Summer is in full swing and we are so excited for long, sunny days at the beach, roasting s'mores over the bonfire, and of course all of the amazing smell goods in our new Summer Collection
! These dreamy summer fragrances are perfect for keeping those good feelings going all day long. We're so inspired by these new fragrances that we've dreamed up another way to enjoy them with this fun DIY salt scrub!
This scrub is wonderful for exfoliating your skin and giving it a little extra lovin' after those long days outdoors. With gentle epsom salts for exfoliation, antioxidant and Vitamin C rich lemon essential oil to clarify, nutrient rich poppyseeds to reduce inflammation, and nourishing coconut oil to moisturize, this scrub has everything you need to keep your skin healthy and lively this summer!
Our favorite part? It gives you another reason to repurpose your old Candelles jars! We've created this recipe to perfectly fill our 9 oz petite jar vessels. You can find our entire tutorial on how to give your Candelles a second life here
Now let's light up your favorite summertime smell good and get to it!
1 empty Candelles jar
1 cup epsom salts
1/4 cup liquid coconut oil
Zest of 1 lemon
20-30 drops of lemon essential oil
