Today in the Scrub Me Down Kitchen we are making an emulsified sugar scrub. This scrub is loaded with fantastic goodies and was originally inspired by Ariane Arsenault. We’ve done what she’s done, and taken a fantastic DIY recipe and tweaked it to suit our needs and the needs of our customers. We’ve changed up the oils a wee bit and included some rice bran oil which is ever so popular here in China.
My work space is quite small as you can see, so it gets a wee bit frustrating when trying to make a large amount at one time.
In our recipe we used (in no particular order): beeswax, virgin coconut oil, stearic acid, ewax, apricot kernel oil, rice bran oil, wheat germ oil, evening primrose oil, camellia seed oil, preservative, fragrance oils and Himalyan salt and Korean sugar.
The fragrances we decided on were Tahitian Vanilla for the sugar scrub and Coconut Lime for the salt. And good lord does my house smell like I could eat it.
And that is probably a bad thing.
So over here on the right, you can see the almost finished bowls of scrub. Top is sugar and the bottom is salt.
You can see what I ended up doing, trying to get the coconut lime to look like a margarita, but as you can see, the green mica I used… well, it didn’t mix well with the salt. But it still looks lovely in my opinion! More earthy green. I like it!
Then finally comes the two of three jobs I really hate doing. Labeling, doing the washing up and then packaging.
So wish I had a bigger kitchen to work with! Then I could have double sinks and a larger work area and and and and and and….
Have you ever made an emulsified scrub? What did you think about it?
