DIY Chocolate Peppermint Body and Lip Scrub

DIY Chocolate Peppermint Body and Lip Scrub

Sugar scrubs are one of my favorite ways to exfoliate my skin and lips, but I hate the high price tag they carry in the store! I’ve been wanting to make my own for a while, and finally got around to it. I wasn’t disappointed! This is the most DELICIOUS smelling (and tasting!) DIY chocolate peppermint body and lip scrub that I’ve ever tried, and I’m so happy with the results. I can’t wait to give these out as Valentine’s Day gifts!


1 Cup White Sugar

1 Cup Brown Sugar

2/3 Cup Almond Oil 

5 Tablespoons of Cocoa Powder

20 Drops of Peppermint Essential Oil


I literally just dumped everything into a bowl and mixed it up. You may need to experiment with the cocoa powder/essential oil ratio–peppermint is very strong and can easily overpower the cocoa powder.

Once completely mixed, scoop it into your desired containers. This recipe makes 2 half-pint mason jars worth, which I think is a nice size for a gift.

I put some of the extra in a tiny little jar for myself–this scrub is perfect for lips, and literally tastes amazing! Use it to exfoliate your lips, and then wipe (or eat!) away the extra!

Final Touches:

Once you’re done, use some ribbon to hot glue around the edge of the mason jar–it adds a really nice touch!!

PS–if you think you might be interested in learning more about the essential oils I use, I just started selling them via Young Living. I’m offering $40 off a premium starter kit (regular price is $160), which contains 11 oils and diffuser. Send an email to for more info! I never thought I’d be so in love with these oils, but they’re truly amazing, and the uses for them seem to be endless!
