These shower cubes are all the rage this holiday season and they make an EXCELLENT gift. It’s pretty easy to make your own, AND you can customize with seasonal flavorings like peppermint. Pair them with your soaps, candles and more for a wonderful gift that people can use!
**The ingredients you will be using will be all-natural, chemical-free and gentle enough for your whole body.
- 8 oz of All Natural SFIC White Glycerin Melt and Pour Soap Base
- 1 cup of White Sugar
- 1/2 Cup Sweet Almond Oil
- Peppermint Essential Oil– 2 Tablespoons (feel free to use any essential oil, we prefer the Supreme Peppermint oil for this recipe)
- Ice Cube Tray or Clamshells
- Shimmery Merlot Soap Color
- Cut white glycerin soap base into small chunks, place into glass mixing bowl and microwave at 20-30 intervals. The glass bowl will be very hot, please use caution.
- Add the Shimmery Merlot Soap Color into the soap mixture, microwave and stir until completely melted and smooth.
- Next, add the Peppermint Essential Oil – 2 Tablespoons is all you need.
- Add the Sweet Almond Oil to your White Sugar.
- Pour into soap mixture and blend. The mixture should have a wet sand-like feel.
- Next, spoon mixture into tray and press down. The mixture will harden within a few hours and pop right out of the tray leaving you with those adorable little cubes.
Take into shower gently rub on the body to exfoliate your skin and rinse clean. These cubes are great for dry knees and elbows. They even have a great effect on people who have skin conditions such as psoriasis.

I THINK THIS IS AWESOME PLEASE KEEP IT COMING.
I have some Melt & Pour shea butter that does not lather and I’m trying to find ways to use it. Can I use it in this recipe? Thank you.
Hi, Hazel! Yes, that would be a great use for it. Additionally, if you add castor oil, about 1 tbsp to any of our melt and pours they usually lather! I tried this recently with our goat milk Melt & Pour and it worked! Hope this helps!
I just made this recipe with shea butter melt & pour. Is the soap base supposed to be really hot or cooled when the sugar is added? Everything harden pretty quickly and by the end of filling the cubes I couldn’t get the mixture to blend into the cube. Sort of clumps & layers. Is that the way it’s supposed to be? Waiting for them to dry now. (P.S. washed my hands afterwards with what was on my hands, felt awesome.)
