In a recent class we introduced the Glycerin Scrub Base – Paraben Free, and Medium Bath Salt then made some fantastic Salt Scrubs. The only thing I recommend after making these scrubs is actually using this fabulous stuff. I know so many of us Use two to three times a week for smooth and soft skin. My feet, legs and hands love this stuff!
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 did 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 a drop or two of color – if desired
Add seeds, fiber or luffa – if desired
Mixed well – be careful not to over mix, this base has soap and will make bubbles.
Fills one 16 fl oz Deep Jar with Size 89 Cap
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 made one for me and one for a friend.
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.
Thanks everyone for coming to class! I have enjoyed meeting you and showing you how easy and fun it can be to use the bases.
Looks like fun. I’m too far away to come visit, so love the blog and photos.
Sounds like a great project! I love how the label really “makes” the final presentation!!
I love that it’s made with soap, not just oils. Many sugar scrubs feel good for me at first, then I break out later- I’m wondering if it has to do with the oils. I’ll have to try this, thanks! 🙂
I love the idea of mixing everything in the bag and then piping it. Great tip!
What a fun looking class! And great gift idea, too.
I love these kind of projects. People think that you put alot of time and money into them, but we know the secret! 😉
