Foaming Salt Scrub Recipe
You will need to use a basic melt and pour soap base for my foaming salt scrub recipe. I specifically used the Crafter’s Choice basic white soap base. I can’t say that this will turn out the same using other soap bases, however, if you use an all natural soap base you’re likely to get a hard bar of soap rather than a salt scrub as the chemical composition of the soap bases is so different.
Using a digital scale begin by weighing out the soap base. Cut into chunks using a Chef’s knife and heat in either a double boiler or in a large glass Pyrex measuring cup in 30 second increments, stirring in between heatings, until melted.
Now weigh out the sal butter and melt. Stir the melted sal butter into the melted soap base.
Follow with safflower oil and the fragrance oil. (I used a cayenne caramel fragrance oil for my foaming salt scrub recipe.) Weigh out the amounts needed and stir into the melted ingredients until thoroughly incorporated.
Finally add your salts. Weigh out each of the salts and mix into the melted foaming salt scrub recipe ingredients until the mixture starts to solidify.
Pour/scoop your foaming salt scrub into an 8 oz. plastic (BPA free) low profile jar and top with a sprinkle of pink Himalayan salt if desired. (Or fill individual favor jars for party or wedding favors.) Allow the foaming salt scrub to completely set up. It will appear solid but will give when you scoop it out or press your finger into it. Now screw on your lid and label or decorate your container to suit. (I decorated my container with a strip of Love Kitchen Translucent Washi Sticker Tape I purchased from Happy Zakka Life on Etsy.
To use simply scoop out the desired amount and massage onto wet skin in the tub or shower. Your foaming salt scrub will have a light lather. Rinse off completely then pat dry.
