Cotton Candy DIY Sugar Scrub

cotton candy sugar scrub diy tutorial
While growing up I was always fond of cotton candy, the smell, the taste and even at my wedding candy buffet {before candy buffets were a thing} I had a cotton candy machine and bags for guests to take. Now we can DIY different homemade cosmetics and spa goodies to have that same wonderful scent using items around the house! This is a great last minute gift idea too for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, and any other holiday appropriate for cotton candy love:)

Cotton Candy DIY Sugar Scrub

 Cotton Candy jelly beans mixed in and dissolves:)

1 Cup Sugar
1/2 cup Carrier Oil
   –Coconut, Almond Oil, Olive, Apricot, Grapeseed, Safflower, Avocado etc.
Storage Container
Cotton Candy Jelly Beans
-I used Jelly Belly
  –Strawberry or
    –Strawberry or

Large Bowl

Mix 1 Cup, 4 drops Essential Oils scent/extract, 1/3-1/2 Oil. The larger container, amount you need increases and double up recipe to fit your project size and container(s) you’re using.

Step 1:
Mix 1 Cup Sugar and 1/2 cup Oil, play with ratios until you get the consistency you want. I prefer not to have excess oil.

Step 2:
Add the packet of Jello or Koolaid or both and combine. This adds color and scent.

 I have pink lemonade Kool-aid in the picture, put didn’t use that. I simply am showing that for a color option. I only used the strawberry jello and cherry Kool-aid (but I would’ve rather have used strawberry kool-aid, couldn’t find)

Use stuff on hand in your pantry!

Step 3:
Cut up your jelly beans and, fold them into the sugar mixture. I used scissors, you can also use other cutting utensils.

Step 4:
Add 4 drops per cup of sugar of pure Vanilla Essential Oil/ Vanilla Extract.

Step 5:
Store in an air tight container. Decorate and add a pretty label.

yay for Cotton Candy!!

    I recall seeing a video of this sugar scrub being made, possibly on twitter, but i looked through all of your social media and couldn’t find it. I know it was this exact recipe because I remember the girl in the video cutting the jelly beans in half and putting them into the same exact container pictured below. Can I find this video anwhere?

    This is so cute. If I made it, should I put an expiration date on it? Like a best before?

    1. Maybe put for 90 days, exp date. Mine ran out before that because I used the small tiny mason jars but it doesn’t contain anything that should spoil.
