These Peppermint Sugar Scrub Cubes are perfectly portioned for 1 shower. They cleanse skin and make it silky smooth! Each one is perfectly portioned to grab on the way into the shower and BONUS! They cleanse skin too! And double bonus, they’re super easy to make.
These are the very basic steps, below we go into detail about each stage and what each step involves.
Summary: Easy Peppermint Sugar Scrub Cubes
1 cup I sugar
1/2 cup I shea butter melt and pour soap base
1/3 cup I Vitamin E oil (you can substitute grapeseed, coconut, almond or olive oil if you prefer)
5 drops I peppermint essential oil
1 tsp. of optional pink (or color of your choice or mineral clays) and a little bit of sheen (Mica) I used the soap mold from my lotion bars but you can use a cupcake mold, ice cube mold, or whatever you prefer as long as it’s silicone (the mixture could get stuck inside of other materials).
Cut half block of shea butter soap base into small equal pieces (pieces will be about the size of a bar of soap and you will use 1 of the bars). If that lack of exact precision makes you twitch, you can weigh the pieces.
Measure out remaining ingredients, cooking show style. Add drops of peppermint oil and color (optional) into Vitamin E oil and mix well.
Microwave shea butter soap base for 30 - 40 seconds or until melted, stirring every 10 seconds. Pour Vitamin E Oil mixture into soap base and mix well.
Have your mold close at hand and add sugar into soap/oil mixture. Stir well and FAST and immediately pour into mold. The mixture hardens very quickly so if it hardens before it has all been poured into the molds, you can simply spoon it into molds and press down with the back of a spoon to compact the cube together.
Allow to set for at least 1 hour. Turn mold upside down over a cutting board and gently press on the bottom to press out the sugar scrub bars.
Cut bars into cubes. It will vary depending on the size of your mold; cut down the middle horizontally and then into thirds giving me 6 single-use sugar scrub cubes per bar.
And that’s it! You will want to keep them sealed in an airtight container (outside of the shower is best to avoid extra moisture) and pop one out for a pepperminty fun shower!
These make a great gift too, put them in a jar with a pretty label and you have a great hostess, holiday or birthday gift.
