Sugar Scrub Tips
  • I personally LOVE extra virgin olive oil (love the vitamin E it already has!)
  • If you want more of an oily feel add 1/3 cup of oil instead.
  • If you have sensitive skin test it on an area of your arm before use.
  • Create a lemon version and wash your hands with it after doing dishes!

    Thank you, Kari, your scrubs have made gift giving so easy these last couple of years. We have friends asking for more. At church it is my turn to give a demonstration of something simple to make for a gift. I chose your Peppermint candy Scrub. I have also given everyone your name and website so they could see the many ideas you have!
    Again…thank you!!!

    I just tried it, using 1 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup coconut oil, and 9 drops of an essential oil mix my massage therapist makes containing lavender, eucalyptus, tea tree and peppermint oils (works wonders for my sinuses and asthma). My skin feels fantastic! Thank you!

    I did think of one thing while I was using it. I used coconut oil because my skin loves it. But a friend of mine with major food allergies would not be able to use any scrubs made with coconut or almond oil. So if you’re making it as a gift for someone, may I recommend you check the recipient won’t be allergic to the ingredients. Or include the ingredients on any label you make.

    Thanks again!
