This is absolutely the best hand and body scrub I have ever used, and now I have the recipe. And even better, I can personalize the scrub for you with your favorite fragrance or additives. And it’s vegan!
What makes this scrub so great?
•First, it’s an emulsifying scrub—which means I’ve added a wax that keeps all the oils from separating. So when you scoop a small amount out of the jar, it clings together and doesn’t run through your fingers—thus, no waste.
•Second, it’s made with wonderful butters and oils like shea butter, sweet almond, jojoba, and avocado oils. These are all light oils that let your skin breathe. And when these oils are combined with an abrasive like sea salt and additives like clays, they will remove dead skin and leave your skin feeling baby soft.
•Third, it’s not oily. Immediately after using this scrub your skin will feel soft, clean, and smooth. And you will keep this soft-skin feeling for days.
•Fourth, you can personalize your scrub with your favorite additives and fragrances. Either choose from my list or contact me regarding the availability of your favorite ingredient. If I can get it for you, I will.
•Fifth, each jar is made fresh for you. The oil base is made in small batches and stays in the refrigerator. When an order is placed, I use a portion of this base and add your ingredients to it. Because a 1% preservative is in the base, your scrub will last 9 months to a year—although you’ll use it much sooner than that!
Each scrub comes in a 2 ounce plastic jar, safe for the shower.

Here are the additives you can put in your body scrub. Please choose one additive. Just use the pull-down menu to include them in your order:
Activated charcoal-- combats pollutants that our skin comes into contact with on a daily basis, as well as draws out impurities that could potentially lead to premature signs of aging. It leaves your face feeling cool, soft, and clean.
Ground Coffee—Can be used to scrub away dead skin to reveal the new, healthy skin underneath. Exfoliating with coffee grounds improves circulation, leaving you with smooth, glowing skin. The caffeine from coffee grounds can also temporarily reduce the appearance of cellulite and give your skin a firmer appearance.
Poppy Seeds—for a little extra exfoliation, try poppy seeds. They also help relieve dry and itchy skin.
Shredded Loofah—Scrubs away dead skin to reveal healthy skin underneath.
Ground Oatmeal-- creates a barrier over the skin, making it a great additive for those with extra dry skin. It also helps to alleviate itchiness. Oatmeal is well known for its softening properties. Ground oatmeal in this mask will gently exfoliate and smooth your skin. If your skin is combination, prone to breakouts, clogs, dryness, flakes and/or redness, ground oatmeal is a great remedy. It will leave your skin soft and healthy.
Ground Rose Petals-- Rose has been used for centuries in skin care. Rose petals contain carotene, B group vitamins and vitamin K. The petals of this beautiful flower are not only soothing, but also contain a good amount of vitamin C. Rose petals will smooth, tone and moisturize dry, sensitive skin. Bacteria die within five minutes when contacted with fresh rose petals which makes rose a perfect medicine for fighting skin diseases. Fresh rose petals will help cure wounds and burns; they can also help in healing allergic itchy skin.
Oatmeal and Rose Petals combination –see above for individual ingredients. The combination provides extra exfoliation and a nice scent blend.
White Pumice--This powder does a very good job of exfoliating and evening out dull/dry skin, yet it doesn't feel rough or scratchy during the scrubbing.
