Creme Brulee Lip Scrub Recipe: Melting the Lip Balm Base and the White Chocolate Wafers

Creme Brulee Lip Scrub RecipeInitially, you will need to find a scale that will measure in ounces. Be sure the units are set to the ounce measurement. Now, you will need a microwave safe bowl.  Then, use your scale to weigh out 4 ounces of Natures Garden’s all natural lip balm base. Next, you are going to melt the lip balm base. You can use a microwave for a minute or so to melt the lip balm base, but make sure that your lip balm base doesn’t get overheated. Remove the bowl from the microwave after a minute has passed and stir the lip balm base to determine whether it is entirely melted or needs to be microwaved longer. You shouldn’t do intervals much longer than a minute. Doing so could cause the base to overheat.

Creme Brulee Lip Scrub RecipeSecond, you will need to prepare the addition of the white chocolate wafers. Add 5 of your white chocolate wafers to a different microwave safe bowl. You will want to melt the chocolate in the microwave, but the chocolate will not need to be heated for very long. It should only take about thirty seconds for the wafers to melt. It is important that the chocolate is not burnt to preserve the taste for the lip scrub. So, if you need to microwave the chocolate longer make sure you are watching it carefully.

Creme Brulee Lip Scrub Recipe: Combine Base Ingredients

Creme Brulee Lip Scrub RecipeNow, you are going to combine the lip balm base, white chocolate, and Crème Brulee Flavoring into the bowl with the lip balm base. Once the white chocolate wafers and lip balm base are both melted, you can add the white chocolate to the liquid lip balm base. Next, using a pipette, add 20 drops of Creme Brulee flavor oil into the bowl of melted base. Quickly and thoroughly mix these ingredients together.

Creme Brulee Lip Scrub Recipe: Separate the Top Layer From Base Mixture

Next, you will separate a portion of the base for later use. Since you will need to create a top layer for your crème brulee lip scrub, some of the lip balm base mixture needs to be separated out. So, grab the scale from before and make sure the units remain on ounces. Take your bowl containing the melted base. Weigh out 1 ounce of this mixture into a separate microwave safe bowl. This 1 ounce of lip balm base will be used as the top layer in a later step, but you can set it aside for now.

Creme Brulee Lip Scrub Recipe: Pouring the Bottom Lip Balm Layer

Creme Brulee Lip Scrub RecipeYou will create the bottom layer of the lip scrub in this step. Your bottom layer will be creme brulee flavored lip balm.  Take your ten 10 ml. clear jars and line them up. You will need to pour the remaining 3 ounces of base lip balm mixture carefully to create a clean bottom layer in the jars. So, try to limit the lip balm getting on the sides of your jars as much as humanly possible. The jars should be filled with this base layer to just under two thirds of the way to the rim of the lip balm jar. This should leave you with about a third left to include the top layer. It is not extremely important whether you get this proportion perfectly accurate, but make sure you will have enough room for a thinner top layer to be added on in a later step.

While it is easier to just avoid getting the lip balm base on the sides of the jar to begin with, we all know that accidents can happen. Luckily, these splashes and misses that cling to the lip balm pot can be cleaned up. Simply take a toothpick and carefully remove excess white lip balm that is above the level of the layer. This will prevent streaks of white from being visible after the top layer is added. Be careful not to poke the toothpick into the layer around the edges, as this will be seen later through the clear jar.

Creme Brulee Lip Scrub Recipe: Creating the Top Layer

Creme Brulee Lip Scrub RecipeNext, you are going to create the top layer. At this point, it is likely that the mixture you set aside for the top layer has hardened. While you will need to re-melt this portion of the base, this step will be quick and it is important that the base layer is set up before you begin. So, you may want to wait a minute before starting this step. However, use your own discretion. If the bottom layer looks like it is already set up, then there is no need to delay.

Next, retrieve the 1 ounce of the lip balm base mixture you previously set aside. Your top layer cannot be reheated once the sugar is added. The sugar has the potential to melt or burn, which would ruin the lip scrub. Now, you can reheat this mixture in the microwave in thirty second increments. Weigh out 1 ounce of your brown sugar, add it to the base and stir. These combined ingredients will begin to make the mixture feel thick, don’t panic you still have some time. Take a spoon and scoop the top layer into the 10 ml. jars. We suggest scooping slightly more than you need, pushing down lightly to push the layers together, and smoothing the excess off the top. Once you have filled the jars, feel free to smooth out the tops. Finally, your lip scrubs are complete!

Creme Brulee Lip Scrub Recipe: Using the Scrub

When you use this brown sugar scrub simply place a bit on your lips and scrub away.  The exfoliation of this recipe comes from brown sugar scrub, which is intended to remove any chapped skin to create more smooth, luscious lips. Our all natural lip balm base provides the moisturizing power that your lips need this time of year. The brown sugar offers a gentle exfoliation that your lips are sure to love!  You can then follow this sugar scrub up with a little bit of the bottom lip balm layer.  We are sure you will find this recipe just as delightful as we have. The scrumptious taste of this lip balm recipe comes from our Crème Brulee lip balm flavoring and a touch of white chocolate wafers. The combination of these lovely ingredients creates a lip scrub recipe that is super cute and perfect for the winter season!

We hope that you love this recipe and enjoyed creating your own Crème Brulee Lip Scrubs. It both looks and smells like a delicious dessert with an added benefit of tasting delicious. I probably shouldn’t lick the scrub off right after putting some on, but I just haven’t been able to help myself. Plus, the recipe creates quick a bit of lip scrubs, which is perfect for sharing with loved ones or saving for the holidays. Since Christmas is right around the corner, you could use these tasty lip scrubs as stocking stuffers or small gifts for your friends and family. This creation would definitely be a great gift, but I couldn’t really blame you for saving all ten for yourself.

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!
