Peppermint Sugar Scrub {homemade gift idea}

Peppermint Sugar Scrubs are easy to make, package adorably and are good for your skin!  Plus, they are the perfect holiday homemade gift!  Sugar Scrubs are one of the best gifts ever!  They are my new latest craze {as you know} and after the recent success of my Lemon Sugar Scrub for Mother’s Day gifts, my Coffee Sugar Scrub for Teacher Appreciation, and my cherry and peach sugar scrubs just because, I decided to go all out and try a Peppermint Scrub to go with my fruity sugar scrubs!  So, here’s an easy-peasy, Peppermint sugar scrub recipe (with a FREE printable tag) that’s perfect for gift giving this holiday season!

Peppermint Sugar scrub


I’ve been making a lot of sugar scrubs in little batches, and this recipe filled up 3 of the craft organization storage jars by Recollections I purchased at Michael’s (6 in a package for $7.19).  I’ve had so much fun finding interesting containers to put sugar scrubs in!  The recipe is super simple.  I love that sugar scrubs can be used on the hands, feet and body.  I especially like this one for the feet.  I like to use sugar scrubs in the shower because they are such great exfoliators and the hot water dissolves the sugar crystals before they can be too abrasive.

Peppermint Sugar Scrub Ingredients

Mix Together {this recipe fills 3 of the craft containers I have pictured}

  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 droppers full of peppermint oil {I purchased mine for $4.99 from Michael’s.  You can find it in the soap making section}
  • approximately 20 drops of red soap colorant (I purchased a pack of 4 colors at Michaels for $4.00)


Decorate Jar

Peppermint Sugar Scrub

I used embellishments I had at home to decorate the jar.  Ribbons I had in my craft supply closet were used to tie on the “Peppermint Sugar Scrub” tag.  The tag was designed by Tricia Rennea exclusively for Seven Clown Circus, and can be downloaded for free!   The sugar scrub was super easy to make and the whole project took me a total of 20 minutes including tying on the printable!  It’s THAT easy.

  1. Hi there to all, since I am actually keen of reading this website’s post to be updated regularly. It carries nice material.

  2. Hi can u use coccunt oil n food coloring at least 3 to 5 drop

    • ABSOLUTELY use coconut oil. It’s actually less oily! As far as regular food coloring, I wouldn’t use it because it could dye your skin…..
