Crafted using the exact same recipe as my unicorn poop sugar scrub, both my bunny and chick spring sugar scrubs can be made using the same batch of my moldable semi-solid sugar scrub “dough.” Simply make a batch, then divide it as needed for the number of colors you want.

In my case, I used a combo of colors for a purple-gray for my bunny butts and yellow for my Easter chicks. The simple details are then painted on using micas and isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol.

You can pre-make the “dough” base for these spring sugar scrubs then create the shapes and paint on the details with your kids or grandkids for a craft afternoon filled with fun!

DIY Spring Sugar Scrubs

© Rebecca D. Dillon

Ingredients:

.75 oz. refined cocoa butter
6 oz. ultra refined shea butter
1 oz. extra virgin chia seed oil
.75 oz. emulsifying wax
.5 oz. xanthan gum powder
.15 oz. castor oil
.35 oz. vegetable glycerin
.75 oz. Stephenson’s Natural SLS Free Melt and Pour Soap Base
.05 oz. kaolin clay (white cosmetic clay)
16 oz. granulated white sugar
.25 oz. essential oil or .4 oz. fragrance oil, of choice
liquid melt & pour soap colors and/or skin safe mica powders, to suit

Instructions:

You will need a digital scale to weigh the ingredients for my DIY spring sugar scrubs. I recommend this Baker’s Math Scale if you plan to make a lot of bath, body or soap recipes.

Begin by weighing out the cocoa butter, shea butter and emulsifying wax into a large glass Pyrex measuring cup or similar. Heat at 50% power in a microwave until melted. (Alternately you may also use a double boiler.)

Weigh out the melt and pour soap base and cut into small chunks. Stir into the melted butters and wax until melted. You can reheat if necessary to continue melting the soap base.

While these ingredients are still hot, weigh out the xanthan gum powder and whisk into the melted ingredients until it has dissolved.

Next, you’ll weigh out the remaining oils and glycerin. Combine the chia seed oil, castor oil, essential or fragrance oil and vegetable glycerin in the bowl with the previously melted ingredients and stir well.

In a separate container, weigh out the kaolin clay and sugar. Mix to combine.

Now pour the clay and sugar mixture into the liquid ingredients and mix well.

Set the mixture aside until it starts to thicken then remix with a spoon or spatula.

Now mix the sugar scrub mixture using a KitchenAid stand mixer as it continues to thicken.

You can place the sugar scrub mixture in the refrigerator to speed up the cooling process if desired.

Once the mixture begins to look white and a little fluffy – kind of like marshmallow fluff – remove the mixing bowl from the stand mixer base and place it briefly in the fridge.

When sugar scrub starts to feel as if it’s hardening, remove it from the refrigerator.

Remix the sugar scrub mixture with your hands. Your body heat will make the sugar scrub pliable sort of like Play-doh.

You’re now ready to create your bunny and chick spring sugar scrubs!

You’ll start by dividing the sugar scrub “dough” into the number of colors you’d like to use. Working with one ball of sugar scrub “dough” at a time, add the colorant(s) to the first sugar scrub “dough” a little at a time. Knead well to incorporate the color in between adding the colorant. Once you’ve reached the color you want, repeat with any additional sugar scrub “dough” and colorants.

In this instance I colored half of my sugar scrub “dough” yellow for the little chick spring sugar scrubs and a combination of colors for the bunny butts to create a purplish-gray.

Learn how to make your own fun DIY spring sugar scrubs in bunny and chick shapes for Easter! Made from a moldable semi-solid sugar scrub, these spring sugar scrubs are fun both in and out of the tub!

Now divide the yellow colored sugar scrub “dough” into palm sized or smaller chunks and roll them into balls.

Do the same for the bunny butts, but leave some left over scrub off to the side. Once you’ve rolled out the balls for the bunny butts, roll out several smaller balls for the bunny tails and two more small balls for each of the bunny butts.

Roll the balls for the bunny feet on a flat surface until they are slightly oblong, then gently press flat.

Press the bunny feet onto the bottom of the large balls you created as your bunny butts. If you’re worried about the feet sticking during transport or if you’re gifting your spring sugar scrubs, simply dip the bottoms of the bunny feet into a small amount of melted natural melt and pour soap base and use it to adhere the components of your bunny together.

Now dip each sphere you created for the bunny tails into skin safe glitter or mica. I used Super Sparkles mica powder for my bunny tails. Then adhere the tails to your bunny butts as photographed above the bunny feet.

Set both the chick and the bunny spring sugar scrubs aside to harden back up. You can of course speed up this process by placing them in the fridge.

Once your bunny and chick sugar scrubs are nice and firm you’re ready to paint on the designs! This is done in basically the same way I painted on the micas for my DIY mermaid soaps!

You will use micas to paint the details your spring sugar scrubs. Grab a small container for each color you want to use to paint your scrubs.

Add a small amount of mica to each container followed by a small amount of isopropyl alcohol. As you want bold colors, use as little alcohol as possible to dampen the mica just enough that you can smoothly spread it with a small paintbrush.

To paint on the bunny feet simply paint one large circle in a contrasting color to your bunny’s color at the top of the bottoms of all the bunny feet. Then also paint three small circles on the bottoms of all the feet. Let them dry and your spring bunny sugar scrubs are done!

To make your chick sugar scrubs it’s pretty much the same deal and also super easy. Paint two small circles for eyes – or use candy eyes like I did for my DIY poop emoji bubble bars – and then paint on triangles for each of their beaks! Let them dry and now your spring chick sugar scrubs are complete!

Now all you need to do is package your spring sugar scrubs in large 16 oz. clear PET (BPA free) jars or wrap tightly in food service film and label as desired.

To use simply scoop or tear off desired amount from a chick or bunny and massage onto wet skin as you would a solid sugar scrub cube.

If you’d like to sell these chick and bunny spring sugar scrubs for Easter, be sure to follow FDA guidelines for labeling your product. If you’re unsure about the rules and regulations regarding labeling cosmetics, I highly recommend the book, Soap and Cosmetic Labeling: How to Follow the Rules and Regs Explained in Plain English, by Marie Gale.

My unicorn poop sugar scrub recipe combines primarily natural ingredients so it’s suitable for even sensitive skin. One of these ingredients is extra virgin chia seed oil. With natural anti-inflammatory benefits, chia seed oil also helps to hydrate skin, improve elasticity, and encourage regeneration of skin cells. It is suitable for all skin types, but is especially wonderful for dry, sensitive, and maturing skin.

A treat for both kids and adults at bath time, my unicorn poop sugar scrub recipe creates a unique product that’s great for gifting. After all, everyone needs a little sparkle in their life from time to time!

Unicorn Poop Sugar Scrub Recipe

Ingredients:

.75 oz. refined cocoa butter
6 oz. ultra refined shea butter
1 oz. extra virgin chia seed oil
.75 oz. emulsifying wax
.5 oz. xanthan gum powder
.15 oz. castor oil
.35 oz. vegetable glycerin
.75 oz. Stephenson’s Natural SLS Free Melt and Pour Soap Base
.05 oz. kaolin clay (white cosmetic clay)
16 oz. granulated white sugar
.25 oz. essential oil or .4 oz. fragrance oil, of choice
6  different liquid melt & pour soap colors or skin safe mica powders, to suit
Super Sparkles mica powder, to suit

Instructions:

You will need a digital scale to weigh the ingredients for my unicorn poop sugar scrub recipe. I recommend this Baker’s Math Scale if you plan to make a lot of bath, body or soap recipes.

In addition, you will also need two 9 oz. clear straight sided glass jars with silver metal lug caps. I got mine from SKS Bottle & Packaging here.

Begin by weighing out the cocoa butter, shea butter and emulsifying wax into a large glass Pyrex measuring cup or similar. Heat at 50% power in a microwave until melted. (Alternately you may also use a double boiler.)

Weigh out the melt and pour soap base and cut into small chunks. Stir into the melted butters and wax until melted. You can reheat if necessary to continue melting the soap base.

While these ingredients are still hot, weigh out the xanthan gum powder and whisk into the melted ingredients until it has dissolved.

Next, you’ll weigh out the remaining oils and glycerin. Combine the chia seed oil, castor oil, essential or fragrance oil and vegetable glycerin in the bowl with the previously melted ingredients and stir well.

In a separate container, weigh out the kaolin clay and sugar. Mix to combine.

Now pour the clay and sugar mixture into the liquid ingredients and mix well.

Set the mixture aside until it starts to thicken then remix with a spoon or spatula.

Now mix the sugar scrub mixture using a KitchenAid stand mixer as it continues to thicken.

You can place the sugar scrub mixture in the refrigerator to speed up the cooling process if desired.

Once the mixture begins to look white and a little fluffy – kind of like marshmallow fluff – remove the mixing bowl from the stand mixer base and place it briefly in the fridge.

When sugar scrub starts to feel as if it’s hardening, remove it from the refrigerator.

Remix the sugar scrub mixture with your hands. Your body heat will make the sugar scrub pliable sort of like Play-doh.

Divide the sugar scrub “dough” into six balls.

You’re now ready to create your rainbow of colors for your own unicorn poop sugar scrub!

You’ll start by adding one of your colorants to the first ball of sugar scrub “dough.” Add just a little at a time, kneading well to incorporate the color. Once you’ve reached the desired color intensity, slowly add a small amount of super sparkles mica to the colored sugar scrub and knead it into the mixture. Keep adding the mica until the ball of sugar scrub “dough” reaches the level of sparkle desired.

Learn how to make fun unicorn poop sugar scrubs with a cool original semi-solid unicorn poop sugar scrub recipe that you can mold and shape!

Now repeat the process with the remaining sections of sugar scrub using a different color for each section. Divide and roll each ball of colored sugar scrub “dough” into two’s and set aside. If your sugar scrub gets too sticky while you are working you can simply step away and let the sugar scrub harden back up.

Now pat both sets of each of your six colors into flat rounds, just smaller than the diameter of the jar.

Layer one each of the colors into each of your two jars, pressing each layer down into the jar as you go until you’ve used all of the sugar scrub mixture.

If desired, you can add an additional sprinkle of Super Sparkle mica powder to the tops of your unicorn poop sugar scrubs.

Finally, screw on the lids to your jars and add a fun label! (I used extra sugar scrub “dough” for the unicorn poop sugar scrub pictured here for photography purposes only. Evenly divided into two jars, your unicorn poop sugar scrub should all be contained within each jar.)

To use simply scoop out desired amount and massage onto wet skin as you would a solid sugar scrub cube.

If you plan to sell your finished unicorn poop sugar scrubs, you’ll need to follow FDA guidelines for labeling your product. If you’re unsure about the rules and regulations regarding labeling cosmetics, I highly recommend the book, Soap and Cosmetic Labeling: How to Follow the Rules and Regs Explained in Plain English, by Marie Gale.

Exfoliating Whipped Sugar Scrub Recipe

© Rebecca D. Dillon

Ingredients:

13 oz. white granulated sugar
6 oz. ultra refined high melt point shea butter
.75 oz. refined cocoa butter
.5 oz. jojoba oil
.5 oz. fractionated coconut oil
.5 oz. emulsifying wax
.5 oz. lagoon green jojoba beads
.2 oz. aloe vera oil
1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum powder
.2 oz. fragrance oil or .1 oz. essential oil

Instructions:

Using a digital scale weigh out the shea butter, cocoa butter and  emulsifying wax. Heat in a double boiler until melted. (Alternately you can also heat in a large glass Pyrex container in the microwave at 50% power.)

Next weigh out the jojoba oil, fractionated coconut oil and aloe vera oil. (Please note that fractionated coconut oil is not the same as regular coconut oil and it is always liquid at room temperature or colder. In addition aloe vera oil is not the same thing as aloe vera gel. It’s actually an oil.)

Add the oils to the double boiler and stir well to combine.

Remove from heat and measure out the xanthan gum powder. Whisk into the melted butter mixture until it dissolves.

Now weigh out your fragrance of choice and stir into the melted body butter mixture.

A great scent choice for essential oils is equal parts lemongrass essential oil and peppermint essential oil with just a “splash” of lime peel essential oil. Or if a fragrance oil is preferred, I really love a limoncello fragrance oil for spring!

Allow the mixture to cool until it begins to get cloudy. (You can speed this process up by placing your melted ingredients in the refrigerator for a short amount of time.)

And whether you're creating these products to gift or to sell, you can give them the same professional look as the big companies with your own custom designed waterproof vinyl labels from StickerYou!

To make the whipped body butter soufflé recipe:

Then, if you are making the whipped body butter soufflé, pour the melted mixture into your mixing bowl and whip until your body butter reaches the desired consistency. I highly recommend a stand mixer for this step as it can take a while.

Once your whipped body butter soufflé has a creamy, marshmallow fluff like texture it can be spooned into your jars. (You should be able to hold a spoon of the whipped body butter upside down without it dripping off.) This recipe will yield two 8 oz. whipped body souffles.

To use, apply sparingly as a little goes a long way. Once your skin absorbs the body butter souffle, it will not feel greasy or tacky and you will really be able to feel the hydration that it locks in. For this reason I loved this product on my hands and feet – but feel free to use it anywhere you like.

If you are scenting your whipped body butter soufflé with essential oils or lip safe fragrance oils, this feels AMAZING on lips too!

To make the exfoliating whipped sugar scrub recipe:

If you are making the whipped sugar scrub, once your melted oils have cooled, weigh out the jojoba beads and the sugar and combine with the melted body butter mixture in your mixing bowl. Whip until the sugar scrub reaches desired consistency or until it holds onto your whisk or a spoon without dropping off.

Now spoon or pipe your whipped sugar scrub into your containers. My whipped sugar scrub recipe yields approximately four 8 oz. jars.

To use, scoop out desired amount and massage onto wet skin in the bath or shower as desired. Rinse off then pat dry.

I used ActuallyOrganic 100% Pure Moroccan Argan Oil to create these luxe bridesmaid favors. This cold pressed argan oil is USDA certified organic and works wonderfully for all of your natural skin care recipes. It’s also great for helping to smooth dry frizzy hair or as a body oil for dry winter skin.

Personally I also love it with a few drops of coffee essential oil mixed in under my eyes to help reduce the appearance under eye puffiness and dark circles! (Also probably great for bridesmaids after that late night bachelorette party!)

Strawberries & Champagne Solid Sugar Scrub Recipe

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen

Ingredients:

1.25 oz. detergent free baby buttermilk soap base
2 oz. refined shea butter
.3 oz. ActuallyOrganic Argan Oil
.3 oz. moringa oil
.25 oz. strawberries and champagne fragrance oil
8 oz. white granulated sugar
red liquid soap colorant, to suit

 Instructions:

You will need two silicone flower chocolate molds (with 15 cavities each) or similar to make these bridesmaid favors. In addition you’ll also need a digital scale to weigh out the ingredients.

This recipe will yield 30 .4 oz. solid sugar scrub cubes and make six jars of bridesmaid favors (assuming you fill each jar with five solid sugar scrub cubes.)

Begin by weighing out the shea butter and soap base. Combine in a double boiler and gently heat until melted.

If you do not have a double boiler, you can use a microwave. You’ll need to heat the shea butter first at 40-50% power until mostly melted then melt the soap base with the shea butter the rest of the way. You do not want to overheat your ingredients so stopping and melting the ingredients as you go is also helpful.

Once melted remove from heat.

Now weigh out the argan and moringa oils along with the fragrance oil and stir into the melted butters and soap base.

Next you’ll want to weigh out the sugar into a large Pyrex measuring cup.

Pour the sugar into the liquid mixture of oils, shea butter, soap and fragrance mixing as you go. Once thoroughly combined use a spatula to spoon the mixture into one mold filling all fifteen cavities. Flatten with the spatula.

With the remaining solid sugar scrub mixture, add 2-4 drops of red liquid soap color until desired color is achieved.

Spoon the pink solid sugar scrub mixture into your second mold so you fill all fifteen cavities with the colored scrub. Flatten with the spatula.(Hint. Place your mold on a cutting board for easy transfer to another location later.)

If desired, transfer your solid sugar scrub cubes to the fridge until they are fully solidified.

Once your solid sugar scrub cubes have set up, carefully remove them from each of the molds’ cavities.

Fill six 4 oz. Clear Glass Paragon Jars with Silver Caps with five solid sugar scrub cubes in alternating colors. I got my glass jars from SKS Bottle & Packaging here. (These also make excellent spice jars!) Then simply tie ribbons around the neck of the jars and you’re done!

Strawberry & Chocolate Fudge Solid Sugar Scrub Bars Recipe

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen

Ingredients (fudge bottom):

2.5 oz. detergent free baby buttermilk melt & pour soap base
.35 oz. dark cocoa butter wafers
3.65 oz. refined shea butter
.5 oz. avocado oil
.7 oz. sweet almond oil
.5 oz. chocolate fragrance oil, or similar
16.5 oz. granulated white sugar

Ingredients: (strawberry icing):

1.25 oz. detergent free baby buttermilk melt & pour base
2 oz. refined shea butter
.6 oz. sweet almond oil
.25 oz. strawberries & champagne fragrance oil, or similar
8.25 oz. granulated white sugar
liquid red soap colorant, to suit

Instructions:

To create my strawberry and chocolate fudge solid sugar scrub bars, you’ll begin by making the fudge bottom and using those ingredients first. You’ll need a digital scale to weigh out the ingredients as well as an Ozera 6-Cavity Rectangle Silicone Soap Mold or similar.

Begin by weighing out the dark cocoa butter wafers, shea butter and soap base in the amounts called for in the ingredients for the fudge bottom. Combine in a double boiler and gently heat until melted.

If you do not have a double boiler, you can use a microwave. You’ll need to combine and melt the dark cocoa butter and shea butter first at 40-50% power until mostly melted then melt the soap base with the butters the rest of the way. You do not want to overheat your ingredients so stopping and melting the ingredients as you go is also helpful.

Once melted remove from heat.

Now weigh out the avocado and sweet almonds oils along with the fragrance oil of your choice and stir into the melted butters and soap base.

Next you’ll want to weigh out the sugar into a large Pyrex measuring cup.

Pour the sugar into the liquid mixture of oils, butters, soap and fragrance mixing as you go. Once thoroughly combined use a spatula to pour/spoon the mixture evenly into all six of the mold cavities. Flatten with the spatula. (Hint. Place your mold on a cutting board for easy transfer to another location later.)

The mixture will almost fill each cavity. This is what you want so you can build up an icing top.

While the bottom of your fudge solid sugar scrub bars are setting up, you’ll need to mix up the ingredients for the icing top!

Using a digital scale to weigh out all of the ingredients, heat and melt the shea butter and baby buttermilk soap base. Add the sweet almond oil and fragrance along with 2-4 drops of the liquid soap colorant. Then, just as you did with the fudge bottom, mix in the sugar.

Once the sugar is thoroughly combined you can begin spooning the strawberry “icing” top onto the tops of the fudge bottoms in your mold. Evenly add the mixture to the tops of all the mold cavities and then go back and spread the tops with a spatula or butter knife until the you reach your desired look.

(Hint. For a truer pink avoid using carrier oils that have a deep yellow or green tint to them if making substitutions for the sweet almond oil. You’ll also want to avoid fragrance oils with vanilla in them if you don’t want your tops to turn tan to brown over time.)

This strawberry and chocolate fudge solid sugar scrub bars recipe makes fantastic treats for your skin! Indulge in all of the sugar and chocolate your heart desires with none of the calories.

If you are making my fudge solid sugar scrub bars to sell rather than to gift or for personal use, then you’ll need to be sure to label the bottoms of these to meet state and federal laws.
