Although, we’ve found it be inconvenient for the shower. Thus the making of sugar scrub cubes! They are the perfect size for the shower and simple enough to make. Share an irresistible sweet treat with your friends that won’t add to the waist line! Fill a mason jar with a handful rich exfoliating Honey Lavender sugar scrub cubes.
