Each fall, people flock to my Peppermint Sugar Scrub Bars tutorial for their gift-giving needs. Since that DIY beauty recipe is so popular, I decided to do a lavender version.

I love how relaxing and soothing lavender is in homemade beauty products like these DIY sugar scrub cubes. At the end of a long day, just hop in the shower or bath and pamper your skin while giving yourself a relaxing aromatherapy experience.

I love that sugar scrub cubes both cleanse and exfoliate your skin at the same time. Double duty!

Active Time: 15 minutes
Chilling Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
Makes: 3 Sugar Scrub Cubes



  • Double Boiler
  • Silicone Molds


  • Place about 5-6 large ice cube sized pieces of your melt and pour soap into a double boiler and heat over medium until completely melted (should equal 1/3 cup, a little more is fine but no less).
  • Remove the pan from the heat, then stir in your sweet almond oil, vitamin e oil, lavender essential oil and a dried lavender.
  • Quickly mix in your sugar and pour into your silicone molds (once the sugar is added, the mixture hardens quickly, so be sure to work fast).
  • Set the silicone mold in the freezer for 15 minutes to harden the sugar scrub cubes.
  • Remove the silicone mold from the freezer and push up on the bottom of your molds to remove each sugar scrub cube.

  1. When you say 1/3 of a cup of melt & pour soap—-question is: is that 1/3 measurement after the M&P Soap is melted or is it before melting and if so how do you measure the 1/3 cup? –grating it OR?????
    Sorry if I sound dumb but am perplexed –weight of soap would be very helpful.
    Thank you as this recipe sounds very nice.
