How to Make Peach Cobbler Sugar Scrub Cubes
Get your arms and legs ready for swimsuit season with these delightful sugar scrub cubes! These adorable cubes are so quick and easy to make with melt and pour soap and are made extra-moisturizing with shea butter and avocado oil. Your skin will be positively glowing after your shower. This recipe is scented with delicious Georgia Peach Fragrance Oil and made with light brown sugar to make you think of your favorite summer cobbler. Feel free to substitute any other fragrance oil of your choice. You can also substitute another kind of sugar, if you like, but we found the color is a little too dark with dark brown sugar. Similarly, clear melt and pour soap works perfectly well in this recipe, but looks better with white sugar than with brown sugar. Feel free to substitute a different butter or liquid oil in this recipe if you choose.
These sugar scrub cubes make the perfect quick gift because they come in their own packaging. If you prefer, you can pop the cubes out of the package and place them in jars like these. This recipe will make enough cubes to fill two jars.

Use caution when handling heated oils. Use disposable pipettes when dispensing fragrance oils. Do not place undiluted fragrance 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 avocado 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 Georgia Peach fragrance oil. Vigorously stir to combine.
Step 3 – pour the Cubes
Working quickly, pour the scrub mixture in to 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!
