Awesome Salt Scrubs! 6


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.

Needed items:

Scale
Mixing Bucket
Fine Dead Sea Salt or other salt of your choice
Sweet Almond Oil
Glycerin
Jojoba Oil
Avocado Oil
Sunflower Oil
Fragrance or Essential Oil, if desired
Containers to fill with finished product

Recipe:
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.

Notes:
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.

About Andee

I'm a thirty-something soap snob. I've grown up with handmade soaps, and I love them! I really like making lotions, soaps, and perfumes. I adore mixing scents to come up with something new. My favorite scent is either Wicked or Cotton Candy. I tend to hoard fragrances, I even have an Earl Grey Tea from the MMS catalog. I won't tell you how old it is, but it sure is good!

      If care is taken to scoop the scrub into a shower/tub dish then I would not use a preservative. The introduction of water from the shower would want LiquaPar to be added. For my own use where I keep the water out, none is used.

    Will the large size salts I won in the Friday give away work for this scrub if used for the feet only or will the salts be to large? Can’t wait to get the package. I hope it come as quickly as the package I ordered it was here in 4 days. Amazing delivery service y’all have. Thank you!
