Last Minute Gift: Peppermint Sugar Scrub

Looking for a fabulous last minute gift to make for a special teacher, hairdresser, or someone that is on their feet all day? Then consider making a special blend of Peppermint Sugar Scrub courtesy of Home Spun with Love.

Homemade sugar scrubs are simple, thoughtful and well received gifts! All the wonderful natural ingredients in homemade sugar scrubs make this a gift you can feel good about giving without the concern of additives, colors and fake ingredients that can irritate the skin or worse. The moment you smell the cool natural peppermint oil you are energized and happy as can be. True aroma therapy!

Peppermint Sugar Scrub Recipe

3 cups white granulated sugar
1 cup grape seed oil
Peppermint oil {added to your liking}

In a medium bowl, add sugar and oil. Mix to combine. Check for desired consistency adding more oil and/or sugar as needed. Add in your peppermint oil and mix well. Spoon into clean, dry jar(s). Since the oil will float to the top, this will need to stirred prior to using. This can be used all over the body, but is especially good for feet and hands. Should stay fresh for about two weeks.

To finish off the jar, Home Spun with Love found these really pretty labels designed by Cathe Holden for World Label.

If you are not familiar with the designs of Katherine Holden you can see more of her wonderful work on her blog, Just Something I Made.

Happy Crafting!
