Body Scrub & Foot Scrub

Its been a while since my last blog. Having a full time job which takes almost 2.5 hours of travelling each day, 7am starts and a busy family life, seem to take up allot of my day.  The spare time i do have i spend doing research on the net, publicising my products, and other soap activities like packaging and trying new recipes.

Today i want to share with you some homemade body scrubs i have made for various members of the family and close friends.  
The first is for my older sister who lives in Birmingham.  This body scrub contains both fine and coarse sea salt, i have added poppy seeds which look absolutely amazing nestled into the white salt.  This scrub has been scented with ylang ylang & grapefruit essential oils which is a lovely feminine scent yet not too floral like rose or lavender (she hates both rose and lavender...)

For my youngest sister who's 17 i have made a wonderfully yummy Mocha Body Scrub, it is also a firm favourite of my sister in law who cant get enough of the mocha scent.  This is a brown sugar scrub with ground coffee added to give a rich dark brown colour and it's scented with vanilla essential oil.  Both sister and sister in law are coffee MAD!!!

Lastly i have made a foot scrub for a friend who Really Really Really needs help with dry chapped feet.  This scrub is made from fine and ground sea salt, and has dried rosemary added.  Peppermint and rosemary essential oils have been added since they are both known for their healing properties and peppermint gives a cooling effect to tired feet.
