Almond Shea Butter Body Scrub

Manicure in a Jar Lemons & Petals

This post is written by my 11 year old daughter. 

I was inspired by this scrub when I went to Sephora and saw the Loccitaine Almond Paste.  I just had to make it!  It smelled so delicious!  It smelled like cookies….yum!  So today I decided to make a moisturizing almond shea butter body scrub.  I really love how this smells like a cookie and it makes me want to eat it!  It smells so good.  And it leaves your skin feeling so smooth and soft.  This scrub is gentle enough for your body and face too and it’s especially awesome for your hands. It’s like a manicure in a jar!   Let’s get started 🙂

What you will need:

  • 1/2 cup raw shea butter
  • 1/3 cup carrier oil (I used avocado oil)
  • 1/4 tsp vitamin E oil
  • 1 cup almond meal
  • Almond extract and vanilla extract

Directions:

Melt the shea butter in a double boiler or microwave with the avocado oil. 

Once melted, add the vitamin E oil, the extracts and the almond meal.  Mix well.

Put into a jar or container and you’re good to go with your cookie smelling scrub!
