Peppermint Sugar Scrub

Along with my Mason Jar Hot Chocolate mugs I wanted to do something for my mother-in-law and that a real word?  If not, I just made it up :) 

I already made this crockpot candy for my new friend Carol and it made so much that I saved some for gifts for the in-laws.

I wanted to do something else that was sweet...but with a twist.  

Peppermint Sugar Body Scrub
This was SO quick and easy to make and smells wonderful!

2 cups granulated white sugar
1/3 cup LIGHT olive oil 
1/8 cup melted coconut oil
1/4 tsp peppermint extract

and just for fun I added in a few drops of essential peppermint oil that I had.

I divided up the sugar into two bowls and added a few drops of red food coloring into one until I got the color just right.

My hands felt so soft after making this I may have to make some for myself!

Take time during the hustle and bustle of the holiday season to relax and enjoy!
