Author Crystal


  • 1 1/2-2 cups sugar
  • 1/2-1 cup coconut oil
  • 4-6 drops peppermint essential oil
  • 1 tsp vitamin e oil
  • 1-3 drops red food coloring or soap colorant


  • Melt coconut oil in microwave for 30 seconds or until it becomes liquid.
  • Mix in essential oil and vitamin e.
  • Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl.
  • Divide scrub in half and use food coloring in one batch.
  • Fill mason jar by alternating red and white scrub.
  • Store in airtight container.


When making sugar scrub I recommend starting with 1 1/2 cups of sugar and adding 1/2 cup until you reach the consistency you enjoy the best. I prefer a coarser scrub with not as much oil so 2 1/2 cups of sugar is perfect for me.
Add drops of the peppermint essential oil until desired scent is achieved. I use about 5 drops but you can use a few more if you prefer a stronger scent.
