I love summer, but it sure can be hard on skin. There’s summer dryness, summer sun burn, summer bug bites and chlorine from the pool – all of which can make skin unhappy. With this Sweet Summer Scrub, we can (hopefully!) keep most of those potential problems in check.
This recipe is rich in Sweet Almond Oil, which is known for being a lightweight oil chock full of oleic and linoleic essential fatty acids. That’s basically a fancy way of saying it’s incredibly moisturizing and absorbs into skin with ease. Our decadent Foaming Bath Whip acts as the gentle cleansing base to help give your skin a fresh start (all the better to take in that rich Sweet Almond Oil). With a little help from the some regular granulated sugar you can find at the grocery store, you’ve got yourself a gentle exfoliating scrub that is must-have summer skin care item.
What You’ll Need:

PREP: Before measuring out the oils, unwrap both packages of Foaming Bath Whip and combine in a large bowl (at least 64 oz.).
ONE: Combine the Foaming Bath Whip and Neroli and Shea Blossom Fragrance Oil in a large bowl. Whip using a handheld or stand mixer until the fragrance oil has been fully incorporated into the Foaming Bath Whip.
TWO: Portion out the Sweet Almond Oil and add it to the bath whip and fragrance oil mixture.
THREE: Using a hand mixer, combine the bath whip and oils. Whip until the mixture has approximately doubled in size (this is a good 5 – 10 minutes of mixing which is why a stand mixer is preferred).
FOUR: Once the bath whip mixture has fluffed up, add in the sugar a little bit at a time, using a spatula to gently fold it into the mixture. Be careful to fully incorporate the sugar while not deflating the bath whip too much.
FIVE: After fully incorporating the sugar, split the mixture into two equal parts.
SIX: Add approximately 4 mini scoops of Coral Mica to one bowl of bath whip. Add the same amount of Aqua Pearl Mica to the other. The mica colorant is WYSIWYG, so it’s up to you how much to add. Add an extra scoop or two for a more intense color, but keep in mind that the base is white and your color will not evolve past a pastel.
SEVEN: Cut the tips of the plastic frosting bags. Using a spatula fill one frosting bag with the Coral colored mixture, and the other bag with the Aqua colored mixture. Then, put a frosting tip and the two filled bags inside a third bag. Squeeze until both colors come out in one stream through the third bag. Twist all three of the bags together at their openings to create a seal.
EIGHT: With a steady hand, swirl the whip into a container. Move around the outside of the jar and work your way in as you squeeze. When you reach the middle, start swirling your way back to the outside of the jar. Repeat the swirl until you fill the jar to the top.
There you go! Enjoy your sweet summer scrub for those sweet summer days.
