I love deliciously festive scrub recipes…and this one is great for December. Sweet peppermint blends well with warm vanilla…and everyone has extra sugar hanging out in the kitchen this time of year – might as well put it to good use. This scrub is perfect for tired feet after hours of holiday shopping – enjoy!
Sweet Peppermint Sugar Scrub Recipe
3 cups white sugar
½ cup turbinado sugar (raw sugar)
1 cup jojoba oil (or other plant or nut based oil)
1 tsp peppermint extract
1 tsp vanilla extract
Combine all ingredients in small bowl and stir until completely blended. Remove a handful for immediate use and store the rest in a glass jar or container with lid.
Apply scrub to damp skin and massage thoroughly.
Rinse well and follow up with body lotion or oil.
*Keep in mind that peppermint is not recommended for pregnancy, children or sensitive “parts.”
