|What about salt scrubs? I decided that we needed to add a salt scrub to our Spa Week. One of the recipes that was in our research and development recipe book is similar to the Body Shop scrubs. The notes that accompany the recipe say people think this recipe is better than the Body Shop Salt Scrubs. I think you will just have to try it yourself to see what you think.
Fine Dead Sea Salt or other salt of your choice
Sweet Almond Oil
Fragrance or Essential Oil, if desired
Containers to fill with finished product
1 cup Fine Dead Sea Salt
1 oz Sweet Almond Oil
1 oz Glycerin
1 oz Jojoba Oil
1 oz Avocado Oil
1 oz Sunflower Oil
Lime Essential Oil (as used for our blog tests)
Weigh liquids into mixing bucket. Add salt and mix thoroughly. Once mixed, the salt scrub can be put in the containers.
I think this scrub would be a great foot scrub, but that could simply be because it reminds me of the scrub my aesthetician uses on my feet when I get a pedicure. The glycerin doesn’t blend with the oils, so don’t worry about the separation because you won’t even notice once the salt has been added. When using, mix well before removing the desired amount of scrub. When taking pictures, I made a mistake and weighed out too much Avocado Oil. Therefore, I had to double my recipe.
Next week we are going to work on cold process soap. Don’t forget the supplies you will need!
