  1. HI . If I want to add a preservative So what is it ? How much? Per kilogram. I am waiting for a response. Thank

    • I only add vitamin E oil because it’s all natural. This preserves the scrub for a month or two as long as a clean spoon is the only thing that come in contact with the scrub and no other bacteria gets in. I’ve also heard Rosemary Extract works, but you would have the smell as part of your finished product.

  2. It would be cute to have the directions on how to use the scrub on the back of the tag!!
    I’m going to make 50 jars of this next week!! Thanks for great recipe and the printable tag!!

  3. I love the way you made this little pinky treat a specially when it comes with lovely smell ! Thank you so much for shering !!!

  4. Hi, I am unable to open the link for the tags??? I also tried it from the link you put in the messages
    ..? It just shows a little padlock when I attempt to open it. Thanks.

  5. Can’t wait to try these sugar scrubs for my daughter’s baby shower. One question – does the food coloring stain hands? Our colors are pink and white. Thanks so much!

    • It doesn’t stain hands when using as it’s diluted with the other ingredients. It might stain hands if it gets on them in it’s pure form.

  6. I am trying to print multiple labels on a sheet of sticker paper to use but need more than 4 per page. Is there another link I can use or a link to an Etsy page to purchase the download to print as much as I can on one 8.5×11 sticker page?

    I also need this by tomorrow am for 2 Valentines day projects at school and am now freaking out as I don’t have a backup plan. Nothing like waiting until the last minute!!! Please help a double Room Momma in need!!!

  7. Hi Erin

    I’m planning on making this as a gift for a few people and I love the idea of using the food dye to make it pink, but my worry would be whether it could stain your skin when you’re using it as a scrub. Have you (or anyone else reading) tried using the colour and found that it definitely washes off with the rest of the scrub?

    I love the pink colour but I also don’t want to be responsible for leaving any of my family looking sunburned after using it!

    Looking forward to trying – I bet it smells divine 🙂

    • Hi Ellie,

      I’ve never had a problem with the food coloring, but I would definitely encourage those trying it for the first time to do a little test spot. However, The food coloring is used in such a small amount, I don’t think it would discolor the skin. It does smell divine!

  9. Hello, Erin,
    I love your recipe for the Pink Lemonade Sugar Scrub. I can not get the cute little tag you made and would love to be able to use it on my cute little jars. I am making to give to my 4 sister-in-laws and a close friend.

  10. what size jar did you use? I want to use the pink tags that go wit this? I ordered small containers but they are too small.
    Thanks

    • The recipes makes about 1 1/2 cups. The jars I found at Michael’s were the perfect size. However, if you used 1/2 pint jars, you’d have a little extra. You could double the recipe and get three half pints.

  11. Is it ok to use in the shower? I’m just curious with the oil if it’s ok for it to go down the drain. Thanks!

    • Good question, Krissy. I’ve been using scrubs for years, and never had a problem. If you’re worried about using it in the shower or bath, after you use the scrub with oil, run HOT water down your drain for 30 seconds to help flush it down. You could also use fractionated coconut oil as well.

  12. Dear Erin,

    Many thanks for this wonderful DIY idea. I will try it soon. But I have a quick question.

    I am planning to use coconut oil but, shall I buy liquid oil? Or is it better to buy solid one and have it melted and mixed together with sugar? Which one do you think would work better?

    By the way, liquid ones are relatively small in size and more expensive. I am a bit confused.

    Thanks in advance for your advice.

    Best,

    Zeynep

    • Hi Zeynep,

      Thanks for stopping by! I personally like to use the liquid coconut oil because it easier. I find it at Walmart, so it’s not too expensive for the large bottle I buy. I also use almond oil when I have that on hand.

      If you do use the solid coconut oil, you’ll definitely have to melt it a bit to get it to combine. Hope this helps! Let me know if you have other questions.
