I few people asked me to do a tutorial on the body scrub, so I stayed up last night getting it together!
Now, please keep in mind that these are the ingredients and measurement that I use. If you want to leave out of add something feel free! As far a fragrance, add whatever kind you like!!

plastic or glass bowl
wooden or plastic spoon
measuring cup
1 tbsp fragrance of your choice (I used Caramel Candied Apples for this one)
*if you choose not to use fragrance try adding something extra like Coffee grounds to achieve a natural smell!*
-  cup Epsom salt
cup Fine grain sea salt
cup Solar Salt (can omit if you like)
4 tbsp Dendritic Salt (helps hold fragrance)
4 tbsp Hawaiian Red Clay Sea Salt (purchased on eBay J)
2 tbsp cocoa butter
1 cup Soybean oil
cup of  Sweet Almond Oil
1 tbsp of Rice Bran Oil
1 tbsp of Jojoba Oil
1/2 tspn Vitamin E
1/4 teaspoon of ground apricot seeds (or what ever exfoliant tickles your fancy!)
Preservative Germaben II E (follow instructions but most will say 0.1-.5%)
(oils, color & fragrnace can be substituted to your liking and to avoid allergic reactions, if any)
*Also please remember that oils do not have to fancy nor high priced, for this is a wash off product! Oils can tend to be expensive so choose wisely!

You first want to make sure you have all of your ingredients ready to go!!

Melt down your 2 tbsp's of cocoa butter and your set!

Using either a glass or plastic bowl empty in all of your Salts first and mix good. (glass is better to avoid fragrance lingering in plastic)

Add your fragrance and additives (I use apricot grounds) and mix like crazy!!

Once mixed good add in your liquid (melted down) cocoa butter and mix some more!

Next combine your oils and begin to mix in. Also add your Preservative at this time. (If you add it and it does not disolve, stick in picrowave for a few seconds to disolve! Preservativesare a MUST, it kills off water germy's that happen while being used.)

What I do is add a few dashes at a time so I can see the salts soaking up the oils.

Once all the oils are in it *should* be smooth yet grainy. If you find that you have too much oil feel free to add more Salts or vic versa!!

When I am done my scrub i DO NOT like to have a lot of access oil so that is the reason for the great amount of salts! If you like oil to settle to the top do not add a lot of salt and if you do not like oil at the top add more salt!!

Wrap nicely, package and give as a gift!


* these are the measurements that I use for myself and it fills up about 4 8-9oz jars. So if this it used as a project, I suggest using smaller jars like 2-4ozs.
If you find that you have a little bit extra, then store away and use for yourself!! Thats what I do!!
This is for use on body and hands, NOT face.

Thanks heaps for the tute, I always like to try tutes from real people instead of random websites that you never really know what they are like Tongue. This sounds really delicious!

I want to put together some inexpensive bath and body kits for the ladies this Christmas so a variation on this scrub will be great, maybe different fragrances for each lady...
