I’ve received a few requests for the candy cane sugar scrub recipe after posting about my Christmas gifts. I made some of this last weekend, and it is AMAZING. Of course, if you don’t like peppermint you won’t like it! I doubled the recipe because I have a lot of women to give to!
1 cup granulated white sugar
6 candy canes, finely crushed almost into a powder
1/2 cup sweet almond oil (or olive oil)
1/2 teaspoon vitamin E oil (optional – used as a preservative)
1 teaspoon cocoa butter (optional)
6 drops peppermint essential oil
Mix all ingredients until well blended. I took and broke up my candy canes in a food processor first, and then combined all the ingredients together. I also left out the cocoa butter. It worked out really well; works fabulously and smells yummy!
