Homemade Bath Scrub Instructions with Salt or Sugar

A scented bath scrub makes an excellent gift for bridesmaids and hotel guests. It is the perfect skin smoother for the bride too!

  • 3 cups epsom salt (or coarse sea salt)
  • 1 cup almond oil (or canola oil or olive oil)
  • Essential oils for fragrance

bath scrub ingredients

To make your own bath scrub, measure out your salt and pour into a large container or pot. Measure the almond oil (or olive oil, etc) and slowly pour into the salt while stirring. Finally, add the essential oil to the desired strength.

Essential oils can be mixed and matched to create unique scent combinations for the bath scrub. I used grapefruit and lemon which was a bright, refreshing scent. Consider trying green tea with tangerine, or lavendar with sage. Remember though, if you are giving these as gifts, try to stick to scents that others might enjoy. Citrus and minty scents are liked by most people, for example, and most fruits are a good bet too.

There are many containers you can choose for your bath scrub, just make sure that it can be sealed enough so it doesn't leak! Clear glass containers are lovely, and if there is no color to your essential oil you can add just a drop or two of food coloring to your bath scrub. (Just a drop or two will not stain skin when you use the scrub).

bath scrub labels

I printed out tags for my bath scrub gifts and attached them to the jar with ribbon. You can also print on sticker paper and make real custom labels. You can make up your own name like "Betsy & John's Lemon Heaven Bath Scrub" and you can list ingredients and provide instructions.

These are great bridesmaid gifts and also would be perfect as a hotel gift for out of town guests, or as part of a gift basket. Have fun making your bath scrub & don't forget to make some for yourself too. What better way to relax from the wedding planning stress and get your skin silky smooth!
