Recipe | Scrub up cups!

Written by Chelsea on November 15th, 2018.      11 comments

 

Scrub up nicely with these handy individual body scrub cups. Have fun experimenting with different colours and scents, and wrapping creatively to give as gifts!


You will need:
Small moulds (muffin tray works well)
Medium sized pot or pan

Ingredients:
½ cup organic coconut oil
½ cup organic cocoa butter deodorized
½ cup pumice
½ cup dead sea salt

Optional:
1 tablespoon of clay or colour of your choice
10-20 drops of essential oil of your choice

Method

Melt the coconut oil and the cocoa butter. Allow to cool slightly (but still liquid) and then mix in your pumice and salt. Add clay and essential oil if using.*

The pumice and salt will drop to the bottom and the liquid will sit on top. If you pour it now the same thing will happen in your cups, which is okay if you want a nice flat top on your cup (see photo on right illustrating the difference). Otherwise, wait for the liquid to start solidifying (you can pop it in the fridge for a few minutes) and then stir it all together so that it’s more like a paste, then spoon them into your muffin tray.

Place in the fridge/freezer and let them harden.

We highly recommend keeping these in the fridge when you’re not using them because they will melt!

*I split mine into four different colours and scents to experiment. I added about a teaspoon of clay and five drops of essential oil to each to make:
  • Green clay and peppermint oil (lovely invigorating scent to wake you up in the morning!)
  • Purple clay & lavender oil (very relaxing.)
  • Turmeric (just ¼ of a teaspoon or it will stain the skin!) & yuzu oil (vibrant and citrusy.)
  • White clay, a ½ tsp of zinc oxide & vanilla oil (sweet and luxurious.)

It seems like a good recipe to try for me, especially being a housemaid I'm running out of new dishes. I do work as a <a href="https://www.housekeepingco.com">maid in Dubai</a> in a family where I'm managing various housekeeping jobs such as cleaning, cooking, taking care of kids, etc. So, I hope to try this one when I enter the kitchen next time.

Thank You
Mary
