Beauty Uses for Sea Salt | $1 Beauty Buy

Sea salt has been used for centuries in a variety of ways.   My favorite uses are in the department of personal care.  It is the ultimate economic beauty buy.  Here is why...
  • Purchasable for $1 at the Dollar Tree.
  • Add a 1/2 cup to running bath water for a softening soak.  Add scented oil for Aromatherapy. 
  • Dissolve 1 tsp sea salt in a pint of hot water, soak cosmetic pads. Apply pads on eyes to reduce puffiness.
  • Make an exfoliant for dry winter hands or summer feet.  ½ cup sea salt and ¼ cup oil. 
Baby oil, massage oil or body wash will do to mix your sea salt scrub.  Vitamin E oil, known for its positive effects in skin care, is an inexpensive luxury that can be found for around $2 dollars at discount stores..

    In addition to the above beauty resources I am loving sea salt in the following ways...

    cleaning the coffee pot
    scouring greasy cast iron and stone ware
    as an antiseptic mouth rinse
    keeping flowers fresh
    flavoring food deliciously 

    Gotta love a multipurpose product.  How are you using sea salt?
