Here’s a great Homemade Peppermint Sugar Scrub Recipe that you will love!

Homemade Peppermint Sugar Scrub

2 cup Sugar
1/4 cup Coconut Oil
Red Food Coloring
Peppermint Essentials Oil (found near Candle Making Supplies at Hobby Lobby or Online)








  • Pour sugar into medium sized bowl.
  • Mix in coconut oil (add more if you like a wet consistency).
  • Add a few drops of your Peppermint Essentials Oil.
  • Divide your sugar mixture into two equal sized portions.
  • Mix in a few drops of red food coloring to one portion (be careful not to add too much or you will have a bright red).
  • Add your sugars to the jar in layers. Press your Sugar down with a spoon or use a can to compact.
  • Alternate between your pink and white layers
  • Add a Label to the front and maybe a ribbon to gift.

Be sure to print these free labels to use when making your own!

Pick up a few small plastic jars from your local dollar store in various sizes and shapes to create truly unique gifts for each individual you plan on gifting this to.  For a further flare of Christmas cheer you could easily separate the sugars into 3 bowls and use green food coloring in one creating a red, white and green theme that carries over the holiday spirit.  Perfect for layering this homemade peppermint sugar scrub in a tree shaped jar or container for gifting!

    I love this Peppermint Scrub. It smells so good and is really quite good. This would make a great Christmas present to give.

    I strongly advise NOT using glass jars for scrubs! One slip & you have broken glass that is nearly impossible to see due to all the water in the tub or shower!

    Love, Love, Love! I am going to make this for gifts…..What kind of labels are these?

    Do you heat the oil first?
