Tea Tree Scrub

I adore scrubs. Absolutely love them. Here at MMS I am known as the Queen of scrubs. Sugar, salt, solid, liquid, soapy, foamy, oily, scratchy, smooth, body polishers and glazes, you name it and I have: a recipe, note, thought or idea tucked away somewhere. My fat orange cat loves scrubs too! Can you believe he climbs into the shower just so he can eat my basic olive oil and sugar scrub? I have stopped scenting it just so I don’t have to worry about him getting into the scrub while I am away. (It baffles me how he can get a size 89 lid off of a jar all by himself. Is this a feature or a bug when it comes to owning a Fatus Catus?) Come join me in the kitchen for this fun and rejuvenating scrub.

I really loved testing this scrub. (Giggle.) I am tempted to take all of the samples home with me. Sigh. I suppose I have to let those who are interested try this luscious scrub as well. This scrub really made my skin smooth and velvety to the touch. The Blueberry Seeds help gently exfoliate the skin while the luffa polishes the skin like a super fine buffer pad. The powdered silk and clay provide some wonderful slip as you gently massage this scrub into your skin. Request a sample in your order today!

    Wow, this looks great! How would you modify it to make it more suitable for oily skin, however? If I replace the hydrovance with a slightly astringent oil such as grapeseed (perhaps mixed with castor), would that work? Also, can castile soap be substituted for the sulfoacetate? Thanks!

    The hydrovance helps the skin moisturize but if you wanted to use oils instead I would recommend using Jojoba, Squalane or Coconut Oil Fractions.

    If you want foaming you can use soap instead of the Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate. If you don’t want your scrub to foam you can just omit it.

    I hope this helps!

    My wild guess is that the recipe (as it is) will work great even for an oily skin, because of the green french clay and tea tree essential oil. The green clay is supposed to be the number one choice for an oily skin (when choosing between various clays)

    Here is the list in order of ingredients.
    sugar, ground pumice, shea butter, water, rice bran oil, french green clay, beeswax, emulsifying wax NF,tea tree oil essential oil, peppermint essential oil, phenoxyethanol, caprylyl glycol. The consistency is like toothpaste.

      I think it looks like a lotion recipe mixed into sugar and pumice and clay. I would make a thick cream consistency, very viscous, then blend into the sugar and pumice with a food processor. I think this is what will make the best mixture. Please let me know if you would have more questions.
