good for 2-3 weeks.
To use, scoop out desired amount and rub into skin in a circular motion. Do not use on face. Rinse well but try not to use soap afterwards. Instead, let the essential oils linger on your skin for greater detoxifying benefits. Pat skin dry.
