Peppermint Sugar Scrub

While peppermint sugar scrub is a lovely choice any time of year, it is especially appropriate for gift giving during the holiday season.  Peppermint and candy canes have long been associated with Christmas after all.

Here is how I got the look and the reasoning behind the ingredient choices I made for this body scrub.

Sugar & Color

I wanted to make this peppermint sugar scrub simple to make, yet pretty when you open the jar. Rather than going with a striped candy cane effect, I decided to simply use red sugar sprinkles mixed in with the regular cane sugar in this body scrub. The overall scrub does get pale pink tint to it, but the red sugar crystals hold on to most of their color and fleck the peppermint scrub nicely.

Oils & Scent

As it can get pretty chilly around here in New England (yes, even inside our homes), I chose to use a combination of refined coconut oil and fractionated coconut oil (liquid) as the fat in this peppermint sugar scrub recipe. I think it gives it a little more of a glistening slightly translucent look too, which I liked. Of course, peppermint essential oil was used to scent this scrub.

Peppermint Sugar Scrub Labels

To give the project a completed look, I designed these peppermint sugar scrub labels.

Peppermint Sugar Scrub Labels

When printed on a regular sized sheet of cardstock paper you will get labels just the right size for standard mason jar lids. The thicker weight of card stock ensures the labels are durable and adhere well without the glue causing issues. I used 110 lb bright card stock this time, but anything over 60 pounds should work fine for labels.

  1. Print and cut out the labels. Adhere them to to the jar lids with a thin coat of glue. Set aside to dry, while you mix up the scrub.
  2. In a med-large bowl, whisk the red sugar crystals into the regular sugar.
  3. Mix in the coconut oils and peppermint essential oil. If your refined coconut oil is hard, soften it a little before mixing it in.
  4. Once the mixture is smooth and ingredients are evenly distributed, scoop the sugar scrub into the jars, filling almost to the top. Place lid on each and screw on the ring.
