Guess what? I have another version of some sugar scrubs for you today. I LOVE these! And they make the perfect homemade gift. Last week I shared with you a Thanksgiving version…Pumpkin Spice Sugar Scrub Recipe. This time I wanted something that was Christmas in a Jar! So what could be better than a Peppermint Candy Cane Sugar Scrub.
Sugar Scrubs are a great way to add some moisture and soften up winter-dry skin. And who doesn’t need that this time of year. It is also a great way to relax during this crazy busy season.
I simply took two cups of white granulated Sugar and mixed in a 1/4 cup to 1/3 cup Almond Oil (Coconut Oil will work too). Add the oil slowly till you have a nice soft consistency that is soft but not too oily. Then add a few drops of Peppermint Essential Oil.
Once you have it all mixed together you will want to divide the scrub into two equal parts and in separate containers. You will need to add some color to one of the containers. You can use a little bit of food coloring OR you can add some raspberry juice like I did. I simply took a couple of drops of juice from a bag of frozen raspberries…the perfect organic red colorant.
Make a large funnel out of a piece of paper (a small one will not allow enough room for the sugar scrub to pass through it) and add a small amount into the jar. Press the sugar down lightly so that the sugar is even.
Then add a white layer so that they are about the same height and flatten it. Continue back and forth with as many layers and as thick or thin a layer you would like. So pretty right?
Print out a pretty label and add some fun scrapbook paper or bow and you have the perfect hostess or Holiday gift!
