One of my favorite summer treats are creamsicles- you know, the orange popsicles filled with vanilla ice cream? Yum! I love the combination of the tart citrus with the sweet vanilla flavor. It’s SO good!
This recipe is my soap version of a cool summer treat. The fluffy whipped base is wonderful for a cool shower after a day in the hot sun. When mixed with sugar, it gently exfoliates the skin to a perfect polish.
Oh- and it smells pretty delicious too.
So gather up your supplies and try it out for yourself!
1 cup Foaming Bath Butter
1/2 cup Sugar
1.5 teaspoons Sweet Orange Essential Oil
1.5 teaspoons Vanilla Sugar Fragrance Oil (or vanilla essential oil)
1 teaspoon Jojoba Oil
As always, we have to start this recipe by whipping the bath butter base into a light fluffy consistency. This is best achieved with an electric mixer (otherwise your arm would get one heck of a workout). Once the base has been whipped, blend in the oils.?
After the oils have been successfully incorporated into the mix, beat in the sugar (a little sugar with the foaming bath butter base is a wonderful way to add a gentle grit which will act as an exfoliating agent and make skin soft and smooth).
Finally, mix in the mica powder starting with a small amount and blending, then adding more until you’ve achieved the color you want. I was looking for a soft hint of color with a little sparkle and this mica powder did just that!
Ooh la la!
The color, the texture, the fragrance- so wonderful for a summer scrub.
I hope you enjoy it!
