This christmas I haven’t got very much money for christmas presents. Previous years I have always bought all of my presents. Since I still wanted to give nice gifts despite the lack of money I decided to make some.
For example I made peppermint sugar scrubs today. They look and smell really nice and I think my friends will be happy with them (hopefully)! To get the instructions for how to make this scrub click here.
One thing I noticed while making the scrub is that if you want a scrub that smells purely of peppermint be sure to buy a odourless coconut oil. If you don’t mind the combination of coconut and peppermint you can use the regular coconut oil. I ended up using the regular coconut oil and had to put in quite a lot of peppermint extract for it to smell more of peppermint than of coconut.
In the end it was quick and easy making this sugar scrub and not to expensive. I bought the jars but you could use old ones you have at home if you want to save even more money.
