Whether you need a spa night in all to yourself to get away from the holiday madness or are looking for beautiful last-minute gifts to whip up for friends and family, this peppermint body scrub is IDEAL! It smells like a crisp holiday morning – coffee brewing and peppermint in the air – and works wonders.
The caffeine helps stimulate circulation, fights cellulite, draws out excess moisture, firms, smooths, and tightens skin while the sugar helps scrub away dead skin cells and the coconut oil/olive oil combo will leave your skin wildly nourished. Not to mention, the peppermint gives an energizing boost, which let’s be honest, we could all use during this busy time of year. Here’s how to make it:
DIY Peppermint Body Scrub
1 cup sugar
½ cup finely ground coffee
10- 15 drops peppermint essential oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ cup melted coconut oil
¼ cup olive oil
1. Combine all ingredients into a bowl and mix well.
2. Spoon into jars and enjoy!
Love this, thanks! x

Hi! Can I use extra virgin olive oil?
Hi, how long will this last? I don’t want it to go mouldy…!
