Ginger Lemon Salt Scrub
What you will need to make 4 jars of scrub:
3 cups of sea salt
1 1/2 cups Jojoba oil
30 drops Ginger (Zingiber officinale)
20 drops Lemon (Citrus limon)
Combine sea salt and jojoba. Stir well. Add more jojoba oil if desired. Then add in your essential oils. Stir well again. Scoop salt scrub into sterilized clean jars. Cap and label.
For this label: I cut an 8 /12 by 11 piece from a paper bag then ran it through my ink jet. The label looks like this. I was quite happy with it. I cut the label to size and then carefully put a piece of clear packing tape over it leaving room to attach the label to the jar.
Spice Breathing Space salve
- 1 ounce of beeswax
- 1 cup of jojoba oil
- 1 tsp. honey
Place the ingredients into the top of a double boiler. Gently heat until all the beeswax has melted. Stir well with a fork or spoon. I put the honey in as it imparts a beautiful honey aroma to the salve but the honey itself will not merge into the salve mixture. Honey is water soluble. I leave it as the bottom of the pan while carefully pouring out the salve mixture.
While the beeswax is melting with the oil and honey, prepare your jars. This recipe makes: 10 25ml jars and 2 50ml jars.
I first made a synergy of the following oils: (drops are approximate as I forgot to write them down)
20 drops Black pepper
10 drops Clove
20 drops Palmarosa
In each 25ml jar I put 20-25 drops of the synergy and for each 50ml jar 40-50 drops of the synergy.
After placing the essential oils in the jars, the salve was ready to pour. I filled each jar and placed the cap on each jar as it was done. Once I had poured all the jars, then I went back to secure the lids and shake each jar.
Let the salve harden in each jar. While this is happening its time to make labels. I made labels using microsoft word. It has a program for making labels so it was easy to make something simple.
Will add finishing touches and post pictures later. Enjoy. This is an incredible salt scrub and salve!!!! I love it!
