Tips to Make Pink Body Scrub Cubes

  • You have to let these body scrub cubes dry in the mold for at least 24 hours, 48 for those of you who live in a more humid climate.
  • If you want to make these a gift, be sure to give them inside an airtight container like a mason jar, that way the end-user can keep them in it 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.
  • You can even switch out the coconut oil for almond oil or olive oil, if you like, just know that using different oils will create different smells when combined with your essential oils so it might not be the exact same as what I have.
  • 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.
  • Definitely get yourself a silicone mold to make these sugar scrub cubes, as an ice cube tray really won’t work.
  • Whatever you do, do not use food coloring in your rose gold sugar scrub cubes. Food coloring will color your hands and body and the bathtub–then it will all need some scrubbing. That’s why I like to use soap colorant.

  6. Stir the soap into the oil and sugar mixture until soap is well incorporated. 
  7. Sprinkle the gold flake glitter into each cavity of the mold.
  8. Add your soap/sugar mixture into each mold.

  10. Allow the cubes to dry in the mold for at least 24-48 hours.
  11. To release the cubes, gently twist the mold like an ice cube tray and when each cube begins to come out, pull gently. photo collage tutorial of how to make gold flecked pink body scrub cubes
