Ginger Lime Homemade Salt Scrub Recipe

© Rebecca D. Dillon


1 oz. refined & deodorized cocoa butter
2.3 oz. 76° melt point refined coconut oil
3 oz. grapeseed oil
.1 oz. ginger lime fragrance oil
11 oz. fine dead sea salt
pinch bath safe green pigment powder or mica


Begin by using a digital scale to weigh out the cocoa melt. Place in a large glass Pyrex measuring cup and heat in the microwave at reduced power until fully melted.

Weigh out the coconut oil and stir into the melted cocoa butter. Then do the same with the grape seed oil and fragrance.

In a separate container weigh out the sea salt and and then add a pinch of green (bath approved) pigment powder, for color, if desired. Mix well with a fork.

Now slowly pour the salt into the melted oils stirring with a fork as you go.

Scoop into an 8 oz. container of your choice then allow to cool completely before putting the lid on the container.

To use, simply slather on desired amount in the bath or shower massaging onto your skin as you do so. Rinse well, then pat dry.

    Hey Rebecca! Question- Any suggestions on to how to “Ship” this so it doesn’t leak? Also, what is the difference between a scrub like this and a “emulsified” scrub? (Besides just the ingredients)
    Sincerely, Traci

      Emulisified scrubs contain both a water base and an oil base so they are more lotion like than oily and tend to completely rinse off. This particular scrub is pretty thick and likely won’t leak except under extreme conditions. However you can put electrical tape around the lid where it meets the jar.
