I love the smell of peppermint, it reminds me of Christmas and everything clean and fresh! I also love soaking in the tub and using body scrub so, after seeing so many recipes on Pinterest to make my own scrub, I decided that I was going to make some as gifts this Christmas. It was so simple and easy and this is my recipe:
2 C White Sugar
1/2 C Coconut Oil
4 Drops Peppermint Essential Oil
1 Drop of Red Food Colouring
I was able to purchase the first two items at the local grocery store and the last two items at Michaels craft store.
Mix the coconut oil, sugar and peppermint oil together in a large bowl. I filled each glass jar half full with the white scrub mixture.
Add 1 drop of red food colouring to the remaining white scrub mixture to make it pink and then add this to the jars so you have one layer of white and one layer of pink sugar scrub.
You could use any colour of food colouring to create a coloured scrub.
