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!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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!
