Recipe type: Scrub
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: Four 8 oz. jars
This Turmeric and Ginger Scrub smells fresh and leaves skin feeling smooth.
  • Four Short 8 oz. Plastic Bail Jars
  • 30 oz. Sugar
  • 2 tsp. Turmeric Powder
  • 2 oz. Olive Oil
  • 2 oz. Natural Castile Liquid Soap Base
  • 0.6 oz. Ginger Essential Oil
  • 0.3 oz. Optiphen
  1. In a small, essential oil-safe container, mix the olive oil, Natural Castile Liquid Soap Base, ginger essential oil, and Optiphen. Stir to thoroughly mix the ingredients and set the container aside. NOTE ABOUT PRESERVATIVES: Although this scrub doesn’t contain water, it will likely get splashed in during use. The extra water may cause bacteria and mold to grow. We added a preservative to be extra careful, but it is optional. Read more in the Talk It Out Tuesday: Preservatives post.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the sugar and turmeric powder. Stir them together to fully combine and get rid of any chunks.
  3. Pour the oil mixture into the sugar. Use your hands or a spatula to thoroughly mix.
  4. Transfer the mixture into the jars. To use, apply to wet skin, scrub in circular motions, and rinse off. Enjoy!
