DIY Sugar Scrub

Hey everyone! In winter, skin gets very dry. That's why today's DIY is so perfect; it will help you achieve soft skin! Today's DIY is DIY Sugar Scrub, and because it is the holiday's, this sugar scrub looks like a candy cane, and smells like peppermint. Yum! (No, this is not edible. Well technically it is... but I wouldn't eat it...) Let's get started!

You will need:
- Red Food Coloring
- Peppermint Essentials Oil
- Mason Jar
- 2 cups of Sugar
- 1/4 cup of Coconut Oil
- Two spoons
- A cup with a flat bottom
- One medium/large sized bowl
- Two cereal-sized bowls


  1. Pour sugar into a medium/large sized bowl.
  2. Stir in the coconut oil.
  3. Add a few drops of the Peppermint Essentials Oil (a little goes a long way, so a few drops actually means a few drops!).
  4. Divide the sugar and coconut oil mixture into two equal sized portions into the two cereal-sized bowls.
  5. Mix in a few drops of red food coloring to one bowl (be careful not to add to much or you will have a super bright red).
  6. Using two spoons for each color, scoop the sugar mixtures to the mason jar, alternating the colors to look like a candy cane. (If you spoon the white mixture into the jar with the spoon for the red mixture, the colors will mix, so MAKE SURE YOU USE THE CORRECT SPOON!)
  7. Press the sugar down the bottom of the cup after each color layer to make it compact.
