Author:
Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 5 drops peppermint essential oil
  • 1 teaspoon vitamin e oil (23,000 IU)
  • 2 drops red food coloring (or you could use beet juice or raspberry juice)
Optional
  • Homemade Peppermint Sugar Scrub printables
  • white sticker paper
Instructions
  1. If the coconut oil is solid, melt in the microwave for 20 seconds or until it becomes a liquid. Pour into medium size bowl. Add peppermint essential oil and vitamin e oil and stir to combine. Add sugar to bowl and stir until combined.
  2. Divide into two equal halves. Add red food coloring to one batch and stir until the coloring is evenly distributed throughout. If you want a darker color, feel free to use more red food coloring.
  3. Begin filling jar and alternate layers of white and red sugar. Between layers use a spoon and press down around edges to get a clean line.
  4. Print the Homemade Peppermint on white sticker paper and cut out. Remove adhesive and apply to the top of the jar. Finish off by tying twine or jute to the jar for a festive look.
Notes
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.
