Create your own peppermint coffee sugar scrub to help exfoliate and moisturize dry hands.
Hey crafty friends! While you’re reading this I’ll more than likely be in Sonoma for the Michaels Makers Summit. I’m thrilled to be part of the #MichaelsMakers team again this year and look forward to sharing new projects with you every month. You can follow along on our adventures in the wine country by following me on Instagram. I’m excited to be surrounded with creative people and meeting the Michaels team, you can pretty much expect a bit of picture overload in the new few days. :) So as I prepared for this trip I made a list of my packing essentials and what I needed to get done beforehand. Visit my hairdresser for a much needed hair appointment? Check. Balayage and ombre hair may be in, but these roots needed some major tlc. Next on the list was convincing myself I didn’t have anything to wear and a shopping trip was in order. Check! Last but not least was making sure I had a mani and used a sugar scrub to help soothe my dry hands. I love attending blogging events; it gives me the chance to meet likeminded creative bloggers from all across the country. But with blogging events comes a lot of handshaking. Therefore I always try to use a good sugar scrub in the days leading up to an event. My current favorite is this coffee and peppermint sugar scrub.This sugar scrub is similar to my coffee sugar scrub from last year, except I switched up the essential oils. I think the peppermint paired with the coffee smells incredible. Both are very strong and infuse the scrub with a refreshing scent. The almond oil is filled with nutrients that help restore moisture once the dry skin has been exfoliated. If you happen to have vitamin e oil around you can add a few drops of that in as well. I’ve included Amazon affiliate links below to exact products I used.
Peppermint Coffee Sugar Scrub
- 1 cup coffee grounds
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/4-1/2 cup Almond oil
- 10 drops peppermint essential oil
- 1 teaspoon vitamin e oil optional
- Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl. I suggest adding ¼ cup almond oil and increasing the amount until you find the consistency you prefer
- Store in airtight container.
