- ½ cup coconut oil (room temp)
- 1 cup Sugar, granulated
- 5 drops Peppermint essential oil
- 1 drop Red food coloring
- In a bowl, combine the coconut oil and sugar. Mix until well combined. You’re looking for a texture of wet sand.
- Add the peppermint oil and mix well. If the mixture is not scented strong enough for you, add in small increments until you reach the strength you desire.
- In a small container, place about 1/3 of the sugar scrub and combine with the food coloring. Mix well.
- In a jar, start by layering the uncolored sugar scrub on the bottom of the jar, add the colored sugar scrub, and then top with the last bit of scrub.
- Keep at room temperature in a covered container.
- You can also mix this up in your stand mixer, or using a hand mixer. I like this method also, as the sugar scrub gets really well combined that way.

Every year, I made lots of different homemade bath and beauty gifts for my family and friends. I love coming up with new texture and scent combinations. This peppermint sugar scrub is a classic. It’s a must-have for the holidays! And, it couldn’t be easier…
I love the way the red and white look together. If you don’t care for peppermint, you could swap out another scent, such as lavender or lemongrass. Of course, changing the pigmentation is as easy as changing the food coloring also.
