We at Natures Garden have the perfect fragrance oils for Independence Day! Of course, we have some truly patriotic scents that are all in celebration of this fine country.

So, we thought about some of the important overall traits for the Democrats, the Republicans, and the Independents. Then, we ask our perfumist to translate these characteristics into real scents. So, we believe that these political scents are perfect for celebrating how far our country has come and looking forward to will happen next.

This led to the American Revolution and ultimately our independence from Great Britain. So, we decided to create the Boston Tea Party Fragrance Oil to remind us of the important history that led to Independence Day.

Finally, the scent finishes with notes of refreshing musk.

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 Ingredients Found at Natures Garden

 

Vanilla Brown Sugar Scrub Recipe Other Ingredients and Equipment Needed

Mixing Bowls
Spatula
Mixing Spoon
Stove
Pots- for double boiler step
Brown Sugar
Scale

Vanilla Brown Sugar Scrub Recipe Total Recipe Amounts

860 grams – brown sugar
136 grams – Coconut 76 oil
110 grams – Grapeseed Oil
74 grams – Cocoa Butter Golden Natural
62 grams – Shea Butter
50 grams – Emulsifying Wax Traditional
30 grams – Vanilla Extract Fragrance Oil
23 grams – Jojoba Oil
15 grams – Arrowroot Powder
12 grams – White Beeswax Pastilles
10 grams – Optiphen Preservative
5 grams – Vitamin E Oil
5 grams – Vanilla Powder

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!

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.
