Exfoliating Salt Scrub Bar Recipe

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen

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!

To use simply massage your salt scrub bar onto wet skin in the shower after bathing. Then rinse and pat dry. Be sure to store your salt scrub bar in a cool, dry location between uses.

Moisturizing Coffee Scrub Recipe with Non-Comedogenic Ingredients

Learn how to make your own homemade moisturizing coffee scrub recipe that won't clog pores! Plus alternative ingredients you can use that have a low comedogenic rating.

Learn how to make your own homemade moisturizing coffee scrub recipe that won’t clog pores as well as about alternative non-comedogenic ingredients you can substitute. In addition to this moisturizing coffee scrub recipe, I’ve also provided two versions of printable labels you can use for your finished coffee scrubs so can give them as homemade gifts!

You may recall my previous recipe for making an orange and coconut scented coffee scrub recipe without coconut oil. Within the content of that blog post, I explained why you don’t want to use coconut oil in your body scrubs. Coconut oil has a fairly high comedogenic rating of 4. This means that it can clog pores and cause acne when used. So I crafted a moisturizing coffee scrub recipe that used sweet almond oil in lieu of coconut oil. Sweet almond oil has a comedogenic rating of 2, which is moderately low, and contains essential fatty acids as well as vitamins A and E. It’s also an effective emollient for moisturizing and is easily absorbed by the skin as well.

However, there are many many other oils and butters you can use in place of both coconut oil and sweet almond oil as well that have a comedogenic rating of 0 or 1. Ideally you want your coffee scrub ingredients to have a comedogenic rating of 0, meaning it won’t clog pores at all. This is especially true if you have acne prone skin. Both mango butter and shea butter have a comedogenic rating of 0. Therefore I chose to use mango butter in my moisturizing coffee scrub recipe. (Alternately, you can substitute the mango butter with shea butter.)

In addition to the mango butter in my moisturizing coffee scrub recipe, I also used unscented liquid Castile soap to help aid in washing everything off at the end of your shower, while still leaving your skin moisturized and soft.

(Did you know that the PH of both cold process and melt and pour soap prohibits the growth of mold and bacteria growth in your soaps? Liquid soap doesn’t need a preservative either, however, if you’re introducing water into the soap during storage – such as in a scrub situation – a preservative won’t hurt. You can learn more about preservatives within this article at Soap Queen blog here.)

Learn how to make your own homemade moisturizing coffee scrub recipe that won't clog pores! Plus alternative ingredients you can use that have a low comedogenic rating. Plus how to make your own "foaming" coffee scrub recipe and printable labels for your finished coffee scrubs!

If you find the mango (or shea butter) makes this scrub difficult to wash off you or your tub – FYI you can get rid of stains in a snap with a smidge of Dawn dish detergent – then you can substitute the mango butter with liquid Castile soap. Or, to keep the extra moisturizing properties of this coffee scrub recipe, you can simply substitute the mango butter with another carrier oil.

Carrier oils with a comedogenic rating of 0 – meaning they are non-comedogenic and won’t clog pores at all – are argan oil, hemp seed oil, sunflower oil and safflower oil.  Aloe vera gel also has a 0 comedogenic rating, though if you’re using it in your coffee scrub, then you’ll definitely need to add a preservative.

Carrier oils with a comedogenic rating of 1, which is considered low, include emu oil, neem oil, pomegranate seed oil, rosehip seed oil, and sea buckthorn oil.

Neem oil, while a fabulous carrier oil, has a strong nutty, garlic like odor. So if you choose to use neem oil in your coffee scrub, then use it as only a small portion of the recipe with another carrier oil making up the bulk. Your fragrance would then be able cover up the smell of the neem oil.

The same would go for sea buckthorn oil. While sea buckthorn oil doesn’t have an offensive odor, it’s likely to dye your skin orange when used in high concentrations. It’s also a lot more expensive, so you’ll want to use this one sparingly in conjunction with another carrier oil making up the bulk of the recipe.

And finally, carrier oils with a comedogenic rating of 2, or a moderately low chance of clogging pores, include sweet almond oil (previously mentioned), apricot kernel oil, avocado oil, borage oil, baobab oil, evening primrose oil, grapeseed oil, hazelnut oil, jojoba oil, peach kernel oil, pumpkin seed oil, sesame oil and tamanu oil.

Following you’ll find my moisturizing coffee scrub recipe with mango butter. But feel free to make substitutions as desired with your carrier oil(s) of choice for the mango butter and liquid Castile soap.

Moisturizing Coffee Scrub Recipe with Mango Butter

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen

Ingredients:

4.5 oz. coffee beans, ground
1.25 oz. Epsom salt
1 oz. pink Himalayan salt, fine ground
2 oz. white sugar
.75 oz. mango butter
2.25 oz. unscented liquid Castile soap
.35 oz. cardamon mocha fragrance oil, or similar
.25 oz. blood orange essential oil

Instructions:

Using a digital scale, weigh out the ground coffee, salt and sugar. Combine in a glass bowl or large glass Pyrex measuring cup.

Mix the dry ingredients together with a fork to ensure even distribution.

Now weigh out the mango butter and place in a glass Pyrex measuring cup. Heat at 50% power in the microwave until melted. Alternately, you can also melt the mango butter in a double boiler.

Next, weigh out the Castile soap, fragrance oil and essential oil. Stir into the melted mango butter and mix well to combine all the ingredients.

Spoon the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix well, using a fork to whisk all of the ingredients – wet and dry – together until they are combined thoroughly.

Now spoon your moisturizing coffee scrub into two clear plastic 8 oz. low profile jars. Alternately, you can also use two 8 oz. High Barrier Kraft Paper Stand up Zipper Pouch Bags. You can also use traditional pantry jars, which are classic wide-mouth, clear glass jars with a rubber gasket seal and easy-to-use clamp down lid.

If you’d like to add my moisturizing mango butter coffee scrub labels (pictured) you can download the PDF for these printable labels here. Print the PDF file onto a full size white label sheet. (I got my labels from WorldLabel.) Cut out the labels, remove the backing and adhere to the front of your containers.

DIY this homemade truffle buff recipe for an exfoliating in the shower body butter scrub that leaves your skin extraordinarily soft!

Learn how to DIY this homemade truffle buff recipe for an exfoliating in the shower body butter scrub that leaves your skin extraordinarily soft!

This truffle buff recipe was created by Nadia Mansour, the former owner of a successful small business called, Ouish®, for which she created high end and all natural skincare products. Since then, however, Nadia has decided to take a break from the small business world and share her homemade skincare recipes instead on her new Facebook blog, The Nadia Effect. The Nadia Effect includes not only skincare recipes, but also DIY videos for making your own natural skincare products and even dessert recipes for baking up treats like her Hazelnut Mocha Cookies. I absolutely LOVE her page and my hope is that you’ll become a fan of hers  as well.

You’ll find Nadia’s truffle buff recipe below. It is, of course, re-printed with her permission.

DIY this homemade truffle buff recipe for an exfoliating in the shower body butter scrub that leaves your skin extraordinarily soft!

Homemade Truffle Buff Recipe

© Nadia Mansour

Ingredients:

15 oz. kokum butter
15 oz. shea butter
3 oz. rice, ground
3 oz. almonds, ground
3 oz. adzuki beans, ground
.78 oz. (2%) skin safe fragrance, of choice

Instructions:

You’ll need a digital scale to weigh all of your ingredients.

Begin by weighing out the kokum and shea butter. Combine in a double boiler and melt the butters over low heat.

Once the butters have melted, remove from heat and pour into a clean bowl. Set aside.

Next, weigh out the dry ingredients separately.

Using a food processor grind the rice, almonds and adzuki  beans, one at a time, to a medium/fine texture. Don’t over process these ingredients as they will act as your exfoliants.

Weigh out the fragrance oil you’ve chosen to use for this truffle buff recipe. (Need fragrance oil suggestions? One of the best selling fragrance oils Nadia used in her products was the Chicks Dig It Fragrance Oil from Just Scent.)

Now add the ground dry ingredients and fragrance oil to the melted butter mixture. Stir the mixture thoroughly to combine then place in your refrigerator.

Every 5-10 minutes, take the bowl out of the fridge and give it a stir. Then pop the mixture back into the fridge and repeat the process. Be patient.

Keep repeating this process until the mixture starts to look opaque and most of the exfoliants start to suspend in the mixture. Once you get to that stage, work quickly and immediately pour the truffle buff  mixture into the cavities of a silicone mold of your choosing. (I recommend placing the mold on a cutting board before your fill them so they are easier to transport.)

Don’t worry if you waited too long to pour your truffle buff into the molds. If you realize it’s gone past the stage where it starts to turn opaque and the mixture has hardened, simply it into the microwave and melt it slightly. Re-mix and try again.

Once you’ve poured the melted truffle buff mixture into your mold, place the mold into your refrigerator until your bars have hardened.

Once hardened, simply remove your truffle buffs from the mold. Decorate the tops if desired. You can use regular dark chocolate to add an icing drizzle or even dark cocoa butter wafers.

Wrap your truffle buff bars in foodservice film and label as desired for gifting or until use.

Side Notes:

Nadia does not recommend adding colorants to her truffle buff recipe. Her experience has shown that they do not color the mixture well and are likely to leave color on your skin when used.

In addition, as this truffle buff recipe does not contain a preservative, it is essential that you follow proper storage guidelines. When the bar is not in use, keep it out of the shower and away from steam on an elevated plate, such as a soap dish, that will allow air to flow above and below the product. It needs to be kept dry between uses. However, if you’d like to use a preservative, be sure to follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for the preservative you choose. Even with a preservative, however, it is highly recommend that you still follow the previously mentioned storage guidelines.

How to Use:

Use your truffle buff in the shower with warm-hot water running on your skin by massaging the truffle buff bar over your body in circular motions. The warm-hot water, along with your body temperature, will help to melt the truffle buff bar as you use it. Once completed, gently wash off any residue and pat skin dry with a towel to reveal your softest ever skin.

This Lush inspired massage bar recipe is so easy to make and only requires a few simple ingredients. Inspired by Lush's Wiccy Magic Muscles Massage Bar, this massage bar recipe is made using a base of shea and cocoa butters, massaging organic Adzuki beans and a combination of cinnamon and peppermint essential oils for a warm, tingly sensation that helps to ease and soothe sore muscles.

DIY Coffee Scrub Benefits

So what are the benefits of a DIY coffee scrub? Coffee scrubs are often touted as being able to tackle cellulite and stretch marks. However, this easy DIY coffee scrub offers many other additional natural skin care benefits – especially for aging or maturing skin. Follow of some of the coffee scrub benefits you’ll experience through daily use.

  • Exfoliates skin to remove dead skin cells.
  • Smooths skin so it looks & feels more youthful.
  • Brightens dull skin to give it a healthy looking glow.
  • Fights the visible signs of aging.
  • Helps to prevent acne.
  • Reduces the appearance of cellulite and stretch marks.
  • Targets and fights inflammation that can make skin look puffy.

That all sounds pretty great, right? It really is. I love the difference adding a coffee scrub recipe to my daily beauty regimen has made. Plus they are so easy to whip together. However, unlike many of the DIY coffee scrub recipes you see on the internet, mine is different. I formulate my coffee scrub recipe without coconut oil – and for a very important reason.

Learn about coffee scrub benefits plus how to make the BEST DIY coffee scrub recipe for cellulite, stretch marks and anti-aging skin care. This DIY coffee scrub recipe without coconut oil a super easy beauty hack to get glowing skin and reduce puffiness caused by inflammation.

Why make a DIY coffee scrub without coconut oil?

As coconut oil has a fairly high comedogenic rating of 4 – meaning it can clog pores and cause acne when used – I chose to create a DIY coffee scrub recipe without coconut oil. In lieu of coconut oil I used sweet almond oil. Sweet almond oil has a comedogenic rating of 2, which is moderately low, and contains essential fatty acids as well as vitamins A and E. So not only will it not cause acne, it’s also an effective emollient for moisturizing skin. Plus, sweet almond oil is quickly and easily absorbed by the skin.

Benefits of sweet orange oil in a DIY coffee scrub.

In addition to swapping out the coconut oil in my DIY coffee scrub recipe, I also chose to use blood orange essential oil. I chose this natural essential oil for several reasons. Not only does sweet orange essential oil offer uplifting aromatherapeutic benefits, it also has anti-inflammatory skin care properties. And it has been proven effective at preventing acne and other dermatitis related issues. It can also aid in clearing up existing acne breakouts and further promote healing. So skin looks healthy and feels amazing.

However, it is important keep in mind that any citrus essential oil, including blood orange essential oil, can increase photosensitivity. So when using this DIY coffee scrub, you will need to take proper precautions against sun exposure. And, as with any essential oil, you should consult a physician before use if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

Additional ingredients in my DIY coffee scrub.

I have also included a few optional ingredients in my DIY coffee body scrub recipe. The fragrance oil is, of course, optional. It does smell wonderful and summery blended with the blood orange essential oil. However, you can choose to omit it entirely. Or simply use an alternate fragrance oil that blends nicely with orange. I also added extra caffeine to my scrub for its purported anti-aging benefits (though research is mixed) along with its anti-inflammatory properties and naturally occurring antioxidants. The caffeine also further aids in reducing inflammation which in turn can help with puffy skin. In addition, I also added a bit of steam distilled coffee oil to give my DIY coffee scrub recipe more of an underlying coffee scent.

Activated Charcoal Detox Mask Recipe

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen

Ingredients:

2.5 oz. kaolin (white cosmetic) clay
.15 oz. sea salt, fine ground
.1 oz. pink Himalayan (mineral) salt or Celtic sea (mineral blend) salt, fine ground
.1 oz. hardwood activated charcoal powder
.05 oz. calendula flower powder

Instructions:

Using a digital scale, weigh out all the ingredients and combine in a glass bowl. Mix well to combine.

Pour the activated charcoal detox mask into one 8 oz. jar. I specifically used a clear plastic 8 oz. low profile jar and a 200 mL cosmetic style jar from Infinity Jars for this project. (My activated charcoal detox mask recipe fills one 8 oz. container. To fill additional jars, double the recipe as needed.) Alternately, you can fill two 4 oz. jars with this recipe. I also like the 4 oz. glass salve jars for this recipe.

To use your activated charcoal detox mask, simply combine 1 Tablespoon of the mask with 1/2 Tablespoon of water in your hand to form a paste. Then massage the mask onto your skin in a circular motion. Rinse the mask off with warm water once it has dried.

Alternately, rather than mixing your mask with water, you can also mix your mask with aloe vera juice, plain Greek yogurt or rosehip seed oil to suit your skin’s individual needs.

Side Notes:

For more sensitive skin, reduce the amount of salt to no more than .2 oz. total. Additionally, if you have calendula petals, you can simply run them through a coffee grinder to create a powder.

Additionally, while clariSEA’s Deep Pore Detox Activated Charcoal Exfoliating Mask contains bamboo activated charcoal powder, I chose to use hardwood activated charcoal powder from Rocky Mountain Essentials. It’s both made and packaged in the USA and works well for detoxification and use as an ingredient in high end cosmetic products.

Free Printable Labels.

You can download the free printable activated charcoal mask labels for this recipe here. For the clear plastic low profile jar, I printed my labels onto a full size clear gloss inkjet label sheet. For the beautiful, deep ultraviolet (these jars appear black) light proof jar, I printed my labels onto a full size white label sheet. I acquired both types of my label sheets from WorldLabel who sells quality labels in bulk at reasonable prices.
