A key ingredient in this scrub is wet sand, so it's the perfect project to whip up at the beach for a relaxing "spa day" on the shore.

- 1 cup coarse sea salt (in a jar)
- Sweet orange essential oil
- Jasmine essential oil
- 8 oz. jojoba, olive, or camelia oil
- Wet sand
- Small plastic pail
To the jar of sea salts, add six drops of sweet orange essential oil and four drops of jasmine essential oil; shake to combine.
Then, in a plastic pail, combine the scented salts, a few tablespoons of the oil you used for the Protective Hair Treatment, and two handfuls of very wet sand. Use your hands to blend the mixture.
Sitting at the water's edge, work the scrub onto your arms and legs, paying special attention to rough spots like your elbows, heels, and knees. Rinse your body clean in the waves.
