There is nothing better than a exfoliant and soothing oils to make a spa day complete. This fantastic scrub is great with for the whole body. You could also use fine sugar and salt to make a scrub that is nice for the face. This scrub leaves the skin feeling refreshed and dewy without an oily feeling after. Soothing indeed!
Recipe in Percentages:
15% Apricot Kernel Oil
6% Sweet Almond Oil
1% Rice Bran Oil
1% Jojoba Oil
20% Polysorbate 20
1% Chamomile Extract
10% Medium Bath Salt
Added after the scrub is mixed:
0.5% Acai & Mangosteen Fragrance
0.5% Liquid Germall Plus
Weigh the liquid ingredients into the mixing container. With recipes that you weigh like this, I like to add my fragrance oil and preservative to the fixed oils before I add the salt and sugar. Now, add the salt and sugar and stir thoroughly. Fill containers with mixed scrub. Stir the scrub mixture frequently while filling the jars to keep an evenly filled jar.
This recipe filled one 2 ounce Low Profile Jar.
This scrub does contain Polysorbate 20, which helps emulsify the oil and water. The scrub will turn a milky white color when water is applied and leave the skin exfoliated and lightly moisturized. This will help reduce oily residue in the shower or tub, but it will not completely prevent it. We still recommend having bath mats for fall protection.
I used these particular oils for their soothing feel on the skin. The Rice Bran and Jojoba in particular add a silky feeling to this scrub when using it.
