Herbal Brown Sugar Scrub Cube (so easy and convenient)

These little cubes are great because you are not digging your wet hands into a container in the shower to scrub.

You can sub out many herbs to make your favorite herbal sugar scrub.

Herbal Brown Sugar Scrub Cubes

2 Tbsp Cocoa butter
1½ Tbsp Coconut oil
1 tsp of your fav herb, dried (chamomile, rosemary, lavendar, rose, mint etc, or even coffee grounds or green tea)
½ Tbsp raw honey
¼ C brown sugar

Place a glass measuring cup or mason jar into a saucepan with water (makeshift double boiler). Heat on low heat and add cocoa butter, coconut oil and herbs until melted. Add honey and brown sugar. Pour into ice cube trays and freeze until solid.
Remove from mold.  Store in a ziplock bag in the fridge or freezer until ready to use.
Use one cube in the shower to scrub away.
You can add some salt in place of the sugar if you want a salt scrub. Salt is healthy for the skin but can be drying so go easy.

These trays are excellent for making these.  You can pop them out when finished and keep them in a ziplock bag in the freezer for grabbing before your shower. They make it easy to remove the cubes.
Peppermint and coffee are great for circulation! 
Go ahead and use essential oils when your herbs aren't in season or freeze a bunch to get you through winter.
