Lavender Grapeseed Salt Scrub Recipe

Lavender Grapeseed Salt Scrub Recipe


This recipe may be simple in preparation, but it’s anything but simple in appearance! With a hint of purple color and dried lavender buds speckled throughout the mix, this salt scrub is as pretty as it is effective.

While dead sea salts scrub away dry skin, nutrient rich grapeseed oil replenishes lost moisture leaving the skin smooth and soft to the touch.

It’s a breeze to prepare and comes together in minutes making it a perfect project for those days when you’re pressed for time!


You’ll need:

2 cups Dead Sea Salt

1 cup Grapeseed Oil

Lavender Essential Oil

2 tsp Dried Lavender Buds

Pinch of Orchid Pigment Powder

Jar (We used the Mini Heremes Jars)


In a large bowl combine the dead sea salts and the pigment powder. Start with just a small pinch and blend well. You can add more, stirring after every addition, until you reach the intensity of color you desire (you can also opt for no color at all). Next mix in the lavender buds. Make sure the buds are spread evenly throughout the salts so that every scoop is speckled.




Now that the dry mixture is prepared you can add in the grapeseed oil. Blend well to be sure all of the dry ingredients have been coated with the oil and that you don’t have any dry clumps. You can adjust the amount of oil if you prefer your scrub to be more on the dry side or if you feel that you would like the mixture to be more wet. When you’re ready for fragrance start with just a drop or two of the lavender essential oil and work up. Lavender oil is strong so working with small amounts and adding as you go will ensure that you reach your desired fragrance without over doing it.

Carefully scoop the finished mixture into an airtight container for storage. To use, gently massage over damp skin and rinse with water.

  1. I was looking at the lavender bath bomb recipe. What can I use instead of the almond oil in the recipe? Is grapeseed oil ok and doesn’t change anything to the bathe bomb?
    I am worried about allergies to nuts with one of my children.
    Thank you

    1. If stored and used in a cool dry place (away from moisture/water), it can last around 6 months; if you believe it will be exposed to water/moisture (for example, during use) it would be best to add a preservative such as Optiphen Plus or Liquid Germal Plus for safety. A preservative can possibly extend the shelf life by 1 year.

  2. HELLO
    If I add the Germal Plus liquid preservative, for the above recipe how many drops do I need please.

    1. I apologize, we cannot accurately say how many drops should be used; however, the recommendation is 0.1% to 0.5% of Germal Plus Liquid preservative to the total recipe amount. In this recipe for example, it would be approximately 0.125 oz. of Germal Plus Liquid, if it was used at a rate of 0.5% (25 oz. is the approximate recipe total).

        1. 0.125 oz is around 3/4 of a teaspoon; usually, you’ll use a measuring dropper, or any other tool to help measure/dispense liquids.

  3. Is the salt fine or coarse since there are two options and can I use the fine salt for a facial scrub. I wonder which one you would recommend.

    thanks you s much!! 😉

  4. Instead of using Germal Plus Liquid preservative can you use optiphen? And after adding the preservative how much longer does it add to the shelf life

  5. I was wondering if you could add foaming bath butter to sugar scrubs. Seems like you can get two products for one.

  6. Hi,
    I would just like to ask how much preservative/ emulsifier on each 4oz jar to be added for a betonite clay base? And would it matter of what type you use?

    1. The recommendation is 0.1% to 0.5% of Germal Plus Liquid preservative to the total recipe amount. This case it would be approximately 0.125 oz. of the preservative using it at a rate of 0.5% x 25 oz. (approximate recipe total); if you are using 4 oz jars ( you should get around 6 x 4 oz jars), it would be roughly 0.02 oz per jar.

  7. I read that as a general rule 1% of essential oils = 6 drops. Does this also apply to Germall Plus liquid?

    1. I apologize, we can’t say accurately how many drops equates to an oil percentage, as that depends on the size/volume of each drop; however, the preservative usage recommendation is 0.1% to 0.5% of Germal Plus Liquid preservative to the total recipe amount. For example, in this recipe it would be approximately 0.125 oz. of Germal Plus Liquid, if using it at a rate of 0.5% (25 oz is the approximate recipe total).

  8. Can any carrier oil (such as sunflower oil) be used in scrub? And secondly is it ok to add sunflower oil (for example) to a scrub I purchased that is too dry, therefore mixing two different oils? Thanks!
