I love sugar scrubs but I hate paying $15 for them! And really? It is absolute nonsense to do so. They are SO easy to make. This DIY Peppermint Sugar Scrub will take you about 5 mins to mix up, uses just three main ingredients and is the PERFECT gift for the holidays!
DIY Peppermint Sugar Scrub Ingredients:
(contains affiliate links)
- 1 jar-I used a 4″Dia. x 4″H red clamp lid glass canister from Cost Plus World Market. The measuring spoons are adorable but certainly not essential. You can get them here.
- 2 cups RAW Sugar-I used the brand Sugar in the Raw
- 3/4 cup FRACTIONATED Coconut Oil-this is the kind stable in the liquid form.
- 20 drops Peppermint Essential Oil OR 1 tbsp Peppermint Extract. I personally think the essential oil produces a better product.
DIY Peppermint Sugar Scrub Directions:
- Add sugar to jar
- Add oil to jar
- Add your Peppermint oil or extract to jar
- Stir well
- Seal and decorate jar. Add a ribbon and one of these adorable Christmas printable tags from my friend Jen
Viola! I am guessing one of the most easy-peasy gifts you have ever made.
