27 oz. white granulated sugar
9 oz. safflower oil
.45 oz. rose fragrance oil, of choice or 25 drops of rose absolute
dried red roses or dried whole rosebuds, to suit
To make this DIY rose sugar scrub, begin by using a digital scale to weigh out the sugar.
Next, add rose petals to suit, mixing them in with the sugar until they evenly distributed.
In a separate container, weigh out the safflower oil.
If using a fragrance oil, weigh out the fragrance and mix it into the safflower oil. (You can also any other skin safe fragrance oil that you’d like.) If you’re using rose absolute, add 25 drops instead. Rose absolute is pretty potent, so a little will go a long way.
Now pour the sugar and rose mixture into the scented oil and mix thoroughly.
Evenly fill three 8 oz. jars with your rose sugar scrub. I used the 8 oz.Black PET PCR Jars with Black Smooth Lined Caps from SKS Bottle & Packaging specifically for this project. You can find them here.
How to Label Your DIY Rose Sugar Scrub
All that’s left is to label for jars for gifting! For my labels I purchased feather clipart from Huckleberry Hearts on Etsy, then used a Word program to create my labels. (Learn how to create your own custom labels with my step-by-step tutorial here.) Then simply print your newly created labels onto label sheets – I get mine from World Label – and apply to your jars.
If you’re making your DIY rose sugar scrub to sell (for small commercial use) and want to use the same clipart as I have but without credit, you would need to purchase a commercial license from the creator.
You’ll also want to make sure you label your rose sugar scrubs appropriately to meet state and federal laws. If you’re unsure about the rules and regulations regarding labeling cosmetics, I highly recommend the book, Soap and Cosmetic Labeling: How to Follow the Rules and Regs Explained in Plain English, by Marie Gale.
