Peppermint Sugar Scrub – Body Scrub Recipe

I’m sharing 5 Gifts from the Kitchen ideas this week on my AMNW segment. All ideas are super simple, but fabulous, like this Sugar Scrub Recipe!

Body Scrub Recipe – Peppermint!

I make my own Sugar Scrub monthly using this Body Scrub Recipe to keep my skin protected from winter dryness, especially with all the time I spend in the pool. This time of year, I like adding peppermint oil for a festive scent, but any scent can be used. I’ve found the best oil is Almond Oil, but you can also try a mixture of Jojoba, or vitamin E. Trader Joe’s carries a nice Vit. E.

I’ve got a free printable label that my friend Cindy from Skip to My Lou made. Download below.

    Hi Kim, I am so thrilled to finally have found something I can make for my co-workers. I am wondering if your recipe makes just enough for one jar?

    I live in the Yukon in northern Canada and we’ve had some unseasonably cold weather the last couple of weeks (-30 degrees Celsius) so this will be a godsend to my dry skin – thank you so much.

    That you SO much for the lovely printables and the scrub recipe. I can’t wait to try it. I had already purchased the cute little jars to put it in, but now I’ve got the labels for them. Thanks again!
