How To: LisaLise's Herbal Shower Shaker Scrub

Today, I'm going to share a formula with you that is so easy peasy you can eyeball the amounts of the ingredients and still get it right.

We're going to make an exfoliating shower shaker scrub that can be made a zillion different ways.

I know you think this is an exaggerated amount, but I counted until I got to a million and there were still endless possibilities, so I made an educated estimate about the rest.

Complete with Skin Pampering Extras

Using a salt scrub in this manner is both exfoliating and stimulating for the skin. And speaking of playing around with grated cocoa butter - there's a fab use of this skin-loving ingredient that adds moisturizing action to the whole thing.

Are you ready to do this?

Well then, let's get busy!

Hi lise thank you so much for sharing this. I can't wait to try it out. Just wondered could we substitute the cocoa butter for any other butter like shea In the salt shaker recipe or is it you must have the cocoa because of it's hardness.
As always looking forward to your next blog.
Warm wishes to you

Hi Yasmin - I suppose you could use shea but it is going to be a little challenging to grate and add dry... although you might try and melt it and drizzle over the mixture then work it through by hand--- I say give it a go and let me know how it turns out! :D

I wonder if Mango Butter would work well in the mix.... It has a fairly hard dry consistency. I may have to try some today. ;D

Hey there unknown - I imagine mango butter would work well here. I'd suggest cooling it before grating or crumbling it thoroughly while very cold to get even small pieces. :D

Hi Lisa, what a novel idea. love it!, doe the moisture from the shower affect the scrub? thanks Donna

HI Donna - Thanks! Yes, the moisture will affect the scrub-- best not to leave it standing in the water. I usually get wet, turn off the water, then use the shaker and put it out of reach of the water before turning on the shower again.
