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!
