DIY St. Patrick’s Day Mint Sugar Scrub

I love sugar scrubs. I use one daily as a soap alternative with coconut oil to replenish skin moisture in the dry Eastern Washington winter. This sugar scrub is nicely themed for St. Patrick’s day. It’s optional to add the food coloring and I don’t to avoid color substitutes and fake dyes. The minty flavor is enough to remind you of Shamrock shakes and green clovers.

DIY St. Patrick’s Day Sugar Scrub

What You’ll Need:

A mason jar with a tight lid

2 cups of granulated plain white table sugar

¾ of a cup of coconut oil

A few drops of peppermint oil

Optional and use sparingly: green food coloring

Mix the sugar and coconut oil together in a large bowl until combined.

Add a few drops of peppermint oil and green food coloring if you are using it.

Mix thoroughly and store in a mason jar with an airtight lid. Label with a sharpie what it is and the date you made it. It will be good for 6 months.

It really is that easy!

This minty sugar scrub lasts for a pretty long time and a little goes a long way! You can use it on every part of your body and it will remove dead skin cells and exfoliate dry or cracked skin. Peppermint is energizing and the smell helps with memory recall. It’s still gentle enough to use every day because the coconut oil moisturizes and revives.

Enjoy!
