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 I began by combining the sugar and coconut oil. Next I separated the mixture in half and colored one half with red food coloring. I then added 2 drops of peppermint oil to each bowl and began to layer the red and white in the mason jar.
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 put the recipe on the back so in case the person you gift it to wants to make it, they have the recipe. I added a really cute label to the top of the jar and a ribbon. I think it turned out great!! I hope you try it ! Merry Christmas,
