This is the low-budget, I-Can-Barely-Cook-Let-Alone-Make-My-Own-Lotion version of the ever-popular shealoe rub and scrub. I was intimidated by some of the YouTube videos out there, and I didn't have all the supplies they mentioned, so I decided to try this out. I'll be honest, I don't typically measure most of the ingredients. It's way more fun to just use my eyes and my gut. I make fairly small quantities (my mixes last about two weeks), so I always have enough ingredients to make adjustments if necessary.
