How To Make Sugar Scrub



Step One

Mix some of the sugar and all of the oil in a bowl.



Step Two

To make the best homemade foot Scrub, use raw sugar as it has better exfoliating power. If you want a softer body scrub, use a fine white sugar. White is also best if you want to dye your scrub.

Add the peppermint essential oil while stirring the mixture. In our sugar scrub recipe, we found about 10 drops but this will vary, depending on the quality of oil you use and the type of oil. For a foot scrub, you may want to add more than you would for the body scrub.

If you are using the peppermint scrub as a body scrub add the food coloring at this point. We added green and red for a very festive feel but you could leave white or maybe candy cane red and white?

Step Three

Add the rest of your sugar until it is the consistency you want. A foot scrub should be a coarse texture to get maximum exfoliation.

Step Four

Put your sugar scrub into a container. We love to put ours in mason jars to give as gifts but if it’s for yourself even a Tupperware container will do.

To give as a gift be sure to use our cute sugar scrub free printable.
