Today I’m sharing a super easy and quick Valentine’s Day sugar scrub. These are great for teacher favors, grandparents and in my case, mommy friends. I love the invigorating smell of the peppermint essential oil which is perfect to give you a jump start while taking your morning shower (even if you only get 5 minutes before the baby starts crying). I cannot wait to try this when the kids go down for nap today!
1 cup Organic Cane Sugar
1/2 cup Organic Coconut Oil
2-3 Tablespoons Almond Oil
1/3 cup Himalayan Sea Salt
1 Tablespoon or 3 Capsules Vitamin E Oil
1-2 Drops Pink Food Coloring
Combine all dry ingredients in medium size mixing bowl and stir together with a whisk. Add in all oils and stir until wet and dry are evenly combined. Add in 1-2 drops of the pink food coloring and fold together with spatula. Once food coloring is all mixed in, disperse evenly into small mason jars. I ended up needing a bit more cane sugar which I added at the end after I decided my scrub wasn’t coarse enough.
Each batch filled 5, 4 ounce mason jars, but you could make larger servings if only making a few. In my case I needed to make 20 so I just repeated the recipe four times. There you have it! So simple and it only took me 30 minutes from start to finish. I was able to make it while the kids were eating breakfast and watching Mickey Mouse Club House (thank you, Disney!)

I love sugar scrubs! I will have to try this.
This scrub is very pretty with the light pink and it seems easy enough to make.
That seems super easy to do! I love sugar scrubs so much, it would be nice to not pay an arm and a leg for one!

Erika Ortega says
I’ve never had a sugar scrub. Am I missing out on something big here because it sure does feel like it. Recipe looks easy enough but I’ve never done essential oils either. I know I’ll have to give it a try eventually soon
Ooh, I bet this would be so soothing!
Sane Mama says
Wow, I love this idea. Pinned for later.
Oh my goodness, thank you for this! I love swapping store-bought products for things that I can make at home on my own, and I’m looking for good face scrub. I’m trying this one. Pinning!
Jasmine Hewitt says

You may have convinced me I can make my own scrub! Love the peppermint addition, as I buy all the peppermint soap I can find at Christmas and try to make it last all year.
This sounds lovely! Peppermint EO is one of my favorites.
