DIY Gifts: Peppermint Sugar Body Scrub


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.
