    Does anyone have a tried and true recipe for a sugar scrub that they would be willing to share? I have come to realize that I LOVE sugar scrubs and I would like to make one. :D

    Thanks,
    Sara

    This is one my sis made and gave for gifts leaving out the oil. Layered the dry ingridients, tied a pretty bow and a note stating to stir in 1/2 oil

    1/2 cup white sugar
    1/2 cup brown sugar
    1/4 cup powered cocoa
    a few drops of chocolate and/or raspberry fragranced oil (not necessary)
    layer in jar with recipe to mix and add
    1/2 cup canola oil we used light olive oil

    Mine is just sugar and oil. No recipe. Ratio and what sugar I use depends on my mood. LOL I don't sell it though.

    Now I am really getting into salt scrubs and thought I had them down pat. Then I went to a show where there was a sample in the restroom to be used on your hands. Never thought of using them on my hands. It was really nice.

    hmm I use a cup brown sugar a cup almond oil, and a little splash extra of white sugar to get the desired consistency, I also add in a tablespoon unrefined Shea butter. I package this in a blue round 4 oz with the press and seal, and a little wooden spoon tied on with a red ribbon. I add either lavender, or vanilla for scent. Now I'm NEW to sugar scrubs so If this sounds wrong Please correct me!

    Thanks for the recipes. I think I want something with a preservative. I have also heard of sugar scrubs made with e wax... does anyone make any with this ingredient? What oils are best to use? How much scent is used?

    Thanks much,
    Sara

    don't think you need a presearvative if no water is involved.

    If you sell an Item that has the propensity to come in contact with water, like moistened fingers in the sugar scrub than yes, you do need to add a preservative ;)

    Yes, that is what I've heard about scrubs. For my own personal use I do not want the preservative and only make up enough to last a week and use care getting it out of the jar with a clean spoon. The preservative issue is what keeps me from making some of this stuff to sell. You just know people are going to get water in there. So for now, I'm happy that I can make it for myself. :)

    I'm curious about how to figure out how much preservative to use in a scrub also.

    Does using e-wax keep it from separating? Is this what they call an emulsified scrub?

    Yes, it does. I've been toying with several I have found on forums and haven't come up with one I love yet. I'm wondering if I like non emulsified better. I'm eager to see Barbara's.

    It is posted in the recipe section, it uses a conditioning emulsifier that softens your skin...
    Enjoy everyone... This one is great, I add seeds to help ex-foliate, poppy, strawberry, blueberry, or raspberry... You can make it with brown sugar, you can use regular e-wax.. You can add cream soap to make it a foamy sugar scrub... You can really play with this because it is a emusiflied scrub

    I have not tried the scrubs that contain soap (though I would like to eventually). My older skin likes the little bit of oil left after I use one of my scrubs. I do not need to use a moisturizer on my face at all. But I could see some younger folks or folks with oily skin who would not like it.
