Use caution when handling heated oils. Use disposable pipets when dispensing essential oils. Do not place undiluted essential oils in plastic ware. Carefully weigh all ingredients before you start working.

Step 1 – Melt the Butters and Oils and Soap
Combine the shea butter and apricot oil in a funnel pitcher. Microwave on high for about 90 seconds, stirring every 30 seconds, or until fully melted.

Add the melt and pour soap chunks. Microwave another 15-30 seconds, stirring every 15 seconds. Vigorously stir the soap mixture to ensure the soap and oil is emulsified.

Step 2 – Add the sugar and fragrance
Add the sugar to the soap mixture. Stir to combine.
Add the essential oil. Vigorously stir to combine. Add 6-10 drops of True Red liquid colorant. Stir to combine.

Step 3 – Pour the cubes
Working quickly, pour the scrub mixture into the cavities of the clamshell molds. Don’t worry if you spill – cleanup is easy!

Tip: If the mixture becomes too thick to pour, microwave it for 5 seconds.

Allow the molds to sit undisturbed for 5 minutes, then take a paper towel and clean the edges of the packaging. Allow to set for another 20 minutes. The scrub cubes can be popped out of the molds and stored in jars, or the covers of the clamshell molds can be snapped shut.

To use, squeeze one or two cubes in the palm of your hand. Rub over wet skin, rinse clean, and enjoy soft, glowing skin!

How to Make Festive Peppermint Sugar Scrub Cubes

Are you on the hunt for a quick and delightful gift that everyone on your list will adore? Look no further than these peppermint sugar scrub cubes! Crafted with nourishing ingredients like melt-and-pour soap base, shea butter, and apricot kernel oil, these cubes are not only charming but also incredibly moisturizing. Your skin will feel radiant and refreshed after each use. Scented with the invigorating essence of peppermint essential oil, these cubes exude a crisp, candy cane aroma that perfectly captures the festive spirit.

You may opt to use a white melt-and-pour soap base for a more subtle, pastel hue or stick with a clear base for vibrant color. Feel free to personalize your batch with any other fragrance oil or essential oil that suits your holiday mood. If shea butter isn't your preference or if you're looking to experiment, other butters or liquid oils can be substituted to achieve similar results.

These sugar scrub cubes come in their own handy packaging, ideal for slipping into stockings or assembling into gift jars. This recipe yields enough cubes to fill two sizeable jars, making it perfect for spreading holiday cheer.

How to Use Your DIY Sugar Scrub Cubes

To use, simply take a single cube into the shower or bath and gently massage over wet skin, focusing on rough areas like elbows and heels. The cube will slightly melt upon contact with warm water, releasing the scrubby sugar and luxurious oils, which exfoliate and moisturize your skin simultaneously. After use, rinse off any residue and enjoy the glowing, softened skin. These cubes are ideally used within six months for maximum freshness and efficacy.

Exploring the Benefits of Peppermint Sugar Scrub Cubes

Nourishing Ingredients Deliver Maximum Skin Benefits
The combination of natural ingredients in sugar scrub cube recipes provides numerous skincare benefits. Sugar acts as a natural exfoliant, sloughing away dead skin cells without causing irritation, making it suitable for most skin types. Shea butter is renowned for its deep moisturizing properties, while apricot kernel oil, rich in vitamins and fatty acids, helps to nourish and soothe the skin. Peppermint oil not only imparts a refreshing fragrance but also offers cooling properties that can help to calm the skin.

Why Choose Sugar Scrub Cubes?
Opting for sugar scrub cubes over traditional scrubs offers a convenient and less messy alternative. Each cube provides the perfect portion for one use, ensuring that you never use too much or too little. This also helps in preserving the other cubes from water contamination, extending their shelf life and effectiveness.

Tips for Perfect Sugar Scrub Cubes Every Time
  1. Temperature Control: When melting your soap base, ensure the temperature is not too high. Too high a temperature can cause the sugar to dissolve when added, reducing the scrub’s effectiveness.
  2. Customization: Don't hesitate to experiment with different scents or oils. Lavender for relaxation or citrus for a refreshing zing are great alternatives.
  3. Packaging: To enhance the gifting experience, consider creative packaging ideas such as decorative jars, custom labels, and ribbons.
  4. Storage: Keep your cubes in a cool, dry place to maintain their consistency and fragrance.
