Peppermint Sugar Scrub....

It seems that I have my seasons reversed.  I created all of my posts that would be perfect for Christmas during the spring and summer!

Back in June, I made this wonderful Peppermint Sugar Scrub.  I found the recipe on Pinterest and added my own special little touch.


It smelled wonderful and tasted great...wait, you're not supposed to know it tasted great! ;-)

I also shared this fabulous video...



No, I'm not going to make you travel back in time to get the recipe for this colorful sugar scrub, I will share it here to save you some time.  Besides, you are going to need the extra time to make up several jars of this scrub to give to family and friends for Christmas.


PEPPERMINT SUGAR SCRUB
1 cup of sugar 
1/4 cup of coconut oil 
4-6 drops of peppermint essential oil 
4 drops of red food coloring

Melt coconut oil in microwave safe dish for 30 seconds or until liquid.  Mix in essential oil.  Combine with sugar in a mixing bowl, until sugar is completely mixed with oils.  Divide scrub in half.  Mix one half with red food coloring and stir well.  Fill jar with red mixture and white mixture as you desire.  Store in an airtight container.


This scrub is a wonderful gift...put it in a pretty jar, tie on a colorful bow and deliver.  You could even print out the recipe on a small card and tie it on to the jar.


This scrub is very invigorating and is perfect for those mornings when you feel a little sluggish!

I love sharing cool stuff with friends!

    1. LOL @ peppermint high...I love it and that is exactly what it is!! Oh no! I did put mine in glass jars and didn't even think about them sliding around and breaking. I will remember that for future scrubs that I make...nonbreakable containers!!

  11. Benita,
    This is soooo pretty and I love peppermint everything. I use peppermint soap daily and when it is so hot in Texas in the Summer, it has a wonderful cooling essence!
