Need a simple DIY gift idea for Christmas? Our Candy Cane Sugar Scrub is a fresh and invigorating body exfoliator that is so easy to whip up in your kitchen. It’s so lovely that you might want to make one just for yourself.
It’s perfect for sleepy mornings when you need a pick-me-up in the shower and when you need to soften up dry skin during this harsh winter. You end up with baby-soft skin and your senses perked up.
Combine two cups of white granulated sugar with one cup of almond oil (or jojoba or melted coconut oil). Add 10 drops of pure peppermint essential oil and mix it up with a spoon. Separate into two bowls. In one bowl, add 3-4 drops of red coloring and mix evenly until it becomes a light shade of pink. Layer in a mason jar — alternating the pink and white portions. To create neat stripes, use a small spoon to flatten one layer before adding the next.
