Emulisified Salt Scrub Recipe

Here is a different take on a salt scrub recipe from Allison B. Kontur of  Bath Body Supply .  This recipe appear's on Allison's Blog Design it Yourself Skincare.

You will need:

1 oz Stearic Acid - Vegetable TP
1.5 oz Emulsifying Wax NF
2.5 oz Almond Oil, Sweet USP
1.5 oz Jojoba Oil, Clear (Organic)
1.5 oz Olive Butter
12.5 oz Dead Sea Salt - Fine Grain
5 ml (1 tsp) Fragrance Oil (optional) - We used Paradise Fragrance Oil


Phase 1: In a double boiler over low heat melt stearic acid, emulsifying wax, olive butter, almond oil & jojoba oil until clear. Remove from heat.

Phase 2: Pour melted butters, oils & waxes over dead sea salt and stir to combine. Add optional fragrance and stir again to combine. Allow to sit overnight (alternately, you can cover and pop in a cooler until it sets).

Phase 3: When scrub has set, stir again and package in airtight containers.

Glad you posted this one! I've been trying out e. scrubs over and over again. Can't seem to make a recipe that I'm completely happy with. I'm going to try this one sometime this week. Fingers crossed.
