By now most of us have harvested the bounty of our Summer gardens. Keep the feeling of summer all year long with these nutrient rich, exfoliating recipes, made with some of our favorite summer vegetables. Tomato Seed Oil is rich in lycopene, carotene, and other beneficial cartenoids. It is highly moisturizing, making it great for dry, winter skin. Cucumber Seed Oil is a refreshing, cooling, and conditioning oil, packed with fatty acids. Carrot Seed Oil is another skin loving ingredient. High in Beta Carotene, Vitamin A, and E, Carrot Oil can help to heal dry, chapped skin.
Garden Glory Salt Scrub
Makes about 6 ounces (by volume)
- 1/2 cup Pink Himalayan Pink Salt
- 1/4 cup Honey Granules
- 1 ounce Cucumber Seed Oil
- 1/2 ounce Tomato Seed Oil
- 1/2 ounce Carrot Seed Oil
- 20 - 45 drops Geranium Essential Oil
Combine the Honey Granules and Salt in a small mixing bowl, followed by the Vegetable Oils and Essential Oil. Mix well, then transfer to clean jars.
Garden Glory Exfoliating Cream Soap
Makes about 4 ounces (by volume)
Combine the Garden Glory Salt Scrub and Liquid Castile in a small mixing bowl, and stir together. At first, the two will not mix easily, but just keep working the mixture until it combines fully. Add the Essential Oil and mix again. If you'd like the soap to be a little looser, add more Liquid Castile.
Usage & Packaging
This super thick soap will not fit through a pump bottle. Instead, try using one of our PET Jars to package it. Scoop out a little at a time and scrub away!
