These strawberry & champagne scented solid sugar scrub bridesmaid favors are made with a combination of organic argan oil, moringa oil, sugar and a detergent free buttermilk soap base for a luxurious sugar scrub that your bridesmaids are sure to love! (Or give them as teacher gifts for Valentine’s Day!)
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!)
Ready to make these amazing solid sugar scrubs? Here’s how!
Strawberries & Champagne Solid Sugar Scrub Recipe
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
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!
