    I tried this based upon the reviews, and we LOVE it.... It was quick, easy, cheap, and it works. My family and I have made this using Vanilla, Almond, and a Lime Coconut to that beats anything on the market today. I wish I could give it more than 5 stars. Since I bake for a hobby, i was able to use extracts I already had and a box of table salt that cost an addtional .35 cents....

    I made this along with "Simple Sugar Scrub" and liked this one much better. It is less abrasive, and the oil lingers so that it feels a bit more moisturizing too, whereas the lingering oil in the sugar one was a bit sticky. Great way to use up leftover ginger, too! Thanks so much for sharing!

    I was out of fresh ginger and limes (and way to lazy to run to the store!) so I just used the salt and oil. I actually tweaked it a little, and used 1 cup of salt and 3/4 cup oil, with a splash of vanilla for the scent. It was wonderful! Just as good as any over-priced store-bought scrub. For my next batch I"ll be using the ginger and lime. Thanks a bunch!!

    As everyone before has said, this is fantastic! I only had coarse salt so used that, but had to pretty much triple the amount - and I should have blended it much longer than I did to compensate for the rougher texture! I used organic sweet almond oil because I felt like treating myself, and it was truly wonderful. Thanks! :-)
