Peppermint Sugar Scrub


My husband and I had a bit of a DIY Christmas this year inspired by this super cute gift idea. I found the idea for Peppermint Sugar Scrub at my new favorite crafty blog – The Idea Room. It’s super simple: it just takes sugar, coconut oil and peppermint essential oil. And, the results are amazing! I just love how soft and refreshingly cool the scrub makes my skin feel.

Our cats loved playing with the jingle bells!

Per The Idea Room’s suggestion, I used some raspberry freezer jam to color the pink peppermint layers. I loved how the seeds in it added a fun “candy” effect.

The graphic designer in my husband, and scrapbooker in me, came out in our handmade labels and festive jingle bell ribbon ties. These were a big hit at Christmas time with all the ladies in the family!
