    OK, I got a sample bottle of this, love it after I mixed it with 2oz weighed sugar. Maybe a touch more. Looks like runny frosting which I'm ok with, might have put in too much scent, the Red Grape and Blueberry. The problem with sugar scrubs for me, I hate that they are in a jar. Would it work if I put the scrub into a pump top bottle, or maybe the grand ovals? They're much easier to work with in the shower instead of a jar.

    Thanks!

    Grand Oval Bottles are fantastic for sugar or salt scrubs in the shower. You don't have to deal with the issues that a jar presents.

    Awesome. That's what I'll do then. I'm already planning my Christmas gifts this year, so I don't get behind again like last year!

    I've been using the Glycerin scrub base... and the issue that I'm having, is that my sugar is settling to the bottom. It doesn't separate completely because I'm adding salt to it... but the sugar is settling to the bottom, and making the finished product look icky. I'm wondering if maybe finding a more coarsely grained sugar might work?? Maybe my sugar's too fine?? (It's just the 10lb bag of granulated sugar that I get at the supermarket). At first... it was completely separating and leaving a layer of syrupy mess in the middle... the addition of salt stopped that... but after about a week of sitting, you can see the thicker sugar at the bottom. I've been wanting to try to fix this issue, so that I can buy some grand ovals and package them that way. Any ideas??

    Thanks!

    Sugar naturally breaks down more quickly than salt. You will be able to slow this down by using a larger sugar particle but, in turn your scrub will also be more abrasive.

    My suggestion would be to try increasing the amount of sugar overall, this will create a more frosting type product that will have less liquid to dissolve the sugar.

    Hello.. can i add coconut oil to the glycerin sugar scrub base ? I just received my order an used it for the first time today to make a sugar scrub for a friend ..I love how easy it is to use .. the only thing i wasnt happy about was that when i used the scrub on myself to test it, it did not leave that super soft feeling the way coconut oil leaves after you rinse off the scrub .. other than that I love it.. will adding a little coconut oil to this base ruin it?

    redkitty,
    I would only add up 2% Coconut Oil. Give it a try and let us know how it works for you!
