I've been making a ton of these bright colored slat scrubs lately and wanted to share.


They look adorable in a clear plastic jar, very reminiscent of slushies.  Grin
It is basically a combination of Salt, Oil, Polysorbate 20, and Jojoba Wax Beads, but I posted a complete recipe on my blog:
http://www.naturalbeautyworkshop.com/my_weblog/2007/09/jojoba-salt-scr.html

One thing to note: Adding Polysorbate 20 or a liquid soap to this recipe is important. Otherwise the beads tend to stick to your skin after scrubbing. Pretty, but pesky!

Yup. I made a blend to match each color. The orange one is "Tequila Sunrise", a mix of orange and cherry. The red on is scented with Raspberry Truffles. The blue is scented with a mix of Moroccan Mint Tea and Vanilla.  Cheesy

Those are awesome, everyone I know is crazy about those scrubs from bath and body works and spa escape.  Are they similar?

Thanks! I love scrubs, and I also have incredibly sensitive skin, so this will save my life! Or at least, my epidermis.

I'm not familiar with the Spa Escape Scrubs, but I do remember seeing a line of scrubs at Bath and Body Works a while ago that had Jojoba Beads in them.  Cheesy

I've got some of the Spa Escapes scrub, but it's not very "scrubby." it's more like one of those that's mosly gel, with some scrub elements to it. Do you think I could just add sugar to this and make it scrubbier?

Actually, these scrubs are pretty scrubby already.  They don't have a gel like consistency, so they must be different than the spa escape scrubs.  BUt, you could certainly add sugar instead of salt when you make the recipe. White sugar would look really pretty in this scrub!

I was just wondering if instead of a salt scrub it could be a sugar scrub?

Sure! I would use a really fine grain sugar, like refined white sugar, or organic fine grain sugar.
