|With the holidays on their way like a speeding freight train, I decided to make a gift that is easy to make and store until I’m ready to give it away. This scrub is fun to make and is perfect for every vanilla junkie you know.

This salt scrub is unique because I mixed the salt with Vanilla Oleoresin to color the salt and allow a more complex vanilla scent to come through when the scrub was used. Even though the Vanilla Oleoresin is water soluble, after it has been mixed with the salt it will stay on the salt until the scrub is being used.
I measured the 2.7 pounds of salt into a mixing bowl for a stand mixer and then added 0.27 ounces of Vanilla Oleoresin to the salt. Now I could begin mixing the salt and Vanilla Oleoresin. This takes about 5 minutes to mix with a mixer or about 15 minutes to mix by hand. Once the salt and Vanilla Oleoresin has been completely mixed we can start making the scrub.
Weigh the liquid ingredients into the mixing container. With recipes that you weigh like this, I like to mix my liquid ingredients before I add the salt. Now, add the salt 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 16 oz Clear PET Deep Jar.
I love using Jojoba in various skin care products because of the light soothing feeling it can give to skin.
