I set out to make a scrub that was simple, inexspensive,moderately mousturizing and "natural" without being gritty rough or just plain gross.
After all. Sugar strained through bones is "natural" but that is just gross.
I wanted something that could be dressed up or paired down. This concoction is simple to prepare,store, and use.
So attatched is the following recipe for a spa treat for everone and every budget:
"Rogue Rice Bowl Scrub"
For enough scrub to do your ENTIRE body use the following measurements:
"Rogue Rice Bowl Scrub"-total body recipe
1/2 cup dry rice (any kind) ground
3 tablespoons Sugar (I prefer raw/organic) For dry skin ~or~ Salt for oily skin
Enough floral water to make a paste: Floral water: 1 drop essential oil + 1 Tablespoon water
1 drop of glycerin (optional: for dry skin)
For enough for just hands and face:
Mix above dry ingredients together in sealable container
3 TBSP Dry mix (above)
1 TBSP floral water (glycerin already added)
I make the dry ingredients and wet ingredients and keep them in prett sealed jars. When its time to make my scrub I keep a bottle of floral water near the shower take a handful of dry stuff out and spray it with the floral water.
Another thing I have found my partner Chris doing (leave it to a man to be Macguyver) is taking a handful of dry mixing it with CONDITIONER (yes I said conditioner) and using it to shave.
I tried it, and it works like a dream.
So do something nice for yourself! Treat yourself to a Rogue Rice Bowl Scrub!
