Need a special little gift to give your Easter dinner hostess or for a special friend? I’ve created this adorable salt scrub with an Easter twist. Best of all? It’s fast and easy to make.
2 cups fine grain dead sea salt
3 tablespoons lotion base
3 tablespoons soap concentrate base
1 1/2 tablespoons Vitamin E oil
1 ounce Jojoba oil
2 ounce Sweet Almond oil
3 teaspoons Jojoba beads
1/4 oz. lettuce fragrance oil
Shredded loofah and Emerald Green labcolor to sprinkle on the top.
4 ounce tin container with clear top
So easy! Just mix everything except the loofah and Emerald Green labcolor together.
Spoon into your container.
To make the grass green loofah: Put some diluted labcolor (suggest 10 ml of Labcolor in 3 ounces of water) and the loofah in a seal top baggie and then mush them around until they are as green as you like. Ideally, you’ll want just enough liquid to color the loofah without making it sopping wet.
For an extra special touch, make some of our play dough soap and roll into little egg shapes. Next roll the little eggs in some iridescent shredded glitter and scatter across the top of the scrub.
PS – Did you recognize our little happy erasers in the scrub up top? Get your own Easter Bunnies here.
It’s adorable! I just love it!
Loofah is a natural exofoliator as well so it would scrub just as well as the salt. They could mix it into the mixture and use it that or they could scrape it (but it would be a waste) =)
This is adorable! One question (and pardon my ignorance because I have yet to make my first body scrub): if I give this as a gift, I would assume that when they use the scrub, they would just sweep aside the loofah part and just use the salt portion?
very cute final product. Those are very sweet erasers!!
Paula, Soap to lather. Lotion to moisture and bind. =)
That’s the cutest thing ever! Such a great idea!
Why the soap and lotion additive ? What does it add to the finished product ? Sorry – kind of new here.

I’m contantly amazed by the cute and creative projects you come up with!
i KNEW you would say that! dern!
you are right.
all right then, sage advice
Jennifer, That’s a great question. Preservatives in scrubs are always a tricky question when they are oil based but in this scrub, the lotion base does make the scrub not 100% oil based. The lotion base has preservative in it and that preservative, coupled with the salt, should keep the recipe mold free so long as best manufacturing practices are followed.
Aren’t classes fun? I love teaching. But, if it were me, in this instance, I’d definitely stick to things that you know and are easy for you to make if you’re teaching them. It’s not an ideal recipe for success to teach a class about something you’re not an expert (or at least really super knowledgeable in).
Whipped concoction for the class? I’d make a cream from scratch if it were me. That’s got a high “wow” factor.
There are a few openings left for the Soap Intensive weekend =) We’d love to have you.
A-M, that is over the top cute! I will definitely make some for my Easter hostess.
Do you have about 15 seconds to answer a question? I am thinking seriously about having another one of my “kitchen” classes…but this time for my lady friends. I would so love to make a whipped concoction with them. But since I have never even attempted this myself… I am thinking to ask the expert. I recently bought Donna Maria’s book from BB, but it is not, I think for beginners. Can you suggest a recipe? One that would delight friends and be a great kind of class/intro to my business?
Also, I am seriously trying to find a way to get to the Intensive weekend; are there any openings left?
Awesome project! Wouldn’t you want to add a preservative though, because of the lotion?
OMG, how fun and adorable! I didn’t know you could color your own loofah – how awesome!!
What a great project. Super fun!
This is so cute! I didn’t know that you could get shredded loufah.
Thanks for sharing.
This is super cute. I never would have thought of this one. I am so happy too as I actually have all the ingredients to make this.
