Per Nadia’s video tutorial for making these DIY detox shower scrub bars, you’ll begin by measuring out the cocoa butter, kokum butter and shea butter into a large glass bowl.
Heat until melted then measure out and stir in the baobab oil and a skin safe fragrance oil of your choice. Set aside.
Using a 3″x3″x1″ mold – you can find the one used in this video here – fill each of the mold’s cavities with large rock salt.
Now fill each of the mold’s cavities with the melted butter mix over the rock salt and gently stir the salt and melted butter mixture in each of the mold’s cavities.
Carefully place the mold in the refrigerator – I suggest placing the mold on a cutting board prior to starting this project for easy transport – until the detox shower scrub bars are semi-solid.
Decorate the tops of your detox shower scrub bars with more salt to suit, then refrigerate them in the mold until they’ve fully solidified.
Once your detox shower scrub bars have fully hardened, simply remove them from the mold for use!
I recommend wrapping your detox shower scrub bars in foodservice film until ready to use.
To use, simply massage a detox shower scrub bar onto wet skin in a warm to hot shower, then rinse and pat dry. Then just be sure to keep your detox shower scrub bar dry in between uses.

Don’t have time to make your own detox shower scrub bar? You can buy them instead! One of my favorite sea salt scrub bars is the Grapefruit Cardamom Body Scrub from Etta + Billie. This natural exfoliating sea salt scrub bar is made with certified organic ingredients and combines the therapeutic properties of solar evaporated sea salt with the ultra moisturizing skin loving properties of organic cocoa butter and fair trade shea butter. It’s then scented with the uplifting exotic spicy blend of bright fresh pink grapefruit and herbaceous sultry cardamom. You can find it here.
