Root Chakra Body Scrub

This post may contain affiliate links.

In honor of the root chakra, that piece of energy that is uniquely red in color and found at the base of the spine, consider whipping up this body scrub. Treat yourself to an experience targeted in treating this specific area to help you feel safe, grounded, and secure- the feelings you will be rewarded with when your root chakra is in harmony.

According to Margaret Alcantara in Chakra Healing, "When the root chakra is in harmony, we are profoundly connected to nature, feel grounded, trust in the natural laws, and are able to move with the ebb and flow of life" (22). On the flip side, when we are out of alignment in this area, we may not only feel a sense of disconnect between our beings and with nature, but also with our families and communities. What's more, there may be a sense of fear that our most basic needs are not going to be met- we might wonder where we will find our next meal or a warm place to sleep.

If you feel like you need to send some more love to your root chakra, essential oils will help. Alcantara suggests vetiver and sandalwood, two fragrances that are strongly tied to the earth and will work wonders in keeping us grounded and stable, relieving anxiety and any insecurities that you've noticed have arisen.

This scrub utilizes Himalayan salt to achieve its reddish-pink color, as well as nonpareils candies for a little extra red pop of color. Breathe deeply. Inhale and exhale. You're home. You're safe. You're secure. And your skin is wonderfully smooth.

What You’ll Need:

¾ cup fine grain Himalayan Salt

¼ cup white sugar


In a small bowl, combine the Himalayan salt, sugar, and coconut oil. Add the red nonpareils, the vetiver and sandalwood essential oils. Stir to combine.

After cleansing, apply to the skin. Scrub for 1-2 minutes in a circular motion. Wipe off with a wet washcloth followed by a clean, dry towel for added exfoliation.
