Apricot Kernel Body Scrub
2 oz citrus blend or orange blossom floral water
1.5 oz ground apricot kernel
1 oz melt and pour glycerine soap
1 oz aloe vera gel
1 oz rice bran oil (or other light weight oil suitable for use on the face)
Orange and Sandalwood Essential oils
1) In a double boiler melt the soap. 2) Once thoroughly
melted, add the aloe vera gel and safflower oil. 3) Remove
from heat and stir in the floral water, a dropper of sandalwood
oil and two droppers of orange essential oil. 4) Mix thoroughly
and then stir in the ground apricot kernel. 5) Stiring frequently,
allow the mixture to cool. Add more essential oil and floral
water until the desired scent and consistency is achieved.
Typically the scrub is slightly more thin than creamy peanut
butter. 6) Scrape the scrub into glass containers and seal
for a day or two. The ingredients will blend more thoroughly
and fragrance will stablilize into a nutty, woody and vanilla
scent. 7) Instructions for use: place a small dab in the palm
of your hand, add water and rub into a lathery paste. Massage
the lather onto face or other areas and rinse with warm water.
The gentle glycerine soap cleanses, the aloe heals, safflower
oil moisturizes and apricot kernel exfoliates, leaving the
skin restored after each use.
