It’s getting warmer outside! That means that soon it will be swimsuit season. What to do about all that dry skin from the harsh winter? Well, make your own Vanilla mint Sugar scrub would work wonders on that skin.
The few ingredients you need can be found at a bulk food shop or even your local Walmart.
1 1/4 C raw sugar
1/3 C Honey
3/4 C carrier oil, such as Sweet Almond, Jojoba, Avocado, or a light Olive Oil
1 vanilla bean, split and scraped
14 drops Peppermint Essential Oil
Mix the sugar, honey, and carrier oil until well mixed. Add the scrapings from the vanilla bean and peppermint essential oil. Mix well. Place in glass jars, placing a piece of the vanilla bean shell on the top of each one. Use this scrub once or twice a week to help ease the dry skin and get you ready for swimsuit season.
This also makes a beautiful and thoughtful gift (Teacher’s Appreciation Day is coming soon and don’t forget Mother’s Day). Seal tightly and decorate with a bit of colorful fabric or ribbon. This scrub is sure to become a favorite with your family and friends. The best part is each 7.5 ounce jar cost only $3.83 to make, including $1 for the jar!
