We recently added a very unique product to our line of high quality Carrier Oils at FromNatureWithLove.com. This new Oil is pressed from Cucumber Seeds, and has a very distinctive appearance and aroma. The crisp, fresh scent of Cucumber Oil is surprisingly potent, and provided me with a special challenge when it came to blending it with other scents. After experimenting with a few different Essential Oils, I found that Yuzu's light citrus aroma complimented the green scent of Cucumber Oil quite well. I added a few drops of Ylang Ylang to provide a little more richness to the overall aroma, then used the scrub to create a fantastic salt scrub. I hope you enjoy this recipe, it is already one of my personal favorites.
Yuzu Garden Salt Scrub
Makes about 4 ounces of scrub
Mix the Oils, Salt, and Organic Rosehip Powder together in a small mixing bowl. Add the Yuzu and Ylang Ylang Essential Oils and mix well.
Packaging & Usage
I prefer to package this scrub in PET Plastic Jars. These crystal clear jars show off the product well and are very durable. In a sealed container, this scrub should last several months, but after it is opened it can easily become contaminated during use. Keeping the jar away from water, and using clean utensils to scoop out the scrub will help to keep it from becoming contaminated. You can also package the scrub in single serving containers so that they will be used up completely after they opened.
