Ingredients for Homemade Peppermint Sugar Scrub:
- 1/2 cup coconut oil, divided
- 1-1/2 cup white sugar, divided
- 10-15 drops peppermint essential oils
- red food coloring or color gel
- glass jar
How do you make peppermint body scrub?
1. Place 1/4 cup of coconut oil into a small microwave safe bowl and melt coconut oil. Microwave for 20 seconds and stir until completely melted. Set aside. Repeat the same procedure so you have two bowls of liquid coconut oil.
2. Place 3/4 cup white sugar into one bowl of coconut oil and mix well. You’ll want your sugar to be crumbly.
3. Place red food coloring or color gels into the other bowl of oil and mix. This won’t mix well since your food coloring is most likely water (vs oil) based. But that’s okay, it will come together in a minute.
4. Add 3/4 cup white sugar and mix well. This is when the color will begin to evenly distribute and blend with the sugar. Add drops of peppermint essential oil, 10-15 drops per color.
5. You can simply layer your sugar scrub horizontally but I wanted a different look. I angled my glass jar using a smaller glass bowl.
Add a small amount of red sugar scrub and pack down with the back of a spoon. Add white and pack down.
Continue with this layered look until you have the jar full.
How to use Peppermint Sugar Scrub:
To use, wet or dampen skin. Grab a handful of scrub and scrub onto your body, usually while in the shower.
Focus on rough areas like elbows, knees and the feet. Rinse.
You’ll notice the water will bead on your skin. This is from the moisture of the coconut oil.
When finished showering, pat dry to retain moisture from the oil.
Peppermint Sugar Scrub benefits:
Rough areas will be smooth and silky after using this sugar scrub. Dry skin will be a thing of the past with regular use of this scrub.
Are sugar scrubs good for your skin?
