Candy Cane Peppermint Sugar Scrub - Homemade

It's that time of year... you know, the one where you become overwhelmed by the amount of candy canes that have over taken your life!  Just about everyone I know is looking for ways to cut corners but not feel like they are cutting corners.  Try this delicious (smelling, but don't eat it!) Peppermint Sugar Scrub as a great gift for friends and neighbors.  Be sure to leave yourself a jar for those moments when you decompress and have a little you time this holiday season!

Peppermint Sugar Scrub
Ingredients:
  • An empty jar with a lid (or you can use these cute little tins pictured above)
  • 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.

What a great idea, I bet this smells amazing! I would imagine that using the mini candy canes would be the easiest to crush - I can't wait to try it out!
