Valentine's Day Gift: Homemade Peppermint Sugar Scrub


Exfoliate the skin with this super easy and super cheap DIY gift.




You Need
Granulated white sugar
Extra virgin olive oil
Peppermint essential oil
Jar

Step 1. Wash and dry jar.
Step 2. Mix together 3 cups white granulated sugar with 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil. Almond oil also works.
Step 3. Add approximately 10 drops of peppermint oil. 
Step 4. Divide scrub into two bowls. Add food coloring to create desired colors.
Step 5. Funnel the scrub into the jar, laying your color choices.

This are just general guidelines. The scrub should feel soft but not too oily.

I mainly used salsa jars and covered the lids with red Duck Tape. I printed the labels on the computer and added peppermint stickers for decoration. The only thing I purchased specifically for this project was the peppermint essential oil. I found it locally on sale at the Vitamin Shoppe.
