I previously shared my Oven Mitt Gift Set and my Peppermint Hot Chocolate In A Jar and now I want to share with you my Peppermint Candy Cany Sugar Scrub, all gifts for under $5!  

Do you love all those expensive sugar scrubs but hate the cost?  Here is a recipe for a sugar scrub that is just as good  as those expensive ones for A LOT less!   It’s made with pure cane sugar,  a little food coloring for the red sugar, coconut oil and some peppermint oil.  It smells great and feels great.  It also makes a great stocking stuffer!


1 Cup sugar

1 Teaspoon Coconut Oil

Red Food Coloring OR  a little bit of raspberry juice for color.  (juice from a melted frozen  bag of raspberry works)

2 Drops of Peppermint Oil


I used 1 teaspoon of coconut oil to 1 cup of sugar.  It took about 10 drops of red food coloring to get the sugar to turn red.  If you want it pink instead just use a few drops.
