Coffee Sugar Scrub Recipe

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!

leo scentsLeo Scents

We wanted to start this year off with a fun and creative presentation.  So, we conducted some research to find exactly what fragrance notes and combinations would most likely correspond with the various Zodiac signs.  Based on specific personality traits of each sign, we were able to assemble particular scents that a person born under the Leo zodiac sign would like.

Beginning July 23rd, Leos quickly and playfully become the center of attention.  So, without further adieu; we at Natures Garden would like to be the first to say Happy Birthday to all Leos.  And, now we would like to welcome everyone to the lively world of Leo Scents.

Leos are considered anyone born between and including the dates of July 23rd through August 21st.

Unfortunately, we currently do not have anyone on staff at Natures Garden that is a Leo.  We do have family and friends that are Leos though.  They are a very warm and welcoming group with an enthusiasm and zest for life that is unmatched.  Always willing to be there and help out, Leos are considered a true and valuable friend.  When times get crazy, they will rush to console, cheer up, or celebrate with you.  Leos like to keep things in the present; never dwelling on what could have been. Their cheerful and optimistic attitude is one of the reasons as to why Leos are always surrounded by friends.

Leo - Confident, Encouraging, Ambitious, Loyal

Symbol- the Lion

Sign- Fire

This loving and good natured group is faithful and charitable. They are open minded and are quick to become the center of attention in a group setting. Leos are playful and fun; accepting and appreciating others for who they are. When it comes to scents, Leos prefer limelight scents with warming and floral notes.

In order to best capture a Leo’s interest, select fragrances that contain notes of:

Fruits: Lime, Tangerine, Mandarin

Florals: Orange Blossom, Juniper, Neroli

Spices: Cinnamon, Nutmeg

Fragrance Oil and Scent Suggestions:
