Activated Charcoal Scrub Recipe

Activated Charcoal Scrub Recipe

Activated Charcoal Scrub RecipeAnd so my obsession with activated charcoal continues.  Our next activated charcoal bath and body recipe is an activated charcoal scrub recipe.  This homemade scrub recipe includes Natures Garden’s activated charcoal powder, shea butter, coconut oil and jojoba oil just to name a few ingredients.  Let me tell you this emulsified sugar scrub recipe is fantastic.  It left my skin feeling soft and silky!  I will be making this one again for sure.

Now, if you haven’t made your own emulsified scrub before, no worries, I will walk you through each step!  You might be asking yourself, what is an emulsified scrub?  How is it different from a regular sugar scrub?  Well, an emulsified sugar scrub contains, in this case, Natures Garden’s traditional emulsifying wax.  This ingredient will emulsify, or mix, the oils with the sugar without any separation.  Have you ever made a scrub only to later have the oil separate out and sit at the top of the jar?  This is likely to happen without an emulsifier in the mix.  This tutorial will show you exactly how to avoid that problem.  In addition, it has activated charcoal included.  Activated charcoal is known to be a fabulous detoxifying agent.  It is currently my favorite ingredient to add when creating handmade soap and cosmetic recipes.

Activated Charcoal Scrub Recipe Before You Begin

Before you begin, you will want to prepare your supplies and equipment.  Clean and sanitize your work area, all of your packaging material, and utensils you will be using.  Additionally, you will want to wear an apron, a hairnet, and gloves when preparing this activated charcoal recipe.  Also, go ahead and melt your coconut oil 76.  Coconut oil will be in a solid state at temperatures above 76 degrees but will be liquid below that temperature.  So, it will be pretty easy to melt it.  Place your bottle of coconut oil in a bowl of warm tap water.

Activated Charcoal Scrub Recipe Melting Your Oils

First, you will need your scale.  Then, with you scale set to grams, weigh out 128 grams of your macadamia nut oil, 83 grams of shea butter, 70 grams mango butter, 63 grams emulsifying wax traditional, 23 grams jojoba oil, and 14 grams of white beeswax pastilles.  Then, use a double boiler to melt the oils, butters, and waxes.  While you are waiting for them to melt move to the next step.

Activated Charcoal Scrub Recipe Prepare the Other Ingredients

You will once again need your scale and a large mixing bowl.  Also, you will need the sugar.  Next, weigh out 765 grams of white granulated sugar.  Go ahead and set this aside for the moment.  You will need it in a future step.

 

 

Activated Charcoal Scrub Recipe Prepare the Other Ingredients

 

Now, we will prepare the activated charcoal.  Before we add the activated charcoal to the scrub, we are going to add vegetable glycerin.  This will help your charcoal powder disperse evenly throughout the scrub without clumping.  So, use your scale to weigh out 6 grams of activated charcoal.  Then, add 16 grams of vegetable glycerin.  Mix the ingredients until you have a smooth paste like consistency.  Also, set this off to the side, we will come back to it.

Next, once the oils have melted, remove them from the heat.  Then, let the temperature drop a bit.  You want the temperature of the oils to come down to between 120 degrees Fahrenheit to 140 degrees Fahrenheit.  Then, add 6 grams of your Optiphen Preservative.  Mix well to incorporate the Optiphen.  I should note, the temperature is extremely important for this step.  If it is above 140 degrees Fahrenheit, you will burn off the preservative. If it is below 120 degrees, the preservative will separate from the scrub.

Activated Charcoal Scrub Recipe Putting it All Together

 

Then, add 17 grams of arrowroot powder.  Mix the arrowroot powder into the oils thoroughly.  Next, add 6 grams Vitamin E Oil, 20 grams of Black Linen and Amber Fragrance Oil.  Again, stir to incorporate all of the ingredients.

 

 

Activated Charcoal Scrub Recipe Putting it All Together

 

Now, we will put everything together.  You will need the bowl containing the sugar.  Slowly pour the oils into the bowl of sugar.  Use a spatula to mix the sugar and oils.

Once they are mixed together, add the activated charcoal you prepared earlier.  Then, stir the activated charcoal into the mixture.  Finally, allow the scrub to come to room temperature before moving on to the next step.  The activated charcoal scrub will thicken as it cools.

Lastly, we will be adding the scrub to the jars.  You will need four of your 8 ounce black double wall jars.  In addition, you will need four black dome lids 89/400.  Use a spatula or spoon to scoop the scrub into the 8 ounce jars.  Then, place a black dome lid on top of each jar.

 

 

Finally, when using your scrub, scoop a small amount of the activated charcoal scrub out of the jar.  Then, apply it to your face and use your fingers to scrub away.  Then, simply rinse the scrub off with warm water and a washcloth.  We hope that you enjoy Natures Garden’s activated charcoal scrub recipe.  For even more cosmetic, soap, and candle recipes, check out our recipe box.  Also, let us know what you have been up to!  Post pics of your handmade projects on our Facebook page.  You can also tag us on Instagram or Twitter @ngscents.

Vanilla Brown Sugar Scrub RecipeVanilla Brown Sugar Scrub Recipe

Often times, our customers will give us input on things that might be missing from our recipe box.  Our next recipe, a vanilla brown sugar scrub, came from some of these requests.  We have had many requests for an emulsified brown sugar scrub recipe.  So, we decided to create our vanilla brown sugar scrub recipe.  This recipe not only uses brown sugar, but also vanilla powder.  In addition, we are using a variety of natural oils and waxes.  Personally, I have found that I love the gentle exfoliation a brown sugar body scrub gives to my skin.  So, if you are a fan of sugar scrubs, and typically use white sugar, I suggest trying the addition of brown sugar instead this time.  Compare the two types for yourself!  Let us know what you think.

Vanilla Brown Sugar Scrub Recipe:  Before Starting Prepare Your Packaging Materials

Before you start creating your scrub you will want to clean your work area and utensils.  You will also want to sanitize all of the packaging materials and other items you will be using to make this vanilla scrub recipe.  In addition, you will want to wear an apron, gloves, and a hair net while making this craft project.  You will need nine of the 4 ounce clear PET jars.  Also, nine white dome lids 58/400.  Once you have everything ready, go ahead and move to the next step.

Vanilla Brown Sugar Scrub Recipe:  Preparing Your Oils, Waxes, and Butters

Vanilla Brown Sugar Scrub Recipe: Preparing Your Oils, Waxes, and ButtersWe will be using a double boiler to melt our oils, butters, and waxes once we weigh them out.  Using a double boiler will prevent our oils from burning, or getting too hot.  So, weigh out 136 grams of coconut oil 76, 110 grams of grape seed oil, 74 grams cocoa butter golden natural, 62 grams of shea butter, 50 grams of emulsifying wax traditional, 23 grams of jojoba oil, and 12 grams of white beeswax.  Allow these ingredients to melt, stirring occasionally.  While we are waiting for the oils to melt, we can go get our other ingredients weighed out.  Move to the next step.

Vanilla Brown Sugar Scrub Recipe:  Preparing the Other Ingredients Needed

Vanilla Brown Sugar Scrub Recipe: Preparing the Other Ingredients NeededWe will start by weighing out the brown sugar.  You will need to medium size mixing bowl.  Use a scale to weigh out 860 grams of brown sugar.  If you notice any clumps of sugar you will want to use your hands to break them up.  Next, we will be adding the vanilla powder to the brown sugar.  Using your scale, weigh out 5 grams of vanilla powder.  Mix this into the brown sugar.  You want to make sure the vanilla powder is evenly dispersed in the sugar.  I also found it easier to use my hands to mix it in.

Vanilla Brown Sugar Scrub Recipe: Preparing the Other Ingredients NeededNow, we will begin weighing out the other ingredients in separate bowls.  I find it easiest to have these weighed out in small bowls ahead of time so I can be prepared when my oils are finished melting.  Once again, using a scale, weigh out 10 grams of optiphen preservative.  Then, in another bowl, weigh out 30 grams of Natures Garden’s Vanilla Extract Fragrance Oil.  In a third bowl, weigh out 5 grams of vitamin e oil.  Finally, in a fourth bowl, weigh out 15 grams of arrowroot powder.  Set these off to the side until your oils have finished melting.

Vanilla Brown Sugar Scrub Recipe:  Combining All of the Ingredients

I would like to note a few things before we begin this step.  The temperature is extremely important here since we are adding a preservative.  If we add our Optiphen preservative above 140 degrees Fahrenheit it will burn off.  However, adding it below 120 degrees will cause separation in your finished product.  You may also be wonder why we are adding a preservative.  While our vanilla brown sugar scrub recipe scrub doesn’t  contain water, body scrubs are typically used in the shower so, they may come in contact with quite a bit of water.  It is better to be safe when making this type of product.  After all, you do not want your customers, or yourself getting sick from bacteria growth in your product.

Vanilla Brown Sugar Scrub Recipe: Combining All of the IngredientsSo, with all of the being said, let’s move on to putting everything together.  Once your oils have melted, allow the temperature to drop to around 120 degrees Fahrenheit, no lower.  First, we will add the 15 grams of arrowroot powder to the melted oil.  Use a spatula to mix the arrowroot powder into the oil.  Next, add the 10 grams of Optiphen preservative you prepared earlier.  Then, the 30 grams of Vanilla Extract Fragrance Oil.  Finally, add the 5 grams of vitamin e oil.  As you are adding each ingredient you will want to mix well to incorporate each one.

Vanilla Brown Sugar Scrub Recipe:  Adding the Brown Sugar and Vanilla Powder Mixture

Vanilla Brown Sugar Scrub Recipe: Adding the Brown Sugar and Vanilla Powder MixtureFinally, we will be adding the sugar to the scrub recipe.  Add the bowl of sugar and vanilla powder you prepared in a an earlier step.  Once added, mix very well to incorporate the brown sugar.  Then, allow the vanilla brown sugar scrub to set up at room temperature.  This will allow the oils to combine completely with the sugar.  Once the scrub is at room temperature, begin adding it to your jars.  We chose to use the 4 oz clear jars.  Also, we used white dome lids.  However, if you choose, you can use a different jar and lid combination.  Just remember using 4 oz jars allows us to create 9 jars of vanilla brown sugar scrubs.  Once you have filled each jar, place a lid on top.

Finally, I have got to say, if you are looking for a gentle sugar scrub recipe, personally, I highly recommend this one.  I have found brown sugar to be a wonderful addition to scrub recipes.  I will definitely be making this recipe again.  Personally, I may even be making these for Christmas baskets that I plan to give to my friends and family.  I’m thinking I might add some mica this time, just because I LOVE all things that sparkle!  Have you created your own brown sugar scrub?  Perhaps you have created another bath and body product?  Or, maybe you have used this recipe?  We would love to see how yours turned out!  Post a pic on Instagram, tagging @ngscents.  Alternatively, you could post a picture directly to our Facebook page.  We absolutely love seeing how our customers are using our products!  We hope that you enjoy this brown sugar scrub recipe as much as we have!
