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
Silicone candy molds work well for this project, so do wax melt molds.
What You Do:
Cut the glycerin into cubes. Then, microwave the soap for 30 seconds at a time, until it’s fully melted.
Add the oils to the soap, and stir well to combine.
Then, stir in the sugar.
Add four to six drops of liquid coloring to color your sugar scrubs.
Then, press your sugar scrub mixture firmly into your molds.
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.
