Last year a sweet friend of mine gave me a small jar of peppermint sugar scrub last Christmas. I put it in my shower thinking I’d use it — someday.
Some day in the future.
Some day when I was stressed or needed a little TLC.Someday when I’d want to be kind to myself.
But, honestly, I wasn’t sure when I’d open that little jar. But one day I did. And the sweet smell of peppermint and the gentle scrubbing of the sugar on the bottom of my foot was so refreshing. It didn’t take long until I was addicted to using my jar of peppermint sugar scrub in the shower at the end of a long day.
I ran out of the jar my friend gave me so I had to learn how to make my own. Here’s how:
All you need are three ingredients to make the peppermint sugar scrub (peppermint essential oil, sugar, coconut oil). Yep, that’s it. You’ll need a jar and some twine to make cute little gifts. These especially make great Christmas gifts!
Sugar Scrub Ingredients:
This next part is super hard, friends. Mix the three ingredients together! It’s that simple to make peppermint sugar scrub.
If you want a different scent, just swap the peppermint essential oil for the scent of your choice.
Fill the jars with your new peppermint sugar scrub and tie a piece of twine around the opening of the jar. Top with the jar with lids and add a gift tag. This would look so cute with a little chalkboard label or sign.
Be sure to keep one for yourself. You’re going to thank me one day when you’ve had it and are about to throw in the towel – just use a little of this peppermint sugar scrub and you’ll find yourself relaxed right away!
