How to Make DIY Christmas Tree Sugar Scrub Bars
First, pour the desired amount of sprinkles into each of the tree shapes on the silicone mould.
Melt your soap base in the microwave for anywhere between 15-30 seconds. After that, add the sugar, 2 drops of soap colourant, fragrance, and olive oil. Mix these together with a silicone spoon or spatula.
Add this paste to the Christmas tree moulds. Be sure to fill each cavity in the mould completely. If you mixture starts to harden while you’re handling it, microwave it for 10 seconds to make it liquid again.
Once they’re hardened, pop them out of the mould and store them in an airtight container.
