Show Your Love: Pink Salt Foot Scrub

  • Difficulty:Beginner
  • Time:15 minutes
  • Yields:8 oz. of scrub

Now that the SuperBowl is over, our Seahawks soaps made (congratulations to the Seahawks on your win!), it’s time to turn back to our DIY obsessions. Consider this a deluxe Sunday Night Spotlight — today we’re not only introducing you to the wonders of Pink Sea Salt, we’ve got a bonus foot scrub tutorial as part of Show Your Love. Read on to learn more about this versatile salt and how to make a nourishing scrub for yourself.

Extra Small Pink Sea Salt

Pink Sea Salt comes in four different sizes: Coarse, MediumSmall and Extra Small. The coarse salt is great as a garnish on cold process soap or melt and pour, while the smaller sizes can be used in scrubs. Bramble Berry’s Pink Sea Salt is mined from salt beds in the Himalayan Mountains, and it is believed to be the purest form of salt available. You can find variety of tutorials using this wonderful salt on the Soap Queen blog. Some of our favorites include:

From left, clockwise: Coarse, Medium, Small and Extra Small Pink Sea Salt.

Everyone loves a little foot pampering, and this Pink Sea Salt Foot Scrub made with extra small pink sea salt is wonderfully exfoliating. Treat yourself (or someone special) to a day at the spa. As a bonus, the entire kit costs under $25!

What You’ll Need:

7.5 oz. Extra Small Pink Salt
.5 oz. Avocado Oil
2 oz. Liquid Soap Concentrate Base
8 oz. Short Plastic Bail Jar
6 ml Grapefruit Essential Oil

Click here to add everything you need for this project to your Bramble Berry shopping cart!

ONE: Portion out the Extra Small Pink Salt in a medium-sized glass container.

TWO: Add the Avocado Oil and Liquid Soap Concentrate Base. You do not need to dilute the concentrate base.

THREE: Mix the oils and salt together with a spoon. Be sure to incorporate the oils completely into the salt.

FOUR: Add in the Grapefruit Essential Oil and stir.

FIVE: Your scrub is ready for packaging! We like using our 8 oz. Short Plastic Bail Jars. This recipe fills one jar completely, but if you’d like to make multiple jars simply double or triple the recipe.

We’re in the middle of our ‘Show Your Love’ themed week. Keep you eyes on the Soap Queen blog for more special tutorials and discounts coming this week.

      Hi Darlene!

      I hope you give this recipe a try! It’s so simple, and produces such a fantastic product! I love the color as well :)

  2. Can we get a pink salt bar tutorial? I haven’t tried one of those yet, and I love your tutorials because they always work just as described. This way you can also discuss the various salt textures and how that makes soap more or less scrubby. Your mention of the coarse salt being used as a soap garnish has left me yearning for more.

  3. Jennifer says:

    I find this to be a little bit drying, perhaps because of the soap base concentrate. Is there anything that could be used to replace the soap base or maybe something else that could be added for more hydration to the skin?

  4. Jennifer says:

    Awesome! I will definitely try that one too. I loved the foot scrub. It smells sooo good and it seems really high quality. My friend and mom also loved it. My skin is just so dry in the winter. I’m going to order the coconut now. Thanks!

    • Amanda says:

      Hi Jennifer!

      You’re so welcome! I totally get that, my skin is pretty dry right now as well. Can’t wait for it to warm up a bit :). I think you’ll really like the Coconut Oil Recipe!

    Dear Brambleberry,

    I tried this recipe tonight and found that it was clumpy, so I added more avocado oil and soap concentrate, but no more sea salt. It is still clumpy. I was thinking that it would turn out more like your emulsified sugar scrub.

    What should I do, or is this normal?

    Thanks in advance.

      Hi Barbara!

      If you found that your scrub was clumpy, or too dry, I would recommend adding more oil or soap concentrate (like you did). I would try adding a little more oil, and using a whisk, try to break up any salt clumps that might be in the mixture. This isn’t something we had a problem with, but I hope this solves the problem for you!

    I got the pink sea salt and green clay from the Givember promo! I finally tried using the salt in some melt and pour and it went horribly wrong. It wouldn’t mix even a tiny bit into the melt and pour and I ended up with some kind of soapy goo from mixing so much. Had to scrap my idea for a margarita soap, maybe I need you use the bigger salts. :/
