This 3 Ingredient Peppermint Sugar Scrub Recipe is an easy gift you can give to yourself or to others this holiday season. Plus, it smells amazing!
Small (albeit necessary) tasks get put on the back burner while at the same time bigger, more important things like romance often gets put on the back burner as well. This year for Christmas, I’ve resolved to give my husband my presence versus presents. My husband’s never been a gift person anyway so our time spent together during the holidays (and every day) will mean more to him than a pile of things that collect dust and clutter up our home.
But getting ready for romance also means I’ll need to get to those smaller tasks, too. Little things like that might seem insignificant but the extra effort to say that you care and you’re thinking of the other person too.
Those things like shaving your legs and exfoliating are just the little things you can do to say you care. You want to look and feel your best at any time of year but especially during the winter when the dry air zaps the moisture from your skin. When I want to ensure I feel confident and look my best during the holidays, I like to make up some peppermint sugar scrub.
Don’t keep these peppermint sugar scrubs all to yourself. These are an inexpensive and thoughtful gift to give all of your girlfriends this Christmas!
3 Ingredient Peppermint Sugar Scrub
- 2 cups white sugar
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 10 drops peppermint essential oil
- 6-10 drops red food coloring (optional)
Mix together sugar and coconut oil until soft and well combined.
Add peppermint oil and stir.
Split sugar mix into two batches and add red food coloring to half of it.
In a small wide-mouth jar (about 8 oz.), alternate equal layers of the red and white sugar scrub.
- Finish your jar off with a little twine either just knotted around the lid or with a fun bow!
