This rejuvenating essential oil body scrub recipe may be my new favorite natural wellness trick. Seriously.
Last week I caught whatever was going around, and felt worse than I had in years. Truly, I cannot remember a time when I could not muster up the energy to leave my bedroom. After spent several days and nights of yuck, it was time to get back to feeling like me again. I was determined to support my body’s recovery and get my head off the pillow.
A few days prior I had made a great bath salt scrub for a client, so I decided to make a health supporting essential oil body scrub for myself too. Fortunately with plenty of oils on hand, I knew just what to use to support my own wellness.
I used a avocado oil as the base for the scrub because I had it on hand but almond oil, grapeseed oil, coconut oil, jojoba oil, etc. all work too! Epsom salt was added because it contains several healing properties and is absorbed through the skin when added to warm water.
The three essential oils I used were Eucalyptus, Rosemary and Geranium oils. Eucalyptus oil can be used for respiratory support, and to promote a rejuvenating and stimulating environment. Geranium oil offers respiratory support and liver support. Rosemary oil supports digestion, immunity and respiration. Plus it enhances mental clarity, which I certainly could have used at that moment.
Almost instantly after using this scrub in the shower, I started to feel like myself again. I’m certainly not saying this is a cure, but I am definitely saying that this essential oil body scrub was an invigorating way to help get my body up and running again. Afterwards I used Thieves spray throughout the room, opened the windows, and changed the sheets. There was no going back now!

Apply to skin and massage gently.
Rinse off with warm water.
Also, please only use therapeutic grade oils if you’re making this body scrub recipe. When your body needs support, you only want the purest products, and some companies add chemical fillers to their oils. I use Young Living oils because of their super high standards. Check out my essential oils page for more information on how you can get these amazing oils in your hands too along with helpful freebies, a gift from me, and tons of support.
