These DIY Exfoliating Apricot Seed Sugar Scrub Cubes are easy to make and they do wonders for rough, dry skin. Try them for your next spa day!

Homemade apricot seed sugar scrub cubes for exfoliating skin

When I was a teen, I was obsessed with a certain apricot seed face scrub. So I’ve recently started experimenting with ground apricot seed as an exfoliant, and these Apricot Seed Sugar Scrub Cubes are a product of that experimentation.

I’ve made many sugar scrub cubes recipes, but this is the first one using apricot seed powder. It gives them some extra exfoliating power. In addition to being used as an exfoliant, these apricot seed sugar scrub cubes also work as a skin cleanser. I love beauty products with multiple purposes.

You can scent them however you like. I used sweet orange essential oil, but you can use the scent (and color) of your choice!
