|Peppermint Sugar Scrub DIY gift|
Nothing beats a homemade gift! The reason I love to create homemade presents for folks on my list is because I know I am giving something that was made with my hands and is truly from my heart. (not to mention, you are almost guaranteed that someone else can't steal your idea! )
One of my favorite gifts to create is Peppermint Sugar Scrub!
This scrub can be used on hands, arms, legs, feet or anywhere you want to remove dead skin and reveal smooth touchable soft skin. Just apply in small amount and work in a circular motion, rinse and dry with a towel. It can be used on the face as well, just avoid your eyes. You don't need much to see results!
It is so easy to make and it is fun to decorate the jars!
Oh! did I forget to mention it smells heavenly!
You will need the following items to create your batch.
In this post I tripled the batch to create 6- 4 oz jelly jars.

You can purchase your coconut oil HERE
You can purchase your peppermint oil HERE
You can switch the peppermint oil for essential oil.
I find either one works well.
|Ingredients for Peppermint Sugar Scrub|
You will want to get the kiddos in on this project! My daughter loves mixing the recipe by hand. Her hands are soft and she smells Yummy! :)
1 cup white sugar
1/4 cup of organic coconut oil
14-16 drops of peppermint oil
Hint* I purchased my coconut oil at Aldi for 3.99!
Mix until it feels like a wet sand.
|Your kitchen will smell AMAZING!|
It will look something like this.
Now for the jars! I purchased 12 mason jar labels from my local Dollar General for $1.00 a pack.
You could create your own with a printer or use scrapbook paper, brown paper and make different patterns.

I decided to add jute twine and ribbon to give mine a more homespun touch. I used a glue gun to secure it.
