Fill a container three-quarters full with the salt and top it up with the Epsom salts.

Put this mixture into a mixing bowl and gradually add the essential oil, making sure the oil doesnâ??t create lumps in the salts. Then spoon it into a jar.

Close the lid and leave to stand for 24 hours giving it time for the scent of the oil to permeate the salts. 

Then enjoy the happy feeling of exfoliating your body at a hardly any cost at all!
