Candy Cane Sugar Scrub
Serves: 4-5 4 ounce jars
  • 2 cups sugar - just plain white sugar. If you have organic white sugar even better!
  • 1 cup coconut oil - the solid stuff. We'll liquify it before mixing it in.
  • 100% pure peppermint essential oil. We use Young Living and Now is really good too!
  • 4 ounce Ball quilted jelly jars. You'll need 4-5 of them depending on how full you fill them.
  • Some pretty ribbon. We use black and white twine for around the jars found at Target!
  1. Melt the coconut oil in the microwave for 30-40 seconds until it's liquified then allow to cool for a few minutes. DON'T mix in warm or hot oil to the sugar!
  2. Once the oil is cool stir together the sugar, oil and 25-30 drops of peppermint essential oil. I'm pretty generous with the oil and like it really pepperminty so I use almost 30. Start with maybe 25 then mix in a little more if needed.
  3. Once it's all mixed together scoop into the jars. Keep in mind the mixture will harden again since you're using coconut oil. That's totally fine so don't be alarmed when you open the jars and see it harden. Once you touch or scoop a little out with your hands it softens right back up. You can use little spoons but your finger works just fine!
  4. Print the labels. We use Avery stick paper but you could use cardstock and double sided table. All the instructions are on the printables too! Print the labels then cut them out and attach them to the jars.
  5. Add some ribbon and you're done!
