Do you love using body scrubs? This Whipped Shea Butter Body Scrub recipe from Soap Making Essentials is like most body butter receipes, but it has the addition of salt to make it good for exfoliation. And this bath and body product is meant for use IN the shower rather than after. Rub onto the skin and gently massage in with circular motions. Rinse off and pat dry with a towel.
To make this recipe you will need: 1/2 Cup Shea Butter; 1/3 Cup Carrier Oil (sweet almond, apricot kernel, avocado, hemp seed, hazelnut, camellia, evening primrose, borage, or olive oil infused with calendula or chamomile are all good choices); 1/8 tsp Rosemary Extract or Vitamin E oil (optional but will help to prolong the life of the oils); 1 tsp Corn Starch (optional...makes the butter feel less greasy); Essential or Fragrance oil (optional); 1/2 - 1 Cup sugar (other choices include salt, finely ground nuts, coffee grounds...anything that provides a gentle scrub)
