12 DIYS of Christmas { Peppermint Striped Body Scrub}



Hello Friends,

Hope you all are having a great Monday! I am starting a new series!!! Today marks exactly 12 days till Christmas. So everyday including Christmas I will be uploading a DIY post. Be on the lookout for edible gifts, hairstyles, bath and body, and gift wrapping. I hope you all enjoy it!!

I am going to start it off with a wonderful Peppermint body/face scrub!

For this scrub I used very common ingredients. (I know what it’s like to not be able to get everything recipes call for :).)  Here’s the recipe:

  • 3/4 cup of sugar
  • 1/3 cup of coconut oil
  • 4 drops of peppermint essential oil  (I used Doterra oil)
  • 5 drops of red food  coloring             IMG_20151208_161159432_HDR     I began by combining the sugar and coconut oil.   IMG_20151208_161347333_HDR    Next I separated the mixture in half and colored  one half with red food coloring.  IMG_20151208_161858017_HDR                 I then added 2 drops of peppermint oil to each bowl and began to layer the red and white in the mason jar. IMG_20151208_162042254   IMG_20151208_162134133_HDR   IMG_20151208_162225136

After I finished layering the colors all the way to the top, I let it set for a couple of minutes to let the coconut oil set. I picked out a stash of Christmas paper, ribbon, stickers, and I made a tag out of cardstock.

I think it turned out great!!      IMG_20151208_171232102 IMG_20151208_171312907 IMG_20151208_171245049I hope you try it !                                                                                 Merry Christmas,
