Hi friends and hello Monday! Um, I’m just going to jump right into it—can we talk about how perfect this sugar scrub looks? I had no idea going into the project that it was going to be even better than I had expected!! Okay, so I made this sugar scrub last year for my bridal shower and it was a hit, so I thought, why not try another sugar scrub?? I think this one tops last years. Not only am I sharing the tutorial on how to make your own, BUT I also included a printable to place on the lid of your jars! It has a cute little quote on it that says, “feel like a mermaid” …because we all need to feel like a mermaid every once and a while (duh!). Not only is this an awesome recipe for you, but it will also make the most perfect gift!
Okay, so here’s how to make your own mermaid sugar scrub.
What you need:
Recipe fills about 3 of these 8 oz. jars
• Jars (I used these 8 oz. jars)
• White sticker paper (for printable)
• ½ cup of coconut oil
• 2 cups of sugar
• 1 tablespoon of coconut extract
• Red food coloring
• Blue food coloring
• Green food coloring
• Mermaid Sugar Scrub Free Printable
Step 1: Mix in sugar, coconut oil, and coconut extract into a large bowl.
Step 2: Break the well-mixed sugar scrub into thirds and place each third into three separate bowls.
Step 3: This step may vary for your mixture so please color to your liking. Here’s what I did—In the first bowl, place 1 drop of red. Mix well. In the second bowl, place 1 drop of green and 1 drop of blue and mix well. Lastly, place 1 drop of blue into the remaining bowl and mix well.
Step 4: Using a spatula or spoon, scoop each color into the jar, portioning off so that each color fills a third of the jar (see photo below to get a better idea).
Step 5: Using a stick (or the end of a fork) lightly mix the middle of the scrub so as to give the colors a swirl effect.
Step 6: Print and cut out your Mermaid Sugar Scrub labels and place onto the lid of your jars.
Step 7: You have officially made your own mermaid sugar scrub!
I have no doubt in my mind that this will bring you one step closer to feeling like a mermaid. The smell of the coconut makes it even better too! Have you made sugar scrub before? I honestly had no idea how easy it was until I made some last year.
