Peppermint Sugar Scrub Recipe

We all have the hard to buy for people on our Christmas list. One thing I like to get those people is a Bath and Beauty products. This year, I thought I would try making it myself. I was surprised at how easy it was to make! I thought I would share the sugar scrub recipe with you. I bet you may even have the ingredients already!

DIY Peppermint Sugar Scrub Recipe

You can give this sugar scrub any scent you depending on you want. Just simply change up the essential oil that you use. I choose peppermint since it is getting close to Christmas time and I love the smell.

Sugar Scrub Recipe

What you will need:

  • 2 cups of white sugar
  • 1/4 to a 1/3 cup of coconut oil
  • peppermint essential oil

Instructions:

  1. In a large bowl, slowly mix your coconut oil into your sugar. Mix until you have a soft consistency but no oily.
  2. Add several drops of peppermint essential oil and mix it in.

Now that your sugar scrub is made, all you have to do is place the scrub in a nice jar. Tie a ribbon around the jar with a tag and you have a nice gift to give. If you would like to use the tag I made, you can print them out here.

Have you tried making any bath or beauty products?
