Eucalyptus + Laurel Body Scrub Recipe

by Jade Shutes

To Make: 16 ounce jar


  • 1 cup + 2 tbsp of Fine Sea Salt
  • 1 tbsp. Ground Dried Eucalyptus leaves
  • 3/4 cup Sesame Oil or Jojoba Oil
  • 10 drops Eucalyptus radiata e/o
  • 18 drops Laurel e/o


  • Glass bowl
  • Stainless steel spoon
  • Measuring spoon
  • Measuring cup

General Steps to Make:

Step 1: Find a glass container you would like to work with. Wash with hot water and allow to dry completely. I used a 16 ounce clear glass jar from here.

Step 2: Fill glass or PET container 3/4 of the way full with fine sea salt. Then pour salt into glass mixing bowl. For the 16 ounce jar, this came to 1 heaping cup plus 2 tbsp of salt.

Step 3: Measure dried herb. Grind dried herb in coffee grinder. With some herbs, such as eucalyptus, it is a good idea to run through a sifter to remove stringy parts. Once you have sifted the herb, place 1 tbsp (per 1 heaping cup of salt) of ground herbs into bowl with salt. Stir to combine salt with dried herb powder.

Step 4: Measure 3/4 cup of vegetable oil of choice. Add drops of essential oil/s into vegetable oil and stir until essential oils are well combined with oil.

Step 5: Pour vegetable oil/essential oil combo into salt/herb mixture. Stir with stainless steel spoon until well combined.

Step 6: If more oil is needed, simply add in more vegetable oil.

Step 7: Once all ingredients are well combined, scoop scrub into sterilized container.

Step 8: Label scrub with all ingredients.

My favorite labels for Salt Scrub Containers:


2.25 Circle Labels or 2.5 x 2.5 square labels. I use the same for the back side of the container to list ingredients.
