What’s that you say? I haven’t posted on the blog since Halloween?! Well, I’m coming back with a BANG! Starting tonight and wrapping up on Sunday December 20th, I’ll be sharing Christmas themed posts everyday! A mini Blogmas, if you will. Let’s get started!
In case you didn’t know, I’m actually part hobbit. I like to garden. I love snacks. (Elevensies, amiright?) And I hate to wear shoes. I love my big hobbit feet and I prefer to be barefoot more often than not. As my sister would say, “Shoes are tiny prisons.” So in the winter, when I am forced to wear socks and boots, I like to use products that are refreshing for soles. I started making my own sugar scrubs about a year ago, mainly because I was spending a ton of money on the store bought stuff. (I could have been spending that money on baked goods! #priorities)
To make my Peppermint Sugar Body Scrub, you’ll need:
2 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup olive oil
5 drops peppermint essential oil (or essential oil of your choosing. Or none at all! If you prefer a milder scent, try substituting a little lemon juice!)
Directions: Mix it up. That’s it. You’re done.
The consistency should be less oily and more…scrubby. The measurements above yield about three 8-ounce canning jars of scrub. These jars make excellent gifts and stocking stuffers. (Make extra, you’ll want to keep some for yourself.) Considering you can find all the ingredients you need at the grocery store, I think the end product is rather luxurious! Enjoy!
