How to Make Key Lime DIY Sugar Scrub Bars:

Zest 1 tablespoon from a lime onto a cutting board and set aside. Squeeze 1 teaspoon of juice from the lime into a small bowl and set aside.

Using a soap knife chop ½ cup goat milk soap into small chunks. Place in a microwave safe bowl, I recommend a large glass liquid measuring cup with a spout for easy pouring. Microwave soap at 20 second intervals for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring in between sessions until melted.

Remove from heat, working quickly before soap sets add ½ cup coconut oil, 2 tablespoons vitamin E oil and prepared freshly squeezed lime juice. Stir thoroughly to combine, then add 1 cup of sugar, prepared fresh lime zest, and 12 drops of optional lime essential oil.

Stir once more and carefully pour into silicone wedge mold (this is the one I used) or ice cube tray. Place filled silicone mold in the freezer to set for 30 minutes.

Once set remove from the freezer and pop out each key lime DIY sugar scrub bar. Bars will be firm but soft enough to smush. Store in an airtight container at room temperature or in the fridge to prolong shelf life.

Yields: 12 to 16 scrub bars depending on the silicone mold used.

 Cleanse, exfoliate, tighten, and replenish skin with key lime DIY sugar scrub bars.

      You can use coconut sugar, but it will make the bars browns instead. I use natural sugar to make mine.
