Solid Sugar Scrub Cubes

Supplies you will need:
1 - 2lb block of melt & pour soap base (pinemeadows.net/bases.php)
4 fl oz golden jojoba oil (pinemeadows.net/soap.php)
2 1/2 cups - 3 cups of sugar
1/4 fl oz favorite fragrance or essential oil (pinemeadows.net/oils.php)
2 lb rectangle tray item #2525 (pinemeadows.net/misc.php)
soap cutter item #2006 (pinemeadows.net/soap.php)
*optional: FD&C color (pinemeadows.net/soap.php)

Melt your soap base using a double boiling method (place a container into a water bath) , you want to melt it slowly and avoid overheating the soap base. When your base has melted, stir in your golden jojoba oil and then add your sugar. Next you will remove from heat source and add your fragrance or essential oil. If you chose to color your cubes then add your colorant also. Pour the mix into the mold and allow it to set up. When your sugar cube scrub has set up (approx. 1 hour) you can remove it from the tray (if it will not pop out easily place the mold into your freezer for a minute, this will contract the soap and make it pop right out). Use your soap cutter to cut your finished cubes out into the shape of sugar cubes or larger if you prefer. Place into a cute display jar and put them in your bathroom to use.
To use:

Take a sugar cube and scrub anywhere that you have rough, dry patches of skin. It will remove dried skin and reveal a softer skin.
