DIY Peppermint Sugar Scrub

This Peppermint Sugar Scrub is amazing! Whether you want to make it for yourself or as a Christmas gift, it definitely embodies this holiday season. It smells delicious- like a York Peppermint Pattie! You will literally want to eat it! This scrub leaves your skin feeling super soft and moisturized.

(Makes four, 4 oz. Jars)


1 cup Coconut Oil (or a different oil of your choice), softened in microwave for 45 seconds
2 cups Sugar 
40-50 drops of Peppermint Essential Oil


Combine ingredients in a bowl. Distribute into your four jars. You can decorate your jar any way you would like! I tied a bow around the lid with twisted gold rope. I also created a tag and attached it to the rope. I wrote Peppermint Sugar Scrub on it in red sharpie with a little zigzag design.

This recipe can be customized to your liking. You can replace the coconut oil with another oil of your choice. You can also replace the peppermint essential oil with another essential oil of your choice. You can even combine essential oils! I do have to say though that the coconut oil and peppermint essential oil combination is fantastic! What do you think of this recipe? Will you give it a try? Let me know in the comments below!
