A Whipped Foaming Sugar Scrub is a sensory treat for your bath or shower. The combination of a luxurious whipped bath butter, and exfoliating sugar scrub is what makes it special. This recipe can be tailored to fit any niche, so you can make a version that includes your favorite fragrances, additives or colors! The basic recipe is simple and fit for any crafting level.
Whipped Foaming Sugar Scrub
This recipe just requires three key ingredients. Other additives such as color, oils, or other exfoliates are decided by you the creator. However, I will give you a variety of options that I love to use.
- 85% Sugar (Granulated or Turbinado is OK)
- 14% Foaming Bath Whip Base
- 1% Fragrance or Essential Oil
Simply whip all of the ingredients together using a hand or standing mixer, they both work equally well. However, keep in mind that you should avoid over mixing this product, for it could cause it to collapse. While still usable, it simply does not look as decadent. If you use the Turbinado sugar the scrub will be a brown color.
Recipe Variations & Ideas
Here are some complementary ideas, and recipes for different renditions of the Foaming Sugar Scrub. Use them for inspiration and add your own twist.
Sugary Unicorn Whip
You will need:
- Foaming Sugar Scrub recipe listed above
- Liquid Colorants: Blue and Pink
- Glitter, for mixing and sprinkling
- Unicorn Fragrance Oil
Split the batch into three parts, making one larger than the other two parts. Then mix in 3 drops at a time of pink colorant and a teaspoon of glitter into one of the smaller batch parts. Repeat with the other small part and blue colorant.
Then add all parts into your containers and lightly swirl until you achieve the look you want. Finish it off with a sprinkle of glitter.
Sea Foam Sugar Scrub Whip
You will need:
- Foaming Sugar Scrub recipe from above.
- Liquid Colorant: Blue
- Coarse Bath Salts
- Sea Mist Fragrance Oil
Separate the batch into two parts. Add a few drops of the blue colorant to one of the parts and mix well. Alternate the uncolored scrub and the blue scrub when filling it into your containers. Then add the course bath salts to the top of the scrub. *optional* Make Melt & Pour soap seashells to add on the top. For a pearlescent finish buff magic mauve onto the face of the soap. This will give a shiny shell effect to the soap.
Dark Matter Cleansing Scrub
You will need:
- Foaming Sugar Scrub recipe listed above.
- Binchotan Activated Charcoal
- Small amount of any oil (Enough to dissolve the charcoal)
- Black Code Fragrance Oil
First, dissolve the charcoal into the oil of your choice until it’s as dark as ink. Then add the charcoal mixture with your fragrance oil. Add as much or as little until you get the shade of grey you need.
