Pink Lemonade Scrub RecipePink Lemonade Scrub Recipe

The Pink Lemonade Scrub Recipe is a brand new sugar scrub recipe straight from the creative minds of Natures Garden. While you have quite a few of our own sugar scrub recipes available to you, this particular recipe is one that you do not want to miss out on. Not only is this scrub super easy to create, it has three super cute layers that make this product really pop!

Plus, this sweet lemonade sugar scrub creation uses the amazingly delicious and unique Raspberry Lemonade Fragrance Oil, which adds a whole new level of yumminess to your scented scrubs. Plus, we haven’t even mentioned how wonderful the oils are for your skin, as of course, it wouldn’t be a true Natures Garden body scrub recipe if your skin wasn’t benefiting in some way. Like all of the lovely layered scrubs we have made, this recipe uses some of the best oils and butters for a delightful, skin softening experience. Further, this recipe will create enough sugar scrub mixture to create seven individual PET jars full of this fantastic sugar scrub. So, we hope that you try out our sweet pink lemonade sugar scrub recipe because we just know that you would love it as much as we do!

Pink Lemonade Scrub Recipe Clean and Sanitize Before Working

Before you begin this project make sure to have a clean work space prepared and that you have your sanitized utensils ready to use. This is not only important for you to have an easier time crafting, but prevents your cute Pink Lemonade Scrubs from potentially being contaminated during the process. So, you must be clean and prepared to make the best possible sugar scrub while having the most fun that you can. Thus, we suggest that you do some tidying prep work.

First, remove anything in your work space that could get in your way. For this layered body scrub recipe you will need both a flat surface to work and a stove top. So, be sure you have these areas both cleaned and sanitized. Next, you will want to make sure that all of your equipment is ready to use. Not only should it be sanitized, but it should be within an arms length of your work space. This will make the process easy for you as you will not need to pause to look for any of the necessary components. After everything is ready for you to work, it is time for you to create your sweet sugar scrub!

Pink Lemonade Scrub Recipe Using the Double Boiler Method

Further, you should know how to create a double boiler for this recipe. If you already know what this is, then skip ahead. But, those that don’t know how to create one should pay attention because this device is crucial for avoiding burnt oils. Thus, a double boiler can potentially save you from a disaster with your butters and oils.

So, we will walk through how to create the double boiler with two average pots. First, take the two differently sized pots that you should have ready for this recipe and make sure that one pot can fit inside the other pot easily with some room on either side. The larger pot will contain the water and the smaller pot will be used to melt your ingredients. Also, you want the water to touch the bottom of the small pot, but make sure the water won’t splash into your oils!

Pink Lemonade Scrub Recipe Heating Your Oils, Butters, and WaxPink Lemonade Scrub Recipe Weighing and Heating Your Oils, Butters, and Wax

First, you will weigh out all the ingredients that you will need to heat and melt for this recipe. So, get a scale and tare the weight of a bowl. Weigh out 136 grams of the Coconut Oil 76, 113 grams of the Sunflower Oil, 74 grams of the Mango Butter, 62 grams of the Cocoa Butter Golden Natural, 50 grams of the Traditional Emulsifying Wax, 20 grams of the Olive Oil Pomace, and 12 grams of the Beeswax White Pastilles. Then, transfer these ingredients to the small pot of your double boiler. Occasionally stir as these weighed ingredients are melting.

While you wait for your ingredients to melt, you can prepare your other powders. You will need your titanium dioxide, lemon peel powder and arrowroot powder. Also, get three medium bowls.

First, take one of your clean bowls and weigh out a single gram of the Lemon Peel Powder into the bowl. Then, add 7 grams of the vegetable glycerin to this same bowl. Now, mix these two ingredients together well enough to create a paste. This lemon powder paste will be used later in the yellow colored layer of this scrub. Second, take another of your clean bowls and weigh 2 grams of your Titanium Dioxide Oil Dispersible. This will be used for the white layer of this scrub. Finally, add 15 grams of arrowroot powder to the third bowl.  Set all of these bowls aside for now.

After your oils, waxes, and butter ingredients are melted, you will be adding a few more liquid ingredients. So, transfer your melted oils, butters, and wax to the same bowl used to weigh them earlier and tare the bowl’s weight on the scale. Then, wait until the temperature drops to about 120-140 degrees Fahrenheit. Now, you can weigh 18 grams of the Raspberry Lemonade Fragrance Oil, 5 grams of the Optiphen Preservative, the 15 grams of the Arrowroot Powder, and 5 grams of the Vitamin E Oil. Finally, mix all these ingredients well enough to incorporate everything.

Pink Lemonade Scrub Recipe Adding the White Granulated SugarPink Lemonade Scrub Recipe Adding the White Granulated Sugar

Now, we are going to weigh the white granulated sugar for this scrub. So, take your scale and weigh out 680 grams of the white granulated sugar.  Then, add the sugar to the oil mixture that you have created. As you are adding the sugar, make sure that you stir well enough to incorporate everything. You want to make sure that the sugar is evenly dispersed throughout the oil mixture.

Pink Lemonade Scrub Recipe Separating the Scrub for the Three LayersPink Lemonade Scrub Recipe Separating the Scrub for the Three Layers

Next, you are going to separate your big batch into three bowls. These will each be colored differently to create the three layers. Make sure you use the two bowls that we used for the lemon peel paste and the titanium dioxide as well as another clean bowl. Now, divide the large mixture of sugar and oils into your three bowls evenly. Each of these three bowls should get about 400 grams of the sugar scrub mixture.

Pink Lemonade Scrub Recipe Coloring the Three Scrub Layers Pink Lemonade Scrub Recipe Creating the Different Sugar Scrub Layers

Now, you are going to color the contents of your three bowls. Each of these bowls will be a different color, which will be a white, a pink, and a yellow.

First, you will create the yellow colored scrub layer. For this step you will need the bowl that contains the lemon peel powder paste and a portion of the scrub mixture. Then, add 15 drops of the FUN Soap Colorant Neon Yellow to this same bowl and mix well to incorporate all of your colorant. Second, you will need the white colored sugar scrub. You should have already created this color using the 2 grams of titanium dioxide that you have previously weighed. Just make sure to mix well enough to create a white hue and set these two bowls aside.

Pink Lemonade Scrub Recipe Coloring the Pink Scrub LayerPink Lemonade Scrub Recipe Coloring the Pink Scrub Layer

Next, you will be creating the bottom layer of your sugar scrub. This third bowl will be colored pink. So, add 2 drops of your FUN Soap Colorant Tomato Red, 2 drops of the FUN Soap Colorant Ultramarine Violet , and 5 drops of the FUN Soap Colorant Neon Pink to the last uncolored bowl. This will create the most perfect pink hue for the Pink Lemonade Scrub Recipe! Mix the colorant into the scrub. Now, you have the pink, yellow, and white colors prepared for the layers of your scrub!

Now, you will be adding the completed sugar scrub mixtures to your clear PET jars. First, you must wait for each bowl to reach room temperature. After, your scrub is ready to package up and you can begin creating your three layers.

First, you are going to be adding your pink sugar scrub mixture to the jars first. So, take the pink colored sugar scrub mixture and begin scooping it into one of your jars, You will want to make sure to leave room for the other two layers, so only fill each of your seven jars 1/3 of the way full. Then, repeat this step with your other jars until you are out of pink sugar scrub.

Pink Lemonade Scrub Recipe Finishing Up the Sugar ScrubPink Lemonade Scrub Recipe Adding More of the Sugar Scrub Layers

Then, you are going to create the next layers with your remaining two colored scrubs. Now, you will use the white portion of your pink lemonade scrub for your second layer. Yo will want to fill the jar about one third more. Again, make sure to leave room for the remaining layer. Repeat this for the remainder of your PET jars. This should leave you with two layers in each jar.

Finally, you will be adding the last layer to your jars. So,take your yellow portion of this scrub and fill the rest of your jars to the inner rim. But, don’t add too much yellow to a single jar as this layer should be about as thick as any other layer you have added. Now, your jars are completely and your scrub is finally ready!  Simply, place a lid on each jar, and if you’d like, you can use them right away.

Before you begin making our Pumpkin Sugar Scrub Recipe you will want to clean and sanitize your work area.

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.

Lavender Apple Fragrance OilLavender Apple Fragrance Oil – Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Lavender Apple Fragrance Oil is a clean fruit scent by Natures Garden. Our customers highly recommend this fragrance oil. Whether they are using it in cp soap, scented soy candles, or homemade lotions, like us, they find it beautifully unique.  One reviewer has said, “Personally, I am not a huge lavender fan, however, this description caught my eye. I gave it a try in both lotion and a soy candle. I am really very pleased with the results. It is a very soothing scent. I have already had to replace my stock of this scent twice. People just can not get enough. What an excellent choice.”

What Does Lavender Apple Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

This fragrance oil by Natures Garden will make your home smell clean, and will help to relax your mind at the same time!  Lavender Apple fragrance starts with top notes of red delicious apple, raspberries, plum, and sugar; followed by middle notes of floral rosaceous green notes, lilac, pear, and eucalyptus; and sits on a powdery, woodsy musk base note. An NG Original Fragrance! Note:  This scent is a dupe of a famous natural cleaning company and they call it Lavender Apple.  While it is called lavender apple, you will notice that our perfumist’s description does not list lavender as a fragrance note.  That is because it was never a note in the cleaning product that was duped.

How Do Our Customers Use Lavender Apple Fragrance Oil in Room Scenting Recipes?

Our customers who like to create their own room scenting products can use this clean fragrance oil in their products. Potpourri and incense can be made using a maximum of 50% for this fragrance oil in their recipes. Any homemade cleaning products can be made with no more than 5% of this fragrance oil in their recipe. Also, our customers love to use this scented oil in aroma bead products.

Additionally, homemade candle creations can be made with this fruity fragrance oil. Any candle product that is made of either vegetable waxes or paraffin wax can include up to 10% of this fragrance oil. Joy wax and WOW wax will allow you to create wonderfully scented homemade candles. Also, the scent will remain nice and strong in candle products that are made from soy wax. If you want to add color to your candle products, then we suggest using either three drops of purple liquid candle dye along with one drop of red liquid candle dye or a small amount of shredded purple and red color blocks per four pounds of wax. Remember to never use crayons to color your candles as they will clog your wick.

How Do Our Customers Use Lavender Apple Fragrance Oil in Bath and Body Recipes?

Homemade bath and body product recipes can utilize this cleansing fruit fragrance oil. Bath gels, bath oils, soaps, lotions, and so much more bath and body products can be created using a maximum of 5% for this scent. Further, this fragrance oil will perfumes perfectly at a fragrance oil concentration no more than 5%.

Also, this fruit fragrance oil can be included in the creation of soaps through a variety of different methods. For instance, our Cold Process Soap Testing Results have shown that this scent is a great addition for creating cold process soap.  Natures Garden’s test batch containing this fragrance oil showed no ricing, no acceleration, and no separation. The final product had a very strong and herbal scent and the bar did not have any discoloration. If you want to color your bath and body products, then we suggest using some red and purple soap colorants in the amount you desire. Just remember to never use candle dye in any body products.
