Pink Lemonade Lip Scrub Recipe

Ingredients:

.75 oz. refined cocoa butter
.25 oz. emulsifying wax
.75 oz. sunflower oil or sweet almond oil
4.5 oz. white granulated sugar
1/8th teaspoon candy apple red crystal mica powder
.15 oz. sweetened pink lemonade flavor oil

Instructions:

You will begin by using a digital scale to weigh out the cocoa butter and emulsifying wax into a heat safe container.  (I used a 2 cup glass Pyrex measuring cup.) Heat in either a double boiler or in the microwave at 50% power until melted.

Next, weigh out the sunflower (or sweet almond) oil and stir it into the melted butter and wax.

Follow with the pink lemonade flavor oil, weighing it then stirring into the liquid oil, butter and wax.

Now weigh out the sugar into a separate container.

Measure out the candy apple red mica powder (or similar lip safe mica) and mix it into the sugar with a fork until the color is evenly distributed.

Pour the colored sugar into the liquid ingredients and mix thoroughly with a fork.

Divide the pink lemonade lip scrub equally between two 2.3 oz. clear glass thick wall cosmetic jars with black lined caps or similar. (I got my jars from SKS Bottle & Packaging here.)

Then screw the caps on the jars and label as desired for personal use or gifting.

If you’re planning to make my pink lemonade lip scrub recipe to sell, then you’ll need to label them according to FDA guidelines. If you are unsure about labeling laws then I highly recommend the book, Soap and Cosmetic Labeling: How to Follow the Rules and Regs Explained in Plain English, by Marie Gale.

DIY Beauty - How to Make Homemade Lip Scrub and Body Butter using anti-oxidant rich cranberry butter plus a DIY Kit Giveway

If you’ve been dying to make your own homemade lip balms for a while, but haven’t yet taken the plunge, now’s your chance! Wholesale Supplies Plus, one of my favorite bath and beauty suppliers for many years, has a wonderfully easy Cranberry Lip Scrub and Body Butter Craft Kit! It comes with everything you need to make ten fabulous homemade cranberry lip scrubs and five jars of cranberry body butter. I was lucky enough to get to try out this simple to execute kit for myself and found the steps to be easy to follow even for novice crafters. And for right around $37 (includes shipping) this kit is an affordable way to enjoy an afternoon craft night with your family, make favors for an upcoming event or even craft your own products to sell.

I was especially excited to try Wholesale Supplies Plus’ cranberry body butter that comes with this kit as to contains not only a blend of some of my favorite ingredients – shea butter and jojoba oil, but it also contains Cranberry Fruit which is packed with anti-oxidants. However, as the cranberry body butter – and the resulting products this kit creates – are unscented, I added a few extras to make it a little more fun. You can feel free to customize your lip scrubs and butters with your favorite scents and flavors or leave the rich and luxurious cranberry butter fragrance free to accommodate those who may have allergies.

To make your own cranberry lip scrubs and body butters, follow the instructions below or visit Wholesale Supplies Plus’ Lotion and Skin Care Library for the original version of the recipe.

DIY Pistachio Macaron Body Butter Recipe and Flavored Lip Scrub

DIY Flavored Lip Scrub and Scented Body Butter Recipe

Ingredients:

1 lb. Crafter’s Choice™ Cranberry Butter Blend
1.5 oz. white cane sugar
4 ml flavor oil of choice (optional)
.3 oz. fragrance oil of choice (optional)

(Or buy the kit here.)

Instructions:

You’ll need a digital kitchen scale for this project, a microwave, ten oval lip balm tubes, 5-6 3 oz. low profile jars with lids, a few plastic droppers, spoons for mixing and a beaker or glass pyrex measuring cup.

How to Make a Natural Cranberry Lip Scrub - Simple Beauty DIY

I really love the little beaker that comes with this kit as it makes pouring lip balms super easy and mess free. To get started, weigh out 1.25 oz. of the cranberry body butter into the beaker, then melt in the microwave. It took about 50 seconds for my batch to melt. Once it melts, measure out three Tablespoons (approximately 1.5 oz.) of white cane sugar and stir into the melted butter. If you want to use a flavor oil for your lip scrub like I did, use a plastic pipette or dropper to measure out up to 4 ml of flavor oil and stir into the mixture. I used 2 ml of a chocolate flavor oil and 2 ml of a strawberry flavor oil to make a chocolate strawberry lip scrub! Alternately if you prefer a lip balm rather than a scrub, simply omit the sugar.

This plastic beaker makes pouring lip balms a snap!

Allow the mixture to set for several minutes and thicken slightly then stir again to distribute the sugar evenly through the melted butter. Then slowly pour the mixture into each of your lip balm tubes. To prevent air bubbles, lightly tap each lip balm tube lightly halfway through then fill each tube with the remaining mixture.

Once your lip balms have completely cooled, simply cap and label. For gifts I thought these looked super cute decorated with washi tape and little labels that I made in Open Office. (Download a variety of printable labels for this project here.) To use, gently rub the scrub over lips to help remove dead skin cells, then rinse with warm water and follow with your favorite lip balm. (If you added a flavor oil try not to eat it!)

DIY Homemade Cranberry Body Butter Recipe

To make your body butters place the remaining cranberry butter into a large glass pyrex measuring cup or bowl and melt in the microwave until almost fully melted. Remove, then stir to complete the process. (This will help to prevent the cranberry fruit from settling to the bottom.) I wanted to scent my body butter, so I also stirred in .3 oz. (by weight) of Pistachio Macaron Fragrance Oil.

Once you’ve mixed in your fragrance, if desired, pour into your low profile jars. (The kit recommended filling five jars evenly with product, however, I found I had enough to actually fill six.) Allow to cool, then screw on the lid and label. Again, washi tape is a simple and easy choice for decorating your jars! (Download printable labels for this project here.)
