I use essential oils in my Organic Sugar Scrubs, as most Sugar Scrub manufacturers do. I am small time compared to most of them, of course.
Each batch is mixed by me and my wooden spoon or blender depending on which scrub I'm making. I get all my essential oils and organic ingredients from the Amish Country in Scottsville, KY unless I'm using herbs or flowers I've grown in our organic gardens. From Organic Whole Oatmeal, sugar, and essential oils to mint, lavender, and rose plants. Particularly, when it comes to essential oils, I use Peppermint, lavender, Rosemary, Orange, Rose, Eucalyptus, Spearmint, and Lemon (or Fresh Lemon Juice depending on the scrub).
I have recipes in the works than include using Ylang Ylang and Geranium, as well. I use Clove in my Diabetic Pain Relief Salve. Essentials are an integral ingredient in many skincare recipes found online and from big name brands. Leave me a comment and let me know what you'd like to see me make! All righty y'all. On to the essentials (oils, that is)!
