Sugar Scrubs are an easy way to incorporate oils into your personal beauty routine, and also make wonderful gifts to make for others. The base for this sugar scrub is sugar and coconut oil, and there are endless combinations of essential oils and dried herbs/flowers that you can add to your sugar scrub to make them more luxurious.
This weekend I made a Tangerine & Peppermint Sugar Scrub and added some dried mint leaves to make the scrub a little more special.
Tangerine & Peppermint Sugar Scrub
Before assembling your Tangerine & Peppermint Sugar Scrub prepare your dried mint leaves. Pre-heat your oven to 170 degrees. Wash & Dry your mint leaves and lay them in a single layer on a cookie sheet.
Place the cookie sheet in the oven for 1 hour until the leaves have dried. Once the leaves are cool, crumble the dried leaves to add to your Sugar Scrub later.
To Assemble the Sugar Scrub:
- Place 2 cups of granulated white cane sugar in a bowl, and mix in your crumbled dried mint leaves.
- Measure out 1/2 cup of solid coconut oil and stir in 10 drops of Tangerine Oil and 5 drops of Peppermint oil.
- Add the Tangerine & Peppermint coconut oil to the sugar and use a fork to combine.
- Store your body scrub in an air tight container until ready to use. Enjoy!
How amazing that for the entire month of May if you purchase a Young Living Premium Starter Kit you will receive a FREE 15ml bottle of Tangerine (if you are in Canada Tangerine is is the Bonus oil for a 100 PV Essential Rewards order)!
Here are a few more ideas of oils that would work with Peppermint in a sugar scrub:
- Orange (US bonus oil with a 100 PV Essential Rewards order in May)
- Jade Lemon (190 PV bonus oil for both the US & Canadian Markets for May)
I hope you find a combination that sounds perfect for some pampering!
