How to Use a Sugar Scrub
I’m not sure about you, but I use to scroll through sugar scrub recipes on Pinterest only to realize that I actually didn’t know how to use a sugar scrub. So how exactly do you use a sugar scrub? It’s actually quite simple. The first thing you do once you make a sugar scrub is to stir it. The oils can move to the top, so you want to stir it well until the oil is fully coated with sugar. Stir the sugar scrub thoroughly before you use it every time.
Make sure to use the scrub on wet skin. I recommend doing this after you’ve finished your normal shower.
Homemade Peppermint Sugar Scrub Recipe
Serving Size: 2 cups
1-2 cups sugar
1/2-1 cup coconut oil, grapeseed oil, or olive oil (You pick!)
4-6 drops peppermint essential oil
½ tsp. Vitamin E oil
Melt the coconut oil for 30 seconds unless you’re using another type of oil that’s already in liquid form. Mix in 4-6 drops of peppermint essential oil. Feel free to add more or less if you’d like. Add the oil into the sugar while stirring until you’ve reached the consistency you’d like it to be. Fill the contents in any type of airtight container.
A peppermint sugar scrub is also a perfect and affordable gift for anyone during the holiday season. Fill a mason jar with the peppermint sugar scrub, tie a holiday ribbon on it and you’re done!
