Wine Sugar Scrub RecipeWine Sugar Scrub Recipe

I’m sure by now you, like me, have heard about the health benefits of drinking a glass of red wine each day. Is it is true?  I sure hope so!  There is nothing better than pouring a glass of red wine at the end of a long day.  While I don’t drink wine on everyday, in recent years I have come to realize that I actually prefer wine to other adult beverages.  In the past we have used wine in cold process soap recipes.  Personally, I find it fascinating to incorporate foods or beverages into soap.  I love making wine soap!  It is one of my favorite ways to make soap.  So, with that in mind, I thought, I wonder if it would work in a scrub.  Yes, yes it did.  This is quite possibly my favorite sugar scrub recipe I have made to date!  So, our next recipe is for all of our wine lovers out there.  We have created a wine sugar scrub recipe using real red wine.  I hope that you love it just as much as I do.  As an added bonus we have added a little diamond dust mica, giving this scrub, and your body just a slight shimmer.  What woman doesn’t love wine and diamonds!

 

Wine Sugar Scrub Recipe Ingredients From Natures Garden

Wine Sugar Scrub Recipe Other Ingredients Needed

Mixing Bowls – You will need two of these.
Rubber Spatula
Mixing Spoon
Stove
Pots – These will be used for our double boiler step.
White granulated sugar
Red Wine – Whichever type you choose.

Prior to beginning, we suggest wearing an apron, gloves, and other protective clothing.  Also, sanitize your work area as well as all packaging supplies and utensils you will be using.

Wine Sugar Scrub RecipeWine Sugar Scrub Recipe Melt Your Oils

First, we will need to melt our natural oils, butters, and cosmetic waxes.  There are several oils and butters that will be added to this body scrub recipe.  Using a gram scale, weigh out your oils, butters, and waxes.  You will need 136 grams of olive oil, 41 grams of sweet almond oil, 40 grams of grape seed oil, 32 grams of avocado oil, 68 grams of cocoa butter deodorized, 68 grams of shea butter, 45 grams of traditional emulsifying wax, and finally 9 grams of beeswax.  We will be melting our oils, waxes, and butters using a double boiler.  So, you will need to create a double boiler using two pots. Melt the oils in the double boiler.  While you are waiting for the oils to melt, go ahead and move to the next step.

Wine Sugar Scrub RecipeWine Sugar Scrub Recipe Prepare the Sugar and Mica Mixture

Again, you will need your scale.  As alway, set the scale to weigh in grams. Then, add 896 grams of the granulated white sugar to your medium sized mixing bowl.  Then, add 1/2 teaspoon of Natures Garden’s diamond dust mica pigment.  While wearing gloves, use your hands to mix the mica into the sugar.  Also, make sure you break up any clumps of sugar with your hands.  You will need to be sure the mica is evenly dispersed throughout the white sugar.  Once you have finished, set this aside, for now, we will come back to it later.  Warning:  If you are anything like me, and distracted by sparkling objects, do not look into the bowl!  It will have the most beautiful shimmer!  I learned this one the hard way!  Admire it later, we still have more work to do!

Wine Sugar Scrub RecipeWine Sugar Scrub Recipe Adding Additional Ingredients

Once your oils have melted, place them in an empty mixing bowl.  Add 20 drops of Nature’s Garden’s Deep Purple FUN Soap Colorant and 15 drops our Tomato Red FUN Soap Colorant.  Mix well to incorporate the color.  Then, add 100 grams of red wine.  Mix well.  For this next step, the temperature is extremely important.  You should know that when adding Optiphen preservative if the temperature is too low you will experience separation in your finished product.  However, if the Optiphen is added when the temperature is too high, you will burn the optiphen preservative off.  So, allow your temperature to drop to 120 degrees, no lower.  At this temperature, add the 9 grams of Natures Garden’s Christmas Cabernet Fragrance Oil, the 5 grams of Optiphen preservative, and lastly, 5 grams of vitamin e oil (Tocopherol T-50).  Finally, mix everything very well to incorporate all of the ingredients.

Wine Sugar Scrub RecipeWine Sugar Scrub Recipe Putting it All Together

Now, to the medium bowl containing the oils, slowly add the white granulated sugar and mica mixture you prepared earlier.  Mix the sugar into the oils so it is evenly dispersed.  Once everything is mixed, allow the scrub to set up at room temperature.  Finally, add the wine body scrub to the 4 ounce PET plastic jars.  You will need nine of the 4 ounce jars for this scrub recipe.  We chose to use our white dome lids to top the jars.  Place a 58/400 white dome lid on top of each four ounce jar.  Now, your scrubs are ready to use.  You can use them right away.

One of my favorite wineries is Matus Winery!  If you’re local, or in the area, you must try one of their wine slushies!  On your next trip to your favorite local winery, pick up an extra bottle of red wine.  Then, go home, pour yourself a glass of wine, and make our Wine Sugar Scrub Recipe!  Perhaps even make it before an at home spa day with all your friends!  Be sure to take a lot of pictures and show us how your wine sugar scrub recipe turns out.  We absolutely love seeing your other projects too!  It doesn’t matter if it is this recipe or a different one.  Finally, post them to Natures Garden’s Facebook page or tag us on Instagram @ngscents.

Before you begin making our Pumpkin Sugar Scrub Recipe you will want to clean and sanitize your work area. We also recommend wearing protective clothing such as gloves, a hair net, and one of Natures Garden’s adorable aprons. Not only will they protect your clothing, but you’ll look fabulous while making your scrub.

Pumpkin Sugar Scrub Recipe Melting OilsPumpkin Sugar Scrub Recipe Preparing Your Double Boiler

One more thing before we start, you should know, placing your oils and butter on direct heat can burn your oils. For a double boiler, you will need two pots. Fill one of your pots with water. Place this pot on the stove using low heat. Then, add your weighed out butters and oils to the second pot. Place the second pot in the first pot containing the water.

Pumpkin Sugar Scrub Recipe Melting Your Oils

Pumpkin-Sugar-Scrub-Recipe-Weighing-OilsYou will begin by weighing out the following, 136 grams Coconut 76 oil, 93 grams Sunflower Oil, 74 grams Cocoa Butter Golden Natural, 62 grams Shea Butter, 50 grams Silky Emulsifying Wax, 20 grams Meadowfoam Seed Oil, 20 grams Pumpkin Seed Oil,12 grams White Beeswax. Now, you should place these ingredients in your double boiler. Allow them to melt.

Pumpkin Sugar Scrub Recipe Preparing Your Colorants

While you are waiting for your oils to melt, you can go ahead and prepare your colorants. You will need three small mixing bowls. While we will also be using Natures Garden’s Neon Orange FUN Soap Colorant, this will not be needed until later in the recipe. For now, we will just be preparing the powders that are needed for coloring. Once you have prepared them, you can set them aside, we will come back to them.

Pumpkin Sugar Scrub Recipe Orange LayerBowl One: The Orange Layer

To your first mixing bowl, weigh out and add grams of orange peel powder. Then, to the powder, add 15 grams of vegetable glycerin. Now use one of your mixing spoons to stir the ingredients. You are looking for a paste like consistency. Just make sure you have removed any lumps in the powder. Creating a paste allows the powder to disperse better, or more evenly in your scrub.

Pumpkin Sugar Scrub Recipe Brown LayerBowl Two: The Brown Layer

In the second mixing bowl, weigh out and add 4 grams of your pumpkin pie spice blend. Again, add 15 grams of vegetable glycerin. You want to mix them again with a clean spoon to create a paste.

Bowl Three: The White Layer

To bowl three, we will just be weighing out the titanium dioxide. You simply need to weigh out two grams of titanium dioxide oil dispersible. Since we will be adding this to our oils, you do not need to create a paste with this one.

Pumpkin Sugar Scrub Recipe Adding Your Other Ingredients

Next, once your oils have melted, remove them from the heat. You will need to watch the temperature closely. This step is extremely temperature sensitive. The reason for this is, the optiphen. Optiphen is a preservative used to prevent bacteria in the scrub. While typically optiphen is only added to products that contain water, we chose to add it because scrubs tend to come in contact with a lot of water. It needs to be added at 120 degrees. If it is added at a higher temperature, above 140 degrees Fahrenheit, you will burn off the preservative. However, adding it below 120 degrees Fahrenheit will cause separation.

Once your oils reach the magic number of 120 degrees Fahrenheit, add the following ingredients, 18 grams Pumpkin Walnut Biscotti Fragrance Oil, 5 grams optiphen preservative, 5 grams vitamin E oil, and 15 grams arrowroot powder. Mix well to fully incorporate all of the ingredients.

Pumpkin Sugar Scrub Recipe Adding SugarNext, add your white granulated sugar. Mix thoroughly, incorporating the sugar completely into the oils. Then, divide the mixture into three equal parts. This will mean you will be adding approximately 394 grams of the mixture to two empty bowls, leaving the remaining in your current mixing bowl.

Pumpkin Sugar Scrub Recipe Adding Your Colorants

Pumpkin-Sugar-Scrub-Recipe-Pumpkin-ColorantNow, let’s add some fun to the scrub! Colors! Remember those colorants we prepared earlier, this is when you will need them. Go ahead and get them. In your first bowl, add the titanium dioxide oil dispersible, this will be your white layer. Mix well to fully incorporate the powder. Now, to bowl two, add the pumpkin pie spice blend paste to your sugar mixture. Stir the paste into the sugar scrub until it is fully dispersed. Finally, to bowl the last powder add the orange peel powder blend, along with two drops of the neon orange Fun Soap Colorant. Again, mix well to incorporate the colorant evenly.

Pumpkin Sugar Scrub Recipe Adding the Scrub to Your Jars

Pumpkin Sugar Scrub Recipe LayeringFor the next portion of the pumpkin scrub recipe, you will need to allow the mixtures to come to room temperature. Also, be sure you do not see any oil sitting at the top of the product before moving to this step. Once you are ready, we will begin adding the sugar scrub to the jars. You will need seven four-ounce jars clear PET jars. Also, have seven 58/400 white dome lids ready.

We began layering our scrubs with the brown, pumpkin layer. However, you can begin with whatever color you choose. Another option would be to create more layers. While we only created three layers, you can make as many layers as you wish. So, here is how we created our layered scrub. You will begin by filling each of the seven jars 1/3 of the way full with the brown portion of the sugar scrub. Now, fill another 1/3 of the jar with the white portion of the scrub. Finally, top the jar off with the orange portion of the scrub. Once your jars are filled, whip away any residue on the jars. Then, place the white dome lids on top.

We hope that you have enjoyed creating this emulsified Pumpkin Sugar Scrub Recipe with us. Let us know what you think! Also, we would love to see how you have created your body scrubs. Show us your pictures by tagging us on Instagram @ngscents.

Coffee Sugar Scrub Recipe


This entry was posted in coffee sugar scrub recipe, fragrance oil, Fragrance Oils, Natures Garden, sugar scrub recipe and tagged , , , , , , , , , , , on by .

coffee scrub recipe

Coffee Sugar Scrub Recipe

A type of drink called Toffee Crunch Latte was my inspiration for coming up with a recipe called Toffee Crunch Latte Sugar Scrub. Melissa is an employee at Nature’s Garden whom has a deep craving for coffee every day during her shift; and it dawned on me to ask her what her favorite type was. I am always making her coffee every day and it surprised me that this was her favorite type of coffee, since usually she prefers hers black. The recipe overall is a fun idea to try and construct as it brings together the wonderful scents of coffee and caramel into different color layers of sugar scrub with a nice touch of whipped cream and brown sugar on top.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ingredients Needed:

454 grams Whipped Soap Base

152 grams Powdered Sugar

298 grams Brown Sugar

46 grams Café Caramel Fragrance Oil

46 grams Vanilla White Color Stabilizer

Brown Oxide Fun Soap Colorant

 

Directions:

  1. Start off weighing out 454 grams of soap base, 46 grams of Café Caramel Fragrance Oil, and 46 grams of vanilla white stabilizer; then you want to mix them together in a deep mixing bowl until you get a ball of dough.
  1. The ball of dough is then divided evenly into three separate bowls.
  1. In the first bowl, add 152 grams of powdered sugar; carefully folding the sugar in to incorporate it in evenly throughout the dough.
  1. In the second bowl, add 149 grams of brown sugar into the ball of dough and mix it into a light caramel color.
  1. In the third bowl, add 149 grams of brown sugar with enough brown oxide to make a dark coffee color.
  2.  When you get your colors, put the layers into the four ounce clear containers. Be very careful with the process as some of the colors will have the tendency to stick to the side of the container and dominate over the other layers. Your layers should be flattened out very smoothly to keep the colors from mixing.
  1.  Following the process of getting the brown accented layers on, the next step is to put the whipped cream on top. You  put the white portion of the mixed batter into a zip lock bag with a cake decorating tip and carefully try to whip up your own unique swirl on top of your creation to make it look like whipped cream sitting on top of a cup of latte.
  1.  Kick up your creation to the next level  by putting a sprinkle of brown sugar on top.

The whole experience was something new to me as I attempted to go head first into this project, since I have never had any experience before making a sugar scrub. I enjoyed the final look of the project when I was finished; and it had me craving coffee afterwards as the aroma just reminds you of walking into a local coffee shop early in the morning. If you are a coffee lover, then this recipe is sure to please.  Have fun with this recipe!

This sugar cube recipe is not only super easy to make, but it also takes very little time, and absolutely smells delicious.  With the pampering elements of exfoliation, skin loving oils, and gentle cleansing foam, these sugar scrubs are the perfect little bath time treat for yourself.

In all, this recipe will give you about 5 sugar cube clamshells (a total of 30 bath tub cubes), so technically you can stock yourself up well or treat your family and loved ones to a spectacular bath scrub.

homemade sugar cube scrubSugar Cube Scrubs Recipe

In this blog, you will learn how to make your very own sugar cube scrubs.  And, to do this is really very easy; taking only a few simple ingredients.

You can cater your sugar cube scrubs with various skin loving oils.  For this recipe, we will be using Apricot Kernel Oil–  a luxurious, conditioning oil that absorbs very nicely into your skin.  Grapeseed Oil– a natural oil that is filled with antioxidants (great for anti-aging products) and an oil that is also moisturizing.  Then, finally Sesame Seed Oil– another conditioning oil with the benefits of both antioxidants and vitamins.  To view the complete list of oils that can be used and their benefits, please click on this link

Besides the sugar which works to exfoliate, the other solid in this recipe is soap.  Cocoa Butter melt and pour soap; the one that was used in this recipe, provides a very nice lather.  To see the full list of the variety of melt and pour soap that could be used, please click on this link.

Mold wise, the 24 brownie bites silicone mold was used to make 12 sugar cubes.  But, any mold, even an ice tray will work for this recipe.  However, please note:  using a different mold will vary your total number of sugar cubes output.

Now, here is the recipe, steps, and photos of how to make homemade sugar cube scrubs.

Supplies Needed
Scale
Microwaveable Safe Bowl
Spoon
Spatula
Mixing Bowl

Recipe

170 grams Sugar
28 grams Apricot Kernel Oil
21 grams Grapeseed Oil
7 grams Sesame Seed Oil
85 grams Cocoa Butter M&P Soap
10 grams NG Warm Vanilla Sugar Scent (or any body safe fragrance oil)
2 grams Vanilla Powder
10 grams Vanilla White Color Stabilizer (used to stabilize any discoloration that may occur in the sugar cubes.  This is due to the vanillin content of Warm Vanilla Sugar.)
1 drop of any FUN Soap Colorant (We used Yellow Oxide)

Step 1:  Have your mold ready in your work space.  Then, weigh out your sugar in a bowl.  Set this aside.

Step 2: 
In your microwave safe bowl, weigh out the melt and pour soap.  Place the bowl in the microwave and heat for 30 seconds at a time.  Stir gently.
