Peppermint Sugar Scrub in a Jar with FREE Printable Tag

Day 1- My first DIY Gift for you to consider is my favorite DIY Gift in a Jar Peppermint Sugar Scrub. If you have a Bath & Body lover on your shopping list, this one is perfect. I decided to whip up this Peppermint Scrub Recipe and toss it in an inexpensive Mason Jar, wrap it with a bow and I even made up this cute and simple Printable Label to offer you to print.

This DIY Gift in a Jar Peppermint Sugar Scrub is to die for. This scrub works for so many different things. I personally love scrubs and exfoliating. Peppermint extract, which is in this scrub, is good for your skin because it keeps feeling fresh, moisturized, and free of any type of pimples, or blemishes. Peppermint is said to be huge stress reliever (anything that relieves stress, I am willing to try, ha ha). So if you take a shower and scrub yourself with this, I promise you will begin to fell the stress pour out of you and you will find yourself feeling so relaxed.

Peppermint is also great for headaches. So once again, showering with this will help your headache extremely. With the combination of the soothing peppermint extract from the scrub and the heat from your shower, you can say bye bye to your headache. Another benefit of this scrub would be if you are sick and stuffed up sinus, showering with this and the combination of the heat should open up your sinuses and allow you to breathe. This Peppermint Sugar Scrub is a serious must have this winter season and will make for a perfect gift for another or maybe yourself, ha ha. Make a large batch, package it and give it to all your girlfriends this Holiday Season! They’ll thank you for it, trust me, ha ha!

I never realized how easy it is to make your own Sugar Scrubs. I picked up a jar of coconut oil at Remke last week for around $8.00 This one bottle has already made around 8 mason jars of scrubs. I still have about 1/4 bottle left to use. Not bad pricing at all. Grab your Mason Jars at Remke too if you are a Remke shopper, I think their pricing is quite competitive on Ball Mason Jars. Also, drop in Target (a wide selection) or also the Dollar Tree (just $1 each for an off brand).


2 cups Sugar
1/4 cup Coconut Oil
Red Food Coloring
Peppermint Essentials Oil (found near Candle Making Supplies at Hobby Lobby or Online). I think you could also use Peppermint extract too!

Pour sugar into medium sized bowl.
Mix in coconut oil (add more if you like a wet consistency).
Add a few drops of your Peppermint Essentials Oil.
Divide your sugar mixture into two equal sized portions.
Mix in a few drops of red food coloring to one portion (be careful not to add to much or you will have a bright red).
Add your sugars to the jar in layers. Press your Sugar down with a spoon or I use a can to compact.
Alternate between your pink and white layers
Ribbon and Printable Peppermint Sugar Scrub Label if you care to make this gift even more personal.

  1. Hey, I love your idea. I just wanted to know where
    I could find mason jars that are really inexpensive. I am ten and I feel like these sugar scrubs will make a perfect gift.

  2. I made this last night with the coconut oil (which was solid as a rock when i purchased it) and now the scrub is a solid mass as well. What can I add to the mixture to make it into a more liquid form?

    1. I had the same problem. But if you add a little bit of olive oil to the melted coconut oil, it won’t solidify again at room temp.

    1. How long does it last? I am making these scrubs for craft fairs and would like to know the expiration dates.

  3. I made something like this a few months ago, but realized that coconut oil can clog drain pipes if you use it often. I would recommend sweet almond oil, since it doesn’t solidify, but is still great for your skin!

  4. How long would this last? I’d love to make a few for gifts but want to know if there’s an “expiration date”. Thanks.
