I posted a bath salt scrub recently, but sugar scrubs are also pretty fabulous (and so popular right now.) This is super simple to pull together, not very expensive (you can get the small jars at a craft store or at Target or Walmart) and would make a great gift. And while you’re working on gifts, go ahead and make some of this Peppermint Sugar Scrub for yourself. You’ll thank me later.
Sugar scrubs can be gentler on your skin, which is important for me in winter because ohmyword the cold weather is wreaking havoc on my skin and drying me out! If you have coconut oil, sugar and peppermint essential oil, you have all of the ingredients you need to make this sugar scrub. And the gift recipient possibilities are endless! (Think teachers, daycare providers, colleagues, your boss, family members, close neighbors, host/hostesses of holiday parties!)
My husband taught for years before moving into his current role. He used to receive a lot of gifts during the holidays, and some of them were so thoughtful. I’m trying to pay it forward to our son’s teachers (as well as our daughter’s daycare teachers.) Pair this with a gift card and I think I might win them over!
Peppermint Sugar Scrub – Makes 4 small jars
1 cup coconut oil
2 cups sugar
15-20 drops of peppermint essential oil
In a medium bowl, combine all of the ingredients. Store in an air tight container and dress with some twine or a bow for an easy DIY gift.
I love these half pint jars for gift giving. I’m also a fan of decorating the lids with washi tape. You can make a quick gift tag and be set!
See how simple this “recipe” is? Now, go forth and make some sugar scrub and feel a little indulgent.
Do you like making holiday gifts? Do you do teacher gifts?
