It is that time of year.  With winter comes both dry skin and chapped lips.  All of us need a little exfoliation from time to time.  However, all too often we treat our body to a luxurious scrub.  How often do we give the same attention to our lips?  If you are like me, you may give them a little gloss, or maybe some lip balm, but ladies and gents, I think it is time we pay them a bit more attention.  Don’t neglect those lovely lips.  After all, a beautiful smile can easily brighten someone’s day.  So don’t hide those lips, exfoliate them.  Our brown sugar lip scrub recipe will gently do just that.

Brown Sugar Lip Scrub Recipe

First, we will weigh out the three main ingredients.  Prepare your scale, make sure it is set to weigh in ounces.  You will want to use three small bowls.  Add one ounce of sweet almond oil to the first bowl.  Add 1.25 ounces of light brown sugar to the second bowl.  You will also need to use your scale to weigh out one ounce of the natural lip balm base.  Make sure you are placing the base in a microwave safe bowl.

Next, we will begin melting the lip balm base.  Melt it in the microwave in thirty second bursts.  Be careful when melting.  You only want to melt the base, you do not want to over-heat it.

However, it is optional.  You can also adjust the amount of flavoring you add to your liking.

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.
