homemade sugar cube scrubSugar Cube Scrubs Recipe

In this blog, you will learn how to make your very own sugar cube scrubs.  And, to do this is really very easy; taking only a few simple ingredients.

You can cater your sugar cube scrubs with various skin loving oils.  For this recipe, we will be using Apricot Kernel Oil-  a luxurious, conditioning oil that absorbs very nicely into your skin.  Grapeseed Oil- a natural oil that is filled with antioxidants (great for anti-aging products) and an oil that is also moisturizing.  Then, finally Sesame Seed Oil- another conditioning oil with the benefits of both antioxidants and vitamins.  To view the complete list of oils that can be used and their benefits, please click on this link

Besides the sugar which works to exfoliate, the other solid in this recipe is soap.  Cocoa Butter melt and pour soap; the one that was used in this recipe, provides a very nice lather.  To see the full list of the variety of melt and pour soap that could be used, please click on this link.

Mold wise, the 24 brownie bites silicone mold was used to make 12 sugar cubes.  But, any mold, even an ice tray will work for this recipe.  However, please note:  using a different mold will vary your total number of sugar cubes output.

Now, here is the recipe, steps, and photos of how to make homemade sugar cube scrubs.

Supplies Needed
Scale
Microwaveable Safe Bowl
Spoon
Spatula
Mixing Bowl

Recipe

170 grams Sugar
28 grams Apricot Kernel Oil
21 grams Grapeseed Oil
7 grams Sesame Seed Oil
85 grams Cocoa Butter M&P Soap
10 grams NG Warm Vanilla Sugar Scent (or any body safe fragrance oil)
2 grams Vanilla Powder
10 grams Vanilla White Color Stabilizer (used to stabilize any discoloration that may occur in the sugar cubes.  This is due to the vanillin content of Warm Vanilla Sugar.)
1 drop of any FUN Soap Colorant (We used Yellow Oxide)

Step 1:  Have your mold ready in your work space.  Then, weigh out your sugar in a bowl.  Set this aside.

Step 7:  Allow this to harden.  Then, carefully pop the sugar cube scrubs out of the mold.  Place them into a jar until you are ready to use them.

To use:  In the bath or shower:  Grab one cube, slightly wet it.  Then, begin rubbing it all over your skin.  The soap will cleanse, the sugar will exfoliate, and the oils will moisturize and condition your skin.

Enjoy your homemade sugar cube scrubs!
