Steps: How to Make Body Scrub – Arabian Candy Scrub
1- Add 8 tablespoons (around 190 grams or 6.70 oz) of white sugar to a bowl.
2- Add 1 tablespoon (around 23 grams or 0.81 oz) of your chosen white shampoo.
3- Mix the ingredients well until the mixture feels like you could stretch it out.
4- Now, we will add corn flour. Add 1 tablespoon and mix well.
5- Add 1 more tablespoon of corn flour and again mix well.
Note: Don’t add all the corn flour in one go. Add it one tablespoon at a time as mentioned in steps 4 and 5, and mix thoroughly in between.
6- Now, it’s time to prepare the blue nila mix. In a separate small bowl, add a 1/2 teaspoon of blue nila powder.
7- Add 3 grams (0.11 oz) of wheat germ oil.
8- Mix the blue nila powder and the wheat germ oil well.
9- Pour the blue nila mix over the main ingredients in the larger bowl.
10- Mix the contents well.
11- Add 10 drops of your chosen essential oil and mix well.
12- Add 1 more tablespoon of corn flour and mix well (so far, we have added a total of 3 tablespoons of corn flour).
Use your hands to knead the dough-like contents. The idea is to obtain a thick consistency to allow shaping the scrub as you wish. When you knead the mixture with your hands, you can feel whether you need more corn flour to thicken it more. If so, add more corn flour.
13- Put the scrub contents into a mold of your choice.
14- Wait 24 hours to allow the candy scrub to dry and harden. Then, remove it from the mold.
15- Your new Arabian Candy Scrub is now ready!
How To Use: Arabian Candy Scrub
Once you have prepared your captivating Arabian Candy Scrub with Blue Nila, follow these simple steps to indulge in its luxurious benefits.
- Begin by retrieving the dried and hardened scrub. Hold it in your hands and apply a generous amount of water to it. The moisture will gradually soften the scrub, preparing it for use.
- As the scrub softens, gently spread it across your skin. The addition of shampoo in the recipe helps create a lathering effect, enhancing the overall cleansing experience.
- With the scrub evenly spread on your skin, it’s time to activate its exfoliating powers. Using gentle circular motions, start to rub the scrub onto your skin. This motion will help remove dead skin cells, unclog pores, and promote a healthy glow.
- Pay extra attention to rough areas or areas that require extra exfoliation, such as elbows, knees, or feet. Take your time and enjoy the sensation as the scrub works its magic.
- Once you have thoroughly scrubbed your skin, rinse off the remaining residue with warm water. Feel the smoothness and radiance that this enchanting scrub leaves behind.
Remember, this delightful Arabian Candy Scrub with Blue Nila is a treat for both your senses and your skin. Incorporate it into your skincare routine and enjoy the luxurious experience it provides, leaving you with soft, rejuvenated, and glowing skin.
