How To Make Peppermint Sugar Scrub
Recently, I planned a bridal shower for a friend that’s getting married. I wanted to give everyone who came a special favor to take home with them. After researching many different items that I could purchase, I decided, that a DIY project would be cost effective and would add another layer of personal touch to the party. I made 24 jars of these sugar scrubs and they were a huge hit among all the guests!
Get ready to have soft skin that smells AH-MAZING!
How To Make The Sugar Scrub
First, you are going to mix your oil (coconut or almond) with granulated sugar. You want to add just enough oil so that the sugar is fluffy and lightly coated in oil. It is possible to add too much oil so slowly add it.
Next, add 2 drops of peppermint essential oil. You never want to add too many drops of essential oils because it could burn the skin.
Now its time to add the color! You can easily transform this sugar scrub by adding some beautiful color to it. It only took 2 drops of red food coloring to turn the sugar into this bright red color.
Finally, take a jar and fill it one layer at a time. I started with a white layer, followed by a red one, and finishing with a final white layer.
To add the final touch, I printed out labels to match the theme of the party. The completed project was easier and more fun than I had anticipated. Now I can make these as gifts for friends and family.
I was so excited about the outcome of this project that I’ve decided I would love to create different versions of this same sugar scrub. Next, I want to try lavender with purple sugar and lemon with yellow sugar! There are so many great oils to play around with!
Sugar Scrub Recipe
Here is what I used to make these sugar scrubs:
For one jar:
1/2 cup granulated sugar (for the white layer)
1/4 cup granulated sugar (for the red layer)
2 tsp oil (almond or coconut oil) for the white layer
1 tsp oil (almond or coconut oil) for the red layer
4 drops of peppermint essential oil (for the white layer)
2 drops of peppermint essential oil (for the red layer)
For a larger batch:
2 cups granulated sugar
1/4 cup oil (almond or coconut)
3 drops red food coloring
8 drops of peppermint essential oil
*You can also use a red raspberry juice as a substitute for the red food coloring.
Make sure to store these in a well-sealed container. Like other scrubs use clean utensils or hands when scooping out the sugar. The scrub should last 2-3 month.
