DIY Mint Sugar Scrub

We came across this Homemade Mint Sugar Scrub recipe, and thought it was the perfect DIY gift idea! Inexpensive, aesthetic, and easy to make.

Inspired by Liz Fourez from Indiana, author of Love Grows Wild.


  • ½ cup coconut oil

  • 1½ - 2 cups sugar

  • 1 tablespoon peppermint extract

  • 1 drop pink or green food coloring (it just depends what color you want)


  1. Place coconut oil in a bowl and microwave on HIGH 15-25 seconds until softened.

  2. Start by adding 1½ cups sugar to the oil, along with the peppermint extract and green food coloring. Mix until ingredients are well combined and food coloring is evenly distributed. If mixture is too wet, add another ½ cup sugar until scrub is to desired consistency.

  3. Spoon scrub into air-tight containers (such as a mason jar) and decorate with twine or ribbon.
