Peppermint oil is known for relieving headaches and muscle aches. We all know that those are part of the holiday season right?
It’s also known to give you that icy hot feeling, which will provide you with a nice wake up on a chilly morning. Or it can relieve your sore muscles from all that Christmas shopping you’ve been doing.
We love this Plant Therapy oil.

Why Choose a Sugar Scrub for Your Skin?
Coconut oil is a great moisturizer for all skin types. sugar is a very gentle exfoliator so sugar scrubs are great to use in the winter on that dry skin. Sugar scrubs shouldn’t irritate skin that’s seasonally drier than normal.
And if you live in the sunshine and don’t need a heater, well this peppermint scent is going to put you in a festive mood!
This is also a fun scrub that lends itself to the festive season at Christmas and the holiday season because of its bright peppermint scent!
Peppermint Sugar Scrub Recipe
This recipe makes enough to fill a small jelly jar. We love to reuse jars and the clear glass ones are so pretty to see the natural sugar scrubs.
This time we added a bit of food coloring (just a couple of drops) and layered the mix into the jar to make it a bit more festive.
It’s a fast and easy gift to make with natural ingredients.
Just mix up:
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 5 drops of peppermint essential oil (or more)
- Optional – add food coloring for fun
Mix your ingredients up in a bowl and then layer them into your airtight container.
If the sugar scrub is kept in an airtight container it should last several months, but we’re pretty sure you’ll use it all up before then!
Your sugar scrub may turn oily in the shower from the heat but that’s okay. Just be sure that it doesn’t make the surface of your floor too slick when you’re using it.
If you store it in a colder area the coconut oil becomes more solid and you might need a spoon to get it out of your jar.
Of course if your sugar scrub has a funny odor to it you should throw it away and mix up a new batch!
- 1/4 Cup Coconut Oil
- 3/4 Cup White Sugar
- 5 Drop Peppermint Essential Oil
- Optional: Food Coloring
- Bowl for Mixing
- Wooden Spoon
- Measuring Cups
- Add Coconut Oil to Bowl
- Add Sugar
- Stir until Well Mixed
- Add Essential Oil
- Add food coloring if wanted
- Spoon into air tight container
This recipe makes enough for one small jelly jar (mason jar). It can easily be doubled or tripled to make more!
