Unicorn Sugar Scrub

Unicorn sugar scrubStep into the whimsical land of unicorns with this delicious unicorn sugar scrub.

It smells amazing and feels even better when you use it on your skin to exfoliate dead skin cells. Now granted, this is more of a fun sugar scrub you can have a great time creating with your friends and family.

The colors and the smell are probably the best part of it all. I mean, at this point, I’m about ready to start my own sugar scrub shop on Etsy or something, I enjoy making them that much!

The fun thing about sugar scrubs is that you can experiment with them and create all kinds of sweet combinations and ideas. Eventually, I plan on creating more sugar scrub recipes to add to my list (there are so many I just can’t not make I have a few ideas up my sleeve).

For this sugar scrub for instance, you can always add your favorite essential oils to it for good measure. Lavender, Peppermint, or even Ylang Ylang are a great choice.

How to get the ‘unicorn’ look

Homemade unicorn sugar scrub

it looks a lot more complicated than it is, but if you want to successfully create an eye catching unicorn sugar scrub it’s all in two things:

  1. How you pile up your colors
  2. And how their consistency sits with each other to get the swirly effect

Let me explain. For this sugar scrub recipe I used three colors: pink, purple, and blue.

But I could’ve definitely used only pink and blue and it would have looked just as amazing. To make your colors look like they’re swirling into each other but not really mixing what you need to do is patiently use a small spoon to scoop in a little bit of each color at a time.

Once you do this and you fill your mason jar, you’ll start to see the colors come together. Now, if your sugar scrub mixes are a little more on the drier side, one thing you can do is add a bit (just a bit) of water to the jar and let it trickle down throughout the jar.

This will help your sugar scrub melt into more of a swirly effect. Genius, right?!
