Sweet Rose Sugar & Salt Scrub DIY [Repurpose your V-Day Roses!]

Keep the love coming after Valentine's Day with a little DIY spa.

If you tuned into my 4 steps to self-love post, you know that while good self-care isn't all there is to self-love, it can still play a really huge part.

This Sweet Rose Sugar & Salt scrub is the perfect way to do that. Plus, it's a great way to repurpose and use up some of your roses from V-Day before they shrivel up.

Sweet Rose Sugar & Salt Scrub

STEP 01.

Measure out sugar, salt, and almond oil into the food processor.

I used regular white sugar and coarse pink sea salt - the kind that comes in a jar that you would put into a salt grinder.

This gives the scrub a really good texture since when you run it through the food processor, the coarse grains grind up a little but are still big enough to exfoliate really well.

The sugar gets really fine which helps the texture of the scrub so that it's not just large salt crystals.

STEP 02

Pick 12 rose petals from a rose & add them to the food processor.

It took me about one whole rose to get 12 petals. Just gently take the rose apart and use the freshest and largest petals. Make sure to wash them in cold water to rinse off any fragrances that were sprayed on them.

I used a pink rose for the scrub in the video and the scrub turned out a pretty light pink.

For the photos below, I used classic red roses, and the scrub turned out the really pretty deep purple color. I think white roses would be super pretty as well. If you try it with different roses, let me know!

STEP 03

Process in the food processor for about 30 sec to 1 minute.

You want to process it just long enough so that the rose petals are fully mixed in, and the salt grains have become smaller. Don't forget to add the essential oils in while it's processing.

Check the texture after 30 seconds then keep going if you think it needs more time.

You can go longer than a minute if you want your scrub to be very fine-grained. I also like a pretty light scrub that isn't bogged down with oil.

If you like your scrub a little thicker, you can just add almond oil 1 tsp at a time until you get the consistency you want.

STEP 04

Put it in a cute jar

I love this little jar because of the cute lid (it also comes in gold).

I have about 3 of them in my bathroom that I use for body butters, lotions & scrubs. Not only are they way cuter sitting on the counter than lotion bottles, they make it way easier to access the products since the lid to this jar doesn't screw on but just lifts on and off.

If you want something that screws, you can use a little glass mason jar or this plastic jar with a lid.

Use on wet face, hands, or body. Scoop a little into your hands and scrub.

Add water as needed. Rinse and pat dry.
