>> 1/2 cup shea butter
>> 3 tbsp coconut oil
>> 2 tbsp pine powder
>> 3 tbsp olive oil
>> 40 drops pine essential oil
>> 1/2 cup fine Himilyan (or table) salt
In a bain marie (double boiler) melt the shea butter and coconut oil. Remove from heat. Add the essential oil and olive oil and stir well. Let cool in the fridge until it becomes a solid. (This will take anywhere from an hour to two hours depending on the size of the bowl you have the mixture in.)
Once it is a solid (but is still soft), transfer to a food processor. Blend for about 10 to 20 seconds. Transfer the mixture to a bowl, stir in the salt and blend well.
Place into a container that can be stored in the bathroom. Use within three months.
Tip: You can make lavender or any other salt scrub by substiting the essential oil for whatever you desire. The mixture will be smoother due to not having pine needles in it.
