1. In a small bowl, stir the sea salt and oil together until the oil thoroughly coats the salt. Add the extract and stir it in completely.
  2. Hop in the shower. When skin is thoroughly wet, apply with your hands, a washcloth, or a puff scrubber. Massage in and be sure to rinse off thoroughly.


Be good to yourself and the environment by taking a Navy shower (it was developed on ships, where fresh water is at a premium). This simple technique can cut the amount of water you use for a shower by up to 80 percent!

  1. Turn on the shower.
  2. Wet your body and hair.
  3. Turn the water off.
  4. Soap up your body, then shampoo your hair. (Save the shampoo for last so it doesn’t get in your eyes.)
  5. Turn the water back on and rinse off.
