We all scream.......

for ice cream!
Whether you call it Neapolitan or....


Mmmm, looks good enough to eat

This Neapolitan exfoliating scrub is made with creamy shealoe butter, yummy scented fragrance oils, and super fine dendritic salt, sea salt or sugar. You can make this scrub in one solid color, or layer multiple colors for super cuteness! This recipe could be varied easily to create all kinds of delicious ice cream parlor inspired creations, like Orange Cream, Banana Split, or Mint Chocolate. Switch out the fragrance and the food color to create your own unique Ice Cream Scrub.

Neapolitan ice cream scrub

Ingredients (click links)
6 ounces Shealoe Butter (
1 1/2 cups Dendritic Salt (substitute with ultra fine sea salt or sugar)
1/2 teaspoon Milk Chocolate Fragrance Oil
1/2 teaspoon Strawberry Fragrance Oil
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Non-Browning Fragrance Oil
food coloring- Brown & Red

In a large mixing bowl combine the shealoe butter and salt or sugar. Shealoe is naturally soft, so you should be able to mix this without heating the butter. However, if it is necessary, you can heat the butter gently by warming the container in hot water. (Be careful not to let the water get inside the container though.) After the butter and Salt or sugar are fully mixed, split the mixture into three parts in three separate mixing bowls. Add one Fragrance Oil to each bowl, thoroughly mixing each into the mixture. Next, slowly add the brown food coloring to the milk chocolate scented batch of salt/sugar, combined small amounts of food coloring until it resemble milk chocolate ice cream. Repeat with the red food coloring adding it to the Strawberry scented batch of salt or sugar next. Leave the Vanilla scented batch uncolored. Once the batches are fully mixed they are ready to be scooped or spooned into containers .

This fine grained scrub makes a great body polish, but should not be used on the face. The Neapolitan ice cream scrub looks adorable packaged in a sundae parfait glass. Like most handmade skin care products, this scrub should be used up quickly, as it has not been formulated for long term storage.

A Dolly Mixx icecream sundae necklace would make a sweet hang tag.
Dolly has the most charming (online) shop. You'll enjoy taking a peek at her confections.

Neapolitan Pie

Grammys soap bakery has the most delightful selection of pie flavors:banana cream, Georgia peach, Oreo, just to name a few. You'll have to take a double take when you see how delicious they look.
I'm always looking for low cal gift options...these scrumptious slice of pie soaps are perfect.

A Sundae on any day.....

is a cool treat.

Imagine an ice cream parlor themed party with these sundaes as your favors.
