Foaming Hibiscus Sugar Scrub Clean and Sanitize

Before you begin, make sure that all your equipment and your work space is sanitized. This will prevent possible contamination from using dirty utensils or setting those utensils on a dirty counter top. Also, having your work space tidy will help you create this recipe.  Not only will all your equipment be close and ready to use, but there won’t be anything impeding your ability to work. Now, lets get started!

Foaming Hibiscus Sugar Scrub Making the Double Boiler

Also, you will want to know how to create the double boiler before we begin. If you already know how to create this melting device, then feel free to begin the recipe. However, those that aren’t sure how to put this together can read through this short step-by-step instruction on how to create a double boiler. We stress this importance because the double boiler is crucial to preventing your butters and oils from scorching.

First, get your small pot and your medium pot. The larger pot will contain the boiling water and the smaller pot will contain the ingredients that you intend to have melting. So, add about an inch of water to the medium pot to start. Then, place your smaller pot inside the medium pot. You will need to adjust the water level so that it is at least touching the bottom of the small pot, but not high enough to boil over into your melting ingredients. Finally, you can turn on the stove top and add your ingredients to the small pot.

First, you will need to melt the necessary ingredients for your scrub. Retrieve the scale and tare the weight of a bowl. Now, weigh out 136 grams of coconut oil 76, 113 grams of sweet almond oil, 62 grams of cocoa butter, 74 grams of shea butter, 50 grams of silky emulsifying wax, 20 grams of olive oil, and 12 grams of beeswax. After, you will be ready to melt your weighed ingredients. So, pour these ingredients into the small pot of your double boiler and set the stove to medium heat. Stir as the butters and wax melts and continue until everything has completely melted.

While you wait for your ingredients to melt, you can begin creating the Hibiscus Flower Powder paste. So, weigh out 8 grams of Hibiscus Flower Powder and 20 grams of Vegetable Glycerin into a second bowl. You will need to mix these ingredients together very well until everything has been combined to create a paste consistency. Then, set this bowl aside for later use.

Now, we will be adding a few more ingredients to the larger mixture, which is made of butters, oils, and wax. So, wait for the butters and wax to finish melting. After all the ingredients are melted, transfer these ingredients to a bowl. Now, allow your mixture to cool to 120 degrees Fahrenheit. This temperature is important as it prevents the preservative or other ingredients from burning off. Then, it is time for you to add 5 grams of optiphen preservative,5 grams of vitamin E oil, 121 grams of sodium cocoyl isethionate, and 20 grams of Hawaiian Sea Mist Fragrance Oil to your melted mixture. Be sure to mix thoroughly and incorporate all the added ingredients.

Then, slowly add the sugar to your mixture while you are whisking. This well incorporate all of the oils into the added sugar to create a well combined sugar scrub mixture.

Then, you can add the Hibiscus Flower Powder paste to the larger mixture. So, retrieve the paste that you have set aside in a previous step. Now, add the Hibiscus flower powder paste to your larger mixture. Again, make sure that you mix thoroughly to disperse the Hibiscus Flower Powder completely. However, incorporating this ingredient may be a bit more difficult as it is a thicker paste. While it may take more work, just keep mixing until the paste is dispersed evenly through the entire bowl.

We recommend using a spoon or spatula to scoop the mixture into your jars, but you can transfer the scrub anyway your want to do this.

Once all the sugar scrub mixture is put into the jars you can add the whole hibiscus flowers to the tops. Simply sprinkle a tiny bit on the top of each jar. Then, you can place the lids on the jars to either store or use the scrub. If you wish to use your foaming scrub, just scrub your hands under some warm, running water.

foaming sugar scrubFoaming Sugar Scrub Recipe

Natures Garden recently started carrying a new product; whipped soap base.  Needless to say, everyone has been super busy testing away with this new and fun ingredient.  We have created several foaming recipes using this new base, and every single one has been a success.  This new base is everything that we had hoped for and more.

When it came to the category of exfoliation with the whipped soap base, we of course thought of granulated white sugar first.  We wanted to make a foaming sugar scrub that would leave your skin silky smooth.  The gentle exfoliation that sugar would provide was perfect.  The rich creamy lather that the whipped base provides was also a sure fire winner too.  Our goal was that with a little work in creating this foaming sugar scrub recipe, we would be able to provide a great finished product that gently exfoliates and leaves your skin feeling moisturized and velvety smooth.

Here is how to make your very own scented foaming sugar scrub!

Ingredients & Equipment You’ll Need:
Whipped Soap Base
Any Body Safe Fragrance Oil (We selected Yeah for Yummy Fragrance Oil)
Any Fun Soap Colorant (Coloring is optional, but we felt coloring our foaming sugar scrub added an extra element of fun to the mix!)
Sugar
Scale
Bowl
Spoon
Spatula
Hand Held Mixer
Deep Mixing Bowl

Total Recipe Weights
454 grams of Whipped Soap Base
456 grams of Sugar
46 grams Yeah for YUMMY Fragrance Oil
2 drops Fun Soap Colorant -Tomato Red

The Steps

Clean & Sanitize your work area and all of your packaging materials. It is suggested that you wear gloves, protective clothing, and a hair net while preparing this recipe.

Step 1:  Using a scale, weigh out your whipped soap base and place into a bowl.  Set aside. 

Step 2:  In a separate bowl, weigh out your sugar. Then, add 46 grams of fragrance oil and 2 drops Fun Soap Colorant Tomato Red.  Using your spatula, fold the fragrance oil and soap colorant into the sugar until all of the fragrance oil and colorant has been incorporated into the sugar.  Set aside.

Step 3:
Next, using your hand held mixer, start to whip the whipped soap base.  You will notice the batter will start to appear like whipped frosting;  when you have reached this point, turn off the mixer and add the sugar mixture to the whipped soap base.

Step 4:  Once again with the spatula, begin to fold the sugar into the whipped soap base.  You want to thoroughly mix this to incorporate it well.

Step 5:
  Then, turn the mixer on and whip again.  Using your spatula, clean the sides of the bowl to ensure all of the mixture has colorant showing in it.  Continue to mix.

Step 6: When the mixture again looks like whipped frosting stop beating.  Set the bowl aside and allow it to set up for at least 5 minutes.

Step 7: Finally, using a spoon scoop the foaming bath scrub into your 4 oz clear PET jars and lid.
