Mint Sugar Scrub

Follow this easy recipe for an invigorating mint body scrub. The directions make three jars of scrub.

You will need:

Mint Sugar Scrub labels printed in color on card      stock


Three 4-ounce mason jars with lids and bands

Thin ribbon or twine

½ cup coconut oil

1 ½- 2 cups sugar

Peppermint essential oil or 1 teaspoon peppermint extract

Green food coloring

Glue stick

Hole punch

Scissors or pinking shears

Microwave-safe mixing bowl



  1. Microwave the coconut oil in the mixing bowl for 15 to 20 seconds. The oil should soften but not melt.
  2. Add about 10 drops of peppermint essential oil and 2-4 drops of green food coloring. Stir until blended.
  3. Gently stir in 1 ½ cups of sugar. Try not to break the sugar crystals too much. The texture should be grainy. If the mixture is too wet, add up to ½ cup more sugar.
  4. Spoon the scrub into the mason jars, put on the lids, and screw on the bands until tight.
  5. Cut the labels along the solid black borders and fold them in half along the dashed lines. Glue the front and back together using a glue stick. Cut out the round label and punch a hold where indicated.
  6. Thread ribbon through the hole and tie it to a jar. As an alternative, place a label between the lid and band and wrap the band with ribbon.
