Shea Sugar Scrub Recipe

It's almost bikini season and that means time to treat those dry, flaky trouble spots before you have to bare your beach-baby body. Sugar scrubs are ideal for taming dry winter skin or even as a pre-epilating treatment. The addition of calendula oil in this formula helps tame post-epilating troublespots too!

You will need:
4 oz Shea Olein (Liquid Shea Butter)
2 oz Calendula Oil, Infusion (Organic)
6 oz Organic Cane Sugar
5 ml (1 tsp) Pomegranate Pucker Flavor Fragrance Oil
2.5 ml (1/2 tsp) Phenonip (Preservative)

Phase 1: In a double boiler over low heat, melt shea olein until liquified and remove from heat. (In warmer summer months, you may omit this step as the olein will be liquid at warmer ambient temperatures).

Phase 2: Add Calendula Infusion to the melted shea olein and mix well to combine. Pour liquid oils over the organic cane sugar and stir well to combine. Add preservative and then fragrance oil, blending thoroughly for each ingredient.

Phase 3: Spoon into your choice of containers/packaging.
