Jojoba Wax Beads really show their true colors when they are suspended in a salt scrub. Mixing colored beads to create new and unique shades of color is a lot of fun too. Above, you can see four different combinations that I have made. Before creating the scrub, I mixed different combinations of Jojoba Wax Beads in a small, white, condiment cup. When I found combinations that I liked, I would think of what the color reminded me of, and pick a scent. Luckily, I have the entire FromNatureWithLove.com line of fragrances to choose from. There are so many wonderful scents to choose from. If you decide to start blending the fragrances, you wind up with endless possibilities. What a treat! I really enjoy this recipe because it is so easy to personalize. Be creative, and let me know what you come up with. I’d love to see some pictures!

In a medium mixing bowl, combine salt and Jojoba Wax Beads. Once the beads are well dispersed, add the oil mixture. (Remember to stir the oil mixture well before adding it to your dry mixture.) Next, add your fragrance or essential oil. Stir well and transfer to a sterilized container.
This recipe will make a little more than 8 ounces of scrub (by volume). They look fabulous in clear containers. I recommend using either PET Jars to package these scrubs.
Mix the scrub well and scoop a small amount into a paper cup or some other small (shower-safe) container. Get in the shower and scrub away! I wouldn’t recommend using this on your face, but the rest of your body should be fine. After you are finished scrubbing, turn on the shower and rinse the salt and Jojoba Wax Beads away. The beads are a little tenacious, so I like to follow this scrub with my usual soapy shower routine.
