Summer Beauty Recipe Inspiration

I grew up on trips to Myrtle beach every summer until I was sixteen. Most of those years, we saved money by camping out in a campground. Not only did it give me a greater appreciation for the outdoors, I also learned that you should ALWAYS wear flip flops when using a campground shower. (Thanks, Mom!)

One of my favorite things about staying on a beach campground was the lack of hotels. Sure, there were lots of people, but there were no hotels to mar the skyline. Just beach and plants and trees. It was easy to make daily discoveries of beautiful shells, sand dollars, tiny crabs and clams in the sand.

Much like my early adventures in a hometown creek that fed into our river, I always tried to take at least one of my live discoveries home with me. While at home, I tried to create a habitat for crawdads I caught. At the beach, I took baby clams and other small (yet to be identified) creatures home in a bucket of sand and water.

Being that Myrtle Beach is a good 8-9 hour drive from my home in Virginia, these tiny sea creatures never managed to survive the trip. However that didn’t stop me from trying. Being the stubborn girl that I was (and still am apparently) I tried again year after year, until the camping trips ended. My parents, probably in their wisdom to never argue with a strong willed little girl over something so simple, never protested. Although I’m not sure how they DIDN’T looking back. An eight hour drive in an old school Dodge van with zero air conditioning and sea water left quite the lingering aroma.

Making Beach Themed Seashell Soaps

My DIY seashell soaps are a nod to those carefree summer beach trips of days past. They are reminiscent of time spent outdoors in the sun and sand. Long days hunting for seashells and mysterious creatures hidden just under the sand as the waves roll in and onto the beach.

What makes this summer beauty soap project so easy?

Made using a melt and pour soap base, this soap making tutorial incorporates pre-made soap embeds into the recipe. This eliminates some of the challenges that come with working with embeds as a beginning soapmaker. It also saves you money, as you’ll only need one soap making mold for this soap tutorial. This helps reduce the otherwise more expensive costs of investing in multiple soap making molds. There’s also no need to work with lye. So if you’re still not ready to make cold process soap, then this soap making project is perfect for you!

Beautiful melt and pour seashell soap embeds for making creative DIY beach soaps for summer.

Save on materials & time by purchasing pre-made elements for your summer beauty recipes.

While you can make your own melt and pour soap embeds for my beach soaps, this can be challenging and time consuming. Therefore I chose to use pre-made seashell soap embeds that I purchased from a fellow soapmaker. I used seashell soap embeds that I purchased from Spruce Mountain Soap to make this soap making project both simpler and faster.

My seashell soap is the perfect summer beauty recipe for cleansing your skin on hot summer days. Made with a blend of fresh litsea cubeba and peppermint essentials oils, these fun beach inspired soaps help to brighten and energize dull skin. Discover my summer soap making tutorial and recipe below. And don’t forget to check out the other summer beauty recipes for everything from an aloe vera face mask to mermaid fizzing bath salts after the recipe!

Making Your Own Whipped Sugar Scrubs

Now that you’ve tried – and fallen head over heels for – the awesomeness that is the whipped sugar scrub, why not try your hand at making your own?

I’ve found that a lot of the simple recipes that whipped sugar scrubs call for include coconut oil. It’s important to note, that while coconut oil does have some amazing skin care properties, it also rates pretty high on the comedogenic chart. What this means is that it’s likely to clog pores in most people which in turn can lead to acne.

Additionally, I find that straight up coconut oil irritates my dry skin. If this has been your experience as well, you can easily substitute the coconut oil in any of these whipped sugar scrub recipes with babassu oil.

While coconut oil rates a 4 on the comedogenic chart, babassu oil is a low-comedogenic oil with a rating of only 2 – meaning it won’t clog pores for most people. It also works as a mild moisturizer that calms and soothes all skin types, whether you’re acne prone or suffer from skin conditions like eczema or dry skin.

What are the Other Skin Care Benefits Babassu Oil?

Babassu oil has many of the same properties to regular coconut oil. Like coconut oil, babassu oil is semi-solid at room temperature with a melting point around body temperature – slightly higher than coconut oils own 76°F melt point. A great substitute for those with coconut allergies, this mild moisturizer also won’t leave skin feeling oily or greasy and it works great in hair too.

In addition babassu oil contains a high amount of skin beneficial fatty acids including lauric, stearic, myristic, palmitic and oleic acid. It’s also rich in vitamin E, a natural antioxidant, and has anti-inflammatory properties. It’s a wonderful choice for an itchy scalp or dry skin and hair. (Learn more about using babassu oil for hair care here.)

You can learn more about common carrier oils and where they rank on the comedogenic chart at the Holistic Health Herbalist here. Also be sure to check out my other skin care recipes that contain babassu oil here.

This foaming oat body scrub recipe is homemade with skin soothing oat butter, tamanu oil and frankincense essential oil.

Tamanu oil specifically possesses a variety of properties useful in skin care applications. It is a powerful anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antifungal, antibacterial and analgesic carrier oil. Additionally tamanu oil is also rich in antioxidants and is a wonderful moisturizer.

Because of this, tamanu oil has been traditionally used as a natural home remedy to promote the healing of minor wounds and abrasions, insect bites and sunburns. It’s also beneficial in relieving bothersome skin conditions such as acne, psoriasis, dry or scaly skin, and eczema.

Ingredients:

11 oz.Crafter’s Choice foaming bath whip (or similar)
4 oz. oat butter (or another hydrogenated butter)
.5 oz. tamanu oil
.5 oz. cocoa butter
.3 oz. emulsifying wax
.2 oz. frankincense essential oil
20 oz. granulated white sugar

Instructions:

You will need a digital scale to weigh all of the ingredients for my foaming oat body scrub recipe.

Being by weighing out the cocoa butter and emulsifying wax. Combine in a large 8 cup glass Pyrex measuring cup or glass bowl. Heat the wax and cocoa butter in the microwave at 40% power until melted. Alternately you may also use a double boiler.

Weigh out the frankincense essential oil and mix into the ingredients using a hand blender.

(If you’d like to learn more about frankincense essential oil, including the difference between the four main types of frankincense, be sure to check out my rose body butter recipe here.)

Once all of the wet ingredients are thoroughly combined you can add the sugar.

Slowly add the sugar mixing with a hand blender until all of the sugar is evenly distributed throughout. When the sugar is well incorporated into your oat body scrub, you are ready to pour the scrub into containers.

Evenly fill three 9 oz. clear straight sided glass jars with silver metal lug caps with your foaming oat body scrub. (I got my containers from SKS Bottle & Packaging here.)

Oat Body Scrub Recipe! This foaming oat body scrub recipe is handmade with skin soothing oat butter, tamanu oil and frankincense essential oil. Both frankincense and tamanu oil are purported to have anti-aging skin care properties and are therefore used in a variety of products that help to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Allow your body scrub to fully cool, then screw on the lug caps and label as desired for gifting or personal use.

If you’d like to sell the scrubs you create using my foaming oat body scrub recipe, then you’ll need to label your product so that it meets FDA guidelines. If you’re unsure about the rules and regulations regarding labeling, I highly recommend the book, Soap and Cosmetic Labeling: How to Follow the Rules and Regs Explained in Plain English, by Marie Gale.

Crafted using the exact same recipe as my rainbow colored moldable sugar scrub, both my bunny and chick spring sugar scrubs can be made using the same batch of my moldable semi-solid sugar scrub “dough.” Simply make a batch, then divide it as needed for the number of colors you want.

In my case, I used a combo of colors for a purple-gray for my bunny butts and yellow for my Easter chicks. The simple details are then painted on using micas and isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol.

You can pre-make the “dough” base for these spring sugar scrubs then create the shapes and paint on the details with your kids or grandkids for a craft afternoon filled with fun!

DIY Spring Sugar Scrubs

© Rebecca D. Dillon

Ingredients:

.75 oz. refined cocoa butter
6 oz. ultra refined shea butter
1 oz. extra virgin chia seed oil
.75 oz. emulsifying wax
.5 oz. xanthan gum powder
.15 oz. castor oil
.35 oz. vegetable glycerin
.75 oz. Stephenson’s Natural SLS Free Melt and Pour Soap Base
.05 oz. kaolin clay (white cosmetic clay)
16 oz. granulated white sugar
.25 oz. essential oil or .4 oz. fragrance oil, of choice
liquid melt & pour soap colors and/or skin safe mica powders, to suit

Instructions:

You will need a digital scale to weigh the ingredients for my DIY spring sugar scrubs. I recommend this Baker’s Math Scale if you plan to make a lot of bath, body or soap recipes.

Begin by weighing out the cocoa butter, shea butter and emulsifying wax into a large glass Pyrex measuring cup or similar. Heat at 50% power in a microwave until melted. (Alternately you may also use a double boiler.)

Weigh out the melt and pour soap base and cut into small chunks. Stir into the melted butters and wax until melted. You can reheat if necessary to continue melting the soap base.

While these ingredients are still hot, weigh out the xanthan gum powder and whisk into the melted ingredients until it has dissolved.

Next, you’ll weigh out the remaining oils and glycerin. Combine the chia seed oil, castor oil, essential or fragrance oil and vegetable glycerin in the bowl with the previously melted ingredients and stir well.

In a separate container, weigh out the kaolin clay and sugar. Mix to combine.

Now pour the clay and sugar mixture into the liquid ingredients and mix well.

Set the mixture aside until it starts to thicken then remix with a spoon or spatula.

Now mix the sugar scrub mixture using a KitchenAid stand mixer as it continues to thicken.

You can place the sugar scrub mixture in the refrigerator to speed up the cooling process if desired.

Once the mixture begins to look white and a little fluffy – kind of like marshmallow fluff – remove the mixing bowl from the stand mixer base and place it briefly in the fridge.

When sugar scrub starts to feel as if it’s hardening, remove it from the refrigerator.

Remix the sugar scrub mixture with your hands. Your body heat will make the sugar scrub pliable sort of like Play-doh.

You’re now ready to create your bunny and chick spring sugar scrubs!

You’ll start by dividing the sugar scrub “dough” into the number of colors you’d like to use. Working with one ball of sugar scrub “dough” at a time, add the colorant(s) to the first sugar scrub “dough” a little at a time. Knead well to incorporate the color in between adding the colorant. Once you’ve reached the color you want, repeat with any additional sugar scrub “dough” and colorants.

In this instance I colored half of my sugar scrub “dough” yellow for the little chick spring sugar scrubs and a combination of colors for the bunny butts to create a purplish-gray.

Learn how to make your own fun DIY spring sugar scrubs in bunny and chick shapes for Easter! Made from a moldable semi-solid sugar scrub, these spring sugar scrubs are fun both in and out of the tub!

Now divide the yellow colored sugar scrub “dough” into palm sized or smaller chunks and roll them into balls.

Do the same for the bunny butts, but leave some left over scrub off to the side. Once you’ve rolled out the balls for the bunny butts, roll out several smaller balls for the bunny tails and two more small balls for each of the bunny butts.

Roll the balls for the bunny feet on a flat surface until they are slightly oblong, then gently press flat.

Press the bunny feet onto the bottom of the large balls you created as your bunny butts. If you’re worried about the feet sticking during transport or if you’re gifting your spring sugar scrubs, simply dip the bottoms of the bunny feet into a small amount of melted natural melt and pour soap base and use it to adhere the components of your bunny together.

Now dip each sphere you created for the bunny tails into skin safe glitter or mica. I used Super Sparkles mica powder for my bunny tails. Then adhere the tails to your bunny butts as photographed above the bunny feet.

Set both the chick and the bunny spring sugar scrubs aside to harden back up. You can of course speed up this process by placing them in the fridge.

Once your bunny and chick sugar scrubs are nice and firm you’re ready to paint on the designs! This is done in basically the same way I painted on the micas for my DIY mermaid soaps!

You will use micas to paint the details your spring sugar scrubs. Grab a small container for each color you want to use to paint your scrubs.

Add a small amount of mica to each container followed by a small amount of isopropyl alcohol. As you want bold colors, use as little alcohol as possible to dampen the mica just enough that you can smoothly spread it with a small paintbrush.

To paint on the bunny feet simply paint one large circle in a contrasting color to your bunny’s color at the top of the bottoms of all the bunny feet. Then also paint three small circles on the bottoms of all the feet. Let them dry and your spring bunny sugar scrubs are done!

To make your chick sugar scrubs it’s pretty much the same deal and also super easy. Paint two small circles for eyes – or use candy eyes like I did for my DIY poop emoji bubble bars – and then paint on triangles for each of their beaks! Let them dry and now your spring chick sugar scrubs are complete!

Now all you need to do is package your spring sugar scrubs in large 16 oz. clear PET (BPA free) jars or wrap tightly in food service film and label as desired.

To use simply scoop or tear off desired amount from a chick or bunny and massage onto wet skin as you would a solid sugar scrub cube.

If you’d like to sell these chick and bunny spring sugar scrubs for Easter, be sure to follow FDA guidelines for labeling your product. 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.

By now most of us have seen the hilarious Squatty Potty YouTube video portraying unicorns pooping rainbow ice cream. And Rosanna Pansino making those super cute, unicorn rainbow poop cookies on her YouTube channel here. (I LOVE her cookbook, Nerdy Nummies!) Well, my moldable rainbow sugar scrub recipe is inspired by these amazing representations of unicorns doing their thing! I hope you have as much fun making this project it as I did! After all, everyone knows unicorns poop rainbows!

My shimmering moldable rainbow sugar scrub recipe combines primarily natural ingredients so it’s suitable for even sensitive skin. One of these ingredients is extra virgin chia seed oil. With natural anti-inflammatory benefits, chia seed oil also helps to hydrate skin, improve elasticity, and encourage regeneration of skin cells. It is suitable for all skin types, but is especially wonderful for dry, sensitive, and maturing skin.

A treat for both kids and adults at bath time, my unicorn inspired moldable rainbow sugar scrub recipe creates a unique product that’s great for gifting. After all, everyone needs a little sparkle in their life from time to time!

.75 oz. Stephenson’s Natural SLS Free Melt and Pour Soap Base
.05 oz. kaolin clay (white cosmetic clay)
16 oz. granulated white sugar
.25 oz. essential oil or .4 oz. fragrance oil, of choice
6  different liquid melt & pour soap colors or skin safe mica powders, to suit
Super Sparkles mica powder, to suit

Instructions:

You will need a digital scale to weigh the ingredients for my moldable rainbow sugar scrub recipe. I recommend this Baker’s Math Scale if you plan to make a lot of bath, body or soap recipes.

In addition, you will also need two 9 oz. clear straight sided glass jars with silver metal lug caps. I got mine from SKS Bottle & Packaging here.

Begin by weighing out the cocoa butter, shea butter and emulsifying wax into a large glass Pyrex measuring cup or similar. Heat at 50% power in a microwave until melted. (Alternately you may also use a double boiler.)

Weigh out the melt and pour soap base and cut into small chunks. Stir into the melted butters and wax until melted. You can reheat if necessary to continue melting the soap base.

Remix the sugar scrub mixture with your hands. Your body heat will make the sugar scrub pliable sort of like Play-doh.

Divide the sugar scrub “dough” into six balls.

You’re now ready to create your rainbow of colors for your own moldable rainbow colored sugar scrub!

You’ll start by adding one of your colorants to the first ball of sugar scrub “dough.” Add just a little at a time, kneading well to incorporate the color. Once you’ve reached the desired color intensity, slowly add a small amount of super sparkles mica to the colored sugar scrub and knead it into the mixture. Keep adding the mica until the ball of sugar scrub “dough” reaches the level of sparkle desired.

Now repeat the process with the remaining sections of sugar scrub using a different color for each section. Divide and roll each ball of colored sugar scrub “dough” into two’s and set aside. If your rainbow sugar scrub gets too sticky while you are working you can simply step away and let the sugar scrub harden back up.

Now pat both sets of each of your six colors into flat rounds, just smaller than the diameter of the jar.

Layer one each of the colors into each of your two jars, pressing each layer down into the jar as you go until you’ve used all of the sugar scrub mixture.

Finally, screw on the lids to your jars and add a fun label! (I used extra sugar scrub “dough” for my moldable rainbow sugar scrub pictured here for photography purposes only. Evenly divided into two jars, your moldable rainbow sugar scrub should all be contained within each jar.)

To use simply scoop out desired amount and massage onto wet skin as you would a solid sugar scrub cube.
