I can’t begin to tell you how delicious this Rose Homemade Sugar Scrub is AND I’ve even created a FREE printable if you want to give it to a special someone as a gift!
Let me begin by telling you that I love me a good homemade sugar scrub. I have posted a few on the blog in the past. Homemade Sugar Scrubs are not only easy to make but they are crazy cheap to make and also make wonderful and thoughtful gifts. I recently made this gorgeous Rose Homemade Sugar Scrub and I tell you what, it was a total hit. I actually made it for Mother’s day but simply didn’t get around to posting it on the blog until now.
What I love about making these homemade sugar scrubs is that they can be used all year round and can be gifted for any occasion. This one has become my new favorite and I am in love with my Lavender body scrub and also my Orange body scrub that I make regularly. I’ve always loved the smell of Rose essential oil and have used it regularly on my skin, mainly on my face as it is a very expensive oil to purchase. It’s a hydrating oil and perfect for sensitive skin which I love.
ROSE HOMEMADE SUGAR SCRUB
Ingredients you’ll need to make your own Rose Homemade Sugar Scrub:
2 Roses (color of your preference but I chose pink because it’s such a pretty color)
2 Cups White Sugar
3 Tbsp Coconut Oil (or any carrier oil such as olive oil, jojoba, almond oil)
15-20 Drops Rose Essential Oil (Rose in Jojoba blend is far cheaper than Rose essential oil on it’s own, or you can use Rose fragrance but it won’t be as “natural” as you may like)
1-3 Tbsp Water
How To Make Your Homemade Sugar Scrub
To make this rose homemade sugar scrub is very simple and quick which is a huge benefit of DIYing your own body scrubs!
Step 1: Place sugar in a large bowl.
Step 2: In your blender (I used my NutriBullet) place the petals of one rose with 1-3 tablespoons of water. The amount of water depends on your blender. Blend on high until it has become runny and the water has turned into the colour of the rose petals.
Step 3: Pour you rose water blend on top of the sugar and mix well with a spoon until the colour has evenly distributed through the sugar.
Step 4: using the petals from the second rose, blend them in your blender quickly and with no water just to help break them up into small pieces. Add the small pieces into the sugar blend for added colour and texture.
Step 5: Mix in 3 tbsp of coconut oil. Be thorough until it has all mixed in together well.
Step 6: Finally add 15-20 drops of your rose essential oil and mix well. This will give it the finishing fragrance you want.
Place the scrub in a pretty airtight container, attach a pretty printable gift tag on the lid and voila! You have a delicious Rose Sugar Scrub ready to give mom this Mother’s Day.
I chose not to use artificial coloring but if you wish your scrub to be more pink or red or any other color then you can add a couple of drops of your desired colour into the sugar scrub blend for a more vibrant looking scrub.
To finish off this pretty scrub I have made these pretty watercolor gift tags that says “Rose Sugar Scrub” on them that you can tie them on to the lid with some twine or thin string. I had it printed on textured paper which gave it a more watercolor paper finish. You can print on plain paper but make sure it is thicker card rather than conventional paper so the tag lasts and doesn’t get ruined.
This scrub will be perfect on it’s own or as part of a pamper hamper that you can gift to mom. The options are limitless!
I hope you love this scrub and make it for mom, yourself and all of your friends because it not only smell gorgeous but leaves your skin feeling velvety soft and nourished.
