Make Peppermint and Vanilla Sugar Scrub

I love sugar and salt scrubs, especially in the winter when my skin gets really dry. I don’t even mind that they make the bottom of the shower slippery slippery because they are so moisturizing and make my skin so soft. They are pretty easy to make, and you probably already have some of the ingredients in your kitchen.

The one I’m making today is a bit more complicated than a basic sugar and oil scrub because its copy cat recipe from a peppermint and vanilla scrub my mom got me for Christmas. All I did was gather the ingredients listed on the back of the jar; then, I estimated how much of each ingredient the scrub included to make my own peppermint and vanilla sugar scrub recipe. I made a pretty big batch.

And here’s how I made my scrub!

(Don’t use any ingredients you’re allergic to, and always spot test new ingredients to make sure you don’t have a reaction to them. Do not use any homemade products without consulting with an appropriate medical professional first.)

Step #1: First I dumped the sugar, coconut oil, and shea butter into the mixing bowl. I popped it into the microwave for about 30 seconds. This melts the coconut oil and help to make the shea butter more malleable. I stir to mix until the shea butter is broken up.

Step #2: Next I added 8 drops argan oil, 10 drops peppermint oil, 3 drops rosemary, and about one tsp vanilla extract. I actually settled on these numbers after dropping some in, stirring, and monitoring the scent.
