How to Make Solid Coffee Sugar Scrubs:

This Cardamom & Spice Solid Coffee Sugar Scrub Recipe will yield seven solid coffee sugar scrubs.

Using a digital scale, begin by weighing out the cocoa and mango butters into a large glass Pyrex measuring cup. Heat at reduced power in the microwave until the butters have melted. (Alternately you can use a double boiler.)

Now weigh out the sugar, spice mix and coffee and stir into the melted butters.

Allow the mixture to cool slightly then weigh out the fragrance oil and add to the mixture. Stir again until the ingredients and fragrance are thoroughly incorporated.

Next, place your heart mold onto a cutting board or small cookie sheet for easy transport.

Then pour the melted scrub mixture evenly into seven of the cavities of your heart silicone mold.

Using the cutting board for stability, transfer your mold to the refrigerator. Refrigerate your solid coffee sugar scrubs until they’ve completely solidified.

To use these solid coffee sugar scrubs, simply massage one heart shaped scrub over damp skin after bathing paying extra attention to rough spots and problem areas.

Prefer bath melts? Simply omit the the sugar and coffee from this solid coffee sugar scrub recipe and add one to two bath melts to warm bath water as desired.
