Make Your Own Relaxing Luau Bath Scrub
Do you make your own bath scrubs ever? I kind of love how easy and fun these are to make. They are super simple and lovely to give to people as presents also – if you package them up prettily like these.
2 C Epsom salt
1 cup sugar
1 C coconut oil
2-3 drops of yellow, orange, and red gel food coloring
3-5 drops of each Orange, lemon, and rose essence oils
-Combine the Epsom salt, sugar, and coconut oil. Stir until mixed.
-Divide the scrub equally into 3 bowls
-Add 5+ drops of Lemon essential oil into bowl #1.
-Stir in the drops of yellow gel food coloring in the same bowl (#1). Mix well.
-Add 5+ drops of orange essential oil into bowl #2. Stir in the drops of orange gel food coloring into that bowl. Stir well to blend both the essential oil and gel food coloring.
-Add 5+ drops of rose essential oil into bowl #3. Stir in the drops of red gel food coloring. Stir well to blend the essential oil and gel food coloring.
-Layer the colored scrub in the order of your choice. Example: yellow on the bottom, orange as the second layer and red as the top layer.
-Choose a container or jar with a lid of your choice. A Mason jar would look outstanding.
– Place in a corner of your bath tub.
Benefits of essential oils:
Lemon….Emotionally and spiritually, promotes focus and clarity. Clears the mind of distractions, and helps a person tune in to the task at hand.
Orange….Energetically, is uplifting to the mind and emotions. Translating to an increase in physical energy, or an elevating mood.
Rose….Wonderful for skin, as well as mood support. Known to be uplifting and heart-opening.
The gel food coloring due to the addition of the coconut oil will rinse off during your shower leaving your skin soft and smooth.

What a wonderful idea! My only concern would be how to store it? I would hate for the humidity in the shower to make the colors bleed. Was that an issue for you?
Smart question! I used it pretty fast, because I live in a house with a teen and a tween. LOL. But yes storing in the bathroom could make it run, or the colours might bleed. My advice is to store it in a fridge if you are giving it as a present and don’t store it near bathroom.
such a fun idea! thanks for this 🙂
Wow this looks so colourful. Must smell lovely too.
I do make my own bath salts with epsom salt and Young Living essential oils. I never though about adding a little color though. Thanks for sharing your wisdom with the #homematterparty this weekend. We love having you.
What a great idea!! Thanks for sharing at the Living With Style Linky party! Be sure to come back next week 🙂
