To make the base of your sugar scrub, evenly combine the sugar, coconut oil and essential oils (optional). If you prfer a creamier texture, just mix in extra coconut oil.
To prep for the color mixing, seperate the sugar scrub base into small mixing bowls. (One for each color of your choice.)
Spoon in the gel food coloring and mix in the color with your hands. For the light colors, I just used a very modest amount of a color. And for the more vibrant ones, I used a generous amount of food coloring. You can also mix and match colors to get a certain shade you’re looking for.
Once you’ve made all the colors, spoon each color into a glass container. Firmly press the sugar for each color into place before moving onto the next one. I left mine sort of messy and uneven like sand art would usually be. And I love the way it turned out!
