    I think I am going to have to try this for my kitchen. I made one back in the fall but it was too oily so excited to try a different “recipe”.

      You can adjust the amount of oil too make it dryer or wetter it you like. Just add it in slowly until you reach the consistency you like.

    looks neat..for how long can one keep or use this mixture…is there like an end date on it?

      It didn’t say in the original recipe, but I would try to use it within 3 months. If you keep it in the fridge it should last even longer. Salt and lemon are both natural preservatives (i looked it up here) so it should be ok. To keep bacteria from getting in the jar, use a spoon when taking it out.

    This is a great idea! I have a wonderful recipe for a lip scrub/moisturizer that would be nice with this as well. I am already thinking Christmas gifts. . . Thanks for the recipe and the printables!

    I’ve made bath salts lots of times before, but always used epsom salt. This would be fun to try something different. And I love the way you’ve packaged your salts, so cute!

    I followed you over from Homemaker on a Dime. I would love if you stopped by my blog.

    Thanks for sharing,

    I’ve always wanted to make bath salts, and now I know how. I close to a Whole foods so can pick everything up there. Thanks so much for sharing the “recipe” and for sharing your creative inspiration with Sunday’s Best!

    How much does this recipe make? I am trying to determine how much sweet almond oil I will need. I am thinking of making this for Christmas gifts for family. 🙂

      The recipe makes approximately 12oz of scrub, depending on if you add more or less oil to adjust the consistency to how you like it. I used the 8oz jars. So the recipe was enough to fill 1-1/2 jars. Hope that helps.

    Hi, Does it matter what oil is used? Sunflower maybe? Almond Oil is quite expensive down here in New Zealand.

    how did you do your labels? what software or anything? I really like them, and would like to make labels for other things like chapsticks, vanilla extracts, etc. Thanks for the information and I LOVE the scrub. Just made it. It is going to be mother’s day gifts.

      Glad to hear you liked the scrub! I made the labels on a graphics program (Corel Draw). If your good at Word (which I’m not) you can probably use that. I’ve seen free printable labels on other blogs before, If you google ‘free printable labels’ or look on Pinterest you can probably find a ton. Hope that helps. 🙂

    I wonder if grapeseed oil would be a great substitute of the sweet almond oil?

    Glad I found this! In the organic beauty section at Wally World there is a scrub that is called mint lemonade, or something like that. Anyway, I LOVED, ADORED, DROOLED over the scent of it and would purposely open the jar just to catch a whiff of it. Now I can make my own using this recipe with the add in of mint. Thanks!
