I’ve been making this homemade peppermint body scrub recipe for over 5 years. With only 3 ingredients, it’s super simple to mix up and a great homemade, affordable gift to give to your friends and family.
Ingredients you’ll need:
Peppermint essential oil (do your own research on brand that you trust)
In a mixing bowl, put one cup coconut oil, one cup real salt, and about 5-10 drops of your favorite peppermint essential oil. Use a hand mixer to whip until it is smooth. Store in a glass jar in your shower.
The salt provides a gentle exfoliation of your skin, and the coconut oil leaves your skin smooth and hydrated. I love using this before I shave my legs, as a moisturizer after I’ve washed my body (you can skip the lotion then!) and as a massage oil to rub in to my shoulders or neck when I’m getting a headache. Use in the shower so you can rinse it away, but beware, it could make your shower slippery!
