Supplies for a Solid Sugar Scrub

You can use any mold for your cubes but we like this simple square-shaped mold. We’ve used it in a few other solid sugar scrub cube recipes and it works each time without fail.

  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup shea butter soap based (chopped)
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • apple fragrance or flavoring (we got ours here on Amazon)

How to Use Sugar Scrub Cubes

Remove 1 or 2 from an airtight container. Gently crush them in your hands – you don’t need to crush them completely.

Massage the mixture over your skin in a small, circular motion. Rinse with warm water and pat dry. Follow up with your favorite moisturizer.

Note: if you’re gifting these, include a note with the instructions for use above.

How Long Will Sugar Scrub Cubes Last? 

As long as you don’t change the oil I used in the recipe, they should last at least 6 months with no change to scent or texture when stored in a completely airtight container.

A general rule of thumb is that a non-water-based sugar scrub has a shelf life of the carrier oil used. For example, if you were to use hazelnut oil the scrub would only last 3 months maximum.

And just in case anyone has this question: Even though I added vitamin E oil as an anti-oxidant and it will help to reduce the oxidation of the oil, it isn’t a preservative. The benefits of using it are for the skin.
