Homemade Peppermint Candy Cane Sugar Scrub

Okay, so I've been in denial but I guess I will have to admit the holidays are over!


So what on earth am I supposed to do with all these leftover candy canes? Then I remembered the amazing Peppermint Scrub I was shown how to make at the Albertsons Mom Blogger event last month! It's super easy, luxurious AND will sneakily dispose of all those candy canes... The instructions are below. :) Let me know any other easy self-pampering ideas you have!








Peppermint Scrub


An empty jar with a lid
1 cup granulated white sugar
6 candy canes/peppermint candy (approx ¼ cup), finely crushed into a powder
1/2 cup olive oil
6 drops peppermint essential oil (optional)


Pour the granulated white sugar and crushed peppermint into the jar. Put the lid on the jar and shake it to mix thoroughly until the ingredients are well blended. Pour the liquid ingredients into sugar mix. Put the lid on the jar and shake it to mix thoroughly until the ingredients are well blended. Label the jar as desired.


*P.S.
I have one that I have been using and LOVE it!!!!

That is really a cool idea! However, my family has already been sneakily disposing of them :-)
