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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
