Ingredients:

11.25 oz. fine cosmetic sea salt
2.5 oz. sal butter
2.5 oz. cocoa butter
1 oz. cupuacu butter
.5 oz. sweet almond oil
.25 oz. fragrance oil, of choice

Instructions:

Using a digital scale, begin by weighing out the sal butter, cocoa butter and cupuacu butter into a large glass Pyrex measuring cup (or glass bowl). Heat in the microwave at 50% power until melted. (Alternately, you can also use a double boiler.)

Remove from heat. Weigh out the sweet almond oil and your skin safe fragrance oil of choice. Stir into the melted butters. (In warmer climates or areas that aren’t temperature controlled you should start with half the amount of sweet almond oil and adjust as necessary. If you prefer to use an essential oil for fragrance, use half the amount.)

In a separate container, weigh out the fine sea salt.

Slowly pour the sea salt into the melted oil and butters, mixing as you go until you’ve combined all of the salt with the liquid ingredients.

Pour the combined ingredients for this salt scrub bar recipe evenly into three cavities of a Crafters Choice™ Basic Round Silicone Soap Mold. Dust the tops of your salt scrub bars with pink Himalayan salt if desired.

Place your mold into the refrigerator until your salt scrub bars have fully solidified, then remove them from your mold.

If desired, you can decorate the tops of your salt scrub bars like I chose to. Simply press a soap stamp into mica, then tap the stamp onto the top of each of your salt scrub bars using a mallet. (You can find quality pre-made and custom soap stamps from Custom Soap Stamps on Etsy here.)

Your salt scrub bars are now ready for use or for gifting!
