    Introduction

    Winter Survival was one of the recipes I created for our most recent addition to the class schedule. Muds & Scrubs was a blast, what more can I say! Thanks to all the great ladies that definitely helped make this a success.

    1. Carefully weigh all dry ingredients into a bowl and remove all lumps.
    2. Any additional additives can be incorporated in at this time. For example Ground Apricot Seed, Ground Luffa.
    3. Carefully weigh all oils and other liquids once all lumps have been removed and mixture is smooth.

    5. Using a transfer pipette measure fragrances and continue blend, making sure all fragrance is evenly distributed through out the mixture.

    Comments

    I recommend using your scrubs only once per week. Remember too much of a good thing can still become irritating. This recipe makes about 8 fl oz of scrub.

Do you need an all vegetable replacement for beeswax? Soy wax may be your solution. Soy Wax has a melt point similar to beeswax.
