Did you know sugar scrubs are super easy to make and they make terrific gifts? This Peppermint Sugar Scrub Recipe also make your skin super soft.
What is a Sugar Scrub?
A sugar scrub gently exfoliates your skin and leaves it soft, smooth, silky, and smelling amazing. You can leave them by your bathroom sink or even put it in your shower to exfoliate your whole body. This Peppermint Sugar Scrub Recipe smells like Christmas. It truly smells good enough to eat. To make this sugar scrub super soft, I used Coconut Oil, Olive Oil, and Vitamin E. I have been taking Vitamin E for my hair and nails. I have also broken open the capsules and rubbed the oil around my cuticles to help with extreme dryness. I think that is the secret to how soft this Sugar Scrub makes your hands feel. I broke open a few capsules for a teaspoon full and added it to the sugar scrub. I was so excited how this first scrub turned out I made an Orange Scrub, a Coconut Scrub, and a Lavender Scrub. If you need an inexpensive gift that smells amazing and leave your skin soft, try making this Peppermint Sugar Scrub Recipe.

- 1 cup White Sugar
- 1/2 cup Coconut Oil (Do not heat oil up. It will soften)
- 2 tablespoons Olive Oil
- 1/4 teaspoon Peppermint Essential Oil
- 1 teaspoon Vitamin E (I break the capsule open)
Mix all the ingredients well. I use a mason jar.
