Hopefully you aren’t like me and you’ve had all your presents bought and wrapped for weeks. But if you happen to be looking at your list and wondering what to get those last few people, this Homemade Peppermint Sugar Scrub is the bomb-diggity, y’all!
It’s super simple to make and it smells absolutely ah-mazing. It’s perfect for teacher gifts, co-worker gifts, neighbor gifts, etc. And if you happen to be “Mrs. I’ve-got-it-all-together” and you don’t have any more gifts to buy (or make), make it for yourself. You deserve some pampering for being so on top of things!
And by golly, doesn’t it just look so cute layered in a pretty jar?
Homemade Peppermint Sugar Scrub
- 1 1/2 cups white sugar
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 5 drops peppermint essential oil
- 1 teaspoon vitamin e oil
- 2 drops red food coloring (or you could use beet juice or raspberry juice)
- Homemade Peppermint Sugar Scrub printables
- white sticker paper
Feel free to use more or less of any of the ingredients. I like my sugar scrub more coarse and not so "wet" so these ratios work perfectly for me.
I’ve been purchasing my sugar scrubs because I didn’t know it was so easy to make. But seriously, it doesn’t get much easier than this. So super simple and the end result is a lovely, aromatic, homemade exfoliant.
This is one of those times when a scratch ‘n sniff function would really come in handy on the internet. It’s a great way to feel energized and rejuvenated during your morning shower!
The gentle exfoliation from the sugar and the moisturizing effects from the oils leave the skin feeling soft and oh so smooth.
Totally not bad for a gift that costs less than $5 … right? I always buy my jars from Hobby Lobby during their 50% glass sales to save even more!
