Today I am sharing a quick body scrub bar recipe I found on YouTube from Goodful. I was looking through my old DIY playlist of recipes I wanted to try and there was a lot from 2018 -_- I’m very behind.
This recipe stood out to me because 1: I love anything rose and 2: I had some leftover goats milk soap base in my craft cabinet.
Goats milk is one of my favorite soap bases to use. Not only is it cleansing, but it’s also very moisturizing. Soap base recipes can be really fun, and great for beginners, once you’ve done a few recipes you will notice that you can start creating your own recipes easily.
I have recently started doing cold process soaps, which I enjoy more. The downside is it takes a lot longer to make, and the curing time is lengthy. Unlike with soap base recipes, where you can usually use the soaps within a few hours after they have hardened.
I didn’t have the exact mold they Goodful used in their video, which I feel may be a better fit if you want the convenience of holding it in your hand. My mold is a little smaller so it’d be easier to drop.
I also recommend running this soap under the water and lathering it in your hand before using it. This will help to remove the top layer which can be a little rough due to the sugar.
