Solid Sugar Scrub

In a convienient single use size!  And only three ingredients.

I used the directions I found here, at Homework.  Carolyn used canola oil, I used coconut oil instead, along with sugar and grated soap.

 I just made a small test batch.  The amounts listed in the instructions made six in my little mold.
 How cute are these???
They hardened up over night and I stored then in an old plastic container.  I don't like glass in the bathroom.  That is a disaster waiting to happen in my hands.
The only thing I would change about these is the soap I used.  I found the Pears to smell kind of medicinal and I don't like that.  Other than that I just love these.  I don't even require a moisturizer after my shower because of the coconut oil already in there.  My daughter loves them too, so I need to make a big batch next time! 
Thanks for looking!

  1. I made a batch. They are so good,thanks for sharing . I used pears soap in the making,been using it for years,your right the smell is medicinal,the company got bought out several years ago,they changed the formula,pity as it used to have a mild pleasant perfume .

    1. I am happy that you made and like these! Thank you for letting me know.
      I'm glad that you told me that the company changed the soap. I remember liking it as a teenager and was really surprised at the scent when I made these. I have made a large batch since posting this, using the remainder of that bar of soap and we are down to three scrubs now, I think. Time to make more! My daughter and I still love these.


I love comments! It is nice to know that you are thinking of me.
Thanks for taking the time to leave one.
