Coconut ice DIY sugar cube scrub

Last week I shared one of my old fave recipes – the DIY sugar cube scrub – on Instagram and Facebook and quite a few of you guys wanted a more detailed recipe. I’m excited that so many of you want to make it. This one is great for gifts too, so keep it in mind for gift giving season.

I do have to warn you the coconut oil melts at about 36˚C/97˚F, which is why it is so lovely to use in skincare, because it melts on contact, but this can be a bit tricky when storing this little number. However, I give it to people and let them know that because it doesn’t have any weird chemical stabilisers it may go soft and that it’s fine just to use like any old body scrub or put in the fridge in hot weather.DIY sugar cube scrub | Blah Blah Magazine

You don’t have to use an essential oil or you could use your favourite essential oil, but I love rose geranium in this, because it does the sweetie, girly thing so nicely. It reminds me of having Iced Vovo biscuits with my nan when I was a little girl.DIY sugar cube scrub | Blah Blah Magazine

The food colouring is also optional. I used the beetroot powder from this post, because I had it.DIY sugar cube scrub | Blah Blah Magazine
