Why Make Solid Sugar Scrub Cubes?

Solid Sugar Scrub Cubes have become the new trend and are now taking the place of traditional sugar scrubs. One of the main reasons is that these scrubs are in a solid form so there’s no separation and less mess. It also means it’s less likely that you will transfer water into your sugar scrub during usage since you are simply removing one or two cubes at a time for use and then resealing the container before use.

While there are a handful of recipes for solid sugar scrubs floating around, I came up with my own recipe that I’d like to share with you. It’s not greasy when applied and easy to make. It’s also gotten a lot of great feedback from others.

Feedback on my Solid Shea Butter Sugar Scrub Cube Recipe

My mother LOVES this!!! She opened up the container and said the cucumber smelled like she had just cut one up. So fresh and clean. Like me she uses her hands a lot and they’re very rough. One use and they’re now baby soft.

These are the most amazing bath item I have ever used. I am a macrame artist and have very rough hands. After a single use my hands felt like silk. AMAZING! I used them on my feet and legs and they are baby soft. HIGHLY RECOMMENDING THESE! I have sensitive skin and there is no negative reaction, which in my case is very rare. THANK YOU!!!!

Solid Shea Butter Sugar Scrub Cube Recipe

© Rebecca D. Dillon

Ingredients:

2.5oz natural shea butter soap base
4oz. refined shea butter
16oz. white granulated sugar
2 Tablespoons fractionated coconut oil
1 Tablespoon skin safe fragrance oils (or 1/2 Tablespoon essential oils) of choice
Pinch of cosmetic mica powder

Instructions:

I use my soap molds to make these. One batch fits into two molds. You can use a square baking pan or two disposable tin loaf pans instead. Line your molds with plastic wrap or food service film taping the film at the top of the mold. (Alternately you can use decorative silicone molds for this.)

Weigh out your melt and pour soap base using a scale, then melt in the microwave or a double boiler. Weigh out your shea butter and melt. Stir the shea butter into the melt and pour soap base.

Measure out your fractionated coconut oil and fragrance if desired using a Tablespoon measurement and stir into the melted shea butter and soap base. In a separate bowl, weigh out the sugar.

If using a pigment for color, cut in a pinch of color using a butter knife or spatula. (Keep in mind if your fragrance oil contains vanilla, your sugar scrub cubes will darken and turn brown depending on amount of vanilla content.)

Finally, quickly pour the sugar into the shea/soap mixture and mix well. Scoop into your mold and level with a spatula, then place in the refrigerator until solidified.

Once your scrub has solidified, gently remove the scrub from the molds by lifting it out of the mold with the plastic wrap from the top edges of the plastic wrap. Then remove the plastic wrap from the scrub. Use a Chef’s knife to then cut the scrub into cubes. Place cubes in an airtight container until use.

To use these scrub cubes, simply crush one or two cubes in your wet hands and slather over your body.

If you prefer to use natural, organic ingredients in your recipes, then I highly recommend Mountain Rose Herbs. They supply a variety of certified organic soapmaking and bath and body ingredients for the highest quality products.

When I am stressed I do the obvious things. I read, I veg in front of Netflix watching bad movies and sci-fi series that I never would have known about if not for the internet. I nap – sometimes a little too much. I try not to yell and snap at the those around me trying to be helpful when I just want to be left alone. But days like today, when my life is in complete chaos… Days like this the little things don’t help.
So it’s days like these that I clean. Yes, clean. Cleaning I guess is therapeutic for me. It’s the one thing that allows me to make everything right and put things in their place. And it could explain why there are so many people with OCD in this less than simple world.
green clean (not a meth lab)However, not only is cleaning therapeutic, but it’s also necessary. That is, unless you enjoy your bare feet sticking to the floor and maggots breeding in your fruit bowl. Cleaning, however, can also be crafty. That is if you’re making your own green and clean solutions for everything from the bathroom to the kitchen to the laundry. DIY cleaning works, it’s less expensive and it’s non-toxic.
With that I want to share an awesome collection of DIY Green Cleaning Recipes that I found at Re-Nest. There are 25 recipes for cleaning everything in your house from the kitchen, bathroom, and laundry room to your living room and specialty cleaning. You can grab the collection of all 25 recipes and articles here. Also be sure to check out my own recipe for making diy laundry detergent using handmade soaps.
I also recommend checking out Sew Chatty Blog for a free printable cleaning chart. It serves as a handy reminder and to do list making it easier to keep those everyday chores on task. Plus, be sure to visit Design Finch Blog if you’re looking to label your cleaners for easy organization and something far cuter than black Sharpie scribble. Not only does Design Finch offer a few additional homemade cleaning recipes, but the bottom of the article contains a handful of links to free printable labels for your handmade household cleaners. Additionally, you may also want to check out my blog article from last summer, Eco-friendly alternatives to everyday conveniences. It contains a great tutorial on crafting your own washable Swiffer cover using a loom plus re-usable and unique product ideas.
