Layered Meringue Sugar Scrub 3


After reading the title, you may be wondering how a dessert can become a scrub. I’m looking to make a scrub that will give a bubbly top layer that looks just like a meringue.

Before I continue with the recipe, what is a meringue? A meringue is a dessert made from whipped egg whites and sugar. The majority of meringues are flavored with vanilla, almond, or coconut. Meringues are made in several different ways, depending on their final use, whether it is used in a main dish or a dessert.

Collect needed supplies:
Oil of your choice (I’m using Colorless Jojoba)
Extra Thick Shower Gel
Sugar
Fragrance Oil of your choice (I’m using Tahitian Vanilla Fragrance Oil)
Transfer Pipettes
Scale
Mixing Bowl
Mixing Spoon
Hand Mixer
Containers for the final product

Recipe in Percentages:
10% Colorless Jojoba
20% Extra Thick Shower Gel
70% sugar
Tahitian Vanilla Fragrance Oil, at preferred fragrance percentage.
Lemon Yellow Color, a few drops to color

Recipe in grams (Makes 200 grams or 7 ounces):
20 grams Colorless Jojoba
40 grams Extra Thick Shower Gel
140 grams sugar
1 mL Tahitian Vanilla Fragrance Oil
2 drops Lemon Yellow Color

Weigh the Colorless Jojoba and Extra Thick Shower Gel into a mixing bowl that can fit the beaters of the hand mixer. Beat the Colorless Jojoba and Extra Thick Shower Gel until you have a white foamy cream. Add the Tahitian Vanilla Fragrance Oil and Lemon Yellow Color and fold into the cream. Once everything in the bowl is completely mixed, stir in the sugar. After the sugar has been incorporated, fill your final product containers.

Allow to sit for 4 hours for the separation to occur. Once the separation has occurred, the scrub is ready to give away.

Instructions for use:
Open jar and gently mix layers together. Once layers have been mixed, apply to damp skin and scrub in a circular motion. Rinse off with warm water. Daily use is not recommended.

Enjoy!

About Andee

I'm a twenty something soap snob. I've grown up with hand made soaps and I love them! I really like making lotions, soaps and perfumes. I adore mixing scents to come up with something new. My favorite scent is either Wicked or Cotton Candy. I tend to hoard fragrances, I even have an Earl Grey Tea from the MMS catalog. I won't tell you how old it is, but it sure is good!

      It will separate again, but I think that is part of the fun. The bubbles will gradually disappear, but I have found even with a larger jar (16 oz) that I use the scrub before all the bubbles are gone. I love this scrub for a foot scrub.
