- Easy to make Bath exfoliating scrubs...
/ Beauty Tip
Beautiful home-made gift.
You need only four ingredients to make these moisturizing exfoliants. The base can be made from either Epsom Salts or sugar, depending on whether you want a large or fine grain. Color the scrubs with shades that are in keeping with some of the scents you use -- pink with grapefruit, for example, or green with eucalyptus.
Makes about 2 1/3 cups.
Tools and Materials
2 cups Epsom salts or organic cane sugar [My treat do: pure Sea Salt ]
1 cup carrier oil [light olive, sunflower or nut oil][My treat do: Castor, Coconut or Hazelnut oil]
8 drops essential oil(s)
1 drop food coloring
Special equipment: plastic pipette [or dropper], canning jars
1. Stir together Epsom salts or sugar and carrier oil in a bowl, mixing well.
2. Using pipette, add essential oil, 1 drop at a time. Add food coloring, and stir until color is even throughout. Spoon into canning jars.
3. Download clip-art labels, enlarging or reducing to fit top of canning jar if necessary. Print onto ink-jet bumper-sticker paper (which is designed to withstand water). Cut out the labels, and affix to clean jars.
With their flip-top lids and gaskets for sealing, canning jars have a clean look and also keep any oil in the scrub from leaking. Decorate the jars with labels, and tie a pretty spoon or a bath sponge to the lid with waxed twine.
