Candy Cane Sugar Scrub

I love sugar and salt scrubs. I love the fancy super expensive ones and the cheapo ones I pick up at the grocery store. I honestly can’t tell the difference. They are great to use on your feet year round and all over during the winter when your skin is dry. I have been pinning DIY recipes for awhile now and finally decided to try some out today.

Today I made a sugar scrub. It’s super easy! All you need is

2 cups sugar

1/3 cup almond oil or coconut oil – I used almond

Scented Oil- I used peppermint

Mix together the sugar and oil until the sugar is a little crumbly. Add in as many drops of scented oil as you want. I used about 10. This recipe fills a pint sized mason jar perfectly. I had a little left over to test it out on my hands and it was amazing.

I wanted mine to be Christmas-y so I divided mine into two containers and added a bit of food coloring to one and then layered them into the mason jar. I added a cane cane (PINTEREST IDEA!) and some tulle and I added a cupcake wrapper (its Valentine but I think it works) to the top of the jar. These will make great Christmas gifts!

  1. SO CUTE! I’ve been wanting to make some too but have taken on too many projects already. LOL I think I’ll do this after Christmas and use it as a go-to gift throughout the year. These turned out super cute – love the addition of the candy cane!

    • You should totally steal the idea! LOL! I bought the oils on amazon for CHEAP! I bought a ton and add them to the pad on my steam mop to make the house smell good. They are less than $5.00 and qualify for prime or super saver shipping.
