Exfoliating Whipped Sugar Scrub Recipe

© Rebecca D. Dillon

Ingredients:

13 oz. white granulated sugar
6 oz. ultra refined high melt point shea butter
.75 oz. refined cocoa butter
.5 oz. jojoba oil
.5 oz. fractionated coconut oil
.5 oz. emulsifying wax
.5 oz. lagoon green jojoba beads
.2 oz. aloe vera oil
1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum powder
.2 oz. fragrance oil or .1 oz. essential oil

Instructions:

Using a digital scale weigh out the shea butter, cocoa butter and  emulsifying wax. Heat in a double boiler until melted. (Alternately you can also heat in a large glass Pyrex container in the microwave at 50% power.)

Next weigh out the jojoba oil, fractionated coconut oil and aloe vera oil. (Please note that fractionated coconut oil is not the same as regular coconut oil and it is always liquid at room temperature or colder. In addition aloe vera oil is not the same thing as aloe vera gel. It’s actually an oil.)

Add the oils to the double boiler and stir well to combine.

Remove from heat and measure out the xanthan gum powder. Whisk into the melted butter mixture until it dissolves.

Now weigh out your fragrance of choice and stir into the melted body butter mixture.

A great scent choice for essential oils is equal parts lemongrass essential oil and peppermint essential oil with just a “splash” of lime peel essential oil. Or if a fragrance oil is preferred, I really love a limoncello fragrance oil for spring!

Allow the mixture to cool until it begins to get cloudy. (You can speed this process up by placing your melted ingredients in the refrigerator for a short amount of time.)

To make the whipped body butter soufflé recipe:

Then, if you are making the whipped body butter soufflé, pour the melted mixture into your mixing bowl and whip until your body butter reaches the desired consistency. I highly recommend a stand mixer for this step as it can take a while.

Once your whipped body butter soufflé has a creamy, marshmallow fluff like texture it can be spooned into your jars. (You should be able to hold a spoon of the whipped body butter upside down without it dripping off.) This recipe will yield two 8 oz. whipped body souffles.

To use, apply sparingly as a little goes a long way. Once your skin absorbs the body butter souffle, it will not feel greasy or tacky and you will really be able to feel the hydration that it locks in. For this reason I loved this product on my hands and feet – but feel free to use it anywhere you like.

If you are scenting your whipped body butter soufflé with essential oils or lip safe fragrance oils, this feels AMAZING on lips too!

To make the exfoliating whipped sugar scrub recipe:

If you are making the whipped sugar scrub, once your melted oils have cooled, weigh out the jojoba beads and the sugar and combine with the melted body butter mixture in your mixing bowl. Whip until the sugar scrub reaches desired consistency or until it holds onto your whisk or a spoon without dropping off.

Now spoon or pipe your whipped sugar scrub into your containers. My whipped sugar scrub recipe yields approximately four 8 oz. jars.

To use, scoop out desired amount and massage onto wet skin in the bath or shower as desired. Rinse off then pat dry.

Sal Butter Sugar Scrub Recipe

This natural sal butter sugar scrub recipe is perfect for those looking for a skin nourishing scrub but are sensitive or allergic to shea butter. It also contains healing neem oil and is naturally colored and scented.

This natural sal butter sugar scrub recipe creates a natural, nourishing scrub suited for those sensitive to or allergic to shea butter. It also contains healing neem oil and coconut oil and is naturally colored and scented.

I scented my sal butter sugar scrub recipe with lemongrass essential oil for its fresh, energizing fragrance and used a pinch of turmeric to give my scrub a lovely yellow tint.

Why sal butter?

Apparently, as I’ve discovered, people with latex allergies and sensitivities are often also allergic to shea butter. Sal butter makes a wonderful substitution. Like shea butter, sal butter is a superb moisturizer and is believed to help with various skin disorders such as acne, eczema and psoriasis. It can also help to reduce skin inflammation. And unlike shea, it stays smooth and creamy, never grainy.

Why neem oil?

Neem oil is a carrier oil that I’ve found to have significant healing properties and many applications for use in both skin care and hair care products. Used both medicinally and cosmetically for hundreds of years, neem oil is naturally anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal and possesses moisturizing and regenerative properties. In addition it also has anti-inflammatory and analgesic (pain killing) properties and contains both vitamin E and essential fatty acids.

First used in India in 2000-4000BC, neem oil is a key herb used in Ayurvedic and Unani medicine. Neem oil is commonly used topically to treat rheumatism, eczema, ringworm, athlete’s foot, cold sores, psoriasis, warts, chronic syphilitic sores, infected burn wounds, and slow-healing skin ulcers. It has also been show to help control various skin infections including scabies and candida.

Natural Sal Butter Sugar Scrub Recipe

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen

Ingredients:

2 oz. sal butter
1.5 oz. refined coconut oil
1 oz. cocoa butter
.25 oz. neem oil
10.25 oz. granulated white sugar
.05 oz. – .1 oz.  lemongrass essential oil to suit (or .15 oz. fragrance oil)
pinch of turmeric to suit

 Instructions:

Using a digital scale begin by weighing out the cocoa butter and sal butter. Heat in either a double boiler or in a large glass Pyrex measuring cup at reduced power in a microwave until melted.

Next, weigh out the coconut oil and stir into the melted butters until it melts.

Weigh out and stir in the neem oil and essential oil.

Weigh the sugar, then slowly pour the sugar into the melted oil and butters, mixing with a fork as you go, until all the sugar is completely incorporated. Add a pinch of turmeric, if desired, for color. Mix well until the color evens out.

Now simply scoop your sugar scrub into your container(s) of choice. (Mine is pictured in a an 8 oz. plastic (BPA free) low profile jar. My sal butter sugar scrub recipe will fill approximately three of these if the recipe is doubled.)

This foaming salt scrub recipe is super easy to make and can be customized with your favorite scent! Just melt, pour and mix ingredients for a foaming salt scrub that gently exfoliates as it lathers and cleanses like soap!

This simple homemade nut free soap recipe contains zero nut oils so even those with nut allergies can enjoy this classically scented lemon poppyseed soap. While coconut oil traditionally boosts lather in homemade cold process soap recipes, this nut free soap recipe instead uses palm kernel flakes which has similar lather boosting properties. In addition it also incorporates less costly ingredients for those who are soaping on a budget.

This homemade nut free soap recipe contains zero nut oils so even those with nut allergies can enjoy this classically scented lemon poppyseed soap.

Lemon & Poppyseed Nut Free Soap Recipe

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen

Ingredients:

9 oz. palm kernel flakes
10.8 oz. palm oil
14.4 oz. rice bran oil
1.8 oz. castor oil

11.8 oz. distilled water
4.9 oz. lye/sodium hydroxide

1.1 oz. lemongrass essential oil
1 teaspoon turmeric root powder
1 teaspoon poppy seeds

Soap Notes:

Water as % of oils=33%
7% superfat

This nut free soap recipe will yield 10-12 bars of soap approximately 4 oz. each depending on how they are cut and fits inside my DIY wooden loaf soap mold.

You can substitute palm kernel oil for the palm kernel flakes in this homemade soap recipe without having to make adjustments to the amount of lye needed. You can also substitute pomace olive oil for all or half of the rice bran oil if desired. You won’t need to run this nut free soap recipe back through a lye calculator if you aren’t resizing the batch or changing it in anyway. However, if you are resizing the batch for any reason, be sure to run the numbers back through a lye calculator.

The turmeric powder in this homemade soap recipe is used for a natural color to give the soap more of a yellow pop of color. It is optional. The lemongrass essential oil does make this soap yellow on it’s own, it’s just not as deep of a yellow color.

Instructions:

To make this natural lemon and poppyseed nut free soap recipe, you’ll need to follow your basic cold process soapmaking method instructions. (If you’ve never made cold process soap before here’s another good, inexpensive beginner’s cold process soap recipe you can try.) Be sure to take all proper safety precautions when working with lye including goggles and gloves.

Begin by measuring out the distilled water in fluid ounces. Pour into a heat safe pitcher. Next, using a digital scale weigh out the lye. Slowly pour the lye into the water in a well ventilated area and stir until all the lye has dissolved. Set aside to cool.

Now weigh out the palm kernel flakes, palm oil, rice bran oil and castor oil using a digital scale and combine in a stainless steel pot. Heat until melted, then remove from heat and set aside.

Next weigh out the lemongrass essential oil and set aside. Use a measuring spoon to measure out the turmeric powder and poppy seeds and set these aside as well until you’re ready to make your soap.

Once the lye-water and soapmaking oils have cooled to around 90°-95°F you’re ready to make this nut free soap recipe.

Add the turmeric powder to the soapmaking oils and mix with a stick blender until fully incorporated.

Now you’ll slowly pour the lye-water into the soapmaking oils. Mix with a stick blender until you reach a light trace, then add the essential oil and poppy seeds. Mix again until the soap starts to thicken again and all ingredients are fully blended into the soap, then pour the soap into your prepared mold.

Palm oil tends to trace quickly as well as heat up a lot, so I didn’t cover this soap once it was poured into the mold.

This homemade nut free soap recipe contains zero nut oils so even those with nut allergies can enjoy this classically scented lemon poppyseed soap.

After 24 hours your can unmold your homemade nut free soap loaf and cut it into bars. Allow your soaps to cure 4-6 weeks before use, then wrap and label as desired.
