Sugar cubes are a nice modification of a regular viscous scrub. It smells like you want, you can give it special properties suitable for only you. Great!
I love making sugar cubes! It is super easy! Let's take the next ratio soap base to oil to sugar - 1:0,7:2.
This would be a great gentle sugar scrub. For 3.5 oz. of it you'll need:
1.1 oz. (32 g) transparent soap base
0,77 oz. (22 g) macadamia nut oil
1.9 oz. (55 g) white sugar
1 ml rosewood essential oil
Please remember that you have only 3 months to use this scrub. After 3 months you have to throw unused scrub away.
So! First you have to melt soap base. On the picture below you can see me using the white base instead of transparent. This is because my yellow colorant react with white base only.
Next, you add macadamia nut oil to the melted soap base and mix it really, really well. Then, add your colorant. Please pay attention to the picture below - the consistency is liquid and greasy. No worries, that is okay.
Now add the essential oil that you chose and prepare yourself to do everything quick.
After adding sugar your scrub will thicken up very fast, that's why it is better to have your mold ready and move quick. After adding sugar the consistency will look like at the picture below.
Now spray the mold with rubbing alcohol and pour your scrub into the mold fast.
Leave it alone for about 4 hours. After that you can cut it and put it in the jar. Please remember that you have only 3 months to use this scrub. After 3 months you have to throw unused scrub away.
