Did you know many ancient civilizations often used sand, salt, and ash along with a variety of seeds as well as numerous other types of abrasive substances to rid their skin of dirt and oil? Abrasives help to remove dead skin cells along with other impurities. Many spas, along with endless specialty shops, are boasting about the benefits of both salt and sugar scrubs. Here is another interesting little scrub that was created for the Muds & Scrubs class we had in 2001. Give it a try and let us know what you think.

Containers for packaging your new creation in
1. Weigh all dry ingredients and mix together.
2. Carefully weigh all oils and other liquids once all lumps have been removed and mixture is smooth.
3. Add your oils to dry mixture, along with any other liquids you might be using at this point. Mix well.
