Here’s my Vanilla Mint Sugar Scrub Recipe:

1 cup grandulated sugar

1/2 cup coconut oil (you can use grapeseed or almond oil also)

10 drops Vanilla and Peppermint Essential Oils (or use any essential oil scent you choose)

Put all ingredients in a bowl. Blend together until you have a slightly grainy consistency.  Add a little food coloring if you desire color.  Bottle and it’s ready to use or give as a gift.

Vanilla Mint Sugar Scrub Recipe

The sugar scrub base can be tailored to any scent.  I chose Vanilla Mint because I love the scent and mint has many healing and relaxation properties.  I use the scrub when I’m in the shower.  It’s a gentle exfoliant that leaving my skin buffed and fully moisturized.  It’s wonderful and I hope you like it as much as I do.

I’ve been going through a lot lately caring for others but there comes time when you must replenish.  If you haven’t taken time for yourself in awhile take my lead, make this scrub and give yourself some self-care this Valentine’s Day weekend or sometime soon.

It’s health to pamper yourself anyway you can and this scrub cost less than $10 to make.
