Now that colder weather is upon us, the sound of a warm bubble bath while drinking a cup of tea sounds amazing. To top that off, you’ll want to pamper yourself with this homemade peppermint sugar scrub that I’m going to show you how to make today. This is also a wonderful homemade gift idea that will certainly come in handy this time of year!
It works wonders when you use the sugar scrub and follow it with this homemade coconut shaving cream for the smoothest shave ever! This combo leaves your legs feeling so soft. The peppermint essential oil leaves your legs feeling cool and a bit tingly after your bath. At the end of a long, cold day, this is the perfect way to pamper and relax before crawling into bed!
What You’ll Need for this Homemade Peppermint Sugar Scrub:
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 3/4 cup of sugar
- 5 drops of peppermint essential oil
- 1 tablespoon of red jojoba beads (I found these on Etsy)
- baby food jar or small mason jar to store it in
Good news is that it takes about 5 minutes to make this homemade peppermint sugar scrub and it’s super easy!
To start, grab a mixing bowl and add 1/4 cup of coconut oil with your 3/4 cup of sugar. You may need to put your coconut oil in the microwave for a few seconds to soften it up if its colder than 70 degrees in your house.
Next add a tablespoon of red jojoba beads. These are optional and not 100% necessary for a sugar scrub, but the pop of color they give just make this sugar scrub that much more fun!
Then add about 5 drops of peppermint essential oil to your mixture.
Stir all of that together until it is well mixed and the jojoba beads are evenly spread.
Store it in a baby food jar (like pictured above) or get a small jam mason jar. This amount would fill 2 baby food jars or one jam mason jar. I also spray painted the top of a baby food jar with gold spray paint so that I could use this as a gift.
Can you believe just how easy this homemade peppermint sugar scrub is to make? Plus I love how well it works as an all natural exfoliator. This scrub does a wonderful job of smoothing dry skin in the winter.
