Homemade Peppermint Sugar Scrub

Homemade Candy Cane Sugar Scrub

As Mother’s Day is fast approaching I wanted to try out some new homemade sugar scrubs and this Peppermint Sugar Scrub was first up. This post includes peppermint sugar scrub printables and the peppermint sugar scrub recipe.  The great thing is? It’s a kid craft for Mother’s Day! Your kiddos can totally help you make this scrub for Grandma or even you!

I headed to JoAnn’s to grab some mason jars for the scrubs but while I was checking out I saw these little plastic containers. While not the prettiest, I think they’re the most useful plus they were just $1. I keep my Homemade Coconut Honey Scrub in the bathroom and wash my face daily with it. The problem is my kids like to play with it and it;s in a mini mason jar….made of glass. Depending on your needs {and the number of toddlers in your house} you may wanna opt for a prettier mason jar. For me though I’m happy with this.

Sugar Scrub Directions

  1. Add all the ingredients into a bowl and use your hands to mix the coconut oil in.

Why Use a Peppermint Sugar Scrub?

About once a month skin cells are shed for new ones and while the body can do this use a sugar scrub can help remove the old cells which is why scrubs are so popular at beauty spas to remove dead skin cells, refresh and rejuvenate skin.

Alpha hydroxy acids, or AHAs, are the ingredient in exfoliating scrubs. Sugar is used because the glycolic acid found in sugar cane is a naturally occurring AHA.
