DIY Scrub Kit

As many of you know I attend many Craft Shows in my area.  I always walk around and size up other vendors.


What I keep seeing are people offering salt and sugar scrubs at scandalous prices for them; I saw one booth selling 10oz jar for $15! WOW!  I looked at my local store for the oils and sugar/salt and you can get each for under $4 for 4 POUNDS!


What a MARKUP!


I read the ingredients and they have FRAGRANCE OILS (which are  also known as aroma oils, aromatic oils, and flavor oils, are blended synthetic aroma compounds or natural essential oils that are diluted with a carrier like propylene glycol, vegetable oil, phthalates, or mineral oil.)


For those with allergies or sensitivities these are potentially dangerous.


I've come up with a wonderful solution for everyone who wants to try a scrub but cannot use anything with artificial ingredients and additives!


I came up with the idea of making YOUR OWN scrub!  You can do it yourself, with your children, your friends or give as gifts!  And YOU know what is IN your products!


Each jar makes half a cup in which YOU add your own salt or sugar.  So YOU know what is in your scrub!  You can use table salt (not recommended), dead sea salt, sea salt, Kosher salt (best) or Turbinado or Raw Sugar.


You than add your own OIL; which could be coconut, EVOO, sweet almond or any other oil you prefer.  I divide the butter into fourths and can get FOUR uses out of each kit!


An 8oz screw top jar (every time I use flip-top they always rust!)

5ML Essential Oil (exceptions)

1oz Organic Butter

Herbal of Choice (no clays)
OR

You can make your own for the SAME price.

 

When you place your order type in what you want:

How to scrub your dead skin- know from dermatologist

~~~~~~~~~

Salt v Sugar Scrubs

Salt and sugar scrubs both naturally dissolve while you’re using them, not to mention that most of the nut shell exfoliates that you buy at the grocery store are loaded with parabens and other things you probably don’t want to be absorbing through your skin.

Salt Scrubs

Do not use table salt is absolutely useless.  Sea salt helps draw toxins from your body and can act as an anti-inflammatory if you suffer from sore muscles, dead sea salt is the best.

Because the edges of sea salt granules are relatively sharp, these scrubs should be reserved for the dryer areas of your body – Your elbows, heels, legs, knuckles, etc.


Sugar Scrubs

Sugar scrubs can be made with table sugar as well as with unrefined sugar.

Unrefined cane sugar is slightly more abrasive than table sugar, but it’s still not as irritating to your skin as a salt scrub can be.  It should be avoided on your face (especially if you have sensitive skin).


How Often Should You Use Them?

Again – It really depends. A sugar scrub can be used two or three times a week if you’d like since it’s not very abrasive, but you should stick to using a salt scrub no more than once a week to avoid irritating your skin.

Powdered Sugar

Use powdered sugar to make an incredible lip scrub that’s incredibly gentle.

Table Sugar

Table sugar granules are rounder which makes them perfect for use on the face as well as other sensitive areas on your body. It makes a great mild scrub.

Brown Sugar

Simply mix equal parts of the natural oil of your choice and brown sugar, add a drop or two of vanilla extract and enjoy.

Salt

Kosher/Sea Salt/Dead Sea Salt are excellent options. They are also great on your armpits especially during summer with deodorant, sunscreen and shaving. It helps prepare the area for shaving too!
