Want to make a body scrub? These oatmeal sugar scrub cubes exfoliate, moisturize, and leave your skin feeling all glow-y! Plus, they are fun to make and are great as a handmade gift (teacher gifts anyone?).
Ingredients (makes 12 cubes):
- ⅛ cup olive oil
- ⅛ pound (2 cubes) or any glycerin “melt and pour” soap base – I like the organic options like this one and those infused with shea butter like this one for extra moisture (whichever soap base you buy, just be sure to look at the ingredient list!)
- ½ cup pure cane sugar
- 1 tablespoon oatmeal (ground)
- Small round ice cube tray
- Glass measuring cup
- Lavender essential oil (optional) – I use Young Living essential oils
How to Make Oatmeal Sugar Scrub Cubes:
Grind your oatmeal in a blender or food processor.
Melt your soap base in a double boiler on the stove or in the microwave on high for 30-45 seconds (or until completely melted).
Remove from heat and mix in the olive oil, sugar and oatmeal. Stir well. If you want to scent your cubes, add 1-2 drops of a high quality lavender essential oil.
Pour into your ice cube tray and let set for about 2 hours.
Pop cubes out of tray and store in an airtight container.
Each cube is good for 1-2 uses as a moisturizing body scrub. Your skin will feel so lovely as a result!
Pop these into a mason jar and they make such a sweet little gift. Perfect for your teacher gifts, a handmade holiday present, just a little “I appreciate you” gift – whatever!
