Cotton Candy DIY Sugar Scrub

While growing up I was always fond of cotton candy, the smell, the taste and even at my wedding candy buffet {before candy buffets were a thing} I had a cotton candy machine and bags for guests to take. Now we can DIY different homemade cosmetics and spa goodies to have that same wonderful scent using items around the house! This is a great last minute gift idea too for Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, and any other holiday appropriate for cotton candy love:)

 Cotton Candy jelly beans mixed in and dissolves:)

Supplies:
1 Cup Sugar
1/2 cup Carrier Oil
   -Coconut, Almond Oil, Olive, Apricot, Grapeseed, Safflower, Avocado etc.
Storage Container
Cotton Candy Jelly Beans
   -I used Jelly Belly
  -Strawberry or
  -Cherry
    -Strawberry or
    -Cherry
Large Bowl

Mix 1 Cup, 4 drops Essential Oils scent/extract, 1/3-1/2 Oil. The larger container, amount you need increases and double up recipe to fit your project size and container(s) you're using.


Step 1:
Mix 1 Cup Sugar and 1/2 cup Oil, play with ratios until you get the consistency you want. I prefer not to have excess oil.

Step 2:
Add the packet of Jello or Koolaid or both and combine. This adds color and scent.

 I have pink lemonade Kool-aid in the picture, put didn't use that. I simply am showing that for a color option. I only used the strawberry jello and cherry Kool-aid (but I would've rather have used strawberry kool-aid, couldn't find)

Use stuff on hand in your pantry!

Step 3:
Cut up your jelly beans and, fold them into the sugar mixture. I used scissors, you can also use other cutting utensils.



Step 4:
Add 4 drops per cup of sugar of pure Vanilla Essential Oil/ Vanilla Extract.

Step 5:
Store in an air tight container. Decorate and add a pretty label.

yay for Cotton Candy!!
