I researched a bit, and I took bits of what I learned and combined them to create a salt and sugar scrub, made with all common household items.
I realized that instead of buying $10-20 scrubs you could make it yourself! I had to spread my excitement and what's better than making an instructable!
Salt & sugar scrub is super easy and perfect for gifts! I hope you enjoy it and make lots of bath scrub to use!
In this instructable my units of measurements are spoonfuls. One spoonful is about one tablespoon, but it really doesn't matter.
Step 1: Ingredients:
-baking soda (A&H FTW)
-turbinado sugar (or brown sugar, both would be lovely)
-vanilla extract (or essential oils)
-plastic bag (clean jar is better, plastic bag is cheaper)
-sticker paper (totally not necessary, use tape and regular paper, 100% cheaper)
Step 2: Add Cane Sugar & Turbino Sugar:
2.) Then add 3 more spoonfuls of turbinado sugar (or brown sugar)
For this scrub sugar is the main ingredient. Sugar is lovely and skin softening.
Step 3: Add Salt & Baking Soda:
2.) Add a spoonful of baking soda: Baking soda makes your skin amazingly soft. It's great plain even but better in a scrub.
Step 4: Stirring your scrub:
(This step is actually fun, all the colors mix and it's pretty)
Step 5: Oil & Stirring:
2.) Keep adding 1/2 spoonfuls of oil and stirring until your scrub has the consistency of a slushie (slushie=oil is spread out and plentiful, but there isn't a pool of oil)
3.) Add about two drops of vanilla extract. You can replace the extract with cinnamon or any essential oils but I prefer a simple scent.
