How to Make Sugar Scrub Cubes

Jarred sugar scrubs are messy, and they tend to make the shower floor slick, so I developed a recipe for sugar scrub cubes. They have the same exfoliating power – without all the mess. Just place a cube in your hand; hold it under the shower head; and it’ll soften into the perfect amount of scrub for a single use.

These sugar scrub cubes would make the perfect homemade gift. Whip up a batch, and you’ll be able to cross several people off your gift list.

How to Make Sugar Scrub Cubes

What You Need:

6 oz clear glycerin melt-and-pour soap base
6 oz moisturizing oil (sweet almond, jojoba, grapeseed, etc.)
18 oz granulated sugar
1 tsp essential oil (lavender and peppermint are two of my favorites)
Liquid soap coloring
A mold

Silicone candy molds work well for this project, so do wax melt molds.

What You Do:

Melted Glycerin Soap

Cut the glycerin into cubes. Then, microwave the soap for 30 seconds at a time, until it’s fully melted.

Add Essential Oil to Melted Glycerin

Add the oils to the soap, and stir well to combine.

Add Sugar to Oil and Soap

Then, stir in the sugar.

Color Sugar Scrubs

Add four to six drops of liquid coloring to color your sugar scrubs.

Press Sugar Scrubs into Mold

Then, press your sugar scrub mixture firmly into your molds.

Sugar Scrub Cubes

Allow your sugar scrub cubes to dry and harden. Then, pop them out, and place them in an air-tight container, if you used silicone molds. Seal the lids, if you used wax melt molds.

  1. Love this idea. I have been looking for an easy sugar (or salt scrub). This fits the bill very nicely.

    God bless.
