This creamy, multi-colored scrub is made with Shealoe Butter, White Sugar, Jojoba Wax Beads, and a little Beeswax.  I made mine in Candy Cane colors, with  Peppermint Essential Oil, but it's very easy to modify.  Just change the color of beads and the fragrance to make a custom version. 

You can use a pastry bag, or a ziplock bag with a hole cut in the corner to pipe the scrub into your jars, making stripes or other cool patterns.

Basically, you melt the Beeswax, add the Shealoe, and then stir in the fragrance, beads, and sugar. You can find complete instructions on my blog:

Oh it's beautiful! How did you get the vertical stripes to stay in place while you filled the jar?

It's gorgeous, and looks super yummy. Wish I had a jar!  Smiley

That looks amazing.  I know it must smell great.  Thanks for sharing. I think the way you did the stripes is very creative.

It's actually really easy - I just tipped the jar on its side, then piped the scrub into the jar (like frosting on a cake). You can even pop the scrub in the fridge for a few minutes before piping.  That helps to firm it up a bit.

Thanks everybody! I'm always worried someone will take a spoon to one of my scrubs. LOL. I'm sure it will happen one day! But that person will be awfully disappointed when they taste it!  Shocked
