Sugar scrubs are a favorite of mine; they are easy to make and sugar feels refreshing and nice on the skin. Using up the sugar in my pantry also prevents sugar temptation! 😉 To give this Wildflower Honey Sugar Scrub a little extra “oomph,” I added strawberry seeds. They are a mild tan color and are a little rougher than granulated sugar. Because of this, I recommend this scrub for the body and not for the face. As a bonus, we designed free downloadable labels for this scrub. The template includes labels for the Pure Honey Cold Process Soap and Beeswax Lotion Bars (coming later this week). Find them here.
A combination of jojoba oil and potassium cocoate are added to the dry ingredients for a soft, wet sand texture. Jojoba oil is a luxurious liquid wax that is produced from the seed of the jojoba shrub. Click here to learn more about jojoba oil. Potassium cocoate is the potassium salt of coconut fatty acid, and acts similar to liquid soap. In this scrub, it helps give a mild lather and leaves skin feeling clean rather than oily.
