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!

    YUM! I just picked up some jars and those little wooden scoops this week end. I have all the ingredients/subs on hand and, would you believe, I have TIME to make these. This couldn’t have happened at a better time! THANKS!!!

    OR ~ Warm Vanilla Sugar FO ~ oh yummm!!

    I spent about 4 hours yesterday looking through my recipes looking for that perfect Sugar Scrub. This is the one I’m going to make!

    Is this scrub stiff? I have your 8 oz Malibu Tubes with the .375 tops, do you think this scrub would work in this container? I try to stay away from jars, you know, dipping wet fingers into a scrub over and over again. Even though I package my scrubs with your clear little spatulas – they tend to get lost for some reason…OR, as one family member told me – it’s quicker to just use my fingers!! I really love your Malibu Tubes!

    TIA ;o)

      Kathy,
      This scrub is fairly stiff, so I imagine that it will work in the Grand Oval Bottles. I think the biggest problem you will have with this is filling the tubes. I’m not sure how you will do this since the scrub is so thick.

    Yum! Your Vanilla Hazelnut fragrance is one of my favorites! I use it all the time to fragrance my whipped shea butters. This sounds like a great recipe too!

    I have a question on the LiquaPar – if I am making this recipe as part of a “Spa Party” do I need the preservative? I would be showing the guests how to make it, and then they would take it home with them. Also, could I use Mango or Shea butter instead of the Macadamia Nut butter?

    Thanks,

    Kathy

      The reason we include a preservative is because people put their hands in the scrub and there is potential to introduce some water into the mix. You don’t have to add the preservative but we would ask that you request each guest to treat the scrub like yogurt: use a clean spoon each time to remove the amount of product you desire, and to never introduce the hands into the product.

      You can use any desired butter to replace the Macadamia Nut Butter such as Mango, Shea, Acai, Hemp, Soy, or Almond Butters. You get my point, any butter that is not brittle at room temperature is a great candidate for this recipe. Play around and experiment with different ingredients.

    Guess what I got when I opened my latest order? Yep, a sample of this sugar scrub! I liked the consistency and texture, the vanilla bean grounds add a little extra exfoliation, and you do need to rinse well or you will find them on your skin after toweling off — like I did! LOL People with very dry skin will love how emollient this scrub is!

    For packaging in Grand Ovals, I would add extra macadamia nut oil (so it won’t be so stiff); pour the whole batch into a ZipLock; make a small snip in the corner and pipe into the tubes. Use a toilet paper roll to hold the container upright — leaves both hands free to squeeze the stuffing out of the bag.

    THANKS, ANDEE!

    Thank you Andee! This scrub is sooo nice!

    I made it yesterday but I added an additional 28 grams of Mac Oil to it so that I could package the scrub in your Grand Ovals… Forget it! When you said this was a THICK scrub – you meant it – LOL!! I tried and tried to get it into the grand ovals – to no avail. I tried a funnel – well it just sat in the funnel – no way was it going to slide down into the bottle! Then I tried Zany’s suggestion with the Ziploc – if it were a little thinner, this would have worked. But what happened is it blew a bigger hole in the Ziploc – what a mess I made!! I did have some squat jars (thankfully!) so I went ahead and packaged it that way.

    I wonder – if we reversed the Mac Butter and Mac Oil weights, if that might work..?? But I’m afraid it would be one of those Scrubs you have to stir before use. That would be too hard in a Grand Oval…

    Moral of the story ~ leave well enough alone! It is a wonderful scrub – AS IS ;o) Oh, I used your Warm Vanilla Sugar FO – man o man! It is lovely! The only problem with mine is it doesn’t look like yours, LOL!! The FO and ground Vanilla Beans turned mine a deep brown…looks like I used brown sugar instead of white!

    Thank you again! This was a quick and easy gift to make!

    I made this scrub today, substituting Mango Butter for the Macadamia Nut Butter, and Natural Vanilla Oil for the fragrance oil. I ommitted the LiquaPar, and added a bit more Macadamia Nut Oil since it was too thick. This is an awesome scrub, it leaves your skin so nice and soft after you use it, as well as super moisturized. Thanks for this recipe!

    Just want everyone to know this Sugar Scrub was a BIG hit with my family at Christmas! I packaged it in 8 oz squat jars, crystal spatula and a 3 oz plastic cup. This way they can scoop out what they might need/want and take it into the shower with them. Even though I used a preservative, I’m always leery of what the end user is doing with it…sticking their fingers in it, over and over again – in the shower…or even a worse case scenario – they leave it in the shower without the lid…maybe I’m just paranoid – LOL!

    Even my mom loved it! She’s not a big Scrub person, so that really says alot!! She recently underwent a drastic surgery, so when she saw the little plastic cup…she said “oh, a pee cup?” No mom – read the label! Too funny!

    Thanks again for this wonderful recipe – it’s going in my permanent file!

    I just ordered the macadamia butter and oil to make this scrub, can’t wait to try it. Can you tell me exactly how it is used. Is it for hands, feet or body? Do you soap up first and then apply the scrub and rinse? Do you just use your hands to apply the scrub? I want to use it myself, and be able to tell those I give it to how to use it.

    Thanks,
    Terry
