What Type of Scrub Should I Use?What Type of Scrub Should I Use?

What type of scrub should I use? There are many different ways to create a homemade scrub. So, it all depends on what you are looking to exfoliate. In tough, damaged areas you may want a more exfoliating agent. But, you are going to want a gentle exfoliant for sensitive areas, like the face. Further, there are many different kinds of herbs that you can include in your scrub recipes to tailor the scrub to match your needs. For example, you may want to use poppy seeds or salt for a foot scrub for feet with dry, callused skin. If you have less dead skin on your feet, however, then you may want to use sugar or another herb. Plus, there are scrubs that are emulsified and scrubs that are not.

What Type of Scrub Should I Use?: Emulsified vs Not Emulsified ScrubsWhat Type of Scrub Should I Use?: Emulsified vs Not Emulsified Scrubs

First of all, there are two main types of body scrubs. One type is called an emulsified scrub. This uses an emulsifying ingredient that combines the oils with the other ingredients in the recipe. So, there are no oils seeping out of the recipe. However, there is another type that is not emulsified. While the oils and scrubbing ingredient are still mixed together, the oils aren’t connected to the rest of the recipe. So, you may have to mix the scrub again sometimes as the oils will seep out of the loose mixture and make it more difficult to grab all the ingredients.

What Type of Scrub Should I Use: Emulsified Homemade Salt ScrubWhat Type of Scrub Should I Use?: Emulsified Homemade Salt Scrub

First, you can create some fantastic emulsified salt scrubs. The emulsified scrub blends the ingredients together to make sure that the oils and salt don’t separate. This will ensure that you don’t have oil collected on the top or the bottom of your salt mixture. Also, this scrub, due to the salt, is slightly more abrasive than sugar scrubs and can be used on areas of the body that have a lot of dry skin. So, anyone looking for a tough exfoliant will love this scrub. This scrub would create one of the best hand scrubs and a fantastic salt foot scrub! If you want a good salt scrub recipe, then the Margarita Salt Scrub Recipe would be perfect. This dead sea salt scrub recipe is amazing for exfoliation and is tough on dry, callused skin.

What Type of Scrub Should I Use: Emulsified Sugar ScrubWhat Type of Scrub Should I Use?: Emulsified Sugar Scrub

Another great way to create an emulsified scrub is with sugar! Again, the recipe includes an emulsifying agent to keep all the ingredients together. The Emulsified Beet Sugar Scrub Recipe perfectly blends oils, sugar, and beetroot powder to create a perfect emulsified scrub. Our Watermelon Emulsified Sugar Scrub Recipe is another great recipe that combines cosmetic oils and white sugar. Another added benefit of creating an emulsified sugar scrub is that you can create layers like we did to create a watermelon appearance in the jar.

What Type of Scrub Should I Use: Un-emulsified ScrubsWhat Type of Scrub Should I Use?: Not Emulsified Scrubs

Plus, you can create scrubs without an emulsifying agent. These scrubs have all the oils that nourish the skin and a strong exfoliator. The only difference is that all of these ingredients don’t contain an emulsifying agent. This means that even though everything is mixed, the oils aren’t bonded to the exfoliant. Our Citrus Peel Salt Scrub Recipe is a scrumptious salt scrub recipe with oils and powdered herbs that truly care for the skin. Also, the Himalayan Pink Salt Scrub Recipe combines lovely ingredients like nourishing oils and pink salt to create a fantastic scrub! Also, we have a more gentle scrub recipe, the Brown Sugar Scrub Recipe, that will care for your skin with lovely oils and feel less abrasive than a salt scrub.

Some are tougher exfoliants than salt and others are more gentle than sugar. So, using some of the Herbs and Spices available on the NG site can provide you with a great range of option for your scrubs!

What Type of Scrub Should I Use?: Homemade Scrubs for FaceWhat Type of Scrub Should I Use?: Homemade Scrubs for Face

Another great idea for homemade body scrubs is a recipe for a face scrub. If you create a face scrub recipe, then you need to make sure that you are aware of what shouldn’t be in it. Firstly, make sure that you don’t choose a tough exfoliant like salt. Instead, try brown sugar, Kaolin Clay, or lavender buds.  Also, be cautious with your scent. Since fragrance oils may irritate the skin, I would suggest choosing a fragrant herb or leaving it unscented. Also, be sure to include oils that won’t clog pores, like Argan Oil or Sweet Almond Oil.

What Type of Scrub Should I Use?: Why Use Natural Exfoliants?

Not only are these scrubs great for your body, but they are a better alternative for protecting the environment, too.
