Peppermint essential oil is cleansing, healing & stimulating for your skin! Combined with a moisturizing carrier oil like grape seed or olive oil & sugar it can feel like a huge cup of espresso; perfect for those mornings!

Make some extra & wrap it up pretty in a bottle with some ribbon or a bow for a quick but luxury hand made Christmas gift.

This Beauty Ritual is simple to create but offers a divine spa experience.

 

1/4 cup grape seed oil [can substitute with olive or hazelnut carrier oils]

2 tbsp peppermint essential oil [can substitute with spearmint oil]

1/2 cup sugar

 

Combine sugar & oils into a glass jar & mix completely. Store with air tight lid away from light & moisture for maximum shelf life.

 

Peppermint & Spearmint can also be quite refreshing during the hotter months so feel free to use it all year round!

When is your favorite time of year to use peppermint scrubs? What else do you use peppermint essential oil for?

    1. I purchased my essential oil from Ebay. The kind sold in the grocery store (I like Whole Foods) will work just make sure it says “100% essential oil” on the bottle.
