Honey Sugar Scrub Recipe

Submitted By:



Super for manicures!


2 oz honey
2 oz beeswax pellets
1/8 teaspoon borax
4 oz shea butter
4 oz high oleic sunflower oil
2 cups turbinado sugar
1.5 teaspoons Oatmeal, Milk & Honey FO (optional)


I've had this work in the microwave, but for best results melt shea butter to 175 degrees on double boiler for 20 min, remove from heat. Allow to cool to about 130 degrees, add beeswax pellets and borax, stir until dissolved. Add sunflower oil and honey. Stir until well mixed. Cool to room temp but do not let mixture solidify. Add FO and 1.5 cups sugar. Gently mix, package and finish cooling (in the fridge if you're in a hurry). You may need to add a bit more sugar if mix seems gloppy. Preserve with a couple drops liquapar oil or rosemary oil extract. Super for manicures!

Customer Testimonial

"I just had to write you and tell you that your company is top notch! I inadvertently used the wrong zip code when I ordered my products. however, you caught the error and delivered it to the correct location. I cannot tell you how grateful I am, because I really needed these products today. This is my first order from FNWL. Your packaging is superb. Nothing is leaking or torn and no product is wasted (which is something that I cannot say about all suppliers). I will be placing another order next week, and just wanted you to know that I appreciate a great business supplier that will take the time to ensure quality to their customers. Thank you!!!!"
