Tips to Make Mermaid Body Scrub Cubes
Before I start with the tips, let me just highlight this fun fact: these mermaid scrub cubes pair perfectly with my popular mermaid bath bombs. You can make them one of two ways – get the easy recipe and tutorial here.
- These mermaid body scrub cubes absolutely must dry in the mold for at least 24 hours before you try to pop them out (or 48 hours for anyone that lives in a more humid climate like around the coast or anywhere else it’s humid).
- If you want to make this mermaid sugar scrub as a gift, be sure to package them inside an airtight container like a mason jar, so that your gift-recipient can keep them in the container AND un-melty until they’re ready to use them.
- I like to use shea butter, but you can use cocoa butter or avocado oil, your choice. If you do choose to use something different, be aware it can affect the smells. You can even switch out the coconut oil for almond, grapeseed, or olive oil, if you like. Just think about their natural smells when combined with your essential oils before you take the plunge. Also, look up the shelf life of that oil to help you determine how long these will keep.
- I like to use melt and pour soap base because it’s easier to work with and you can melt it in the microwave (you don’t even need a double boiler or anything!). But you can use goats milk soap, too, if you prefer. Just don’t use a regular bar of soap…you won’t get nicely melted soap that way.
- Don’t use an ice cube tray to make these – get yourself a silicone mold. You want to be able to pop the mermaid sugar scrub cubes out of the mold by gently pressing upward from the bottom. And you want the cubes to be pretty, sharp-edged.
- Whatever you do, do not use food coloring in your mermaid sugar scrub cubes. Food coloring will color your hands, a body, AND a bathtub. Use soap colorant or mica powder.
