I’ve become a huge fan of DIY beauty treatments! In fact, in a previous post, I wrote about the many ways I’ve incorporated coconut oil into my beauty routine, including a DIY body scrub.
I noted that I absolutely love how radiant my skin looks and feels after I exfoliate with a ½ cup of coconut oil and ¼ cup of coarse salt or granulated sugar.
After a bit of experimentation with essential oils from Whole Foods, I’ve now realized that I can share the gift of smooth, glowing skin with friends and family this season.
Read on to discover how you can, too, with my DIY peppermint sugar body scrub recipe!
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup of extra virgin coconut oil
- 10-15 drops of peppermint essential oil
- In a small mixing bowl, melt coconut oil and allow to cool for five minutes. Stir in sugar and drops of peppermint oil until all ingredients are combined.
- Tip: To give this body scrub as a gift, move this mixture into a small mason jar for storage and tie it with a bow for a decorative presentation!
