I’m sure many of you have seen these items at the mall or in catalogs and yes they are very pretty and very expensive. I’m going to show you how to make scrubs that are easy, fun and extremely cost effective when you make them yourselves. Your friends and family will definitely think you are amazing.
This is how we do it. Weigh the following item in a one quart zip top baggie (you can also use a bowl and fold the items).
9 oz wt medium bath salt
9 oz wt Glycerin Scrub Base – Paraben Free (mix the base well before using)
Fragrance – 2 mL for a subtle scent or 4 mL for a strong Scent – I recommend checking the MMS Fragrance Calculator
Add seeds, fiber or luffa – if desired
Mixed well – be careful not to over mix, this base has soap and will make bubbles.
Since we used the baggie option we cut the corner of the baggie and piped into the jar and found a lovely label to finish the product. I help the kids make these for their teachers every year and they love it.
You can make this using the Glycerin Scrub Gift Kit available at thesage.com. Yes, labels are included! Perfect for giving that finished look to your jar of scrubs.
