To me, the holidays are not about how expensive the gifts are, or how fancy. To me, the best gifts are the ones from the heart. The ones where their time & love went into each & every one. But if you are like me and on a budget this holiday season, which let’s be real, that seems to be everyone these days, then the holidays may be a little stressful. Scrambling to find gifts for loved ones that fit into your holiday budget, it can just add to the hustle and bustle.
But no worries I found the PERFECT gift!
DIY all natural Peppermint Sugar Scrubs
I was inspired by Mom 4 Reals post, which you can find here . She even includes a free printable if you need it!
This has been my perfect go to gift. Every lady loves to smell good, and throw in all natural ingredients, BOOM! You’re good to go! I’ve listed below the ingredients, and some pictures to show how I packaged these up. I hope all the special ladies in your life love their homemade scrubs as much I do. It’s one of my favorites all year long !
All Natural Peppermint Sugar Scrub
- 2 cups sugar
- 1/4 cup coconut oil- you may use carrier oil or oil of your choice
- Peppermint Essential Oil
- Red food coloring
- Mason Jars, size of your choice, w/ lids
To make one 16 ounce jar of sugar scrub, pour one cup of sugar into one bowl and one cup of sugar into the other. Then place 1/3 cup of coconut into each bowl.
Add 3/4 teaspoon of peppermint oil into each bowl. Mix well again.
Into one of your bowls, add one drop of red food coloring. Mix well.
Now, begin layering your pink sugar scrub into your jar, pressing it down into an even layer with something flat.
Add your white layer next and repeat.
Repeat until your jar is full.
Decorate your jaw how ever you'd like! I used red twine & hand written labels, but you can add some rosemary, or some printed out labels to add your own personal touch.
And that’s it! Done in minutes….and ready to either use, or give away!
